YOUNGSTERS at The Grange School in Daventry got the red carpet tratement when they premiered a film they made themselves.

The Year Four pupils teamed up with Daventry District Council (DDC) for the film showcasing what was on offer at Daventry Country Park.

As part of the project, the pupils filmed at various locations and interviewed the park’s countryside rangers about what can be done.

The premiere took place on Friday last week at the school with the parents of all the children involved in the project attending to see their child’s work.

The school’s assistant headteacher, Vicki Masters, said: “We are extremely 
fortunate at The Grange School to be one of only a small number of schools in the country to have their own film studio.

“Our pupils enjoy being able to use the studio and equipment to enhance their work across all areas of the curriculum.

“We were thrilled to work so closely with DDC and the staff at Daventry Country Park to create a series of films showcasing the park through the different seasons of the year.

“We hope people who see it enjoy watching our films as much as we are enjoying making them.”

Following the film’s screening, it will be available to watch on TV in the visitors centre at Daventry Country Park, the school’s reception and on DDCs website.

DDC’s community, culture and leisure portfolio holder, Cllr Alan Hills, said: “Thanks to the kind donation of a TV by Cummins last year we are in a position to promote this fantastic facility in the heart of Daventry. Year Four pupils from The Grange School offered to produce a short film that explains what visitors to the country park can do and see. They have done a fantastic job and I hope that the film will be the first of many reflecting the changing seasons in the park.”
