Grooming future journalists

18 February 2019 | Education

Leandrea Louw - The Namibia Media Holdings (NMH) youth brand, My Zone, hosted its fourth media camp in Windhoek recently.

Seven schools from Walvis Bay and Swakopmund attended the camp, which included Walvis Bay Private High School, The Dolphin Schools, Kuisebmond Secondary School, Duinesig Combined School, Westside High School, Namib High School and Pro-Ed Academy.

The camp forms part of the NMH school newspaper project which was started in 2015, to give the opportunity to various schools across the country to print their own eight-page newspaper.

The learners received training on media ethics, basics of writing an article, photojournalism, multimedia and online journalism, as well as training on the elements of design.

They also had a chance to sit down with the CEO of NMH, Albe Botha, general manager of publications Arrie Hougaard, the news editor of Republikein, Ronelle Rademeyer, the editor of Namibian Sun, Festus Nakatana, the editor of the Allgemeine Zeitung, Frank Steffan, and founder of the Namibian Sun newspaper Willie Olivier.

The first school newspaper to be published for the Erongo will be The Dolphin Digest by The Dolphin Schools on 24 February and the second one will be Duine se Lyne by De Duine Secondary School on 3 March.
