  • Personal Project Survey (Repeat)

Hello. My name is Sayo and for my Personal Project, I am collecting data about food allergies. It would be really helpful if you can take a few minutes to fill out this survey, especially for those who have a food allergy. You will need to log in to your YIS account to take the survey, but the survey will NOT keep track of your username, so you are anonymous.

Thank you, (Sayo Grade 10)

  • Society’s Impact On Teenagers Fashion Survey (Repeat)

For personal project, I’m researching about

  • “The End of the Sidewalk” (Repeat)

Dear High School Students,

My name is Sarah Brauer and I’m a junior. I am currently directing a film called “The End of the Sidewalk” with the co-director Eduardo Espinosa. The story follows a girl and a boy, both of which are depressed for different reasons, and development of their friendship and helping each other with their problems. We are going to be having auditions for the roles on Monday (4:30~5:30) and Friday (4:00~5:30), after school in Mrs. Macdonald’s drama room, where we will be providing you with parts of the script to act out. We will be looking at expressing emotions, commitment and interest in the film, and flexibility in time. The film will be entered into the Kanto plains film festival, and will count towards CAS for 11 and 12 grades.

Please note: Actors will have to pay for any transportation to get to sets.

Please be advised: some parts contain strong language and/or violence so any student auditioning needs to be aware of this. Also, as the play explores mental health issues, the issue of self-harming behavior is explored in this film.

The roles to try out for:

  • Main roles
  • Charlie
  • Anne
  • Other characters:
  • Alcoholic-Abusive father
  • Mother
  • Film extras
  • Bruno (bouncer)
  • friends
  • teacher
  • partiers

If you are interested in acting in the film please come along on either Monday or Friday to try out, or drop in to show your interest if you are not free on those days to audition.
