Room 19 spent a term learning about two Mighty Teenage Mariners called Jesse Martin and Jessica Watson.  During their study 'Boy' the movie was released.  The movie inspired the students to recreate their own snippet of 'Boy' using 'Jesse Martin' as the main character.  This film was written, planned, animated, filmed and edited by Year 7 students.  We hope you enjoy 'Jesse'.

  2. Hi ROOM 19.....

    'WOW!!!!' I am breathless!!!! That was nearly as good as boy as the movie itself!!! That was a good thing using things like Captain Cook moves, Sail, and the man himself, Captain James Cook!!! Keep up the good work.
