ASPIRING journalists from Nomaswazi High visited Maritzburg Echo recently to take a closer look at the world of journalism and print media.

The children, who print their school paper, Fiat Lux, also toured Paarl Coldset printers where they watched Echo being printed. The young “reporters” toured various departments within Echo where they learnt about the different departments such as editorial, design and layout, graphics and sales.

“We would like to extend a word of thanks on behalf of the Press Club pupils, staff and principal of the school for the tour.

“The pupils reported that they were not only made to feel welcome, but also found the experience very educational, motivational and enjoyable.

“The whole experience has left them not only inspired about future editions of our publication, but also even inspired about writing and careers in journalism and news industry,” said Sboniso Mkhize of the finance and administration department of Nomaswazi­ High.

He said the principal and staff also thanked all at Echo for understanding and supporting the vision and purpose of the tour.

“You have made a lasting positive impression on these young girls and boys. We also understand and appreciate everyone taking time out of their busy schedule to accommodate us so graciously,” he added.
