SMC introduces a Journalism Club

A group of keen writers is getting a career headstart by joining a journalism club at school.

St Mary’s College introduced the club at the beginning of the year to give students an insight into the media world.

Journalism club facilitator Eryn Gower said the club was popular with students.

“We have almost 40 kids in the club, with students from Years 8 -12,” she said.

“Everyone has a role. We have photographers, videographers, graphic designers, reporters and editors.

“They all do their roles and then report back to me.”

Ms Gower said she started the club due to interest and wanting to create an extra-curricular activity for students.

“As an English teacher, I noticed there were not many activities which were centered around writing,” she said.

“We have kids who are passionate about writing and media arts, so I thought it would be a good idea to combine the two.”

If you are interested in joining the club, please contact Ms Eryn Gower for more information.
