Jill Dando News Centre

What is the Jill Dando News Centre?

April 2019 marked twenty years since we lost the extraordinary BBC presenter, Jill Dando. Having studied at Worle Community School, Dando is a huge local success story. Students from Ashcombe have taken inspiration from her positive journalistic work and created a legacy in her home town. Every week budding journalists across year 5 and 6 meet at the Jill Dando News Centre in the heart of the school to interview, write, photograph, film and edit the latest ‘hot off the press’ news. Unlike so much of today’s press, the journalists follow one rule: every story must be a positive and inspiring one.

Our current journalists are Jessica H, Ellie H, Elisabeth T, Katie A, Ava M, Jasmine S, Filip G, Jessica F, Niamh, Maisey, Caitlin, Ollie, Haven, Freya, Tia, Amelia and Yuna.
