From me to Huw
Cameron, a student at St Peter's High School in Gloucester, had the opportunity to interview BBC newsreader Huw Edwards about his schools involvment in School Report 2009. He tells us about it here...
What was Huw Edwards like?
"He was really nice. He made it seem like it was fine and I don't have to be nervous."
What did he talk about?
"He gave me advice on how to get a good story and explained how he got involved in the news reading business. He told me to try and find as much evidence as you can and talk to people!
"He also talked about School Report - he wants young people to be the ones to be able to create the news...and how they should be writing the stories for the news because he thinks it's vital that they should learn these skills at a young age."
What have you been working on?
"We were set into pairs and we've all done different stories. One group did the rugby, because our school have got into the final (Daily Mail Under-18's Cup at Twickenham).
"Another group did the OFSTED report that we've just had.
"In my group we did the 'Study Period' and we're trying to explain why some people like it and some don't. We've interviewed teachers and the main coordinators of it.
"The Study Period happens every morning from 9am to 9.30am and we develop skills. We use group skills and individual skills and we're studying resilience at the moment."
So what's happening today?
"At the moment we're putting everything we've done over the past few days into one big news bulletin. It's the deadline today so we're putting it all together."
