Guildford County Goes Live

As part of BBC School Report Newsday, Elodie, Cameron and Shahaab were interviewed by BBC Surrey about the project. Shahaab and Mrs Gibbs went live on the Breakfast Show, talking about why School Report is so important to young people. Shahaab said, “it gives us an insight into how stressful it is to be a journalist”. Despite this, he also said that he was considering a career in journalism.

Next up were Cameron and Elodie who pre-recorded an interview for the evening show. They discussed their opinions on BBC School Report and explained the concept of it in more detail.  They both enjoyed the experience at the local radio station. Elodie said, “It was really interesting to see how everything worked in the studio with the recording equipment and the timings between one interview and the next”. Cameron said, “Everyone at the studio was very welcoming and made us feel comfortable even though we were nervous to speak live”.

Soon after finishing their morning of interviews, the County students headed back to school to write up their reports. Who knows, maybe School Report will be the start of exciting careers for them.
