HOT OFF THE PRESS

Four lucky students from St Thomas More School in Wood Green took part in an exciting new media project run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation during their half term this week.

Four lucky students from St Thomas More School in Wood Green took part in an exciting new media project run by the Tottenham Hotspur Foundation during their half term this week.

The aim of the three day project was to give students an insight into the workings of sport journalism and provide them with experience of working to deadlines, interviewing and working with images.

The Club gave the student journalists exclusive access to the media areas before last night's game against Slavia Prague and they even got the chance to practice their interview skills on two of our Academy players Sam Cox and Jon Obika as a part of the project.

Come last night’s match and thanks to a partnership with The News of the World, students were able to shadow sports journalist Aidan Magee and Louis Woods, a photographer from the paper, before and after the match, even watching the pros at work in the post match press conference

The four students involved thoroughly enjoyed the project and will be returning to Spurs Learning Zone to prepare a presentation to take back into school and present to their teachers and peers. The group impressed staff at the News of the World sufficiently that we have been invited back to run similar projects for other potential journalists from local schools.
