Students from La Mare de Carteret High School will be making the news for real on 21 March 2013 as they take part in BBC News School Report. We aim to publish the news by 1600 GMT on the News Day, so please save this page as a favourite and return to it later. In the meantime, take a look at what our students produced last year.
BBC News School Report is a club where a group of
students come together to research and find out how to make the news.
The group consists of year seven and eight students and we meet every Wednesday after school.
We have been working very hard to produce quality reports.
Once our reports were all completed we got in touch with BBC Guernsey, They were very keen to help us. They came in and gave us a few examples and on the day before the BBC news school report day they came in to record all of our reports and interviews. The next day all of our reports were played out on the radio.
BBC News School Report gives students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience.
On March 15th, schools across the country took part in the annual News Day. La Mare's reports were pre-recorded and then broadcast on BBC Radio Guernsey throughout the day.
In the lead up to News Day the group worked closely with the BBC and it was decided that there would be two main reports. One report on celebrating the successes of La Mare and one report on what the school is doing in order to improve GCSE results this year. We were able to secure exclusive interviews with our new interim headmaster, Mr Cowley, and the new Chief Officer for Education, Jon Buckland, as well as various other people.
The students were given the exciting opportunity to go along to the BBC Guernsey studios each morning during the week leading up to News Day where they read the weather and were interviewed live on air about the project. The students were congratulated on how well behaved and interested they were whilst at the studios.
The club is still meeting each Wednesday after school to hone their reporting skills!
