Paralympian swimmer Sophie Pascoe today joined Christchurch school kids stencilling their faces onto hoardings in Re:Start Mall.

The collaborative project, part of a Scape Public Art project, introduced the children to street art in the city.

By the end of May, the hoarding will be covered in portrait stencils from schools around the city.

Pascoe said her stencil, which she cut out herself, turned out ''better than expected''.

The stencils were created from photographs.
