The Newsroom

Skills for learning, life and the world of work

Get set to create your own broadcast news segment!

Live from the classroom, students step into the roles of news researchers and reporters, diving into exciting breaking news topics (that can also be tailored towards your inquiry topic or focus). Picture the buzz and excitement of a real newsroom!

Can your news crews race against time and deliver a news story that'll have everyone on the edge of their seats?

Introducing The Newsroom – a thrilling project-based learning journey that transforms students into dynamic teams of storytellers, boosting teamwork, critical thinking, problem-solving, creativity, communication, digital literacy, and presentation skills.

We had such a good time on Tuesday. The kids and teachers loved it. Your team was fantastic. We loved their energy. We will definitely be booking this program again.
