Youngsters scoop news ideas.
A GROUP of pupils visited the Coventry Evening Telegraph to get ideas for their own newspaper.
Pupils from Alice Stevens School in Ashington Grove, Whitley, Coventry, and Whitley Abbey School in nearby Abbey Road spent a day at the Evening Telegraph offices in Corporation Street, Coventry city centre. They visited different departments including advertising and editorial and picked up ideas for their own newspaper Young News, Young Views.
The visit was organised by youth workers from Coventry Youth Service who help the pupils produce Young News, Young Views. Among those on the visit was Charl Lynch, 12, of Whitley Abbey School. He said: "It's been good for seeing what goes on and getting ideas. And we're going to write a story for our paper about this visit."
Senior youth worker Steve Ward said: "It's been very interesting to find out about how the newspaper is put together."
