The press club of the David G. Barshell, Sr. School System (DAGBASS) located in Paynesville has embarked on the production of the first post-war student newspaper named the Royal Herald Student Newspaper.
The idea of producing a newspaper was developed at a press club workshop sometime last year. Explaining how it got started, the president of the Royal Media Network, Sita Sore said the passion and zeal grew as the days went by and with determination the school press club began the venture.
Student Sore said the Royal Herald carries news articles from the school campus, true life stories, foreign news, sports, and advertisement from the general public as well as entertainment. “We call on you to promote us; advertise in our paper; we have the market to sell your products,” she concluded.
According to the proprietor of the school that runs two sessions (morning and afternoon), Ceebee C.D. Barshell, the school is a symbol of a paradigm shift in the educational system of the country as it seeks to uplift the curriculum with critical research in order to balance academic with discipline that would give birth to a patriotic and industrial generation.
Mr. Barshell said the school which is now six years old has operated on its own and described his administration’s strategic plan as making the students better prepared for tomorrow and keeping the school on par with international school systems.
