News for students,

by students.

'The Lowdown' started as an idea. A want for an independent voice. A place where students could be heard. 

 

It came from a need. A need for a way for students to understand the events around them and the issues that faced our community.

 

Over the past few months, we have meticulously planned, workshopped, and created the groundwork of this paper, in order to create a product that we are subsequently proud of. Everything from a fully-fledged website to print copies of our editions, we wanted our product to surpass the limits of the stereotypical school newspaper. 

 

There have been moments of doubt, moments of failure, even a period where we didn’t know if 'The Lowdown' would ever come into fruition.

 

The main purpose of this club is to be a guide for students to navigate through the issues that affect our community the most, as well as lending an eye to global issues through a student perspective. This includes topics that directly affect students, as well as topics that affect the community.

OUR CONTENT

Articles

'The Lowdown' differentiates articles by length as well. Longer articles usually contain three or more pages of content (in spreads) and are more structured compared to shorter articles, which are usually within two pages. Longer articles generally fit into our editions, while shorter articles often published onto our website. The structure of these articles is flexible and is determined by the writers, to ensure as much liberty as possible. Publishing is determined upon the capacity of our website and editions.

Editions are magazine-like booklets distributed across schools. Because of limited paper space, editions will solely be filled with longer-styled (usually opinion) articles. Along with student spotlight, articles, and infographics, editions will loosely follow a monthly theme.
