Our pupils will be reporting on the forthcoming news on this page.


Loreto Convent will be using video with a virtual backdrop to create newscasts. A newscast demonstrates pupil’s learning in an effective and engaging way. The pupils will be videoed in front of the green screen in which they can choose their own background. The children will be filming on-location where possible, however the green screen will be used to create that authentic on-location look. All year 6 pupils will have completed a Journalism and Media Studies topic where they will have used, learnt and understood the 5 elements before potentially being invited to shoot this BBC School Report:

  • research
  • script
  • images to incorporate in broadcast
  • green screen editing
  • movie editing.

Pupils can be seen below testing the green screen technology in their newly designed production studio. Loreto is the only school in Gibraltar and one of three schools in Europe reporting. Take a look at the map for more information.
