News reports for the BBC School Report

bbc home page highlighting Melbourne schools make the newsDSNN Reports Featured on BBC Website

BBC School Report has highlighted the work of Deakin School News Network students on their website. The report 'Melbourne Schools Make the News' featured the great reports DSNN students had done so that UK school students could view them as they prepared for their first 'Practice News Day' in November. The UK students will go 'live' with their own school reports on 27 March 2014 and we hope that many of the DSNN schools will be able to do some fresh reports for the event, too.

Congratulations to three schools from the Deakin School News Network who became the first ever schools to take part in the BBC’s School Report ‘News Day’ on 21 March 2013!

This event involves more than 1000 schools and more than 33,000 students across the UK and internationally do online reports linked together through the BBC website:

Deakin School News Network students from Brauer College, Warrnambool, Keysborough Secondary College and North Geelong Secondary College all compiled reports, which can be viewed by clicking on the map below. The schools have all been working really hard in a short space of time to compile their video news reports and get them uploaded and well done to all the students and staff who’ve been involved.

The BBC even did a story about them for their web page:

In addition, Brauer students compiled a radio bulletin of the day’s news from Australia (a big news day!) - and also a greeting to UK students, which were sent and played out in a live radio programme presented by UK school students and hosted by the BBC as part of their ‘News Day’ events:

Keysborough students also submitted audio questions for an online School Report interview with cricket commentator and journalist, Simon Hughes:
