Manama: Students from the Indian School Bahrain are now going to step into the world of news creation. The Campus World project, launched by Gulf Madhyamam, is paving the way by introducing students to the process of identifying news stories and preparing them.
Students would have a lot to say about their school and country. Campus World attempts to transcribe those stories and curiosities. Student participation is ensured at all stages of newspaper design, from finding to creating it.
