Year 7 students spent a day off timetable to develop and enhance their ICT skills. Their task was to work in groups to produce a newspaper. Each group nominated one member as their editor who was in charge of the newspaper format and layout and each of the other group members were researchers responsible for producing different sections of the publication.
The budding journalists put together articles on current news items, fashion, cars, film and TV reviews and even a property page. They also designed corporate adverts using their graphic skills.
The newspaper that is judged to be the highest generator of income from their news articles and advertising will be the overall winner.
