Indore: In an effort to take learning out of the classroom, New Digamber Public School (NDPS) organised a field trip on Monday to the The Free Press Journal (FPJ) office to see how a newspaper is printed. With a zillion of questions in their minds, students of class V walked in the campus to understand the process involved in printing a newspaper. An interactive session between FP editor-in-chief Sanjeev Ratan Singh and students started when the students made the most of the visit by putting forth their queries regarding story making, process of printing of newspaper, work of editorial and designing.

“What is the deadline for newspaper? How all the pages of newspaper are formed? For how many hours news paper office remains open and doubt regarding weather forecast?” were some of the questions raised by the students.  A short introduction regarding FP followed by a live demonstration of the printing process was witnessed by the students.Student Divanshi Agrawal said “I am very excited to come here. When our teacher informed us about the visit, I was wondering how the newspaper is processed and how many copies are published in a day.” Students were also excited to know something different from studies during this visit.  Rakhi Khandelwal, one of the teachers of NDPS said “This is a good platform for students as well as for teachers where we got to know about the how the newsroom operates.”  Students learnt how news is collected from a source and how these are converted to form an ideal story for readers. They were also eager to see how computer designed news page is transformed into thousands of printed copies in a few minutes.
