Calling all S1 & S2: BBC Competition

BBC LEARNING SCOTLAND wants your ideas for a short film.  A story about your local landscape.

And if your idea is selected you’ll win a development workshop for your school as well as a BBC director and crew to film your story. Cool eh?

It doesn’t matter if your landscape story is historical or modern, pure geography or a bit social-political we want to hear from you!

And the process couldn’t be simpler.

First pick your story.

Then work out what everyone needs to see and the order in which you want them to see it.

Finally, in no more than 300 words, write up your brilliant idea on our entry form and have your school email it to us.

Preston Doodle High School: National Doodle Day

Nationa Doodle Day

Doodle Day Logo

Get doodling for fun and charity.

Next week pupils in the Art Department will have the chance to make their contribution to the Doodling world. You don’t have to be an artist to enjoy doodling, if you don’t go to the Art department you can still be involved, just get doodling.

About Doodle Day

National Doodle Day is about having fun while raising funds to help people whose lives are affected by epilepsy and neurofibromatosis. Since the very first National Doodle Day in 2004 over £120,000 has been raised to help support the work of two charities, Epilepsy Action and the Neurofibromatosis Association.

This money has been raised by schools, by companies and individuals who have put pen to paper and simply doodled!

See some examples of doodles submitted by Celebrities and the National Doodle Day winners from last year. Click the links below.

We will make a collection for the charities on Doodle Day (Fri 27th) – bring along a pound.
