An excited group of students and teachers gathered at Faro airport on friday 11 July to depart on their Oscar adventure in the UK. The students have been working on film and digital media project at Silves Sul School and their movies were entered into the Oscars at Wildern School in Southampton. Six films have been shortlisted and they will find out whose has been chosen as number one at the ceremony on Monday 14 July. The event is well known in the UK but this is the first time that students from other EU countries have submitted entries. Silves Rotary President Alan Winn is accompanying the students and will be awarding the Oscar for Best Animation. Silves Rotary Club has raised funds to enable the student and teacher exchange and to purchase resources for the students to use. It is hoped that the students will become digital leaders in this area and mentor other students across the Algarve. Watch out for the Algarve Oscars next year!
We will publish the result as soon as we know it.
