In preparation for our BBC School Report from Fowey Community College coming up on 21st March, our team of newshounds, editors, technicians, producers and presenters took a trip to the BBC in Plymouth.
Ms Rushbury, the team’s mentor, said: “The trip was a great success. We watched the news being rehearsed and then the live broadcast, explored BBC Radio Devon and interviewed some important people.”
Lauren in Year 7 had the opportunity to interview BBC Spotlight presenter Justin Leigh at his news desk. This is all good preparation for Thursday 21st March when the team will be joined by the BBC’s regional coordinator, Luq, for the day to produce a report in a single day along with schools from all over the country.
We have been working with Naomi, BBC Radio Cornwall’s newsreader, in advance of the broadcast, and our report will also feature on BBC Radio Cornwall morning news on 21st March. Well done to everyone for showing commitment and teamwork throughout these extra-curricular classes. We would also like to thank Luq and Naomi for the time and effort they have put into helping our team to develop their content.
