Student Voice: EIC Magazine Launch

Student Voice: EIC School Magazine

Ahead of our EIC School Magazine which is due to launch in January, we sat down with Alexandra. Alexandra is a Year 13 student who has been nominated as the Editor of the magazine for this year. Alexandra will be responsible for gathering content, collating the magazine and ensuring it is accessible for all our students. 

Here is what Alexandra had to say about taking on this new and exciting role here at EIC:

What inspired you to get involved with the magazine? Why do you think you were nominated?

When I first started Year 13 it was clear that there was more of an importance being placed on student voices and that our opinion could really make an impact on what was happening on a day-to-basis at the College. It was because of this that one of the first ideas I had at the start of term was to get a school magazine running. 

When our head of MFL, Nemone, got in touch with me to tell me more about the project I was of course more than happy to get involved. I think a school magazine is exactly the type of platform that we need as students to be able to raise any ideas that we have moving forward and as an area for the collective voice of students to really come together.

When is it launching? What preparations have been involved so far?

It will be launching in January. We are really focusing on what content we need and how we will be able to gather this information. We also want to make sure the magazine is sustainable for a long period of time and that there is always engaging news to encourage students to keep reading. As an example of one of our first projects, we will be having a page on staff members as a launch as a nice way to get to know the teachers better. It is also a good idea to help staff and students across departments get to know each other better. We are also hoping to include small competitions that will be accessible online to encourage more students to get involved. 

In the early stages of the magazine we also want as much feedback as possible, so we are hoping to set up an anonymous feedback system where students can suggest ideas for the next magazine. 

Watch this space: we are hoping to be able to share sneak peaks of the school magazine ahead of the launch, so keep an eye out! In the meantime, Good Luck to Nemone, Alex and all the other students who will be involved in the launch.
