MEMBERS of a media club in Port Moresby visited The National newsroom yesterday to see how it produces a newspaper every day.
“This is the media club of the Jubilee Catholic Secondary (in Holola) and this term we are focussing on print media,” said club animator and teacher Sheryll Isoaimo.
“Last year, we went to one of the television stations and this year, we are here at The National.”
Isoaimo said the club aimed to get the members to become creative and critical thinkers in their news judgment.
The excursion is to help students understand the work of publishing news in mainstream media.
Students Jeremy Kila, 18, and Janice Magadimo, 16, both in grade 12 said the visit helped them to understand the processes involve in publishing news
“The club helps us to be critical creative communicators and after hearing what happens here, I now have a clear picture on the information I read in the newspaper,” Magadimo said.
Both students are taking science subjects but loved reading and writing, which created their interests in becoming club members and writing about their school events.
The club has around 60 interested members from grade nine to 12. Some did not make the excursion yesterday, Isoaimo says.
