London school has 2012 Olympics role

A London school has been selected by the British and Japanese table tennis teams as their training base for the 2012 Olympics. Morpeth School in Bethnal Green is in the Olympic host borough of Tower Hamlets.

It has been picked because of the new state-of-the-art table tennis centre being built there, which is good news for one of its own students - a hopeful for the Paralympics.

School Reporter Monsur has the story.

School Report is an annual BBC project which helps young people make their own news reports for a real audience.
