Working together as one team, 13 students from across Years 7 to 11 took part in an action-packed day to research, write, record and broadcast a series of news stories. The stories our students told reflected their interests and concerns about school, community and global issues.
The day was a fantastic success. The team managed to work to an incredibly tight deadline to produce seven original news sources. Each story is presented as both an extended piece of writing as well as a video broadcast.
Besides enjoying themselves, our students gained a number of valuable skills. Many teachers have said that taking part in School Report supports all sorts of learning for instance by helping students develop their ability to work in teams, manage their time, conduct independent enquiries, communicate effectively and think critically, while independent evaluations and studies have also backed the project.
