Aoga Fiamalamalama visits Samoa Observer

The senior class of the Aoga Fiamalamalama School at Alafua visited the Samoa Observer company on Tuesday to learn the daily operations of the newspaper company. 

Six students and three teachers visited the company. The eldest of the class was a 28-year-old.

One of the teachers, Lisi Apauaa Tatupu said there's huge potential for students to become writers and whoever they want to be in the future. 

“We already have some of our students working in certain companies and it’s our dream come true for them to pursue their careers as normal people like us,” she said.

Samoa Observer Editor Mata'afa Keni Lesa welcomed the group and explained the daily operations of the company. 

Mata'afa said he was encouraged that the students were interested in the work of the newspaper and encouraged them to keep learning.

“We’re very grateful for this opportunity and I know although some of them might not catch up that fast but at least they have a similar knowledge of what the newspaper is about and what the future looks like for our students that love writing,” another teacher, Sepoima Mika said.
