How cool is school?

They’ve got everything an artist needs: pencils, blank paper and time.

“It was wonderful to see all the children so engaged,” said one parent who attended the launch of Tufnell Park’s latest Learning Treat at assembly this morning. “I had to leave for work but I wanted to stay all day!”

The mystery subject is an ITC-based project that will have all the children from years 1-6 involved in making their own stop-go animation films.  The 10-second shorts will be screened at the end of Safer Internet Week, on Friday 12th February (last day of half term), and the show is open to all families for 50p a ticket, to be donated to Childnet.  It’s after school at 3:30pm: put the date in your diary, because it’s already sounding unmissable.

Before then, help from parents and carers is needed to get all those movies made.  If you’ve got any time on Thursday 14th, Friday 15th or Thursday 28th January and you’d like to be part of it, please contact the HSA and we’ll let Ms del Pozo know.  You certainly don’t need to be any kind of expert – the animators from Film & Video workshop are running the project, and will tell you all you need to know.
