St Peter's 13-18
We are delighted to announce that the latest edition of Keystone, the pupil-led school magazine, has now launched!
Keystone is a periodical written and edited by Sixth Formers interested in the creative arts and contemporary culture at St Peter's School. All liaison with the publishers, design, editing and distribution are the responsibility of the pupil team, led by a designated chief editor.
This year, the production of the magazine has been delayed as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, but the pupils continued to collaborate remotely using cloud-based software to produce a professional quality magazine. Keystone - The Covid-19 Edition, with its iconic front cover, explores topical issues from Black Lives Matter to mental health, and is a snapshot of life as a young person in the years 2020-21.
Mrs Todd, who oversees the pupil-led team, said: "It was indeed an incredibly challenging year for the magazine, with pupils split into bubbles, so they were unable to meet as a whole group face-to-face. However, under the steady leadership of Freddy and Natasha, and the other Section Editors in Lower Sixth, we communicated in new ways, holding virtual editorial meetings with pupils across year groups and even across international borders!
"The pupils this year threw themselves into the process like never before, creatively using the time lost to other normal activities to write, draw, photograph and edit a publication that is absolutely professional quality."
We think this is an incredible piece of work and the pupils should be so proud. You can view the Keystone Magazine here.
