On Thursday, March 24th 40 pupils from The Glasgow Gaelic School will be joining up with around 800 schools across the UK making the news.

The pupils are taking part in BBC News School Report, a BBC project to engage 11-14-year-olds in the news.

Ex-teacher and BBC News presenter, Huw Edwards, is lending his support to the project.

He says: “I’m involved because I want to give young people the chance to make the news themselves, and I want to share the principles of good journalism.

Over the past few months the students in S1 have been working hard, training to be top journalists, carrying out interviews and producing reports.

“The students have worked really hard and come up with some great stories which they have chosen to report on,” revealed Gaelic teacher L, Nicholson.

On Thursday at 2pm the students will be broadcasting their news, covering the stories of the day as well as their special report on the death of Linda Norgrove, the legend of Cu-Chulainn, the use of slavery by multinationals, the latest computer games, as well as an ‘And Finally’ item The most popular biscuits!
