Year 6 excursion - Making the News

Last Thursday, Year 6 went of an excursion as part of their IPC topic, Making the News.  We visited two of the major news reporting organisations in Slovenia, POP TV and DELO.  
 
At POP TV, students went behind the scenes, exploring the 24 news studio, posing as news anchor men and women, and they even got to try out the professional video cameras.  We also saw the wardrobe section where the presenters get prepared every day, apparently, they never wear the same clothes twice (or at least not without letting everyone in the make-up department know about it!) We also saw the main television studio, where several stages were being constructed for upcoming feature programs of the station. Did you know it takes up to 3 months to construct the more elaborate stage sets? 
 
Next, we went to the DELO printing house, where DELO and Slovenska Novice are published daily, amongst other periodical newspapers. Here the students marvelled at the speed of the printing press, which runs at 40-50 km/h  at full speed.  We  were astounded to see the huge rolls of recycled paper they had in the paper storage which they printed the news onto, one roll we saw was 25 km in length and weighed one tonne!  We also learned how they print the newspapers, and witnessed how they carry out quality control.  
 
Finally, we went to the editorial office of DELO, and had an insightful Q&A session with one of the senior news reporters at the newspaper.  
 
Overall, the students were very impressed with the trip, and they brought home a lot of insight about the news industry.
