From classroom to newsroom
YOUNGSTERS from an Ipswich school swapped the classroom for the newsroom as part of a sixth form series of work experience. The students from Northgate High School took turns to visit The Evening Star for an afternoon and saw how the paper was produced.
YOUNGSTERS from an Ipswich school swapped the classroom for the newsroom as part of a sixth form series of work experience.
The students from Northgate High School took turns to visit The Evening Star for an afternoon and saw how the paper was produced.
Ben Warner, Jenny Gray, Lauren Williams, Chloe Emiabata , Sophia Kelly and Zabed Quddus, were the final "trainees" to visit the Star from the school during the project.
During the series, the teenagers got to see the presses in motion as well as finding out how reports are written and taking their turn at being newsroom reporters.
Each day of work experience varied but the session generally included a tour of the offices a chance to write stories for publication and a chat with the staff. The students who are all carrying media studies as part of their school course work spent time shadowing reporters, photographers and sub editors.
Many of them are keen to pursue a career in journalism.
