Scholars Challenge Day

On the 10th May we brought together high attaining year 9 students from Lister and our NCST partner schools, Rokeby and Sarah Bonnell for a Challenge day with a Current Affairs theme. We were very lucky to have guest speakers: Ayshah Tull of ‘Newsround’ fame, now working for Channel 4, and Katie Satchell from ITN productions who worked on ‘Show me what you’re made of’. Students heard about how they had achieved their professional goals and asked them questions about the skills they had developed through school, University and working life. They then had the opportunity to develop their own skills through mock interviews, a networking lunch and a group competition to create a news broadcast. They developed their confidence, team work skills and understanding of current affairs over the course of the day and really impressed us with their effort and attitudes throughout.
