News to the world as students start new Jill Dando News Centre

By Georgia Mann

A brand new area has been constructed at The King Alfred School, an Academy, to report on exciting events to the wider community. 

The News Centre has been set up in memory of Jill Dando, an inspirational and successful journalist born in Weston-Super-Mare, who died in 1999 aged only 37..

The jacketed students will involve the local community by reporting on their achievements. News will feature a wide spectrum of subjects, from hobbies to heroic acts. They aim to continue what Jill Dando dedicated her life to; reporting news to the world.

Principal Nathan Jenkins said: “We are delighted to launch our new Jill Dando News Centre. The students have been buzzing for weeks.”
