BBC News School Report

On Thursday 16th March, all members of Saint Aidan’s Media Club took part in BBC News School Report Day- a whole day filled with filming, editing and laughter. We took a break from the traditional format of numerous stories and focussed solely on one topic - mental health.

 Welcome to Saint Aidan's BBC News School Report page. Saint Aidan's have been part of BBC News School Report since 2008 and 2015 is our eighth year. Being part of School Report gives our students chance to improve their skills in communication, presentation and team building, as well as giving them the opportunity to work with media professionals, making reports for the BBC.

Students will be making the news for real on 10 March 2016 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.

BBC News School Report 2014 Live News Day - Thursday 27th March

Today has been very stressful in IT1. The day started with all the members from Media Club coming down to IT1 at 8:40 and reading through all of the day’s newspapers to find stories worth reporting on. Once everyone had found a story that they wanted to write about, everybody started researching and writing up a story about their chosen subject. Some of the stories chosen consisted of: women’s rights and a pen that stops you making mistakes. After a frantic day of researching, recording and editing, here is our report; we hope that you enjoy it.
