Through the Information and Communications Technology SHSM (Specialist High Skills Major) program at St. Theresa of Lisieux Catholic High School, approximately 250 students enjoyed a special opportunity to learn about- and experience a Disney movie pre-screening.
On February 4th, students from the Richmond Hill school were invited to attend a pre-screening of the new Disney movie, McFarland, at the local Silver City movie theatre. The sports-drama film is based on the real life story of Jim White, a high school gym teacher who builds and inspires a Latino cross-country team.
The day after students attended the pre-screening, St. Theresa of Lisieux CHS held a special assembly with guest presenter, Jim White. Jim spoke about how he overcame various challenges in his life and his experiences with the cross-country team. Students also had the opportunity to ask Jim questions. School Board officials and dignitaries were also in attendance for this special event.
