A multi media team from Cliftonville Primary wowed head teachers from across Kent at their annual conference.
The media crew from year 5 and 4 used ipad technology to film, photograph and record the two-day event at the Ashford International Hotel.
The roving film crew interviewed Kent Association of Head Teachers delegates from a variety of schools as well as Kent’s Director of Learning Patrick Leeson, KCC leader Cllr Paul Carter, and Vic Goddard, the headteacher whose school was featured in the Educating Essex television show.
Mr Goddard said: “The interview was fantastic. I was really impressed with the questions they asked and with how professionally they all went about their different tasks.”
The school team delivered workshops demonstrating their use of green screen television and a radio studio as part of their learning, supported by two student mentors from Hartsdown Academy and staff members.
They also put together a short presentation and DVD film of their work at the conference, which was presented on stage at the end of the event.
Head teacher Jane Troth said: “The whole crew were fantastic. They belied their years by pitching themselves headlong into a major educational conference – they were fearless. They impressed so many people with their skills and enthusiasm, and they really enjoyed the experience. The idea was to show how far their learning has developed using ipad technology and it was a big hit – it certainly showed the diverse range of learning opportunities that we are using at Cliftonville. It was a hectic and tiring two days but the students and the staff who supported them did a great job. I am proud of them all.”
