What is School Report?
This project is new to The John Fisher School and is organised through a club managed by the English department. Please let us know what you think or submit any story ideas or information that you would like to see posted on our site by e-mailing comments to firstname.lastname@example.org
BBC News School Report gives 11-16 year-old students in the UK the chance to make their own news reports for a real audience. Using lesson plans and materials from this website, and with support from BBC staff and partners, teachers help students develop their journalistic skills to become School Reporters.
In March, over 1000 schools take part in an annual News Day, simultaneously creating video, audio and text-based news reports, and publishing them on a school website, to which the BBC aims to link.
The next News Day is Thursday 21 March 2013.

JOHN FISHER BOYS REPORT AT THE LONDON GRAND PRIX.
On Friday evening three Year 9 John Fisher pupils (Montel Maruziva, David Olajiga and Tom Pereira) reported for the BBC News School Report website at the Diamond League: London Grand Prix from Crystal Palace. Organized by Mr Lawrence as part of the BBC School Report project, the boys, after collecting their official accreditation, had some important tips from Tom Fordyce, the BBC Sport website's chief sportswriter before interviewing former GB Olympic Hurdler and BBC Commentator Colin Jackson.
The boys not only watched some of the worlds' greatest athletes compete in the evening's events but were allowed to join other top sports journalists in interviewing key participants, including Dwaine Chambers, Dai Greene and Mo Farah, immediately after competing.
In addition, the three boys did a special report on John Fisher Old Boy and 400m star Martyn Rooney who will be going for gold for Great Britain at the Olympics.The three boys interviewed Mr Davies, who told them about Martyn's abilities as a schoolboy athlete.
