De La Salle Revesby's own TV network

 

 

 

Budding journalists, cameramen and film-makers are thriving thanks to the online DNNN news network at De La Salle College Revesby.

The college's Student Representative Council launched the network earlier this year to showcase sports, music, art and academic pursuits at the Sydney all boys school.

And after six episodes, it is proving to be an incredibly popular initiative, with thousands of online page views on You Tube and moves to integrate it into multimedia studies for Year 9 students.

The teacher who coordinates DNNN, Jacob Andrews says the network has helped to promote the students' public speaking skills and brought the school's communications into the digital age.

"It's essentially a student run news that is run for and by the students", Mr Andrews explains.

"Students have moved beyond picking up a paper newsletter that's old and outdated or reading a sports report without actually seeing the action on the field as well. So this was a great way of ensuring that the students are fully immersed in what is taking place at the school".

Through the network, students get the chance to act as news or sports anchors and film important events in the life of the college.

The DNNN episodes are then played at school assemblies and uploaded onto You Tube, allowing parents to enjoy them as well.

Mr Andrews says the network has also led growing numbers of students to express an interest in a film-making or media career.
