About a week ago, our BBC School News Reporters submitted a video of questions they would like to ask MPs about the changes in education to the BBC. Out of the hundreds of entries, our school was one of three chosen to take two students to the Houses of Parliament to interview David Laws, Minister of State for Schools! Sarika Unadkat, Broadcast Assistant, said that our video was the most impressive of all the videos sent in!

So, on Sunday 23 March, Mrs Venables will be taking the students up to London, where they will stay in a hotel overnight. On Monday 24 March, they will travel to the Houses of Parliament where they will meet with the BBC reporters, work with speakers to prepare for their interview, have a tour of the Houses of Parliament, and then interview David Laws before returning back to Cornwall. This is a once in a lifetime trip for these hard-working students! After all, how many students get the opportunity to interview the Minister of State for Schools about the changes in education or get to work with various speakers on interview techniques? We are expecting the interviews to appear on the BBC News, either that evening, or the next day. A most exciting trip!
