What if your present self could go back in time and give you some advice? What would you say? Well, a group of students at Central Huron Secondary School had plenty to say!
After watching the viral video “Dear 16 Year Old Me“, students in the communication technology program at Central Huron felt they could use this concept to talk to grade eight students. They wanted to offer them some words of assurance regarding their transition to high school. Armed with a concept and equipment; Brandon Sallows and Tyler Mitchell; ICT SHSM students, went around CHSS looking for students to participate.
There was no shortage of students that had bits of advice to offer. No students were given a script or told what to say, these are all heartfelt responses when asked the question ” If given the chance, what would you have told yourself about coming to high school?” Everyone remembered something they were concerned about, something that made them nervous about leaving elementary school. Since they had gone through it, they wanted to assure other students in the same situation that things would be just fine, and in many cases simply wonderful!
The finished video is something we are all very proud of. We thank all students who participated, without them it would not have been possible. We hope that this video will make a difference for students in grade 8.
