Students of St Thomas Aquinas Primary School and Sigatoka District School visited the Fiji Sun’s head office and production centre in Walu Bay, Suva, yesterday.

St Thomas Aquinas teacher Suliana Valeca said the trip was part of the students’ excursion trip around Suva. The school is located in Veisari outside of Lami.

“It is part of the Social Studies subject that we learn about the newspaper so we want them not only to know about it but also come out and see how newspapers are produced and how journalists work,” Ms Valeca said.

“It will not only benefit the students but it will also enable them to know more about the field of journalism.”

They also visited the Fiji TV office, Water Authority of Fiji and the Nausori International Airport.

St Thomas Year Two student Bernadette Brown, 7, said she enjoyed the trip because she was able to see how and where newspapers were produced.

Meanwhile, Sigatoka District School’s headteacher Kaliappa Gounder said the trip was for the students to see what they had learned inside the classroom about the media.

“The trip will also teach them about the different facilities and machines that produce newspapers,” Mr Gounder said.

“From here we will be going to FBC TV and the Fiji Museum.”

Parents and teachers of both schools were part of the excursion.
