Elphinstone Cougar Crossing student Josh Stanley enjoyed meeting Global TVís Steve Darling during a recent class trip to the Global TV studios in Burnaby.

On Nov. 20, the Elphinstone Secondary School Cougar Crossing students had an opportunity to have a personal tour of the Global TV studios in Burnaby.

The students had a wonderful experience as special guests of Steve Darling of the Global Morning News.

Josh Stanley, a Grade 9 student in the program, previously met Darling in the summer and had the idea for the special adventure. Leading up to the trip, the entire class spent time planning, working on the transportation, logistics of timing, volunteer support and proper safety for a field trip off-Coast.

Once the special day arrived, students, parents and staff were filled with anticipation. The group was taken into the inner sanctums of the studio.

It was fascinating to see the inner workings and everyone got to sit on the famous red couch and see how the newscasters actually sat in a completely green room, where all backgrounds were enhanced digitally. News anchor Sophie Lui also came over to say hi on our tour.

The next morning on TV, Darling talked about the class on the morning news and how much he enjoyed showing the students around. He also showed some of the photos of the trip on the morning show. The students felt like they were true celebrities since they were officially on TV. It was an adventure to remember.
