100 Years Project

The song 100 Years was written and performed by the band Five For Fighting (actually, he is a solo artist named John Ondrasik).

Our class created a video around the idea that our lives have three stages: beginning, middle, late. The class movie shows pictures from the students' very young years (so cute!) and scenes of them around the school this year. Imbedded in the school photographs are clues as to some of the topics that we studied this year (ie. racism, goal setting, skeletal system...hockey!). A consistent theme throughout the movie is that everyone should have a passion, and they should set goals to help them achieve their dreams. As one grade 6 student reflected: “I learned that my skills are not static, anything can be improved."
Enjoy and “Game on”!
Mr. Grantham
