STUDENTS learned all the skills required to become roving reporters at a media workshop.

Year Eight pupils from Manningtree High School covered news stories and interviewed special guests on Thursday with Tendring council leader Mick Page, author Liz Fisher Frank, indie band Polar Collective, rapper Devlin and darts legend Bobby George all on hand for flash quotes.

Curriculum manager Alan Swift was proud of how the students performed at the BBC School’s Report event.

“We took part in a similar event last year but this year it was bigger and better than before,” he said.
