Hello, I'm Ayshah with Friday morning's stories.

0:00:040:00:05

Here's what's going on today.

0:00:050:00:08

Help is arriving for those affected by storm Irma.

0:00:080:00:12

And a very unusual train journey.

0:00:120:00:15

First up, Storm Irma, one of the strongest

0:00:250:00:26

hurricanes ever recorded, is carrying on its path

0:00:260:00:29

across the Caribbean causing huge amounts of damage.

0:00:290:00:32

Overnight, the British Islands of Turks and Caicos have suffered

0:00:320:00:35

from the wind and rain the storm has brought.

0:00:350:00:39

The UK has promised ?32 million in help and, along with France

0:00:390:00:42

and the Netherlands, are sending rescue teams

0:00:420:00:45

and emergency supplies to help the one million people experts think

0:00:450:00:49

have been affected so far.

0:00:490:00:53

Now most of you are back in school and while that

0:00:530:00:56

can be really exciting, it can also be nerve-wracking.

0:00:560:00:59

Most of you will be looking forward to the year but some of you will be

0:00:590:01:03

worrying about other things like bullying.

0:01:030:01:05

We met up with one boy who's experienced both sides of school

0:01:050:01:08

and is feeling positive.

0:01:080:01:13

Hi, my name's Alexander, I'm 11 years old and I enjoy acting,

0:01:130:01:17

playing my music, playing tennis and rugby.

0:01:170:01:21

And playing with my dog.

0:01:210:01:23

I'm really looking forward to going back to school, and I cannot wait.

0:01:230:01:33

Unfortunately a few years ago I was bullied,

0:01:330:01:37

and I was called very rude names, and rumours were being

0:01:370:01:42

spread about me.

0:01:420:01:44

And this made me feel really sad, and it made me feel worried

0:01:440:01:47

about what was going to happen the next day.

0:01:470:01:53

Then I was so fed up with what was happening,

0:01:530:01:55

I decided to enter a competition where I would write

0:01:550:01:59

a letter to the bully, telling them how I felt.

0:01:590:02:03

I won first prize.

0:02:030:02:07

After I wrote the letter, I felt like I'd got something off my chest,

0:02:070:02:13

because I hadn't spoken completely outright about how

0:02:130:02:16

I felt beforehand.

0:02:160:02:19

Now I feel that I've come out a much more confident person,

0:02:190:02:22

Hello, I'm Ayshah with Friday morning's stories.

0:02:220:02:31

And now that I'm an anti-bullying ambassador, I can help people,

0:02:310:02:34

and if someone comes up to me and says they feel someone's

0:02:340:02:37

being mean to them, I'd know how they feel.

0:02:370:02:39

Remember to tell someone you trust about what's going on.

0:02:390:02:44

It really helps that someone else knows.

0:02:440:02:48

Remember that it's not your fault that someone's being mean to you.

0:02:480:02:53

This year I'm looking forward to our school play

0:02:530:02:57

and our school competitions, because they are really crazy

0:02:570:03:03

and they are really fun every year.

0:03:030:03:10

Thanks for sharing your story, Alexander.

0:03:100:03:11

And if bullying is something you are worried about,

0:03:110:03:13

remember to talk to an adult and there's loads of help

0:03:130:03:16

and advice at Newsround online

0:03:160:03:19

It's not just kids in the UK back at school.

0:03:190:03:21

Children around the world are cracking on with their lessons.

0:03:210:03:25

Here's one school in Pakistan that's a little different.

0:03:250:03:30

Meet kids in Karachi in Pakistan getting on with their lessons.

0:03:300:03:35

But this isn't a regular kind of school in the city.

0:03:350:03:39

It's been made right under a flyover and next to some busy roads.

0:03:390:03:44

It might seem basic and noisy to work in, but without it these

0:03:440:03:48

kids wouldn't have anywhere else to go to school.

0:03:480:03:53

That's because, while most kids in the UK are in lessons,

0:03:530:03:56

these children used to have to work and earn money to help

0:03:560:04:00

their families make ends meet.

0:04:000:04:04

TRANSLATION: I used to have to sweep, to mop and dust

0:04:040:04:06

other people's houses.

0:04:060:04:07

My dad died, so my mum said I needed to work.

0:04:070:04:13

TRANSLATION: At first, my mum wouldn't let me come.

0:04:130:04:15

I said I wanted to study, but she said no, I need to work.

0:04:150:04:21

But since I've learned to read and write, my mum is really happy.

0:04:210:04:25

As well as a free education, pupils get a free lunch

0:04:250:04:28

and free school uniform, and they get paid to attend to make

0:04:280:04:31

up for the money they would have earned if they were working instead.

0:04:310:04:37

It's hoped schools like this will allow the poorest of children

0:04:370:04:40

in Pakistan to get an education, and hopefully get better

0:04:400:04:44

jobs when they grow up.

0:04:440:04:50

Time to have a look at a some of the top sports stories today.

0:04:500:04:53

We've seen the last of players like Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain moving

0:04:530:04:56

between Premier League clubs once the season starts.

0:04:560:04:59

Clubs have voted to close next summer's transfer window before

0:04:590:05:02

the season kicks off.

0:05:020:05:05

The window in other countries will stay the same, so players

0:05:050:05:07

could still leave their clubs, after the deadline

0:05:070:05:11

in England closes.

0:05:110:05:13

And in tennis, Venus Williams missed out on her first US Open

0:05:130:05:16

finals for 15 years.

0:05:160:05:18

She lost to Sloane Stephens in New York last night.

0:05:180:05:21

That means there'll be two new faces in the women's final this year.

0:05:210:05:25

Stephens will go up against fellow American Madison Keys.

0:05:250:05:33

Now when you look out of a train you sometimes

0:05:330:05:35

see strange things.

0:05:350:05:36

But not this strange.

0:05:360:05:37

These passengers in Germany were treated to a special show

0:05:370:05:40

of men on ladders saluting, running trees,

0:05:400:05:43

and even a fake shark!

0:05:430:05:46

It's part of a theatre performance that aims to bring city

0:05:460:05:49

and countryside together.

0:05:490:05:52

That's the latest for now.

0:05:520:05:53

Online's the place to go for new updates.

0:05:530:05:55

We're back at 4.20.

0:05:550:05:56

Bye!

0:05:560:05:58
