Pupils at Kineton High School have been moved and inspired through speaking to D-Day veterans as part of a national project in which only six other schools took part.

The school was invited by the Normandy Day UK charity and the Coventry-based film company Jam-AV to take part in the Peace Through Unity project because, being so close to the military base at Temple Herdewyke, several pupils’ families have military connections.

After spending nine months working with the charity and Jam-AV on creating a film which depicts pupils’ interviews with D-Day veterans and a modern-day soldier who has recently served in Afghanistan, the key stage four and five pupils were invited to watch the premiere of their film at a project launch held at Coventry Cathedral last Friday, on the 70th anniversary of the D-Day Landings.
