The BBC are running their annual School Report programme, which invites schools from around the United Kingdom to get involved and create their own news bulletins.

All the way through today, using the BBC's resources, school students are being encouraged to get involved with journalism across a wide range of mediums - web, radio, and television - and perform in front of an audience.

Not only is it a great move by the BBC to expand their resources to students, it has shown in recent years to help encourage not only a community spirit, but an encouraging move for those without a career direction.

Students from all over have been contributing news stories which affect them and wider society, from cyber-bullying to eating disorders, and reporting locally to their schools. The news is created by the students and reported by themselves also, reaching hundreds of thousands of people and involving some highly respected names.

A full list of reports collated by the BBC, created by the students, can be found on their dedicated BBC page here.

You can watch live on the BBC News website. For those outside the United Kingdom may have difficulty watching the live television coverage, and those within are reminded to watch with purchase of a TV licence.
