YOUNGSTERS are looking to enjoy 15 minutes of fame and become television stars.
The BBC’s young children channel CBeebies paid an unexpected visit to Ysgol Maes Edwin, Flint Mountain.
They held auditions at the school to give infant age pupils the chance to appear on television in a game show later this year.
The school has been selected to include four of its infant school pupils in the game show, provisionally entitled Swashbuckle.
After doing their bit to convey to the auditioning panel they had the talents to grace the small screen, children from the school are now waiting to hear if they will be representing the school on TV.
The school is enjoying being selected to appear in the spotlight.
Headteacher John Plunkett said: “We will have four children appearing on the show but the rest of their class will be going along to support them as part of the live TV audience.
“It is an honour for the school to be selected to take part in something like this. The auditions were a successful event.
“As you can imagine, the children have been very excited about it. I think our junior school children are slightly jealous about the infant children being on TV, but this is just for children of infants age only.
“Hopefully, doing this can help put Flint Mountain and our school on the map.”
Filming of the show, which is expected to include other schools as well as Ysgol Maes Edwin, is due to take place at BBC’s new headquarters in Salford Quays.
For the auditions, the children enjoyed getting out of the classroom and being put through their paces to show their exuberant and physical sides.
The tasks included ball games and balancing skills.
“They got to play a variety of games which I think they enjoyed,” added Mr Plunkett.
“They all seemed to enjoy it and have a good time. It is good publicity for the school.
I’m glad we said ‘yes’ when they rang and asked us if we would like to take part.”
