Carr Hill High School and Sixth Form Centre has launched its very own student news channel, called CHTV!

After being in development since October, the show has been released and the first episode can be viewed through the website and social media.

What is unique about the student news channel is that the students of the school run it.

The hope is that by having the students run the show, this should appeal to younger viewers.

The show has several roles on offer for students such as filming, presenting and editing.

Myself, I have been working as one of the main presenters of the show.

I have had such a good time working on the show.

Since presenting is something I would like to get involved with more, this is something that I really wanted to do.

Meanwhile, Year 13, Samantha Kilsby is the editor.

She said: “Working for the show has been a new and invigorating experience.

“I have learnt a lot of transferable skills during the process.

“I hope to be a part of the future instalments as being a part of the process is always exciting and different each week.”

The episodes include key sections which are a 30 second news update; challenging the teacher segment; interviews with students and key events being included which have taken place.

The commitment from the students has been amazing and I cannot wait to present more episodes.

This is something I have really enjoyed and I hope that the staff, students and the local community enjoy the content.

We hope that the episodes are informative and fun for all who watch!
