On Wednesday 15th and Thursday 16th March six pupils from Year 6 became journalist for the BBC School Report.  The children have been working on a project based around journalistic writing as part of their lessons.  The pupils researched their own stories which they then produce to camera as a news article.  The next stage was the editing to make the news report ready for broadcast.  The chosen pupils had two very long days, which started at 08:30 with the editorial briefing and the daily plan.  Top of the agenda was the interview with the Chief Minister Fabian Picardo on how Brexit will affect the youth in Gibraltar.

The pupils entered No. 6 Convent Place and no sooner had they all sat down it was straight off to the Minister’s meeting room. The children set up all their lighting, video and sound equipment, Mr Canessa pretended to be the Chief Minister so the pupils could rehearse. Crunch time, the door opened and the Chief Minister welcomed the pupils, time for business!  With some excellent questions asked by the pupils in pairs, you can see all the question on the published video here.

The pupils have had a once in a lifetime experience participating in the BBC School Report.  To see more of the news clips, photos and quotes from the past two days.  This includes the World Trade Centre in Gibraltar, the opening of the new Debenhams store and Interviewing our own Seb who one Young Sports Personality of The Year take a look at our dedicated News Report page.
