The BBC School Report is Launched at Meole Brace School
The BBC School Report has been set up and developed by the BBC to provide an insight into the world of media reporting and broadcasting to students aged 11 – 19 all over the UK. As with all TV and radio broadcasting the BBC have divided the participating schools into regions each with its own team of mentors who work within the industry.
Meole Brace School are pleased to be part of this initiative and have opened the BBC School Reporters Club to budding reporters, broadcasters and media specialists within year groups 9, 10 and 11. This is to provide valuable work experience within this popular but inaccessible industry.
The club meets regularly at lunchtimes and there are plans to expand this into evening sessions very soon.
The students will be divided into teams with each team given a story to report on. Each team will be made up of 2 roving reporters, a camera person and a movie editor. In addition 2 students will act as anchors to present the whole report.
Each broadcast will consist of 1 national and 2 local news stories, sports news and a local/national weather report.
Members of the BBC Schools Report team can be recognised by the official badge. So watch out! They are keen to find stories.
If you have an interesting story that you think would be suitable for broadcasting, a charity event, a sports event or something important that is happening in our neighbourhood or you are student who is interested in taking part then get in touch by emailing myself initially at the news office on firstname.lastname@example.org
