Lily talks to Riogan about playing for the Girls’ Football team at Cardinal Newman.
Toby and Jude in Year 9 interviewed Holocaust survivor, Professor Ladislaus Löb, after his talk at the school.
On Saturday 18th February, four members of the Cardinal Newman School Report team (Aurora, Jude, Lily and Emma) visited BBC New Broadcasting House in London to take part in two workshops with students from other schools, youth ambassadors and representatives from mental health charities.
In the morning the students contributed to an “audience insight” session for Radio 1, helping to ensure that the concerns and interests of young people around the subject of mental health and wellbeing will be taken into account.
After being treated to lunch in the BBC canteen, the budding journalists took part in a discussion about topics such as the language we use to talk about mental health, what schools can do and what young people would like to see covered in the media in this area. They were very gratified to see the BBC School Report team collating their input for use in the planning of News Day, the 16th March, when School Report teams around the country will be reporting on issues affecting their communities. The Cardinal Newman team will be off timetable all that day, working in the Library to put out a range of news stories by the broadcast deadline of 2pm.
The day ended with a tour of the Radio 1 studios. Apart from seeing where some of their music idols hang out before “Live Lounge” sessions, the students also got a glimpse of the Newsbeat studio, where radio journalists broadcast several times a day.
The students were inspired by the content of the day as well as having a really good time!
