Cessnock East Public School’s stage one students would like to hear from past students and teachers from their school.
As part of the school’s REAL (rigorous, engaging, authentic learning) project this term, the year one and two students will be producing a short film on future-focused learning and will explore how teaching and learning has evolved at the school over time.
The students are excited about the project, and looking forward to learning to use the film-making equipment and hearing about the school’s past.
Technology, toys, lunch, uniforms and bell times are among the topics they address with their interviewees.
The film will be shown at the school’s film festival at the conclusion of the project.
“Cessnock East celebrates 90 years of quality teaching and learning this year, and we would like to share our journey with the wider community,” stage one teacher Ally Robinson said.
Anyone who would like to be interviewed for the project is encouraged to contact the school on 4990 1549 or firstname.lastname@example.org by February 28.
The film is part of Cessnock East’s whole-school REAL project for term one, called Lights, Camera, Action.
The project was launched on the first day of term one, when the students received a red-carpet arrival to start the new year.
