In a statement, Prof. Joewaren Sulima, SEC training officer said the activity aims to make the editorial staff, school paper advisers and teachers from grade school to college departments become competent and responsible campus journalists--from news data gathering, writing, to releasing of school paper on time.

Further, Sulima said pupils and students would be able to fully understand their role and responsibility in campus journalism as a reliable media in school.

The school’s training officer also said students and teachers would be able to enhance and refresh their writing ability through the workshop, as well as to improve the quality of the campus paper based on the new trends and update of journalism.
