Kepier Sports Academy have launched a school newspaper which has been put together by the students. The newspaper team decided on the type of stories to include, interviewed people themselves and even agreed on the name, fonts and colours of the final issue. The plan is to create a new issue every term at first, however if we have more to write about then we may need to move to half-termly issues. So, if you have anything you want to talk about - a school-related issue, an achievement, an event - write about it and be part of the school newspaper.

Our Head of Music Mr. Hall said "it was a lovely way to start off the Christmas season, and we hope to be invited back to perform again."
