Hello Internet welcome to HTC news in tonight’s edition we’re talking about the moving story of South Tyneside schools reaching out and supporting younger members of the LGBT community(Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender community, for those who didn’t know.) A member from the young people’s parliament, Kate Palmer said the following

“South Tyneside’s Young People’s Parliament want to make sure that all young people and staff in education are aware of the LGBT+ community and how they can help whether they are experiencing these feelings or not. It is a huge issue that is often not focused on.”

I’m, personally really happy that someone has decided to act on this and not just let it slide by unnoticed. This really is a beginning of a new era it truly is a new month, year, decade and century. I hope that any future proceeding is going to try and help those who don’t understand try and understand. Or even better to try and make people of a homophobic nature realise that we are all one and the same. The actions of South Tyneside’s Young People’s Parliament are putting them at the forefront of showing the country that a person’s sexuality doesn’t matter, what matters is that they don’t feel insecure about it and know that we will still respect them for who they are.


Year 8


Joe Root has been named the new England test team cricket captain replacing Alistair cook who stepped down last week. Root steps up from vice-captain, with Durham all-rounder Ben Stokes, 25, filling the role as his deputy. Since his debut is 2012 no England batsman has scored more runs than Root with an impressive 4594 runs in total. In the same time period, only India’s captain Virat Kohli has scored more runs than Root in all forms of international cricket.

Looking at the football now and after beating palace 4-0 last week Sunderland were involved in another 4-0 game only this time they were on the losing side. The Black Cats lost at home to Southampton in what was a shocking performance. The Saints took the lead in the 30th minute when Gabbiadini converted from Ryan Bertrand’s cross. The Italian scored again seconds before the break with a brilliant turn and finish inside the penalty area. Jason Denayer scored a late own goal and Shane Long’s simple finish in the 94th minute gave the visitors a deserved win. Sunderland remain in last place in the table.
