NiE Welcome to 2016

Welcome back to a new year of Newspapers in Education.

The NiE program consists of an educational page published weekly throughout the school year.

Each weekly NiE page published in your paper follows a similar format.

The content of the NiE page will comprise of a set topic about a thought-provoking subject with information, analysis and opinion about current affairs and curriculum-linked subjects.

There will also be a number of other sections on the NiE page, designed in a consistent, useful and easy to read format, with ideas and activities for all our readers to sink their teeth into when they use their local newspaper.

During the year the NiE program will also provide NiExtensions with extra pages focusing on a special topic running over a five to ten day period.

For example the major sporting event for the year, the Summer Olympics will be covered in a NiE extension. 

In addition there is NiE Online offering another platform to access news and resources giving you the opportunity to access information about the Newspapers in Education program.

We wish you all the best for the year and hope you use your local newspaper and the NiE program to find out what's happening in the world around us
