Each issue of Westmere News took about a day to produce, with copies selling at between 10p and 25p.

The project was so successful that the newsletter was entered into a national competition where the pupils could win the chance to produce a page for the Daily Telegraph.

School staff said the benefits for the children were enormous as the youngsters learned to interview, write stories and features, use computers and provide illustrations.
