A weekly newspaper reporter admitted he “had to laugh” after being asked how much he was paid in a Q&A with schoolkids.
Littlehampton Gazette chief reporter Tom Cotterill spoke to pupils at St Mary’s CE Primary School in Climping about his job and what it entails.
Said Tom: “As a journalist a key skill you need is the ability to ask good questions. And the young pupils at St Mary’s did just that. They asked some really great questions that certainly kept me on my toes.
“One cheeky youngster even asked me how much I get paid – which I had to have a giggle about,” he added.
The visit was part of a project by the school to create its own newspaper reports.
