JIMMY - overcoming hardship/choices
JIMMY is an emotional song written by a grade 3 class at Topham Elementary School in Langley, BC. Students focussed on the topic of kindness and choices, and through much discussion and brainstorming, came up with a plan to write a storied song about a boy who grew up in difficult circumstances, and who overcame them, chose to live with kindness, and become a man with a heart of gold. It was a pleasure watching the passion this class brought to the process. Their ownership and pride was palpable.
