Exposing children to different professions
By Kehinde Oluwatayo
Exposing children to different professions early in life has been described as a secret that will help them to decide on what profession to choose and be the best in it.
This was the submission of Mr Ebenezer Kayode, the Chief Press Club Facilitator of Waterspring International School, Ijapo, Akure when he led the members of the press club of the school to The Hope newspaper on excursion, yesterday.
Kayode who doubles as the Event Coordinator of the school said a visit like this will stir up the interest of a child to decide on a particular profession, adding that when such interest is fanned, it will bring out the best in him.
According to him, the children needed to be exposed to news gathering and newspaper production techniques.
“A visit like this will stir up interest in different professions be it journalism, medicine, law and so on .Deciding early and working on it will make them to be the best in life.
“They are members of the school’s Press Club and they have been exposed to writing report, gathering information and turning it to news and even casting news, so our visit is to concretise what they have been doing”, he stressed.
Kayode advised parents to invest in the education of their children by putting them in good schools where quality education is being given, adding that nothing is too much to be spent on them.
He described the visit as a fruitful one, adding that the children are now exposed to newspaper production.
One of the pupils, Ayomide Tope- Dada who said he now knows newspaper production said he would like to work in a newspaper organisation in the future.
Another pupil, Odo Chiamaka also said she has known how to produce a newspaper but does not like to work in a newspaper organisation.
