Olympic torch relay: Day 22
- 9 June 2012
- From the section Student reports
After last night's evening celebration in Glasgow, the torch will make its way further north towards Inverness and School Reporters will be telling the tale of its journey around the UK once again.
School Reporters from Our Lady and St Patrick's High School have been working with the Blue Peter team to produce a special film about the torch's travels.
The reporting team, with Louise as presenter, told the story of where the torch has been over the last week - including its trip to Dublin - and then revealed some of Dunbarton's "top spots".
And other schools along the route have also been reporting on the relay and the preparations for London 2012.
School Report on Blue Peter
The Blue Peter team are in Dumbarton today for the latest Big Olympic Tour event, with Team GB Olympic gold medal hopeful Phillips Idowu giving presenters Helen Skelton and Barney Harwood a masterclass in the triple jump!
The show was broadcast live from Levengrove Park at 09:00BST.
Reporters from Our Lady and St Patrick's High School have been working with Blue Peter this week to produce a short film about where the torch has been - and to tell people all about Dumbarton and what it has to offer.
The girls involved - Abby, Sammy, Alison, Louise and Laura - said: "It was a great experience, we learned a lot about professional recording for television.
"It was good to meet the presenters and be involved in the rehearsal, seeing all that went on in the background. It is amazing to see how much effort is put into each show and how hard Barney, Helen and the crew work."
You can see the film on the School Report website at the top of the page!
Explaining the Olympic Torch
Maliha and Kayleigh from Craigholme School in Glasgow wrote a report about the Olympic torch and explained some of the factors the designers thought about when they created it.
And Jamie and Morven from Killermont Primary School have been looking at the flame's journey through Scotland and the rest of the UK.
Eyes on Team GB
The Olympics were on the minds of Anna and Cameron from Jordanhill School in Glasgow. The pair hosted a special Olympic slot in their school's News Day bulletin. They discuss which athletes are the favourite to lead Team GB to success as well as the qualifying stages for the sporting events which have taken place so far.
The whole reporting team found out what it was like to make the news for the real and Cameron said he felt like a "real reporter".
"When I came to the filming I was really nervous but I overcame my nerves and did the challenge. I really enjoyed myself and I would tell everyone I know that it's an amazing experience and you should do it," he said.
