The Lester B. Pearson School Board is proud to present "J’apprends à vivre" , an innovative music video experience bringing the Lester B. Pearson School Board together in celebration of our 20th anniversary.This project is the collection of different student voices that tell the most compelling story, and that is the heart of "J’apprends à vivre".
Two LBPSB graduates: Toby and Daniela composed the music and wrote the lyrics. We are so proud them, their talents, and their ability to convey the experiences of our youngest students; taking their first steps in our schools, as well as of our graduating students as they reflect on all their experiences as they embark on their next chapters.
Students from eight schools, elementary and secondary, were involved in this project. Additionally, after months of rehearsals, 250 students came together to perform "J’apprends à vivre" at our TOPS concert event. It was an unbelievable performance that brought the audience to its feet.
Following the performance, the musical and video recordings were mixed and edited together to create an extraordinary music video, which we are thrilled to share with you.
We must acknowledge our maestro extraordinare for this project. "J’apprends à vivre" would not be possible without the coordination and leadership of Susan Strunc. In addition to teaching music, and mentoring and nurturing Lindsay Place High School music students, Susan oversaw every aspect of this project. From the songwriting and composition, to providing support to the music teachers, and students. On behalf of the LBPSB, we thank Susan Strunc for making "J’apprends à vivre".
Schools involved: Lindsay Place High School, Clearpoint, Forest Hill Senior, St. Edmund, Dorval Elementary, St. John Fisher Sr., Riverview, Allion
