News day for bud­ding jour­nal­ists

Macclesfield Express - - SCHOOLS NEWS - RHI­AN­NON MCDOWALL

ALL Hal­lows li­brary was trans­formed into a buzzing news­room, as a group of bud­ding jour­nal­ists from year nine set about re­port­ing the All Hal­lows news for BBC School Re­port.

There were five groups of stu­dents who all chose a dif­fer­ent fo­cus for their sto­ries.

Th­ese were World Book Day, a day in the life of All Hal­lows, the col­lege farm, the trip to Italy and cur­rent world events.

The day re­quired stu­dents to work co-op­er­a­tively, to a tight dead­line, in teams and man­age the tech­nol­ogy to script, film and edit their seg­ments.

Mrs Wil­liams, as­sis­tant prin­ci­pal, said the day was a com­plete suc­cess.

She said: ‘This is the first time I have run the event and I was so im­pressed with the stu­dents’ col­lab­o­ra­tion and pro­fes­sion­al­ism in pro­duc­ing the fi­nal re­ports.

“They should be very proud of what they have achieved.”

All the sto­ries are avail­able to view on the school web­site at all­hal­lows. org. uk/ stu­dents/ bbc-school-re­port-2016.
