The PTA have supported the making of a film about the school by film maker Finn Barnaby who was in school on Friday with his cameras and drone!
Finn is an ex-pupil of Ryedale School and as well as a fully licensed drone pilot and film maker teaches piano to several Ryedale pupils.
Supported by Lizzie and Gareth from the PTA, plus Mrs Wilkinson who ensured everything went to plan, Finn filmed pupil and staff interviews as well as footage of school life. The day culminated, when all the pupils had left for home, with Finn using his drone to capture some incredible aerial shots. This will be used at the beginning and end of the film.
Finn now has the job of editing everything down to a 2-3 minute final product. This will be put on to the school website and also used at Primary Presentation evenings in the autumn.
A big thank you in particular to Mrs Wilkinson and to all the staff and pupils who bravely put themselves up for interview – everyone did a great job!
Here’s some photos to give you a flavour of the day:
