  • School clubs – theater, literature, science … 
  • School band, orchestra, choir … 

What else is there? What is the school’s current topic of discussion? E.g. 

  • Food offer in the cafeteria 
  • School party 
  • Introduction of school uniforms 
  • Dismantling the table tennis table … 

What do you and the other students enjoy? Write about it, e.g.

  • Latest music 
  • Popular movies 
  • Good books 
  • Interesting art 
  • Exciting games (board games and on the PC) 

Let others write about their recommendations and provide others with special tips.

School history 

Do some research and tell a little about the history of your school. Celebrate your school and the anniversary, for example: 

  • Foundation of the school 
  • History of the school name 
  • What was it like here 50 years ago? 
  • Renovation: before and after photos of the school building (s) 
  • Local news Find out what’s going on in the near area of the school. Which of these is also interesting for the students and teachers. Write reports and articles – and don’t forget to take photos as well.

Whats new?

  • Will the bus stop be rebuilt?
  • Is there a new sports complex?
  • Has a new basketball hoop been installed in the park?
  • Interview with the mayor
  • Interview other important groups of people in your city or town
  • Opinions and perspectives of the students

Ask your classmates to write opinion articles, letters to the editor, and editorials, some examples:

  • School rules
  • School classes and subjects
  • School uniforms
  • What makes a good teacher?
  • What makes a good student?


Opinions and tips on personal topics (can also be found in a school newspaper), e.g.

  • How do you make friends? 
  • How do you work well together? (Teamwork) 
  • How can you overcome fear? 
  • How can you get rid of bad habits? 
  • How can you deal with peer pressure?
