NSG SMASH Group


The NSG SMASH Group 2015-2016 made an amazing film about mental health and life growing up in Hull. The film was so amazing it was nominated for a prestigious into film award, which saw the group attend London last Month.

The girls attended the award ceremony at the Leicester Square Odeon Cinema and they were accompanied by Emma Train-Sullivan the SMASH programme Manager, and Miss Collinson from NSG.

The Girls had an amazing time and did themselves and the school proud. The Film did not win the Category, however been nominated in their own right was absolutely outstanding and once in a lifetime achievement. The girls are truly an inspiration to all , their own personal journeys contributed to the development of the film which has inspired other young people to ask for help.
