Peterborough Schools Film Awards
Published on 08/07/14
The Peterborough Children and Young People film awards (known fondly as the ‘POSCARS’) have been taking place since 2006; and this year e4education were delighted to be one of the proud sponsors of the event.
Over 1,000 children, parents, teachers and special guests attended two evenings of glamour and fame, the first, for secondary school students at Voyager school and the second at Kingsgate community conference centre for primary students.
Each year group had to create, direct and produce a short film. The theme“remember the fallen” was chosen to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings, and some schools produced incredibly thought provoking and emotional films.
Just like the Oscars, each award was presented by a‘VIP’ guest, most notably by film stars Anna Friel and Warwick Davies respectively.
On Thursday 3rd of July, it was the primary schools who took to the red carpet. The categories branched from Superheroes and Comedy to Documentary and Drama, and the first prize of the evening was presented by our Managing Director, John Roach e4education.
“As a company, we are incredibly proud of our reputation for supporting the local community and giving something back. Sponsoring such a ceremony really shows our care and commitment towards Peterborough schools and pupils.”
John presented two awards at the ceremonies, the year 11 group film and also the foundation stage film. In the year 11 category, Ormiston Bushfield claimed the prize and in the foundation category Hampton Hargate were winners.
“Every schools film was a triumph” said John, “watching children of all ages having fun whilst being educated is just fantastic”.
“It would be great to see many more schools taking part in such a wonderful event!”
