I posted a message on Twitter the other day (feel free to follow me, I’m @clara_mac) saying that anyone who worked in education not moved by this film should leave the profession, now. I stand by that, but Sighthill Stories is more than a film about a school. It’s about communities and change – but it’s never po-faced or worthy. That’s because the kids tell the stories. And these kids have stories to tell.
I must have watched this programme about four times now, partly because it’s brilliant and partly because it expires on Wednesday (grrr…). I know it’s short notice, but do yourselves a favour and download it, especially those readers not in Scotland, who will probably never have the chance to see it. I really hope that it does get shown again on network telly for everyone to enjoy, because every town will have stories like this – I’m just glad that Glasgow had the chance to tell theirs in such a wonderful way.
