When I was in elementary school and high school, I published some school newspapers with the help of my classmates. This page contains scans of them.
The Okie Dokie Journal
The Okie Dokie Journal was published from 1987 to 1988 by the Grade 4 class of Ethel Milliken School in Regina, Saskatchewan. There were at least two issues. The Journal was designed by cutting and pasting together material from various sources:
- The covers, posters, and page headers were produced with The Print Shop or Print Master on an IBM-compatible and printed on a dot-matrix printer.
- The article text was word-processed in Pocket Writer 64 on a Commodore 64 and printed with a letter-quality DPS-1101 daisy-wheel printer.
- The Garfield cartoon and the back cover of the first issue were produced with Doodle on a commodore 64 and printed with a Smith-Corona Fastext 80 printer.
- Other illustrations were taken from magazine cuttings and printed clip art collections.
You can see scans of two issues by following the image links below.
The Mini-Post was published from 1988 to 1989 by the Grade 5 class of Ethel Milliken School in Regina, Saskatchewan. There was at least one issue. The journal was produced with a mish-mash of hand-drawing, hand-lettering, and desktop publishing (including The Newsroom, Bank Street Writer, and Pocket Writer 64 on the Commodore 64, and desktop publishing software for the Apple Macintosh 128K.) You can see a scan of the first issue by following the image link below.
And Now For Something Completely Different…
And Now For Something Completely Different… was published from 1995 to 1996 by the students of Campbell Collegiate in Regina, Saskatchewan. There were at least three issues. The journal was produced using WordPerfect on an IBM-compatible computer and printed on an Apple LaserWriter. The three issues I have will be scanned and posted here later.
