I have received lots more positive feedback from schools that have seen my Fixers film.
Here are some of their comments:
Katrina Borowski (Eggbuckland Community College): “What a stunning project - you should all be extremely proud of what you have achieved and the poignant message that you have communicated so clearly.”
John Stephens (Headteacher, Goosewell School): “Well done on such a well presented DVD. You are examples of excellence for our young people in Plymouth. You capture the emotions of a service child succinctly in your film. Thank you for your time, honesty and role as ambassadors.”
Louise Frost (Ridgeway School): “An excellent film and very moving. There were quite a few tears at the end and a long silence! I had one teacher tell me they felt guilty that they had never thought about the service students and what they may go through.”
John Didymus (Head Teacher at Ridgeway School): “Having viewed the film ‘At your service’ on two previous occasions I had anticipated it would strike a chord with staff. However, I had not realised the significance of the film for those staff with direct experience of service family life. Whilst we do have many very successful children with parents or relatives in service families there are clearly hidden emotions portrayed in the film that we may wish to reflect on when working with this group of students.”

Our film premiered in at the Royal Citadel in Plymouth and was attended by Lord Mayor Vivien Pengelly, Commanding Officer of city-based 29 Commando Regiment, Lt Col Ed Dawes, and Heather Ogburn from HMS Heroes.
Lord Mayor Vivien Pengelly:
'Well done to everyone involved in the video 'At Your Service.' A wonderful piece of work. All the very best for the future.'
James Yates from the Marine Academy Plymouth:
'Well done on such a moving video. As a teacher I will definitely show it in our school.'
Chris (Royal Navy Captain):
'A brilliant film, really well made and incredibly thoughtful and thought provoking. I wish my 3 children had had such support when I was away.'
