Student animators make screen debut

BEING in the program for the Heart of Gold School Festival is a big thrill for some Year 4 students from Gympie South.

The students were in production teams which developed animated films, some of which will be screened at this year's festival during October 27-29.

Heart of Gold School Festivals were so enjoyed by students in past years that teachers Jane Lennox and Chris Tollner, with encouragement and support from Gympie South's resource teacher Maria Wood, inspired the Year 4 students to make the animated films as part of their Local Area Studies.

This seven-minute collection features in the Prep to Year 4 sessions at the School Festival, hosted by James Nash High.

This family session will be re-screened each afternoon during the festival, from 4-5pm at James Nash High's I Block, near the front gate in Myall Street.

Students who've already attended the festival with their teachers have free entry; tickets for everyone else (over three years old) are $5, available at the door.

“The efforts of the students blend perfectly with Heart of Gold's mission”, said Heart of Gold board member Helen Crowley.

Ms Crowley said the door was open for other student films to be screened at the festival in future. Interested teachers should email info@heartofgold.com.au.
