HNC has revealed that the HNC Echo, the magazine written for students, by students, has now been published following the end of the journalism enrichment for this academic year.

During the ten week journalism enrichment activity students have the opportunity to learn more about pursuing a career in the media, covering a range of areas from interviewing techniques, writing a feature, the news triangle, writing in response to a brief and media law, amongst a range of others. They have also enjoyed a number of guest speakers from the media industry. The enrichment is an opportunity for students to explore life as a journalist, while expressing themselves creatively in an article of their choice. However, the enrichment is open to all students, irrespective of their future career ambitions.

The collection of their work is now available to enjoy here. Covering everything from the Israel-Palestine conflict and reviews of music from across the decades to exploring the surprising past of the College’s Principal Marcus and a look at the fairness of the XL bully dog ban, there is a hugely diverse range of investigative and entertaining pieces.

Hayley Doyle, who runs this enrichment comments: “After a busy ten weeks of exploring all the different elements that can go into a great article, I am really proud to be publishing the collection of work from our young journalists. They have really put their skills and knowledge to the test to research, investigate and write some brilliantly insightful pieces on a range of current issues, and topics of interest to their fellow students. The HNC Echo is genuinely a great read, and I hope that students, parents/carers and our wider community enjoy the fruits of our students’ hard work!”
