Thursday Club's Safer Internet FilmFeb 10 2015
The Thursday club entered an Edinburgh council competition for Safer Internet Day. Our brief was to create a poster, film, poem, song or anything they liked to promote the message “lets create a safer internet together”. Our group put this fantastic film together in 2 weeks and all the ideas came from the young people.
We are very proud to announce we were shortlisted to the last 15 from a total of 160 entries and the council welcomed an application from a community group.
The young people involved were Toni, Trisha, Scott, Matthew, Kevin, Louise and Naomi A big CY thank you goes to them and the volunteer who filmed it for us.
