From classroom desk to foreign desk

School Reporters in Peterborough
School Reporters decide on their news agenda

Students from Ormiston Bushfield Academy in Peterborough have set up a multi-media newsroom for School Report News Day, broadcasting on radio and online.

They've got a foreign correspondent's desk, another for Home Affairs, plus Weather and Sports desks.

The Foreign correspondents have interviewed firefighters who've been to Haiti helping with the earthquake relief effort.

They are also fundraising for the victims and their families by washing teachers' cars.
