Early Thursday morning, bus loads of fifth-graders arrived at the Londonderry Cable Access studio for the final step in a months-long project involving children from five different classrooms.
Carballeira has been doing the annual project with local fifth-graders for well over a decade, though it's only the second year she's brought the kids into the local cable station.
Bringing the children into the studio makes for a more complete experience, Carballeira said, since students get the chance to work with advanced equipment and witness the bustle of an actual studio.
Beaulieu has been working closely with the students in recent weeks, explaining what to expect in the television studio on production day and assisting them in pre-recorded interviews conducted with various community members.
On hand to share her wisdom was Londonderry High School television production teacher Karen Robinson, who brought a dozen or so of her upper level students to help out.
Many will study media communications and film in college this fall, Robinson said, with student director Rachel Beaton attending Hofstra University and assistant director Sam Swinarski to attend the New England School of Communications.
