Participating students, LegendizeU
School Librarian, Jori Daniel, interviews Principal, Sherry Ann Boodram to get her feedback
J.D: Based on the information given about the project and seeing the end result with the prize giving, what are your thoughts on the project?
S.B: Excellent! It showcases different talents - spoken word, short story, video. It gives students a chance to excel and showcase their talents.
J.D: How do you see this impacting the students who participated and the students who did not participate?
S.B: Greater self-esteem on the part of those who took part - something for others to aspire to so they may do it next time. It is a great motivational tool…it inculcates a sense of self worth.
J.D: Do you see the project working as a bridge between the school and the community?
S.B: Definitely, by bringing all age groups together and showing appreciation for our elders.
J.D: What is your endorsement of the project? Do want it to come back to your school? Would you like to see it in other schools and why?
S.B: Most definitely, I hope to see you all next year. I will be telling my colleagues in the South Eastern Education District about this innovating and excellent idea.
