In September 2016, John the Baptist Community School is launching a very exciting new venture. As part of the Transition Year Programme, in conjunction with the Links Programme, students in Transition Year and First Year will be offered the opportunity to become involved in a School Media team. This team will attend all school events and report on all aspects of school life over the year. They will attend training in many aspects of the media, including blogging, vlogging, digital manipulation, journalism etc. The group will launch and update its own student blog, which will feed into the main school website and the monitors in school.
A competition will be run to name the student blog and indeed the team as a whole. It is hoped that over time, each year will have a base media group that will report on all aspects of school life relevant to that year.
If you are interested in getting involved, contact Ms. Hayes or Mr. Crehan.
