On Wednesday, 6 March 2019 the Workington Academy Radio team participated in BBC Young Reporter.
On news day the students took on the role of journalists and had to research the news of the day, write their scripts and then record the news bulletin live. During the day the students were lucky enough to get a ‘shout out’ on BBC Radio Cumbria. Everyone involved demonstrated the 3 core values of Workington and Cumbria Education Trust displaying respect, responsibility and resilience.
