Year 8 students at Elton have been invited to participate in an exciting Newsround event which is due to be televised on Wednesday November 12th. Our students have used their knowledge of the conflict in Syria to devise questions which have been recorded and sent to the BBC News crews that are positioned at refugee camps in Jordan and Lebanon. These questions cover a wide range of issues about their daily lives, their hopes for the future and their views about the conflict that is going on around them.

Next week the film crew will return to Elton with film footage from the Syrian children. Each question will have been posed to the Syrian children and Elton students will get the opportunity to hear each response. The Newsround film crew then intend to film our students’ responses. All of this exciting footage will be televised on Wednesday November 12th and will also be accessible via the BBC Newsround website.
