Student Newspaper Spring 2017
Over the past few weeks, 15 students from Years 7 & 8 have been busy preparing articles for the Spring edition of the ‘AX NEWS’.
This culminated in the students interviewing students and staff on various items such as news, sport and entertainment and then travelled to Lincoln University to work with journalism lecturers who spent a full day helping our students in bringing all their articles together to produce the ‘AX NEWS’
Academy Principal, Joe Sellars, said ‘We have produced our newspaper working with Lincoln University for 8 years and each has been even better than the ones before and we expect the spring edition to keep up this high standard. Our students put in an awful lot of preparatory work before the full day with the university and this ensures that we produce a great read. An entirely new set of young reporters have worked on this paper and their enthusiasm and dedication has been exceptional.’
Copies of the newspaper have been distributed to students, parents & members of the community. Click on the link below to download a copy of the AX NEWS Spring Edition 2017- Enjoy the read
