Best Breaking News Broadcast (winner)

Charlotte Haugh - Waitaki Valley School, Year 1

We recently had the perfect opportunity to work on our broadcasting skills and presentations. This was an impromptu exercise the with no time for planning, a lot of quick thinking required.... and just a little bit of teacher support! Five year old Charlotte is a likely journalist in the making! Given the topic of "Cyclone Gita", Charlotte put her hand up wanting a turn and this is what came out..... the content and oral language is outstanding!
