There was a great buzz at New Bridge Integrated College recently when the school welcomed a team of BBC media crew on site to help students record a radio report on the benefits on integrated education.
Miss Gallagher’s year 10 English class have been busy filming a video report on this topic to submit to the BBC School News show.
A spokesperson for the school explained: “When the BBC heard about the talent of our students and the great progress they were making with the project, they decided it was an opportunity not to be missed – this story would be great for radio too.
“The school welcomed the BBC crew on site and students got the opportunity to learn all about how news is made.
“The highlight of the day was getting to record their own report using the official media equipment for radio broadcasts.
“The topic of integrated education is one that sometimes divides public opinion, so it was important that the students covered the story in a balanced way.
“The debating society helped with this and explored the pros and cons of integrated education.”
