They Shall Not Grow Old

This week we’ll be showing They Shall Not Grow Old –

They Shall Not Grow Old

– Peter Jackson’s new film which brings the First World War to life using technology to transform century-old footage from the First World War into HD colour. The film has been given a cinema rating of 15 as it contains content that some pupils may find upsetting. Pupils are asked to use their own discretion to decide whether the screening will be suitable for them.

Wednesday 7th, Thursday 8th  and Friday 9th 12.30-1.10pm.

You may bring a packed lunch, but pupils are asked to watch the film respectfully.

Doors closed from 12.40pm.

If you can’t make it don’t worry.  It will be shown on Sunday 11th of November on BBC2 at 9.30pm and will be available on BBC Iplayer.
