BUDDING journalists at Haverigg School produced their own newspaper with the help of the Satro bus in 1994.
The mobile technology unit visited schools and gave them up-to-date technology and professional advice.
While it was at Haverigg School, year four produced a newspaper as news flowed into the bus by satellite.
The children had to decide what news was the most important as it changed constantly while they were writing it.
They had such a good time they decided to have a go at doing their own newspaper, the Haverigg Mail, based on events at the school.
Inside there were jokes, sport and a piece about the churchyard at Millom, as well as a property ad showing a house for sale.
The Satro bus was also used by year six for a weather information day. A satellite dish was set up in the school grounds and linked pictures to the classroom via the computer.
The children were able to identify weather changes and differences throughout the day from all over the world.
In 1997 Haverigg School was linked up with a school in Penrith via modern technology.
The pupils were the first in the area to use the video conference facilities at Millom Library.
They told the Penrith pupils about their school and village and showed each other pictures through a personal computer with a video camera and a link-up by telephone.
Janice Brockbank, head teacher at Haverigg School, said: “The children were a little bit nervous as first but they soon relaxed and really enjoyed it. It was an excellent opportunity for them.
“They even contacted a number in Norway which was a test line where a camera is set up looking out on to a road.
“We could just see traffic moving and it was great that they could see what was going on in a different country.”
The event was set up by the Cumbria County Council Genesis project, which aimed to demonstrate some of the facilities which are available using new technology.
