Joint Topical Focus in School's Newspaper
Friday, 09 July 2021
The latest edition of 'The View', the student-penned newspaper at Bolton School Girls' Division, has a strong joint focus on two intensely topical issues: the Covid pandemic and the environment.
In her article ‘The Impact of Covid-19 on the NHS’, Audrisha De looks at how frontline workers have gone above and beyond throughout the pandemic, as well as addressing the effect this has had on NHS staff. She also explores how other NHS services have been affected, and finally concludes: ‘This pandemic has made us realise the value of our times together as a community and brought it sharply into focus how invaluable and irreplaceable a role NHS plays to protect our lives.’
Later on in the issue, Isabella Fairclough reports on ‘Pandemic Puppy Peril’: the issues related to ownership of these furry friends that have arisen since the beginning of lockdown, from stolen puppies to abandoned dogs.
The secondary theme in this term’s issue is sustainability and the environment. In the article ‘Masks, Gloves and the Environment’, Batool Tabani explores the pandemic’s far-reaching impact on ecosystems around the UK and across the world. Karishma Ladha and Aisling McCabe co-authored an article exploring the ‘School’s Steps to Sustainability’, including the benefits of electronic learning and the ways in which Bolton School is tackling climate change. Olivia Matthews-Berry even addresses the question of sustainability in fashion in her article ‘A Fashionable Future’.
With additional reports on the nutritional value of the school’s lunches, tackling Motor Neurone Disease (MND) and psychological wellbeing in sport, as well as a list of the Top Tunes This Month, it’s certainly worth taking a look at ‘The View’ this summer!
