CWC and CNWL students take over the Ham&High newspaper

11 students from City of Westminster College and College of North West London had an amazing opportunity to ‘take over’ the Ham&High newspaper for a week. The team, ranging in age from 17 to 20, have truly risen to the challenge, producing 25 articles for the paper and online, including columns, features and interviews.

It all started in February where students had been tasked with writing a short pitch for a story idea involving either their identity or community. We were all taken aback by the passion and confidence shown by the students.

During the take over week, students quizzed traders at Camden Market, grabbed a word with runners at the Paddington Recreation Ground, discussed the arts with the team at Jacksons Lane in Highgate and interviewed Cllr Angela Mason and Cllr Abdul Hai at Camden Town Hall on hard-hitting topics such as knife crime and racial inequality.

As promised at the beginning of the competition, one lucky student out of the 11 has won a paid summer internship with Archant, we would like to announce Carrie-Jayne Crawshaw​ as the winner. Carrie has worked extremely hard and produced outstanding work.

We would like to congratulate the students who took part in the take over week – Jessiara Marriott, Joshua Okakpu and Carrie-Jayne Crawshaw from the City of Westminster College and Valentina Romagnoli, Corey Golzey, Filimon Okbay, Kadeeja Warsame, Jamie Jones, Tadhg Ormond, Jamal Jadunandan and Paulina Mazulyte from the College of North West London.
