Year 10 students of Beqa Yanuca Secondary School on Beqa Island visited the Fiji Sun headquarters at Walu Bay, Suva, on Wednesday.
For 16-year-old, Peniasi Tuivaya said the visit helped shaped his future.
“I always want to know how the newspaper is made and after the visit today, I have made up my mind that I would love to work in this field in the future,” he said.
“One of the best things I learned is that you learn new things everyday when you’re a journalist and meet people you only see on the television,”he said.
Tuivaya wants to be a sports reporter in the future.
Assistant principal Veremi Kauregu said the visit was part of the students Social Science topic in industrialisation and urbanisation.
“I believe this is a good opportunity for students to get exposure because most of the students on the island usually drop out of school because they know that they will get a job in the hotels,” Kauregu said.
“I believe students will get inspired to aim for higher and better qualification.”
The school is attended by children from nine villages in Beqa and one village on Yanuca Island.
The school has roll of 95 students.
