“An exhibition of their artworks was held on Tuesday, where family, friends and teachers were invited to join in the celebrations,” Linda said.

“A special thank you to master artist Jade Holborow and Heart to Heart founder Donna Rankin for joining us and leading the students through their Heart to Heart journey.

“Students were given their paintbrush, a set of Mindful Activity Cards and some other special gifts.
