Olive the ostrich’s visit could spell TV success for primary school pupils

Profile image for Helston People

Pupils from two schools in Helston could find their flights of fancy recreated on the television screen after being chosen to take part in a unique workshop.

The youngsters from Trannack Primary School and Mullion Primary School yesterday were visited by Laura Ellison, who provides the voice of Olive – a young ostrich whose imaginary travels feature on a cartoon channel.

During the workshops, the children were encouraged to create the guest characters, places and objects that Olive meets on her wonderful adventures.

Many of these images will now be brought to life by Blue Zoo, the animation team behind Olive the Ostrich, which will be broadcast by Nick Jr, the pre-school version of children’s channel Nickelodeon.

The project has been brought to life thanks to a collaboration between Nickelodeon and The Prince’s Foundation for Children and the Arts, whose chief executive, Jeremy Newton, said it was a great way to fire children’s imaginations.

“This initiative will help children from all walks of life to explore their creative side while learning about the different processes of storytelling and film making and having fun at the same time.”
