49 pupils from the Star of Suhum Cluster of Schools in the Eastern Region accompanied by five teachers, have paid a familiarisation tour to the New Times Corporation, the publishers of the Ghanaian Times and the Spectator, in Accra.
At The Spectator newsroom, the Deputy Editor, and Acting Editor of the Spectator, MrsGeorgina Quaittoo, the News Editor of the Spectator,Mr Castro Zangina- Tong took turns to brief the pupils on newspaper production process and how front-page stories were selected among others.
The pupils were thrown the challenge to take interest in writing letters and short stories to The Spectator for publication to enable them to improve upon their writing skills.
They were also told that the paper always kept its credibility by refraining from the publication of fake stories which could land it in trouble.
In response to a question on the use of pictures in publication, the pupils were educated on the fact that pictures gave credence tostories.
