All in a [school] day's work
I'm off to school to work with a dozen pupils from Mold Alun who are taking part in the annual BBC News School Report project where they'll decide what the important stories are - and they'll write them, film them and add them to their own website for the world to see.
Now multiply that by more than 500 UK schools which are taking part today and you can see it's a great way to give a voice to young people and shrug off [at least for a day] any negative stereotypes. [What is School Report?]
Among the stories being tackled at Mold Alun are 'British jobs for British people', global warming and fairtrade. I'll keep you posted.
UPDATE [14:51] Click on the school website's Community Zone and follow the log-in advice to read the reports and see the films made by the pupils earlier today.
They were an enthusiastic bunch - not at all phased by doing their reports in front of camera - led by teachers Cindy Benson [geography] and John Upton [I.T] and they used limited resources - and time - to pull together their stories.
The process included story ideas and research, writing scripts and stories, filming, interviewing and then editing those films prior to uploading them onto their site.
Well done to everyone involved - a great first effort.
