Thursday saw the second Pupil Editorial Board for the forthcoming edition of Chalk Talk. Pupils from Braehead, Abbotswells, Brimmond primaries and Hazlehead, St Machar and Peterhead academies came together at the Evening Express offices in Aberdeen to make a range of editorial decisions about the next edition of the supplement.
Pupils worked collaboratively to discuss and decide the layout of pages within the paper and to generate ideas about the cover of the winter edition of Chalk Talk. It was wonderful to see pupils working collaboratively to make thoughtful and informed decisions and I received very positive feedback from all of those who were involved. A few pupils even walked away with possible work experience opportunities thanks to the Deputy Editor, Craig Walker, who has been instrumental to the magazine and who led the day’s activities.
I have pulled together a gallery of some of the images from the day and want to highlight that the next edition of Chalk Talk will be published and included in the Evening Express on Tuesday 29th November.
Thank you again to the pupils and schools who participated in this Editorial Board and to all who have submitted articles for inclusion in this edition of the magazine.
