St Colm’s 10J again met up with their partner school Laurelhill from Lisburn as part of the ‘Together Building United Communities’ funded STEM initiative. Both schools met up at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum for 2 days of movie making.
Day 1 was devoted to planning, scripting and filming the movies. Each group, consisting of two pupils from each school, were allocated a particular genre, ranging from western, through horror to sci fi. Pupils donned period costumes and the budding new actors, actresses, directors and camera men and women panned their way through the day, making new friends and acquaintances as they created their block busters.
Take Two! - Day 2 was given over to editing and production where new skills were honed on the computer screen. At the end of the day all made their way to the ‘picture house’ in the folk park to view their Oscar winning performances.
Pupils, parents, family and friends are now invited to a Celebratory Day at the folk museum on Sunday 30th April. There will be a film and graduation ceremony following lunch and a ‘science of dragons’ family show. We hope to see you all there, whether you decide to travel under your own steam or avail of the free bus which will leave St Colms at 11:30am and returning at 5:30pm.
Please contact the school for more information.
