Our School Magazine
This affords our TY students the opportunity to produce and sell a school magazine.
In their classes the students discuss their vision for the school magazine and agree what topics would be most appealing to teenagers.
They learn how to research topics and the craft of writing using a variety of styles. They enjoy taking on different roles within the overall Editorial team. With their teacher they develop a business plan and set about organising all the steps involved in getting their magazine printed, promoted and sold (hopefully with a profit!).
Students enjoy the challenge and the personal achievement of creating and marketing their own magazine. This offers a great diversity of experiences for the students and develops some life-long skills such as planning skills, team-work skills, how to work to deadlines, creative thinking, and much more.
