Media Workshop

Today a group of P6 pupils were invited to St Mary’s High School, Newry to participate in a Media workshop in collaboration with the BBC News Report and Eco Schools NI.

The P6 group had the opportunity to work with pupils from St Mary’s High School, Newry, St Mark’s High School, Warrenpoint and St Joseph’s High School, Newry in two workshops.

Workshop one introduced the pupils to report writing and journalism before moving onto the excitement of creating and editing their own News report for the Eco Schools programme. BBC reporter John was very impressed with their reporting skills and final editing of their News Reports! A very entertaining showcase of News Reports from our pupils!

Thank you to Miss Olivia McCann, Past Pupil of St Mary’s PS, who invited us today as part of the Eco Ambassador School Programme for a very enjoyable and well organised day.
