Manor Croft Academy Student News Team Report

4th March 2015

Here at Manor Croft Academy we have recently established a News Team, made up of Year 7 and 8 students. Our aim is to participate in the BBC Schools New Report this year on Thursday 19th March.

Our club runs every Tuesday during lunchtime in the library. At the present time we are developing are skills in preparation, learning how to select newsworthy items, conduct interviews as well as editing and publish news reports.

A recent broadcast entitled ‘RAP with Grant’ which gave students at our Academy an overview of the Raising Aspirations Programme organised by Mr G Saker, SPTA Careers Co-ordinator. The programme invites speakers to deliver a short presentation on their career history and offer specific tips and advice to students regarding employability, apprenticeships and higher education.

The News Team hopes to put out regular broadcasts in form time in the near future.
