St Mary's school Year 9 students will compose a short video of the Manx shearwater chick footage captured on trail cameras in September. As part of their coursework, they will add music and the winner's video will deliver key messages in the most creative and informative way and be uploaded to the project's website. 

The class learnt about the project today and learnt how exciting this footage really is - capturing those chicks as they emerge from burrows, the first chicks to survive on St Agnes and Gugh in living memory!


Good luck class and we look forward to judging the winner at Easter. We are sure all your projects will be great though!
