Students join the press pack

Students in Transition Year at Coláiste Cois Life are among the thousands learning how newspapers work as part of the Press Pass initiative.

The TY students scrutinise the press, and learn about categories of newspaper writing, including news, features, and sport.

Roisin Beaver, a teacher at Coláiste Cois Life, helped put together the workbook.

"We tried to focus on articles that would be of interest to teenagers. There are articles about drink and drugs, music, diet and celebrity."

The workbook gives advice on how to structure articles and take good news photos.

Students will also have the opportunity to enter a national writing competition.
