Student Journalists

E-mail Print PDF

JournalistsWEBA group of 15 Year 9 students have started a journalist project with Teachfirst and The Student View.  The students have been learning the basics of engaging article writing and journalism.

This project has been an exciting opportunity for the students to write about what they feel passionate about and a chance to improve and show off their English skills. All of the students have written 'listicles' – small articles on a topic of their choice – which have been published on The Student View website.

Five of the students visited the Houses of Parliament on Wednesday 22 November to put their journalistic skills into practise. They sat down with the Labour MP for Lewisham East, Heidi Alexander and interviewed her about a number of issues, including immigration, improvements in the local area and housing for immigrants and the elderly. The students showed great maturity with their questions as well as passion about their community, which was fantastic to see.

The project will run for the rest of the academic year with a number of sessions dedicated to improving and mastering their journalistic skills.  Students will write more challenging and developed articles and will most certainly be well on their way to becoming excellent journalists!

CSC1The Conisborough Sports Crew are a group of committed Year 9 students who are given training to help run Sports events for primary schools across the Borough. This helps to support the national 'School Games' sports strategy.

The Crew are currently being trained to assist in a number of events coming up through the year, the first of which was The Lord's Taverners Boccia competition.  Boccia is a disability sport where players aim to propel balls close to a target ball. Two sides compete as individuals, pairs or as a team of three over a set number of ends. Points are accumulated over the course of a match to find a winner. A ball can be rolled, thrown or kicked. This event was run in conjunction with Panathlon and gives the opportunity for students with moderate to severe learning difficulties to take part in a sporting competition with a pathway to a London wide final.
