School Twinning Videos

We are very excited to be trying a new form of communication between our twinned schools in Canada and Kenya.

Students at the schools will be taking us on video tours that we will share throughout the year.

Here is our first video from Stratford Elementary School in Stratford, Prince Edward Island.

Did you know that Farmers Helping Farmers has a YouTube channel?

Visit it here to see some videos from Kenya.

"How To" Guide for making a video in Kenya:

Ask the principal (head teacher) for two students to “host” the video - if possible, one male and one female would be nice.

They need to be enthusiastic and not shy.

Make sure you get their names to send to Nancy!

To gather video:

*make sure the iPad is the right way up - with the camera lens at the top!

Please record at least 10 seconds of each shot.

You want to shoot things close-up as well as wide shots to help with editing.

  1.  Introduction - with the school behind - the students say their names and welcome  - Karibu - and the name of the school

  2. Pan of the school grounds   (holding the iPad steady - move it slowly from left to right )
