Loddon students become journalists for a day
Students from Loddon got the chance to get a taste of working in the media by taking part in a newspaper day event.
Hosted by Langley School at Langley Park, the students found out what it was like to work as a journalist dealing with breaking news, an editor putting the paper together and even a sales representative securing advertising.
English teacher Jenny Corser, co-ordinated the event and said: 'The day was a great success and all of our Year 9's had a really enjoyable day.
'I think after the day's work they understood how much work goes into planning a paper and it gave them the opportunity to apply skills that they have learnt through the year in different subjects.
'Journalism is in the news for all the wrong reasons at the moment, but I think this exercise showed our students how hard journalists work and how important their role is.'
