At the end of last term, Mrs Burke, St John Fisher’s Music Teacher, suggested that the school should enter a competition to win a brand new, state of the art, interactive whiteboard from the Promethean company. So, with some creative and technical assistance from Mr Perkins, Year 6 teacher, she set about making a short video demonstrating that St John Fisher would make great use of a new interactive whiteboard.
A talented cast of students was recruited, the video was created and the competition entered.
We were informed recently that we had won one of these amazing new whiteboards! Hearty congratulations to Mrs Burke, Mr Perkins and the award winning cast! The board will be installed soon and the Music Room will have a fantastic new resource thanks to the fantastic efforts of Mrs Burke, Mrs Perkins and the crew!
Technical information: The backing was created in Garage Band – a program that year 5 and 6 have been exploring. The lyrics were created with Year 6 students from last year in music class. The video was edited using the IPAD app Movie Maker whilst the audio was edited in Audacity and combined with the Garage Band backing track.
