BBC News School Report
Students from this school made the news for real on 16 March 2017 as they took part in BBC News School Report.
BBC School News Report at SHSG was a massive hit with a wide range of students from all years getting involved. Our enthusiastic students along with others across the country worked on individual reports about their school and other national issues. The day was full of energy and school spirit, enabling SHSG pupils to look into the world of journalism. The experience started with deputy head boy and director of our school news report John giving a quick briefing to set the fast-paced tone for the day. Students and teachers were interviewed to show the many different aspects of life at SHSG, and the events that affect us. Miss Brierley and Mrs Symes shared their opinions on the controversial issues over grammar school places. The reporters covered the LGBTQ+ anniversary party along with the massive hit that was Harry Potter Night. Along with this our reporters looked at national news, looking into and researching the stresses on the country’s NHS, along with the Conservative parliamentary outrage and the Scottish referendum. The wide range of clubs and sporting activities at SHSG were also looked into; interviews from head girl Anna and sports captain Megan were featured giving an informative report of roles within the school. Altogether, the day was a great success and extremely productive. A massive thanks goes out to the sixth form media students, John, Sammy, Ella, Chanelle, Yasemin and Joe Ras well as the head of Media Ms Casson and our media technician Ms Arnold for organising the event and a big well done to everyone else who took part. The final outcome can be viewed on the school website and for anyone else who would like to get involved, BBC School News Report will run next year and you can come along to School Report club every Thursday lunchtime in the Media Studio.
