Students in La Salle downed pens and raised microphones for the day as they explored

the world of 24 hour news as part of the BBC School Report team broadcasting on

Thursday 19th March.

The team of pupils from across the school enjoyed the chance to research, script and

film a number of stories which featured on the BBC website. The main feature of the

broadcast was a series of interviews with elite sportsmen who offered their insight

into the making of a champion. Elite Ireland boxing star and past pupil Brendan

Irvine joined the team fresh from another gold medal success in Helsinki.

Brendan shared some tips for aspiring athletes and helped the team explore the

link between academic success and sporting achievement.

Stars from inside the school also contributed to this feature. Ryan Devine,

a UK Gold medalist in trampolining, Domhnall Nugent , a triple award winning

GAA All Star , Patrick Slowey, a Ju Jitsu black belt and Anthony Johnstone , an

Ulster champion boxer, all shared their thoughts on the makings of a winner in

sport and in the classroom.
