Students in years 8 and 9 at The Abbey School, Faversham are gearing up for their BBC School News Report day on the 15th March 2018.
Throughout the day, the students will be transforming from ‘normal’ school students to fully fledged BBC School Reporters, which means that they have an ‘access all areas pass’ to help them cover the variety of stories that they have been carefully researching. The stories include key issues that the students feel passionate about, like the pressures of social media on young people and the positives to being involved in sport.
All of this hard work is being supported by English teachers Miss Bishop and Miss Le-Brunn, who are using their English, Media and Drama expertise to teach interviewing and research skills.
We look forward to BBC News Report day!
On Tuesday 30th Jan Abbey schools U13 and U 15 girls represented the school at the Kent school games rugby festival in Folkestone. It was a very cold, windy afternoon. The girls showed exceptional rugby skills, and commitment to team work, scoring many tries.
Both teams won their age groups tournaments, and became the winners of the Kent school games rugby festival. The RFU coaches organised a superb afternoon, with coaching in between games. A great triumph by our Abbey school girls rugby teams.
