Shine Winners Workshop
On Thursday 6th May three Y8 students from our academy took part in the Shine Winners Workshop via Zoom with TES (Times Educational Supplement) along with two other schools. This was one of the prizes that the AX News team won for the Best Newspaper award category in 2020 in the Shine School Media Awards annual competition.
The day consisted of various mini workshops taking place all day with the features team, news team, sub-editor and social media team all giving an insight into their job roles and how to get a story to print. The students were set various interactive tasks to do and these were dealt with in a very mature manner.
The feedback was great from the TES editor who said that all the staff involved were very impressed with the students abilities and how they approached the tasks; some budding journalists and media professionals amongst them for sure!
