Melville Intermediate - Video Collaboration with LochardilPrimary

Mr Webb wasn't at school on Friday, he was with the Melville Intermediate Girls Basketball team competing in the Kaitoa Middle School Basketball Tournament at the Sports Dome in Rotorua.  When the team returned Mr Webb found a stunning link through our class page! Our new friends from P6/7 Lochardil Primary School  from Iverness in Scotland have already replied to Jamie from Room Five questions with some wonderful comments.  Elizabeth left a further set of questions and Lochardil P6/7 have responded with a wonderful video answering our questions.  You can view their class page here.

Our orginal collaboration started with Jamie who located their class page with a google search - Jamie from Room Five left Lochardil Primary School their first every International comment, even though they'd had over 20,000 visitors! They responded to Jamies questions with some exceptional answers, and then asked us a set of questions so we in turn answered some of thier questions by
creating this video. P6/7 Lochardil Primary then responded to Elizabeth from Room Fives questions by creating the video at the start of this post.

On behalf of Melville Intermediate School I would like to thank all the students and staff of P6/7 Lochardil Primary School for their fantastic collaboration, we've done some in the past but the students of Room Five (and Melville Intermediate) are going to be so excited when they see this on Monday morning in class. Thank you.


  1. Wow! Lochardil Primary School are great ambassadors for Scotland. That was a very well presented and informative video :)

  3. Thank you both for your comments, we are thrilled with how the collaboration has developed and we are excited about what is still to come with both of you!

  4. Wow!! How fantastic. It is always great to make new connections with people in different countries. I hope that my class will be able to make a connection via our blog with an overseas school.

  5. Hi, Melville Intermediate School. We're really glad that you enjoyed our video - thank you for sharing it on your blog. We're loving our international link with you; it is great that we're both learning so much about each other's cultures.

    Thank you for the lovely comments from the other schools. We tried our best to capture Inverness and Scotland in our video.
