Awesome Archie headline news in latest Jill Dando newspaper

The latest children’s newspaper inspired by BBC TV legend Jill Dando is going out to the community.

The Good News Post features inspirational teenage Worle Community School Academy (WCSA) gardener Archie and his civic community park clean ups.

It also covers how students have responded to the bad news of Covid19 to spark their medical careers.

The 8-page The Post is written by students aged 8 to 18 in the Priory Learning Trust across Weston, Highbridge and Burnham.

It is packed full of good news.

Olivia Finch, aged 16, has been Student Editor for several years and has now graduated from WCSA to the thriving TPLT school based Sixth Form at The King Alfred School Academy.

New Editors are Josh Keyes, 15, of WCSA and Tamsen, 13, of Priory Community School Academy.

Josh said: “Our reporters enthusiastically put together stories from across our schools and community. This is a brilliant edition of The Post.”

Jill Dando was a former student of Worle, and rose to become Britain’s best journalist before being murdered in 1999. 

Now dozens of students in her memory are writing good news stories. 

Jill’s brother Nigel, a professional journalist of 48 years, helps in the training along with other professional reporters.
