Introduction to Halcyon's Newspaper Club!
Hello, my name is Maxime Cannamela, I am 13 and I am in Grade 8. Last year, in my old school, I wrote a monthly school newspaper along with my fellow classmates during an extra-curricular activity. This year, for my service and action project, I would like to do the same thing except the newspaper would be released weekly and the club will be during Monday lunchtime in F03 and Friday lunchtime in F03 where the members of the club would meet. The newspaper would include some news articles, fun facts, comic strips and colourings. Anybody interested can join by emailing me on the following email: email@example.com and I will send you a Google Sheet form to fill in before entering. As soon as one person starts entering the club will the newspapers start being published for the following Monday.
Please ensure that you are wearing your lanyard at all times whilst at school. Further you MUST remember hand it back to Emily at the end of the day.
