Mrs. Antabli from the school PTA has created a Journalism club where students learn how to debate and discuss topics, how to conduct a interviews with confidence, how to record the most important points and finally how to edit them. Journalism is mostly about how and when to listen and speak with a way of prioritising the journalistic-style stories. The group meets once a week and sometimes also at lunch times. The lessons are provided in basic journalism skills; such as general vocabulary, writing skills, an introduction to photography. As a group, the club brainstorms story ideas. Students are also involved with creating the school newsletter updates, they extend their reading, writing and research.
