Deleting News Forum but Allowing News

We don't want the News Forum accessible by our students.  So we disable/delete this by setting the number of news items to 0 in the course settings.  However - although it still shows the  News Block - even privileged news can notnow  add news items.

What we want to do is as follows:

- not show the News Forum to students

- show the News block

- only permit privileged users to create news items (e.g teachers)

Any idea on how we do this?
