About Kidsnews

kn buttonThursday mornings at 8:45am (at St. Mark’s Primary School) on CH 6


For several years running, St Mark’s has involved its students in contributing to a student news program titled ‘Kidsnews’. Kidsnews is a live, 10 minute TV broadcast that is delivered to more than 450 students, parents and staff each Thursday morning from our multimedia studio. Students work together to write, edit, produce and critique each episode.

Recently, our TV studio and Kidsnews program was featured on Today’s Schools, a program on the community television station, Channel 31. The show was produced by Well Imagine That, who have kindly made the footage from Today’s Schools available on Youtube.

 Does your school have a TV studio? Do your students create their own broadcasts?

    Greetings fellow bloggers,

    You guys did a fantastic job with Kidsnews last year and there’s no doubt this year it will just as good this year, I always love it when you do scratch animation so please try to add some of those in this years episodes. I also like it when you have those big quiz questions but can you please make some of the questions about basketball and football. Overall kids news has been great and I cant wait to see it this year, well that’s all from me bye.

    Hi Bloggers,

    I think the KidsNews show is a great idea for the school to keep up to date with everything that is going on during all the year levels. Sometimes they do interviews with the new teachers which is a good way to get to know the new teachers.

    Bye Bloggers.
