The enthusiastic trio are reporters for Jill Dando News out of Jill Dando’s former school in Weston-super-Mare, England.

With kindness positivity and brilliance – just like Jill  demonstrated – they will now find, write and post local, national and world good news stories from the Scouts for the Good News Post – the unique newspaper that merges good news with happiness.

The trio from Worle Community School Academy in Worle, Weston-super-Mare, Somerset are excited for the challenge. 

Oliver is a former scout of 8 years while Zac and Rupert are both active scouts.

Scouts are a UK and world organisation designed to prepare young people aged 4 to 25 with skills for life. Bear Grylls is their ambassador and scouting empowers young people to make a positive contribution to society.

Oliver said: “Scouts are a very community friendly way to protect the environment, make friends and learn valuables.” 

Rupert said “ I like scouts because it is full of fun and excitement.” 

Zac said “I am very excited to be a Scout Correspondent because scouts has been my hobby for many years. “ 

WCSA is part of The Priory Learning Trust and has its own Jill Dando News Centre.
