Silver screenstars' success

Faifield High Pupils

INTREPID teenagers have had their award winning movie premiered in Manchester.
Fairfield pupils created an imaginative dance, warning of the dangers of smoking -in a 59 second film!
Teacher, Ailsa McPhee, said: "It is just a special moment to see the product of the pupils' ideas and hard work up there on the big screen for everyone to see!
"It is a real achievement and wonderful to see boys and girls from different years working on their own ideas, being enthusiastic about dance and making sure their anti-smoking message hits home."
Arcane Dance Company invited Halton pupils to enter 'Challenge 59' with prizewinners offered the chance to work with a professional director and artists.

Fairfield High School is now offering families the chance to learn the art of film making.
Fairfield Family Film Club will run on Wednesday afternoons from 4pm-6pm.
Media development officer, Gary Smith, said: "Have you ever wanted to be a film director, producer, editor or cameraman?
"Would you love to make professional looking home movies of weddings or sporting triumphs? If so, come along."
Call Gary on 0151 423 3571 ext 321, before October 19. Only 12 places are available.
