Pupils are first with news
NEWSHOUNDS at Canada Hill Primary School have been busy putting their own paper together.
Children at the East Ogwell school have created their own newspaper, called The Moosepaper, so they can be the first with the news.
The Moosepaper is published every three to four weeks and is packed with stories, puzzles and accounts of personal achievements.
The team which put it together give up two lunch hours a week to help get it to press on time.
They were partly inspired by former Herald Express editor Andy Phelan who visited the school and gave a talk on how to put together a stand-out newspaper, teacher Alan Bartlett said.
The Moosepaper also follows on from the success of the news broadcast which goes out every Tuesday morning.
Mr Bartlett said: "The Moosepaper is all their own work. All I do is proof-read it. They are really proud of it. Each class gets four or so copies but there is a possibility we could, in the autumn, get a copy printed for each pupil."
