Hollywood Hits Torrington!

Great Torrington got a touch of Hollywood glitz and glamour as the red carpet was laid out in preparation for the arrival of some top film stars. The stars were of course our year 6 children who were premiering their end of term film ‘Go For Gold’ at The Plough Arts Centre on Tuesday 17th July. There was an audible gasp as the children caught their first glimpse of the red carpet as they emerged from around the corner, but they soon got into the swing of the occasion as they were ‘papped’ entering the building! 

The children, along with year 6 teachers Mrs Drew, Mr Strode and Mrs Hay, had been working tirelessly on the project and they were so excited to be in the auditorium waiting for their first look at the finished product. Many parents and carers also came along to the event which made it all the more special.

An Oscars ceremony followed the film which was ably presented by Grace and Jonah. The anticipation was tangible as the awards were read out…..

There was also a mystery award presented by Ms Fleming to Mr Tennant for his 32 years of service at Torrington Juniors/Bluecoat Primary. Mr Tennant explained how his job had been made easy as the children of Torrington were “the best”.

This really was a very special occasion and one where many happy memories were made. 

Thank you to RHS Garden Rosemoor for kindly lending us the red carpet and to The Plough Arts Centre for hiring us the space.
