Our school is taking part in an international project S-Factor.
On Tuesday, the 23rd of June 2015, we prepared an event at the Secondary School Črnomelj, to present the S-Factor project to the public.
The event was hosted and enriched with music by a singer-songwriter Erika Kralj. After the S-Factor introduction video, Matjaž Barič, the head teacher of Milke Šobar-Nataše Elementary School, welcomed the guests. The two mentors, Vlasta Lah and Ajda Skrbinšek, then shared some of their impressions from their S-Factor course in London on how to make a video.
Competitive part of the event followed, with the presentation of videos coming from six European countries. Without a doubt, our two videos received the biggest applause, a confirmation to the mentors for a job well done.
For the competitive part of the event, two juries were gathered. In the first jury there was the major of Črnomelj, Mojca Čemas Stjepanovič, head teacher of the Secondary School Črnomelj, Elizabeta Prus, journalist from our local TV station Vaš kanal, Verica Marušič, president of the jouth centre Bit Črnomelj, Klemen Vitkovič, chairman of the board of an insurance company Tilia, Andrej Kavšek, musician, Rober Strmec, film-maker, Uroš Raztresen, printer, Rober Glaser as well as two representatives from the parents board, Branka Joh and Roman Košmerl. The second jury consisted of Secondary School students, children from the Working centre VDC Črnomelj and children from our school.
The jury members looked at the videos very carefully and accordingly to the rules, voted for the best three videos.
Through video conference, we welcomed other project members from England and Greece. We also learned the results of the vote in England.
The best three videos will be presented at the main S-Factor event on the 9th of July in Sheffield, England.
We hope our two videos make it to the final.
You can see all the videos and vote for the best three until Friday, the 26th of June 2015, http://www.momentum-interactive.co.uk/.
