Virtual Incursion
News from Home

Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Lights. Camera. Action!

LEARNING FROM HOME! This virtual incursion was created for students working from home during the COVID lockdowns in Victoria.

This unique learning experience is designed to bring students together online as they work collaboratively to create and perform their very own version of the news! Students not only learn how to write a news story, but also have the opportunity to step into the role of a news reporter and film their very own news segment with scripts, props and costumes.

The day is JAM-PACKED with activities and challenges, all delivered online.

During these challenging times, ‘News from Home’ gives students the chance to be creative, think critically and most importantly learn something new while having fun!

Thanks again for running such an excellent program. It was an exceptional day for the kids in a very hard time. We have had lots of positive feedback from parents which can be rare. We have all been recommending the program to our teacher friends so hopefully you get to run some more.
