Media Students Support Local Charity with Promotional Film

mediamkcitizenWalton High Post 16 Media students were lucky enough to be asked by David Kelly to create a promotional film for his charity, A Way With Pain. The class collaborated to produce the film and we relished the chance to work with actress, Sian Reeves, who provided the voiceover for the media commission.

We used the school’s facilities, such as The Venue, lighting desk and the recording studio to create the film and soundtrack. Then we mixed the components together for the final edit. Our media class screened the film to David and Sian; the feedback received was hugely positive and the video can be located on the charity website www.awaywithpain.co.uk.

This was a fantastic experience for our class; having the chance to apply what we have learned in a truly vocational experience was brilliant and we learnt a lot about how to work with a professional client in the media industry.

Laura Bassett visits Walton High and JD Centre:MK in Milton Keynes.

England v Austria

Walton High students were very fortunate to receive a visit from England and Notts County Captain Laura Bassett before the Easter break. Laura was in Milton Keynes as England Ladies faced Austria at MK Dons’ Stadium MK on the 10th April, a game they won 3-0.

Laura helped to lead a coaching session alongside our own keen footballer Miss South. The students included members of the U13’s team, who this season won the local round of the EFL girls cup and then represented the MK Dons in getting to the quarter finals of the Regional EFL Girls Cup. She then answered questions from the girls and made time for photographs and autograph signing.

Thank you to everyone who joined us at both Rock Challenge at the Milton Keynes Theatre and Spring @TheVenue: Goes to the Movies at the end of last term.

Once again we are so proud of the number of students who participate in these performances and are always delighted to see the confidence, enthusiasm and talent of our young people.

At Rock Challenge students and staff were inspired by a number of the entries and how every school explored Dance and Performance in a variety of ways.   The support and camaraderie between the competing schools really was excellent and embodied the spirit of the Be Your Best Foundation.  We are excited to start preparing next year’s entry.  Students were thrilled to win three awards: these were for  Concept;  Entertainment;   and Costuming Character and once again would like to congratulate everyone involved.
