Student journalists impress

Inside today's Wanaka Sun

From the classroom to newsroom with Holy Family School

After successful workshops held during Holy Family School’s Creativity Conference at the beginning of the term, the Wanaka Sun was invited back to hold another newsroom session with interested students.

The students, aged from eight to 11-years-old were tasked with researching, writing, editing and taking photographs for their own news stories.

Wanaka Sun editor Ruth Blunt then had the difficult job of selecting articles for this week’s newspaper.

“I was so impressed with the students’ submissions. They all did a fantastic job writing and researching their own stories. It was difficult to choose just a few of the articles, so we’ve decided to publish all of them on our website,” Ruth said.  

“This selection is just a sample of the young talent we have in Wanaka.”

The articles were sub-edited by ten-year-old Hunter Heath.
