A Basic Journalism course was conducted at Salesian College of Higher Education (SCHE) by the Bosco Communication in-charge Fr. Jonas Kerketta sdb for the B.A. 2nd sem. students from 24th to 26th April 2018.
In his presentation, Fr. Jonas pointed out that a well-crafted story should have five Ws (What, Who, When, Where and Why) and one H (How) in the lead of the news. The course focused on how to write news, article, and reports for the newspaper and magazine. As part of the assignment, the five groups created their own mock newspapers.
On the concluding speech, Rector of SCHE Fr. Tom Karthik sdb exhorted the students to develop and cultivate the art of news and report writing. He also said that writing is one of the means to bring about change in the society and promote good will among the people. 42 Students participated in the course.
