Friday evening saw a presentation by Liam Sanderson, head of Film and Media Studies at the Wales High School near Sheffield. His presentation was both enjoyable and enlightening, showing the amazing progression from the students’ first attempts at film making to the world wide award winning productions produced later in their studies.

This afternoon, Chorley PS took top spot in the 2017 Annual Clubs Competition. Joint second place went to the Evolve Group and Warrington PS (who were mentioned many times throughout the competition!).
The entire competition ran rapidly and smoothly, thanks to the software systems produced by Adrian Lines, and the efforts of the ‘back room boys’ under the guidance of competition secretary Bob Robinson.
