Newspaper Study 2011 
Publication dates 12 - 29 Sept and 26 Oct (Mon, Wed Thurs only)

Timed to coincide with New Zealand hosting an international event based on our favourite sport. Each day of the study a page was published about a newspaper staff member and the job they do including samples of their work.  NiE's Rugby Mad captured the concepts, attitudes and values associated with sporting excellence and participation.
NiE Rugby Mad Blog
A NiE Rugby Mad Blog ran for the duration of the study. Posts could be submitted from anyone who registered.
Newspaper Study 2010
In 2010 APN Newspapers in Education published a Play the Games Newspaper Study based on the Commonwealth Games. The Play the Games Video Challenge asked students to demonstrate the principles of fair play and participation by creating, playing and filming an original Commonwealth Games team game.
Students worked in groups to design their own game and submit a three minute video showing the game being played and narrated for an NiE TV news report.
