Student reporters taking over The News

Keen KSS class to tackle many stories this month on how youth impact our community

Kwalikum Secondary School students interested in journalism hold an editorial meeting to determine the scope and breadth of their planned coverage of their community.

Given the opportunity to direct editorial coverage in The News for one edition next month, students have come up with an impressive  and ambitious list of stories.

Kati Worthen’s Grade 12 English class at Kwalikum Secondary School (as well as other interested students) will be in the community from now until April 7, tackling youth impacts and issues in the mid-Island.

The News has offered a significant number of its pages in the Friday, April 8 edition for the students’ work.

After a presentation on the basics of journalism, the class held an editorial meeting recently to flesh out the theme and story list. The students will take spring break to interview peers and others and produce photos. 

Their work will represent their views and issues on a variety of local topics and should make for great reading.

Watch for the April 8 edition and see what local youth are talking — and writing about in our community.
