School Newspaper

Welcome to our St Austin’s Newspaper

A big welcome to an exciting new venture for our school – the St Austin’s newspaper.

Over the coming weeks this page will provide regular updates on the progress of our newspaper. There is also a link to our ‘short story writing competition’ – information about how to enter this competition is now available by pressing this link.

A team of year 6 children are leading this project but anybody in the school can contribute articles. If you wish to write an article, please complete it at home and hand it to Mr Hints by Friday 14th December. Alternatively, you can word process your report and email it to the school office:

We can announce that the first edition of our newspaper will be ‘going to press’ on Friday 21st December – details about how you can get a copy will be released shortly.

Stay tuned for more updates over the coming days!

We will give you a title and a blurb and the rest is over to you. You can let your imaginations run wild! There is only one rule: your story must be no more than 100 words long.
