15 Marist students attended the media training held at the Eiffel Hotel in Ranong. With the help of Thai PBS News and the Foundation for Child Development, they learnt how to be creative in presenting the concerns and hopes of children in the media.
They were joined by students and teachers from Mae Sot. Students and staff worked together to create their own unique news video. The students particularly enjoyed learning photography.
Two MMR teachers, Christine and Ped, assisted the students during the training. Christine explained, “Every photo has a reason. If you see a child crying, that has a lot of meaning.”
MMR students will now create their own news story about their school, and will present this in the next training sessions later this month in Bangkok.
