Deadline looms for college newspaper

Wannabe journalists at Coombeshead College in Newton Abbot are nearing the deadline of a new newspaper.

Students taking part in a newly launched after-school newspaper club will be producing the new publication later this term, and 5,000 free copies will be distributed in Newton Abbot.

The initiative has received a £900 grant from the Coombeshead College Association, which will help 20 Year 11 pupils gain experience in finding news stories, writing features and designing pages.

Torquay Herald Express reporter Sue White runs the club. She said: “It’s a really exciting experience for the students.”

Two editions of the paper will be produced each term.
