Journalism at Nayland is practical and production-based with a focus on print media. Classes are responsible for putting together the school’s online newspaper, Circuit. This was established in 1979 and is the longest-running school newspaper in the country.
Students learn how to interview and write stories, design layout, use computer publishing programs and take photographs. They need to meet deadlines and work together as a team. They also develop an awareness of news and current events and an understanding of the role of the media in a democracy.
The course is nationally recognised and a great preparation for those hoping to apply for journalism, broadcasting or media courses at tertiary level. It also develops useful skills applicable to careers in communications, public relations and publishing.
