In collaboration with Rob Tomlinson, Sue and her Class of 2018 students worked incredibly hard to produce posters to illustrate Rob's brief on 'Below Ten Thousand', for which we are incredibly grateful and by which we are incredibly impressed.

Graham's students filmed and edited Rob's exceptional video which is now hosted on the ELHT's Youtube channel
