This edition focuses on the litter that is destroying our environment. During our newspaper discussions, a proposal was made that perhaps students in the Bridge Centre and school detentions should do something productive around school instead of writing lines or completing arbitrary work. This got us thinking; should students in Bridge and school detention be made to complete community service and pick up litter around the school site instead?
In conversation with another student, who will remain anonymous, said that this was a good idea, and that it would be more stimulating and entertaining then doing work in bridge. A lot of the other students in the group seemed to agree with them. We asked seven (some wish to stay anonymous) members of staff their opinions on this, and the only staff members that we asked who disagreed was Mrs Collins of the French department, who said and “it doesn’t add to their education” and “they still have a right to their education”.
