Delightful Bunch Schools students visit The Guardian
Students of Delightful Bunch Schools, Gbagada, Lagos recently paid an end-of-year visit to The Guardian’s corporate headquarters, Rutam House, Oshodi-Apapa Expressway, Lagos.
In the outgoing year, more than a dozen schools from primary to tertiary level within and outside the country had come calling at Rutam House to learn different stages and processes involved in newspaper production, from news gathering to printing, to circulating and other aspects involved in newspaper management, with each praising the paper for its quality and ensuring that only the best and prompt information is dished out to the public.
The pupils, who dressed in the traditional Christmas colour of red, came alongside five of their schoolteachers. They were orderly, intelligent, lively and inquisitive, as they asked pertinent questions while being conducted round the organisation.
Afterwards, Njoku Cynthia Amarachi, who led the 45 pupils to the company’s premises said: “We were educated on stages involved in newspapers production, what a newspapers company is all about and how the media is shaping the world. We also learned how as children, we must be informed of what is going on around us. The Guardian gave us information on things around us, educate and entertained our pupils and we are delighted to be here.
“The pupils have learnt some things they will never forget. They learnt about the different colours used in production, as well as the fact that the library is not limited to schools alone. They know now that organisations can also have their own libraries.”
She urged parents to encourage their children to learn things outside of the classroom.
“A media house like The Guardian is one of the best places where students can learn everything, and exposing them will help them make early decision on what they want to be in future,” she said.
