THE Na­tional Theatre of Scot­land chose Achaleven Pri­mary School in Con­nel as part of a spe­cial na­tion­wide pho­tog­ra­phy project.

A project by cel­e­brated Scot­tish pho­tog­ra­pher John G Moore was com­mis­sioned to cap­ture six dif­fer­ent lo­ca­tions across Scot­land, and Achaleven school was cho­sen to show­case Ar­gyll.

A neon sign say­ing ‘ BOX OF­FICE’ was de­signed by the com­pany to travel around the coun­try re­flect­ing the many Scot­tish tours, by road, the Na­tional Theatre of Scot­land un­der­takes ev­ery year.

The sign was taken to Achaleven Pri­mary this spring where it was pho­tographed in a class­room.

John said: ‘It was a plea­sure work­ing on such an ex­cit­ing and cre­ative project with the Na­tional Theatre of Scot­land.

‘The images all con­trib­ute to telling a unique vis­ual story about the com­pany, cap­tur­ing its na­tional reach, its bold pro­duc­tions and the dif­fer­ent and some­times un­usual lo­ca­tions that the com­pany plays in.’

Sharon Burt, head teacher at Achaleven, added: ‘We were very ex­cited to be in­volved in this project. The Na­tional Theatre of Scot­land’s school pro­duc­tions en­cap­su­late the ex­pres­sive arts and the cur­ricu­lum in a very en­gag­ing way and help in­spire pupils who want to pur­sue a ca­reer in the cre­ative arts.’
