On 8 March, eight pupils from Plockton High School Gaelic Department, visited the BBC studio in Portree.

They met James MacDonald, one of the leading news presenters for Radio nan Gidheal, the BBC's National Gaelic Radio Station.

They saw him preparing to broadcast the 11 O'Clock news.

They learned a lot about how news reporters find the news, translate it into Gaelic, and what it is like to be in a studio.

They then heard the news being broadcast live on air.

Everyone enjoyed the day very much and it was an amazing opportunity.

One pupil said: "I thought it was extremely interesting. I would love to be a news presenter one day!"

Students are producing a Gaelic news programme which will be broadcast on their school website on 22 March 2007.
