PUPILS at Ladywell Primary School in Motherwell are preparing to launch their own newspaper.

The P6 and 7 class got some advice on what it takes to succeed in the world of publishing from Times & Speaker editor Martin Clark (back, centre) who gave them a talk on how to put together a newspaper.

The newspaper will be the first that the school has set up and there will be a section for each of the classes, details on sporting events as well as information on what is happening in the school.

The pupils will learn what it is like to work in a real newsroom and they will work within editorial, photography and advertising departments.
