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!
During 2003-2013 (In England) 13,972 deaths were identified as suicides. This approximately, on average, 1270 suicides per year.
We asked some students at The Abbey School about their personal views on this topic.
Many people suffer from depression and it is a rising problem in with there being more support and medication to stop and prevent depression/anxiety.
So with a conscious effort being made to increase the awareness about this issue, and the continuation of people working together to create more support systems, let’s hope that it becomes less and less of a problem.
