Hello. Just wanted to say a big 'Thank you' to Fred D. He is paying for a movie license, so that Sam Sherratt Public School can have movie nights. Last night was Moana, and was well attended (although not as busy as the previous movie night, which was earlier in the year). Hopefully, with more events, the school will have enough money to get their new projection system. Way to go Fred!

Fred is def good people.

Movie nights are fun -- we attended as well. I'm sure attendance in the fall will be better -- its just too nice out!

There is a copyright exemption if you claim showing the film has some educational value (not just for entertainment) under C11

Congrats to Fred but it absurd to think ACF is profiting from license sales that do not give a penny back to the actual film makers

I'm pretty sure Moana and Sing wouldn't cut the educational value...

Its a fun event with the kids and their friends and does fundraising for different things at the school.

ACF has agreements with Disney -- I'm not sure what you mean it doesn't give a penny back to the actual film makers -- you are frustrated that Disney gets the money and not the people that worked on the film? Isn't that par for the course that movie studios pocket all kinds of revenue and don't share it with the 'workers'.

Mr. Peppermint is just salty about everything. Even children watching animated movies as part of a school's fundraising mission. Great guy to have around at parties (when it's time for everyone to go home).

Thanks guys, sorry I only saw this post now ... Crazy market out there :)
I will do as much as I can to help - Sam Sherratt is such a fantastic school, and if such a small gesture can bring some fun and smiles to lots of people, it's an easy decision!

The first movie night in the spring was a massive hit and we were packed wall to wall. This 2nd one we expected a smaller turnout, not only due to the weather but because kids summer sports have started up taking up many family's evenings.
We will be back in the fall for more !
Lots of great volunteers, donations of snacks and prizes, fun 'photo booth' wall and more... When my wife has her hands in organizing anything, there's no half-assing going on lol!

Thanks also to school council... So much great help!

Thanks for the post :)

Another thank you to Fred, for sponsoring the movie night at Sam Sherratt Public School. Boy, those couches made it easier to watch Lego Batman! Will try again next time too. Thanks to your wife and parent council for all their hard work too!

The school council does a ton of great work for the various events. With the new Principal and VP, I think even more pressure has been put on council to ease the stress of continuity into this year. They've stepped up and done a fantastic job!
A couple of weeks ago, there was an 'Active Chefs' event where the kids got to prepare dinner for almost 100 people, learning about different foods from around the world - another success!

Thanks again for the post :) Most importantly, thanks again to ALL the student and parent volunteers, not only at Sam Sherratt, but at ALL the schools in town - It definitely helps enhance the kids' overall school experience!
