Award Winning Film

We were delighted to be announced as the winning primary school (8-12 years) in the ‘What’s Your Story’ movie competition for our video “Access Denied” which discussed what we would change about the internet, in particular issues relating to poor broadband, cyber safety and digital age of consent.

Entries to this  video competition to promote online safety, What’s Your Story, have overwhelmingly demonstrated that the Irish youth understand the need for balance in their digital lives. With a record number of entries this year to Trend Micro’s video competition, we were thrilled to be announced as category winners for Primary Schools in Ireland.

Judges of the What’s your Story competition span a diverse range of companies and organisations working in the area of internet safety, media literacy, and technology from organisations like WebWise, Young Irish Film Makers, TY Ireland, ReachOut, Facebook and Twitter.

Also judging the competition, Garry McHugh, Director of Young Irish Film Makers said, “The standard of film making was excellent across the board. The young film makers showed fantastic creativity, strong storytelling and a great sense of humour thrown in. I think we are looking at the next generation of content creators and film makers of Ireland.
