New approach needed for school newsletters
On all my non-EGJP sites, (all primaries BTW) I've employed a simple system of publishing the weekly newsletter.
Head/School Sec writes it (in Word or Publisher) and then converts it to PDF (using a virtual PDF printer) into a folder
On static sites, they run DirHTML which produces a list of all PDFs and then they FTP the html file list and the most recent PDF up to the website.
On my CMSimple sites they just have to upload the PDF and I've a modified small PHP script that autogenerates the webpage with the PDFs linked on it

Now, I could modify the CMSimple script and turn it into a joomla module but I'm wondering whether there is a better "joomla way" of achieving the end result - easy access to current and past newsletters for the parents and easy for Head/Sec to get them online, via normal joomla editing rather than using FTP?
What methods is everyone else using?
