Last week our 1st and 2nd year students joined forces to produce three separate 12 page newspapers: Bailey MailMedway Metro and Medway Scope. Behind these very impressive looking papers was a team of students and staff working calmly - and sometimes not so calmly - to get them done by deadline. Newsdays are an integral part of how we teach students to work as journalists from day one, keep to deadlines, work in teams and revel in the buzz of a newsroom. 

Have a look behind the scenes of our latest print newsday!




Interesting to see clear, incontrovertable evidence of Messrs Bailey and Kenny with their fingers on keyboards, in direct contravention of the CfJ's 'Medway Agreement' governing the conduct of staff editors during newsdays...

Is there a clause in the 'Medway Agreement' about handing out the templates WITH ad spaces five hours before the deadline? #ReeveSabotage

Clause 15.7 paragraph b1 of the unwritten agreement clearly states:

"The timing of the delivery of the flat plan to teams shall be entirely at the discretion of the director of learning & teaching, who shall be considered entirely blameless if he should happen to forget to hand it over when he said he would."
