William Brookes students on their media day

For the second year running, William Brookes School took part in the recent BBC News School Report Day.

Students spent a whole day reporting on issues that impact on their lives, and this year they covered topics such as: the school curriculum, relationships with young people from different countries, the modern ‘celebrity culture’, young people in Parliament, careers, and an interview with Tim Thomas, a William Brookes student during the 1950s, who went on a school trip to the Rome Olympics in 1960.

Twenty students attended a reporting and technical skills workshop. Paul Bertrand, Multimedia Manager at the school said: “Last year we were inundated with media attention because of our Olympic Heritage. We had a lot of material for the students to use and we didn’t need to look very far for inspiration. This year the students brought their own ideas to the day.”
