On Friday 13 March, a group of Year 9 girls are taking part in the annual BBC Young Reporter day. As always, the day is set to be a great success!
The BBC runs this event annually to encourage more teenagers to get involved in the news and television industry. It is a UK-wide scheme aimed at students aged 11-18. The reports are accessible to people worldwide.
To take part in BBC Young Reporter, Abbot’s Hill pupils had to submit a letter of application to Mrs Ahmad, Head of Media Studies, outlining their preferred role on the team and explaining why they would be a suitable candidate for their chosen position. The roles included presenters, reporters, journalists, camera-women, sub-editors and an overall editor.
All of the girls are working together to create a series of articles and news reports throughout the day, which can be seen below:
