How do I write a review about going to a concert? What should I pay attention to when I travel as a journalist? How do I combine photography, photography and note-taking? The students asked the editors and producers of this newspaper and many other interesting questions.

Come on, come on and welcome to the Jungfrau Zeitung editorial team! This platform received an exciting visit on Tuesday: four students from Thun High School. Occasion: Project Week. Task: write a review about Sam’s concert. Rasmus Nissen, music teacher and project manager for this unique week, has requested a tour and introduction – through JZ headquarters and in the daily press.
And it’s Tuesday: Team JZ introduces curious youngsters to their diverse journalistic career. From the organization, to the news flow, to the jigsaw and electronic paper, to the work to produce it all. It gave insight into the daily life of a journalist who gives interviews, photos, films and notes on site – and handles all of this in a complete package. Producer that cuts large video contributions, creates animated advertisements, writes concepts and produces pages with creative requirements from e-paper.

“It was exciting to see that all the Jungfrau Zeitung staff have to do more or less of everything,” said teacher Rasmus Nissen, summarizing his impressions after the morning. He feels that it is very important for students to know what media is out there, what impact they have on themselves or society and for young people to know how to deal with it.

Student Julian Wenger also enjoyed the introduction to journalism, especially regarding the assignment. “I’m glad we weren’t sent to the concert blindly and don’t know what to expect. We have now made good preparations.” His classmate Allen Deborah Walter agrees: “Now we know what to look at, and we’ve been given tips on how to write and how to best address people.”
