BBC School Report

CHSG students took part in the national programme of BBC School Report on 16th March 2017. Students have worked incredibly hard and produced an excellent set of stories. 











What is BBC School Report?

BBC News School Report is an opportunity for students (11-16) to become real-life reporters and take part in the BBC School News Report on 10th March 2016.

Here at Carshalton High for Girls we are once again participating in this fantastic opportunity.  Using lesson plans and materials from the BBC School News website and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.

In March, schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.  

BBC News presenter and former teacher, Huw Edwards, is working on School Report.

He said: "Over the years I've run many journalism workshops in schools. So I've seen how much fun it can be and how much can be learnt when there are real deadlines, real audiences and real standards to meet.

I'm involved because I want to give young people the chance to make the news themselves, and I want to share the principles of good journalism.

So have a go, let me know what you think, and good luck!"

Reporters are always on the lookout for stories so any potential leads from students, parents and teachers would be appreciated.
