Digital Leaders

1st March 2018

Exciting News!

A huge well done to the Digital Leaders from Year 5 who represented Gatehouse Primary Academy brilliantly at the Kidsmeet IT Event held at Westcliff Primary Academy on the afternoon of Thursday 22nd March 2018. 

The day was designed for children to share their experiences of using IT within their school and was attended by over one hundred children from ten schools in the Primary Trust.  A number of sponsors were also present including ICE Technology, who put on a workshop on virtual reality.

Each school had the rather daunting task of presenting a five minute talk and Josh, Charlotte, Leon, Caiden and Emily delivered a fantastic talk on “Green Screening” to a packed hall.   Excitingly, this presentation was judged to be the most creative presentation of the afternoon and won our school a prize of a year’s subscription to Radio 360 (which includes workshop sessions in school).  To top it all, Charlotte received the prize for the best individual presenter at the event!

Congratulations to the five children who took part.  You were a credit to our school!
