AFTER visiting The Fiji Times newsroom in Suva, a group of children from the Yarawa Methodist Circuit Sunday School will now have a fair idea of how a daily newspaper is produced.

More than 50 children and parents from the Yarawa Methodist Circuit from around Suva and as far as Vanua Levu and Taveuni toured The Fiji Times newsroom on Saturday as part of the activities planned for their rally.

Speaking on behalf of the group, Isimeli Bola said they were honoured to be given the opportunity to visit the newsroom.

Mr Bola said The Fiji Times was a well-known newspaper in the country and their children were fortunate to have gained an insight about the day-to-day operation of the newspaper.

“Most of these students read The Fiji Times and to actually witness what happens in this building is an experience they will take back with them,” he said.

Mr Bola said the trip to the newspaper’s newsroom was part of their excursion to several landmarks in Suva.

“Most of these kids come all the way from the North and West and they were going to visit some well-known places here in the capital,” Mr Bola said.

“The Fiji Times is one of the iconic places in Fiji. It is well-known throughout Fiji, not only in terms of the number of years it has been in Fiji, but in terms of history of The Fiji Times itself.

“They had their rally and we are fortunate enough to be one of the lucky ones to have entered the building and visit the newsroom and see how things work out here,” he added.
