The Jackal is the online school newspaper created and thought of by Mrs Andrews. The website was only in the second season and did not come up in the third, probably because it's creator- Mrs Andrews- had resigned. In House of Sibuna / House of Payback, Mara and Joy and Patricia all signed up. Patricia was signed up by Joy who had heard about it from Mrs Andrews and wanted to add gossip to the site. Eddie was also in the group, as his punishment for an earlier prank- giving everyone chocolate covered snails that Patricia had given to him as revenge.
Mrs. Andrews first made Mara the editor. However, after she posted a scandalous article on Vera, Joy was made editor in her place and Mara was no longer allowed to write articles under her own name. Later Mr Sweet allowed Mara to write on the website after Eddie and Jerome both vouched for her.
The Jackal was later almost shut down for Joy's harsh article about Nina, which she wrote under the alias Jack Jackal that Mara had set up because she was banned to write under her own name. Joy pretended to be Jack Jackal because she couldn't write the article with her name; otherwise, she would get in trouble. Another article, about Senkhara, was being written by Eddie and Mara, but Sibuna intervened and Fabian begged Joy to not allow it to be posted.
The Jackal later came in third in a contest against other school news sites that Joy had entered for them. There was also a best school blogger competition in which Mara ended up winning first place.
