They explained to them the whole process of a newspaper -- right from the point reporters collect information, how it gets edited, how pages are made and finally how it gets printed and reaches the public.
In an attempt to educate students about the various other future prospects available to them besides the usual subjects the management of Aravinda School, Guntur organised a school trip for the 9 Standard students of their school to visit The Hindu office in Vijayawada on Monday.
Around 50 students came on this trip where they interacted with the Chief of Bureau and reporters. The representatives of the news bureau explained to them the basics of news and its definition. Students like Shandini knew the abbreviation “N-North, E- East, W- West and S- South” but more insight was given to them by the COB. They explained to them the whole process of a newspaper -- right from the point reporters collect information, how it gets edited, how pages are made and finally how it gets printed and reaches the public.
Students showed utmost interest in the information they were getting and were very curious about some of the aspects of newspaper. Revathi, a student who cares about the environment, was worried about the amount of paper needed to print papers and whether recycled paper was used.
Hemanjali, on the other hand, was curious how news was collected from all over the world and what would be done to an already printed edition in case of a last minute emergency.
Other students like K. Naga Sasi Kumar and Hemalatha showed interest in the editorial department. At the end of the trip, the students felt that it was a perfect one where they got to know something new and also fun because of all the various processes involved.
