Biddenham School follows New Zealand PM and records lockdown achievements


Inspired by New Zealand Prime Minister Jacinda Ardern, Biddenham School has created a two-minute video to list all their achievements during the coronavirus lockdown.

The video challenge was started after the New Zealand PM’s team suggested she outline her government’s achievements in a two-minute video.

Not to be outdone, Biddenham School thought they’d have a go too.

“We produced this video primarily to celebrate, and recognise, just how much our Biddenham staff team have achieved in support of our students during the lockdown period,” said Principal David Bailey

The video was present by David and Head of School Eleanor Grylls, who admit the video was a little over the two-mintue mark but said they needed the extra time to “fit in all the staff achievements over the past four months”.
