The bistek team meet once a week and is made up of students from Year 9 to Year 12. Students gain valuable technical skills from Academy teachers, which can then be used to support events across the school calendar.
The group has produced YouTube live streams for many of the school’s music and drama productions, as well as sports events. These streams are not only broadcast live, but are also stored on the group’s channel so that friends and family can view a performance or sports event at a later date.
Through bistek, students are able to take responsibility for live-streaming the school’s many artistic productions, which not only develops their technical skills, but empowers them to make complex decisions while broadcasting in a live environment.

Live streaming is delivered with industry-level kit, which includes Open Broadcaster Software and 4k high definition video cameras. These skills are not only key to those who may want to work in the media industry, but also give the students the ability to make professional looking videos to evidence their learning across the whole curriculum.
