MONMOUTH Assembly Member Nick Ramsay was delighted that pupils from three local schools were among the 59 schools across Wales taking part in the BBC News School Report News Day.
Broadcast last Thursday, pupils from King Henry VIII Comprehensive School, Monmouth Comprehensive School and Chepstow Comprehensive School, were given the opportunity to create news bulletins about stories which were important to them.
Speaking after the event, Mr Ramsay said:
“The BBC School Report is now in its ninth year and has become very popular with pupils and viewers alike .It’s great to see young people being given the chance to develop their journalistic skills – I’m sure they all had great fun putting together their news stories.”
All bulletins are available to see on the schools’ websites.
