On Tuesday 16th May, a large group of Year 8 students took part in an enterprise activity led by the Royal Television Society. They were placed into teams and were first introduced to the wealth of career opportunities that television has to offer. Make-up artists to sound engineers, writers to stunt technicians, students were amazed at the breadth of jobs on offer.
In their teams, students had to design, market and pitch an idea for a new television programme. They had to consider their demographic audience, time slots, presenters, graphics, locations and costs, the list went on. They had to put together a three-minute presentation, which they delivered to the whole group at the end. Every student got involved in the development of the ideas and took on a key role in the team effort and every student stood up at the end to support the final presentation.
Very well done to Kallan Hampton, Eve Hayden-Wright, Leah Hickman, Ciaran Pyre, Conor Ribeiro and Victoria Staples who were the overall winners of the day and will go on to represent King Charles I School at the RTS finals on Thursday 29th June.
