A GROUP of teenage girls from Fenland and West Norfolk celebrated the launch of their own magazine, Diamondz, at the Professional Development Centre in King's Lynn on Monday.
Diamondz has been written, designed and printed by Year 9 girls from Terrington St Clement, Smithdon and Marshland High Schools as part of a project designed to demonstrate their creativity and explore the careers that could be available to them in the future.
The magazine contains articles covering a range of topics such as music, sport and fashion all of which have been written by members of the group either independently or in groups.
The magazine will be distributed throughout the three high schools involved. During the eight month project group members have interviewed and received talks from several guest speakers.
Sarah Pink, Project Coordinator, explained: "The girls have worked so hard to produce their own magazine and really engaged in all the presentations we arranged. A range of people have visited our sessions including a vet, a broadcast journalist and a barrister."
"The idea of this project is to help these young people see the possibilities beyond school and raise their aspirations for the future. I know they have all really enjoyed being involved and should be very proud of what they have achieved."
