Valley’s Beachcombers Acadamy students release Pandemic Happy Song video

  • May. 7, 2020 6:00 a.m.

Beachcombers Academy students and staff have just released their Pandemic Happy Song video.

As a result of the pandemic restriction on face-to-face education, Beachcombers students have been engaged in their school program from home since late March.

In addition to working on their core academics, students have also been engaging in their “passion projects” one of which has been the creation of the Pandemic Happy Song video. Students in grades one to seven created images and videos to depict their happy pandemic activities, to show love and care, and to remind all that change brings new beginnings.

The video was co-produced and edited by grade five student Max Napier.

“A big shout out goes to Max. He put a lot of time into producing and editing the video,” said co-producer Dr. Matt Maxwell, the academy’s music teacher.

“He learned a whole set of new skills and received some outside training on editing. The video also includes some stop motion animation by grade six student Ethan Ennis as well as photography and videography by Beachcombers students.”

The song titled Pandemic Happy Song was written and performed by Dr. Matt Maxwell, with back-up vocals by Comox Valley’s Juno award-winning musician Helen Austin.
