Why have a school newspaper? Why have one?

Loads of people who work in media jobs started out by writing for school or college newspapers.

It's a great way of learning how a story is put together. You can also learn about the different jobs involved and work out which one you might be interested in.

Having a newspaper or magazine can also make your school a better place. By letting people know what's going on you make it easier to organise clubs and events.

Papers also help people talk about the things that they are unhappy with and that can lead to changes in the way a school works.
