Penneshaw disappears in the distance after a hectic and exciting visit for the FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras who took part in the celebrations in their own way in the historic maiden visit of the cruise liner to their port. Over the coming weeks there will be more in the outcome of the event with the selection of SUPER SHOTS and then the CHOICES to be made by various letter writers. To this point it has been an outstanding project and the second time FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras have focused on a Cunard liner. As well as the KICE FF KWC, it is all important to remember, and add our gratitude to the Master, Captain Peter Philpott and his crew for their cooperation and support of the project; The FOCUS FORCE FLASH OF FRIENDSHIP To The QUEEN VICTORIA.

Thank you to the FOCUS FORCE KWC and families who took part in the FLASH OF FRIENDSHIP to the QUEEN VICTORIA on her farewell from Penneshaw after her maiden on March 4th. Yours will be submitted for the CAPTAIN’S CHOICE. Good luck! 

Esther, thank you for your lovely words. They were appreciated. Phillip JW FOCUS FORCE Kids With Cameras Project coordinator.

About focusfor

The FOCUS FORCE photographic workshop program for Kids With Cameras is based in Melbourne, Australia. The projects have gone beyond the Victorian borders, into New South Wales, and Tasmania.Through others including a backpacker it has been provided to children in Thailand, and a teacher in Portugal has inspired children there as well. Apart, from the fun of learning about the camera and developing the skill of taking better photos; the best of which are raised to the status of SUPER SHOTS,the works have been mounted as collections under the banner of the FOCUS FORCE FRIENDSHIP EXHIBITIONS, and sent as gifts of friendship and goodwill to the United States, Italy, Japan, China - others are still being worked on. The program enrciches the children's knowledge, and as a side benefit makes them more aware of their own surroundings,and all that is to value where they live. Then comes the delight of being achievers, and having their self esteem boosted by their successes.The term "kids with cameras" was first used by the program's forerunner; CLICKER - the "club for kids with cameras", and dates back to the mid 1980's. The name change came about as wanting to be more appropriate to the older student group that the program now works with.
