Movie Screening Reminder – 27.10.16

Just a quick reminder to put the Screening of the Most Likely to Succeed movie in your diary for the  27th of October!

This movie has had fantastic reviews globally and is really challenging the current concept of schooling and what it means for our children’s future.

We would like to start at 6.30pm with tea and coffee in the S5 space on the Unlimited Campus and then head over to the Jack Mann Auditorium for a 7pm screening. The movie runs for 89 minutes.
 
This movie is appropriate for all ages and children are welcome. However to appreciate the message it is probably more suitable for Year 6 and above.
 
The current educational system in the United States was developed a century ago during the rise of the industrial age and was once the envy of the world. However, the world economy has since transformed profoundly, but the US education system has not. Schools are attempting to teach and test skills, when mastered, that still leave graduates woefully unprepared for the 21st Century. After presenting this problem, the documentary focuses on the story of a school in San Diego that is completely rethinking what the experience of going to school looks like. As we follow students, parents and teachers through a truly unorthodox school experience, the audience is forced to consider what sort of educational environment is most likely to succeed in the 21st century?
 
 
Looking forward to seeing you all there…
