Journalists sharing experiences with students

Ricardo with the students 5

Friday 27th of November was a ‘normal’ day at the school, meaning a working or studying day after the three ‘Water Festival’ holidays – even if the government suspended the 2015 Boats’ Festival (as its name should be translated in English), the holidays on the calendar were honored around the country.

But for the students of social communication in Don Bosco Hatrans, this Friday was special. A Spaniard young man came to visit them. His name’s Ricardo Pérez-Solero Llosa and he is the correspondent in Cambodia for the EFE Agency News. He talked to the senior students of journalism about the life of a reporter, as well as the meaning of a news agency and its importance to the global news media.

The social communication and journalism section of the Don Bosco Hatrans Technical School was created in 2011 by Fr. Ly Samnang (Albeiro Rodas) to train young people as reporters and media producers for the Cambodian development. It is also an extension of the social communication program offered in Don Bosco Sihanoukville. Since 2007 more than 200 young men and women, coming from poor communities and rural areas, got the title of Associate Degree in social communication and journalism and are working in TV channels, Radio stations, newspapers and NGOs.

National and foreign journalists are invited to share their experiences and workshops with the young students in order to fill their dreams as future reporters or experts in communication for Cambodia. If you are a journalist in Cambodia and would like to meet the students of Don Bosco and share your perspectives of how new generations of reporters should be, welcome to visit us.
