GLITZ and glamour was the theme of the morning as aspiring actors put on their best attire to attend an Oscar-style event to recognise their dedicated film making efforts.
Pupils from South Hiendley J&I school were excited to see their productions on the big screen last Friday at Xscape, Castleford in the hope of receiving their very own award.
The gold-coloured Oscars – called Moscars – were awarded for documentaries, narration, animation, and costume.
Lisa Corson, headteacher at the George Street school said the children have really enjoyed creating the films.
She said: “They have written scripts, acted in the films and created animations so they have done a wide range of tasks and I am very proud of what they have achieved.”
More than 100 children took part in the Open Future Scheme which asks pupils to look at four aspects of learning; film it, ask it, grow it and cook it.
And not only did they create films but also baked the variety of tasty goodies that were offered at the pre-screening party.
Youngsters from Mill Dam J&I in Pontefract and Kingsland School in Wakefield also took part in the event. Actress Suzanne Collins – of Brookside fame – hosted the ceremony.
