We did it! This year looks a little more slick as we were able to use Aaron and his green screen expertise as well as our new Macs.
This year, we had more journalists wanting to take part than ever! There was a full class of year nines, a few returning year tens and some excellent support provided by the mentors in years 11 and 12.
We had out first ever anchors in the form of Kathy- Ann and Kris and Brogan did a great job on the weather- we may try for slightly more detail next year, but I'm sure any local surfers appreciated the tips.
As you can see we have had a really eventful year at St Louis with our MacLarnon cup team who did us proud this year and brought the whole school together with their skill, talent and ability, the Grease musical in October and we even had a radio broadcast from the school grounds- you can read all about it and watch the video thanks to Laura and Ellen.
This was our fourth School News Day and it was a much bigger success than last year due to the new Mac suite and so many enthusiastic participants. We now have more video footage and a lot more editors willing to pitch in.
