BBC School News Report

The BBC Bus comes to New-Bridge!

There has been a great buzz around the college this week, as we welcomed a team of BBC media crew on site to help students record a radio report on the benefits on integrated education. Miss Gallagher’s year 10 English class have been busy filming a video report on this topic to submit to the BBC School News show. When the BBC heard about the talent of our students and the great progress they were making with the project, they decided it was an opportunity not to be missed – this story would be great for radio too! This week the school welcomed the BBC crew on site and students got the opportunity to learn all about how news is made.

They highlight of the day was getting to record their own report using the official media equipment for radio broadcasts. The topic of integrated education is one that sometimes divides public opinion, so it was important that the students covered the story in a balanced way. The debating society helped with this and explored the pros and cons of integrated education. The BBC crew were so impressed by the capability and confidence exuding from our students; they were even certain that have some future stars in the making! Noel Thompson better watch this space…10R are coming for your job!
