Would you like to cooperate in writing an article?

A school in USA started a Global Newspaper among ten other schools across the globe. They were able to publish five editions of the newspaper. This year they would like to continue the project of publishing a global newspaper which highlights special events in classroom and community around the globe.

We were invited to take part by writing an article. I was thinking that we could write an article on our country's bicentenary. Therefore, whoever volunteers to write something about what you have learnt this year with Marita and about the special celebrations that took place in our country, just write it in the space provided below. Then I will edit it all together. What do you think?

Deadline: Sunday, September 12th
