BSB creates a first with the BBC School Report

05 November 2013

BBC School report is coming to The British School of Beijing, Shunyi!

From our organiser of BBC School Report at BSB Ms Laure Cundall 

The BBC are kindly allowing us to be the pilot school for international schools this year and therefore we will have the great privilege of being the only school outside the UK to take part. 

This is a fantastic opportunity aimed at pupils from 11 to 16 to teach them more about journalism and what it entails.  Pupils will work as a team to recreate a news room within the school and tell their news their way.  They will learn how to recognise what constitutes news, how to research, film, record, edit, write, present and broadcast it.  They will be working to deadlines (like a real news room) and have to make decisions on running orders and how much time to allocate to each story.  Students will be taught how to ask the right questions and how to conduct an interview professionally.

All pupils’ hard work will be showcased on a dedicated news page (coming soon) on the BSB website throughout the year.  However, the end goal will come on the 27th March 2014 where participating students will be off timetable and have to work to a 2pm deadline, time at which BBC School Report news goes live in the UK on a dedicated radio and TV channel, with some participating schools being lucky enough to have some of their reports aired on the BBC!  Thousands of schools have already signed up across the UK, but we are the first and only international school to take part in our own right.

We are extremely lucky to have a fantastic staff at BSB, including some experienced journalists who will bring in invaluable wealth of knowledge. 

Needless to say that this is a fantastic opportunity for all students to get involved and try something new, to be part of a team and become a BBC School Reporter.  We need all types of personalities to take part and there is definitely a job for everyone, be it in the limelight or behind the scenes.  For further information on the project, you can look it up on the BBC website.

Come find out what it’s all about on Thursdays in room 216 at 3.45: you won’t regret it!
