Students at a Moray high school have created a film to try and make the move from primary school less daunting.
Pupils of all ages at Milne’s High School in Fochabers took part in the project, resulting in a 10 minute film entitled Getting It Right.
It shows pupils weaving their way through the school campus, describing buzz words under various headings such as safe, healthy, active, achieving, respected and included.
Principal guidance teacher Charles McGuire helped devise the script for the film, but it was the students themselves who operates the camera and sound equipment before Moray Council staff edited it.
Laurence Findlay, director of education and social work for the local authority, said the wellbeing issue was a major factor in ensuring young people got the most from school.
He said: “I am delighted that Charles McGuire and his students have shown such innovation by preparing this film which really showcases the importance of wellbeing through the eyes of young people themselves.
“This will be shown across Moray schools and we also hope to prepare a primary school version in due course.
“High quality materials such as this, developed by our staff and students will really serve to highlight the importance of the Getting It Right For Every Child Agenda and I commend their work.”
The film has already been well received by pupils, parents and Moray Council’s education staff, and it will be used this year and next year for 2016 transitions.
It is being used in secondary schools throughout Moray and is also available on YouTube.
