The 15th Java Jive event at Iroquois - an "open-mic-poetry-coffeehouse-night-of-awesomeness"
as teacher Laurie Farinia put it - raised $800 for the Best Buddies Program
on Friday, May 6, and featured original poetry and acoustic music from
students and teachers.
This year's Java Jive included a special collaboration with students in Rosehill Secondary College in Niddrie, Victoria, Australia, made possible by technology. Iroquois students and their Australian friends - connecting at 10 in the morning local time - collaborated on original poems and read them live at Java Jive.
Congratulations to all on a fun and successful event!
