Launching the Kings Brighton Bulletin school newspaper

Students at Kings Brighton have launched a monthly school newspaper, The Kings Brighton Bulletin, or KBB News.

Members of the Student Council, Gabriela (President), Tekena (Vice President), Aqwika, Yoshi and Khue (Caroline), supervised by Enrichment and Communications Coordinator John Murphy, launched their first issue on 10th October with a bake sale, in aid of local charity The Clock Tower Sanctuary.

The newspaper contains articles and reviews, Brighton events, and even an advice column 'Ask John'. For future issues, KBB News is looking for contributors — any students with illustration or graphic design skills, or who'd like to write a review or article, are encouraged to get involved!

Well done to the KBB News team on a fantastic first issue!

Welcome to the Kings Brighton Bulletin

My name is Gabriela and I’m the Student Council President. First of all, I want to give you a warm welcome, or a welcome back to Kings Brighton! This new academic year of 2019/2020 has loads of exciting opportunities and challenges ahead of us, and I can’t wait to share it all with you!

We, members of the student council, understand that is very difficult coming to a different country far away from home, or even to a new school (if you’re a local student). At first, we all feel lonely, isolated, homesick and scared. Our solution to that is to engage all students in different activities throughout the year. Consequently, it will be created a sense of belonging and connection, which is a great antidote to all the overwhelming feelings we might face during our student life.

Done with talking, let’s go to action! This month of October we will launch our school newspaper called Kings Brighton Bulletin, where nice articles and opportunities in the school will be shared.

The launch will be on Thursday the 10th with a bake sale. Throughout the year we will have bake sales to raise money for the Clock Tower Sanctuary, a local charity that supports homeless teenagers and young adults around Brighton & Hove. You can help by donating money, even if it’s just £1, baking/ buying cake for our bake sales, or simply by asking friends and family to help out through social media and word of mouth.

Next week, starting on Monday 14th, we will have a table tennis competition happening during break times all week and there will be prizes for the top 3 competitors!

Later on towards the end of the month, we will have a special Halloween programme. On the 30th (Wednesday), there will be pumpkin carving and a walking tour around the city to hear about local horror stories.

The following day the 31st (Thursday) — official Halloween day — it will be the launch of our karaoke club in the coolest place ever, Lucky Voice Karaoke Brighton! After the karaoke, on the same day, we will come back to school to watch a movie with sweets, popcorn and soda in the canteen. Warning! Get your nicest Halloween costume and come along to have fun with your friends. No costume = No popcorn!

Further details about the times of each of these Halloween activities will be announced closer to the dates.

If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to talk in person with me, Tekena (Student Council Vice-President) or John Murphy (Enrichment and Communications Coordinator).

We are really looking forward hearing from you!
