Year 7-8 Newspaper
Last October many of you will have recently had the pleasure of reading the Year 7–8 newspaper called The Encounter. The 12-page newspaper was distributed inside the Manawatu Guardian and the leading headline was “Life after LAC”.
Under Mrs Paki and Mrs Ngarepa’s guidance, the Year 7 and 8 students ‘investigated’ individuals from the Alumni. Having done so, students wrote an article which shared that passed student’s story at LAC. No doubt the process would have provided the opportunity to make comparisons over what has and has not changed at LAC over the years.
As the newspaper circulation was in the tens of thousands there has been a significant response. The publication has brought a lot of joy to a wide range of people within our community and students. Congratulations to Year 7 and 8s, Mrs Paki and Mrs Ngarepa. The learning that took place was as impressive as the newspaper itself.
