BBC News School Report Day took place on Thursday, 26 March, 2009. Jess and Jack were named news anchors for the day at Lynn Grove High School in Gorleston.
Students at the school were prepared for a long day ahead, but they were helped along the way by Mr Ashir Abbas, head of media, and BBC Radio Norfolk's Anne-Marie Parnell.
Tony Wright MP for Great Yarmouth dropped in on Lynn Grove High School to see what the students were up to. They interviewed him on a range of matters, including the state of the 'Acle straight' road.
Time was ticking away and with only a few moments to prepare, Jess and Jack took their seats ready for their 2pm broadcast. Would nerves get the better of them?
The broadcast finished with great success and it was now up to the editors to piece it all together for a 25 minute programme, which would be shown on the school's website.
At the Charles Burrell Humanities School in Thetford, students were also working very hard getting to grips with reporting for TV, radio and in this case, looking at how work is displayed on BBC websites.
To record their footage, the pupils, being aided by BBC Look East's Sally Beadle, used mini DV cameras, where they could also scan through and preview the material they had recorded on screen.
Getting to grips with the bulletin - the groups reported on local, national and international news as well as sport, and the links from the news to the sports reporters were being tested for effectiveness.
Two o'clock struck and School Report started with the latest news bulletins, where the anchors reported on issues such as internet safety and their limited options for education.
"Left a bit" - After the news came the sport, and final adjustments were being made for a successful handover to the sport's team, who reported from their school's training field.
