SEP Students Making the News with Thomas Niblock6.6.2011
BBC Sports Journalist, Thomas Niblock, recently visited St. Mary’s Grammar School as part of the Sharing Education Programme. Thomas, a former pupil of St Pius X College and St. Mary’s Grammar School, worked with Year 13 students from across the Magherafelt Learning Partnership who are studying Journalism as their Curriculum Enrichment option.
Students had the opportunity to gain an insight into what is involved in putting together a television news broadcast, both in front of and behind the camera. By the end of their time with Thomas, students had produced a DVD of their very own unique news programme - SEP News. Given the enthusiasm and talent exhibited by students as they worked together to produce the DVD, the Magherafelt Learning Partnership may hold the successor for Donna Treanor or Noel Thompson! Pictured is Thomas Niblock with SEP Journalism students from each of the five post-primary schools in Magherafelt.
