Children at St Stephen's De La Salle have created a movie as part of a national competition. The short film, entitled Disasters, was made with the guidance of their teacher Trystan Russell. It documents the global catastrophes of the 9 /11 terrorist attacks 20 years ago, and the sinking of the Titanic in 2012. Disasters has been entered into the Fís Film Awards 2021. We'll find out who the winners are later this month. In fact, Disasters already won a prize in the national competition in March. It picked up an accolade for the storyboard of the film, in the 3rd and 4th Class category

FÍS is a film project currently in primary schools across Ireland. The initiative encourages children to explore the medium of film in the primary classroom developing essential skills in moving-image literacy, communication, teamwork, visual arts and even numeracy. You'll find out more here.
Best of luck to all the children involved and of course their teacher Mr Russell!
