Great teamwork

Good neighbours, The Mirror and Carihi Secondary, collaborated last year to  produce the Carihi Mirror, a news/feature page produced by students. It’s been a success locally and, now, nationally! The bi-weekly page, which runs in The Mirror, received first place among all community newspapers in Canada for Young Reader Engagement Initiative. The Great Ideas Awards will be handed out by Newspapers Canada in May. Celebrating the award in front of Carihi are (from left) student reporters Larissa Melville, Tara Warkentin and Greta Hamilton, teacher Nic Pisterzi, vice-principal Laird Ruehlen, principal Sean Toal, Mirror publisher Dave Hamilton and editor Alistair Taylor. - Paul Rudan/The Mirror
