Prospective students and parents have many questions when entering a new school. In Australia Year 7 is the start of High, or Secondary School. Central Coast Grammar School has created a series of videos where students explain some aspect of their experience joining the school in Year 7, plus the impact the school has had on them since.

Each story is 60 seconds or less. Rather than showing the faces of Natasha, Patrick and Matthew the video visuals are simply of the school grounds from a drone. I believe this approach allows the listener to not be distracted by the student’s personal appearance but rather connect with their emotional experience. It may also have helped convince the students to be involved as teenagers can be quite self-conscious. It could have the additional advantage of allowing the videos to be used for longer by the school.
