Here’s a new Animoto video –  a sampler of the many ways the Library is used. It includes a 6th form Theory of Knowedge lesson-  testing their taste perception, author Bali Rai’s visit with a group from The Wellington Academy in Tidworth, 3rd form Carnegie Shadowers, DT research on the iPads, Red Nose Day Fancy Dress – who is that penguin?

Can you spot yourself?
