It is finally here – our much anticipated SIS Galileo Virtual Tour viewing! This was a huge accomplishment for us and was also a team effort which shows the true spirit of Galileo! Creating this video was a great experience and will allow everyone to see the amazing learning that goes on within our walls. A special thank you to Miss Lisa Trotto for pioneering this project, Lu Termini videographer, and to Stephanie Pizzuto and Grant Jeffrey for enhancing our vision and adding a professional touch to the final product! Thank you to Martina & Santina for your encouragement!
On April 15th in Miss Lisa Trotto and Miss Brigida’s SIS class held our very first in-school SIS Film Festival which showcased our amazing SIS students’ digital stories! The event was a smashing success and students received their awards during the ceremony and took part in a Q&A with the audience! We are so proud of their diligent work and they deserve to be celebrated! Thank you to all who attended! We partnered up with Jessie Curell (Founder and Director of Hands on Media) along with Learn Quebec to take part in the I Belong digital storytelling project! 60 schools from across Quebec participate each year and we are so excited to take part while proudly representing the special needs community. This project has allowed our students to hone their newly acquired digital media creation skills and allowed them to further explore features of film making, photography, original digital music creation using Garage Band as well as the iMovie app. Inspirations News took an interest in our project and two of our SIS students who took part in this project (Alex Ponte and Alexis Gerin-Lajoie were then interviewed by Mark Bergman!
