Ulverston school to premier pupils film

AN open invitation has been issued to staff and former pupils at an Ulverston school.

Church Walk Primary School, in Ulverston, has created a documentary film about the school.

Year 3 pupils collaborated with artist Steve Fairclough, visual artist Vanessa Card and film-maker, Jon Randal to create the film.

It will be premiered at the school on Saturday at noon.

The film forms part of this celebratory event - along with other work by the artists.

Some early drama work stood them in good stead to cast the children into a variety of roles, taking photos, speaking on camera, filming and designing.

Mr Fairclough said: "I think we timed things well having led into the project with some drama work, then some film and then design.

“We have taken lots of photographs to document the project and as we head towards the end, everything seems to be coming together."

The project involved exploring some of the history of the school, examining the present day and looking towards the future.

Mr Randal added: “It’s been great to work with the pupils in exploring past, present and future lives at Church Walk School and unearthing some of the stories that form a part of its rich history.’

“The design elements of the project also proved popular with the children, allowing them to draw and paint alongside the work of the artist.

“They enjoyed seeing the developments of the memory box from week to week.”

The project was funded by Sir John Fisher Foundation and Bryan Lancaster Charity.
