The icing on the cake of what has been a truly remarkable activities week came yesterday afternoon when we received news that one of our pupil entries in the national ‘Your Landscape, Our Crew’ competition has been selected by a BBC panel to be one of 5 films to be produced as part of the BBC Landscape Series this summer.
Kyle Davidson and James Armstrong are the winning pupils who entered a story board based around the Battle of Preston Pans.
Final details are still to be arranged but at some point between the 14th and 25th June Kyle and James will be joined by a further 16 lucky S1 and S2 pupils for a day long workshop with a BBC Film Crew where they will assist in the production of the film.
A fantastic achievement for all concerned including Marrion Morris who worked closely with the boys and also Gillian Duthie who helped with one of the other two entries. The three entries submitted were all deemed very strong contenders but alas only one could win. The teams led by Siobhan Sharp, Kieran Grieg and Emma Ferrier should also be congratulated on their efforts.
