Student actress lands role in touring production

Actress Phoebe Spencer-Hall is joining a touring theatre company to take on the role of Scrooge's sister 

altin a musical performance of A Christmas Carol.

The Haslingden High School student was interviewed by Catherine Smyth as part of the contract with the school to provide news stories for the press.

The story, along with a collection of photographs, made a Page 3 lead of the Lancashire Telegraph and was also used in the Rossendale Free Press and on About My Area community website.



The second School News in a Day of the new academic year has been produced at West End Community Primary School in Oswaldtwistle.

The Newspaper - called West End Times - was written by Year 4 pupils and sold to raise money for Harvest.

Teacher Mrs Kennett said: "The children sold lots of papers at Harvest and everyone has said how good it was."

Also this month... Haslingden High School students who reunited a pupil with her iPhone but first left a cheeky photo of themselves as the background found their good deed praised in a school assembly - along with their cheesy photograph which went on full view to everyone. The story was a lead in the Free Press and also on About My Area.

As part of PR for Rossendale Business Awards, clever designer Jake Ford designed the trophy which will be presented to the winners. The story was also in the Free Press and on About My Area.

A PR story for Amanda MacDougall of AM Accounts Ltd made a page lead in the Rossendale Free Press when her apprentice became a cover girl to help promote apprenticeships.

The latest Veterans In Communities newsletter was printed and a news story on the charity completing works on the memorial gardens in Whitworth features in the Lancashire Telegraph.

Coming in November - the third and fourth School News in a Day projects for this academic year. Firstly at St Saviour's and then at Britannia Primary School. I will also be delivering a Year 6 lesson on Anti-bullying and am looking forward to a trip to Brighton to discuss the Sophie Lancaster Book with criminology graduates.

Busy... busy... busy...
