Actor Warwick Davis presents MTN Awards
Pupils from St Mary's CofE VA Primary School in Cambridgeshire, England, almost swept the board at this week's Making The News competition awards ceremony, hosted by EasyNet and presented by actor Warwick Davis at the BETT show in London's Olympia. The children from this particular school are so keen on the system, they have even had T-shirts printed for their most regular contributors.
Making The News, a spinoff of the long-term news dissemination project ROSTRA, is in use by hundreds of schools across England, Wales and Scotland for pupils to post stories, articles and interviews on a wide variety of subjects.
Warwick Davis, star of countless movies since the age of 11, including Star Wars - Return of the Jedi and three Harry Potter films, lives near Peterborough and had already visited a number of the schools who make regular use of MTN.
BETT is the world's leading educational information & communications technologies event, bringing together the global teaching and learning community for four days of innovations and inspirations.
