Schoolboys headed to the Sky TV studios to write, edit and shoot their own news report.
The Year 10 students from Central Foundation Boys School, Cowper Street, Finsbury, made a newscast about staying healthy, based on their physical education classes and using top of the range cameras, green screens and touch screen technology.
They were joined by Emily Thornberry, MP for Islington South and Finsbury, at the Sky Skills Studio event on Wednesday.
Ms Thornberry said: “I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the boys make their own news report. It was not only very well produced, but was informative and very funny.
“I even suggested after we viewed their finished production that Sky should take the views of the interviewed “expert” that to stay healthy, children should “not eat MacDonalds, not eat from chicken shops, exercise more and eat what your mother gives you”, and play it on repeat on Sky News.

“It’s great that the boys had a chance to experience what it’s really like to make television and I’d strongly encourage other schools to take part in the Sky Skills programme.”
