Messages are Beijing bound

12 August 2008

STUDENTS from Al-Hidayah Islamic School in Bentley will share the excitement of the Olympics with Chinese students as part of the Panasonic Olympic Games Kid Witness News (KWN) school program.

The school was selected to represent Western Australia in the national program that allows students to exchange cultural experiences with schools in Beijing via the internet during August and September.

Students will exchange video diaries about their school and home lives with students from Qinglongqiao Primary School in Beijing, using the filming and editing skills learnt as part of the KWN program.

Panasonic will provide an online translating service when messages are sent to assist with language difficulties.

Al-Hidayah Islamic School was one of six Australian schools selected from the KWN program, a national short film competition that allows 75 Australian schools to direct, shoot and star in a five-minute video using equipment provided by Panasonic.

It is the first year Al-Hidayah Islamic School has been involved with the program.

Winning films will be selected by a judging panel, with an awards ceremony to be held on the Gold Coast in September. For information about KWN, visit www.panasonic.com.au/kwn.
