Serving the Community / Media Days

Hi all,

Been asked to help out a school who are running ICU (collapsed timetable) days for their Year 9s. There are 4 days - Challenge, Service, Activity and Skills (pinched from the DofE methinks!)

We've been asked to run two of the days (service and challenge) and have come up with an idea for the young people, in teams, to complete some form of community service on one day and to report on others' progress on another day using video cameras and editing equipment to come up with a presentation / news report, and producing a form of newspaper describing the day's events.

There is nothing new under the sun, and to avoid re-inventing the wheel and mixing any more metaphors, I was wondering if anyone had run days similar to either the community day or the media one, or knew of resources that might help in this.

Thanks, you stars!
