Twice a week students at a Sha Tin secondary school take over morning assemblies with their own live-action channel TV Campus, which broadcasts a 30-minute daily news magazine about forthcoming events from a purpose-built studio at the school. 'The students take turns as anchors and the shows are screened live,' said Lee Wing-fai, an art and English teacher at Buddhist Wong Wan Tin College, Sha Tin. 'Students from Form One to Form Four take turns as presenters, script writers, camera operators and general technical crew.'' Lee created the show with fellow art teacher Lai Chi-ming as a way to motivate students and encourage group work, he said. Recent shows included a series of 13 short films, a mixture of documentaries and dramas, devised as part of the school's anti-drug education campaign. Programmes are broadcast in Cantonese although there is scope to include items in English and some teachers are beginning to incorporate broadcasts into lessons. 'I've gained a lot of self-confidence and learnt how to work in a team,' said Chan Wai-ying, 13, who has presented the programme and would like to work as a newspaper reporter in the future. 'It's not as easy as it looks.' The school used the $780,000 grant from the Quality Education Fund in September 2001 to train students in the use of equipment and to build the TV studio which is located in the art department. At today's professional sharing session, Lee will screen examples of the students' work and advise interested teachers how to set up a similar TV project.
