A message from The Editor:
So in early November, I was emailed by Emma Collins, press officer at the UCLU Amnesty International Society. She informed me of an outreach project she’d been working on with the Journalism club at a local secondary school in Camden. I was asked if I’d be interested in featuring the students’ work on The Amnesty, and I agreed… and thus bloomed the greatest collaboration known to man. Our intention for submissions was simple: get the students to comment on world events in whatever form of media they preferred. Debate motions, open letters and short stories, were just some of the ways the students chose to express themselves. We wanted them engaged in “human issues” and I couldn’t be happier with the turn out: they’re great! Each Thursday, we hope to share the children’s work with you, and hope that we really hone in on the point that these matters affect us all...
Now, with introductions aside, we thought it was about time that we introduced you to the Haverstock Journalism team! But before we do that, here’s a little something about Haverstock school:
Haverstock is a co-educational school in Camden Town, North London. Producing political heavyweights including the likes of Ed Miliband, it is not a school that should be cantankerously dismissed. Students are engaged, well informed and quite frankly MEAN BUSINESS!
We’ve received a series of submissions that have not only been intelligently formed but well crafted and thought out. We hope these stories make you think as much as they made us!
Look out for our next post where you get to meet the authors behind the incoming articles!!
