Bud­ding jour­nal­ists win pub­lish­ing deal

Harefield Gazette - - NEWS - By Alan Hayes alan.hayes@trin­i­tymir­

MEET the stars of jour­nal­ism in years to come – the Heathrow Stars.

The young re­porters at Heathrow Pri­mary School, in Har­mondsworth Lane, have worked ex­tremely hard – rare for jour­nal­ists – in­clud­ing right through their lunchtime (even rarer!) to get the mag­a­zine off the ground.

They de­cided pro­duc­ing and sell­ing a mag­a­zine full of in­ter­est­ing sto­ries for their school mates would be a great way to raise money for the school.

They even did a pub­lish­ing deal – the print­ing of the first edi­tion of Heathrow Stars was spon­sored by Lloyds Bank is now on sale at the school.

The pupils, aged six to 11, who are now hard at work on edi­tion two, got a bit of help from staff mem­bers Tracey Carter and Kather­ine Miah.

“The chil­dren

are pas­sion­ate about mak­ing a dif­fer­ence in their school and keep­ing all the pupils at Heathrow Pri­mary in­volved in what is go­ing on,” said Ms Miah.
