Here is our BBC School Report broadcast for 2012.

We hope you enjoy watching it as much as we did making it.

The broadcast is in three parts.

Today we got some professional help from our mentors at BBC Radio Orkney. The sound quality of  our recording of Ian Harcus at the harbour had too much wind noise on it so we had to ask him to come back the studio and answer our questions again. Thank you BBC Radio Orkney and Mr Harcus!

This time the audio recording was excellent.

We are gathering news for our broadcast on 15th March for BBC School Report. The marine litter team met Mr Ian Harcus at the Kirkwall pier to find out more about the 'Fishing for Litter' project.

BBC Radio Orkney are going to help us with the final audio recording.

We are getting ready for the big day on March 15th. One team of reporters is finding out about Orkney's Olympic hopeful, rower Sean Corrigall and how Orkney will host the Olympic torch from the point of view of a torch bearer.

Another team is gathering information about the build next door to our school. The new pool at The Pickaquoy Centre is making amazing progress and our team are finding out a bit more about how it has been done.

The “S Team” on a Mission to Save Scapa

On Wednesday, 01 February 2012 the “S Team” from Glaitness School, P7 took their first visit to Scapa Beach.  Their aim was to collect rubbish for artwork and to clean the beach, they hope to encourage other classes, schools and adults to help with keeping Orkney beaches and seas clean. They will be making more visits to Scapa and they hope to encourage other schools to do so at their local beaches.
