Gospel High School is ready to showcase its production titled ‘Torn’ at this month’s Kula Film Awards.

Year 12 student and co-producer of the film, John Pettitt, said the production was based on the message of sexism in schools today.

“We came about the idea because we basically see it in our school and in our everyday lives,” he said.

The location is set in the school and based on a boy who takes Home Economics as a subject. He is being bullied for not taking other subjects that many male students take up, like technical drawing.

“The message is focused about not judging someone by what they do and usually we see girls going through sexism, but we took it from a boy’s perspective in this film,” he said.

About 30 students from the school are part of the eight-minute production and the school is expecting to scoop  awards during the grand event at the end of this month.

Gospel High School is among 32 secondary schools that will be part of the event scheduled from July 28 to 29 (Friday-Saturday).

More than a thousand students are expected to be involved.
