HEADMASTER'S DREAM COME TRUE!
At the beginning it was only a wall
newspaper "The School News". A group of a few
tenformers with the headmaster's idea and their editor
Jolanta Lukenskaitė started releasing it in September
1992. It had a handwritten form then and it contained
articles about important school life events, sports
results, cartoons, greetings, sympathies and s.o. Later
it acquired a typewritten form and now it is a computer
edited document. It has been released once or twice a
year. Džilda Butkuvienė, our Lithuanian teacher was
responsible for its editing during the period from 1995
to 2008. Since that year she moved her house and changed
her work place. The edition of the school newspaper for
two years was continued by Jolanta, the founder of our
newspaper. Now the newspaper is being prepared and
edited by Raimonda Klangauskaitė, another Lithuanian
teacher at our school. Our newspaper has its editorial
column now and pictures from different events have been
used to illustrate articles. We can get acquainted with
our school main event descriptions, students' essays and
poetry in it.
