    This opportunity takes place between 09 Oct 2017 and 31 May 2018. Applications closed on 03 Jan.

    ‘Make-A-Mag’ is a 6-week long project, where a group of volunteers visit a local primary school for an hour a week to design and create a magazine with students. Each week we work on developing the student’s skills in writing, interviewing, designing and photography, with the final week of the project acting as a ‘Press Release Party’ where each of the students can celebrate their efforts by receiving a certificate for completing the project. It is also during this party that the students get to see the finished magazine. We are looking for 3 passionate and enthusiastic individuals to take part in a 6-week project in a local primary school. We would like individuals who are excited about working with approximately ten Year 5 or Year 6 pupils. An interest in media would be beneficial, as the project aims to get the students excited about the world of media along with publishing and journalism. The sessions take place during semester 2 but some planning may be required during semester 1. PLEASE NOTE: Project may run after semester 2 finishes (to accommodate Y6 SATs) and volunteers may still be required to attend the school.
