Introduction: Nowadays many schools have their own magazines. The school magazine is usually published every three months or annually. Very few schools can publish it monthly. The school magazine mainly consists of the writings of school students. Its practice is generally limited to school students.
Description: The school magazine is the students’ own concern and is usually run by them. For better management, students take the help of their teachers. There is a committee of teachers and students. Typically, some teachers are editors, and one or two students from the top classes are chosen as sub-editors. Articles from teachers and students are invited. The students send their articles to the editor. The committee then selects the best articles. Selected articles are corrected by some teachers and resolve necessary changes to be sent to the press for print.
Each student receives a copy of the magazine and has to pay a subscription. The cost of printing is usually met by the students and teachers.
Usefulness: School magazines are very useful in many ways. They contain writings, pictures etc. of teachers and students. One is naturally happy to see his name in print. So they try to write poems, stories, essays, comics etc.
They read many new books to write good articles and this helps to increase their knowledge. With practice, their writing style and composition skills improve. To see their name in print, students try to do better in exams and win prizes in sports and other school activities. This inspires others. So, the school magazine has a highly educative value. It develops our thinking and writing power and motivates us to better work. Good articles and important information benefit not only the contributors but also the readers. Pupils learn the value of cooperatives and the mode of periodic conduct. Many great writers first practised writing in their school magazines.
Conclusion: It is desirable that each school should have its own magazine. In this respect, the teachers should motivate the students. 0 0 0
