A pre-School from Mulifanua visited the headquarters of the Samoa Observer Newspaper yesterday morning.
Principal Samu Feilo said the class field trip is part of their curriculum this term.
“My students are learning about ways of communication this term hence why we are here this morning,” he said.
“The students are learning about four different topics and ways of communications is one of those topics.
“So throughout the week, we have been learning about different ways of communication and we showed the students that this is another way of communication which is through the newspaper.”
Mr. Feilo went on to say that the students and parents have been looking forward to this trip.
“They (students) got to meet the Editor Mata’afa Keni Lesa, the person they see on the editorial pages and that was just fantastic,” he said.
“During the meeting, Mataafa touched on some points that I have taught my students so that was good and also the parents, this is their first time in the newspaper office and so they were as excited as the students.”
Asked how the visit benefits the students, Mr. Feilo said the students got to see where the newspaper is produced.
“They have been learning about ways of communication but coming here and seeing for themselves where the newspaper is produced is just fantastic,” he said.
“They will always remember this trip and I’m sure they have learned because at this age their minds are sharp and they will never forget about this trip.”
He added that this will not be the last time his school will visit Samoa Observer.
They also visited Radio Polynesian and TV1.
