The competition was run by Safelinks and teachers Donna Crank and Matt Dever helped the students make a short video for the competition.

Priory finished runners-up and were sent rosettes and boxes of chocolate.

Their film will also be used in promotional material.

Words of praise from the judges included: “It gets straight to the point, conveys the message clearly and looks very professional, I love their little cardboard defibrillator.”

“It was well produced and gives the relevant information.

“Easy to understand what’s going on and it’s really well made and edited well”

“I loved the style of video and I loved that they really made an effort with making props.”
