Every progressive school has their own school magazine. Have you ever wondered why? Because this voluble school publication has multifarious benefits. The most important one being inculcating the habit of reading in the children. Once the students start flipping through the pages of their own school magazine, they see the contributions made by other students, who are either their friends or seniors or juniors. This definitely gives a boost to the students to contribute to their school magazine and see their name or picture flashing in it. If not, they might just enjoy reading it for the time being and absorb the knowledge imparted through the magazine.
Students can submit their informative articles, express their opinions or get their creative work featured. Reading the school magazines every month will motivate the young learners to brainstorm ideas on what can they contribute to the publication. This sharpens their thinking skills and gives them the necessary confidence to express better. So, looking at the bigger picture, the school magazine also helps in minimising the children’s digital addiction and makes them utilize their time at hand, more constructively. Who knows, it may inspire them to develop new hobbies too.
We, at Udgam School, publish Udgam Matters every month. Hard copies are sent to the students in the first week of every month. It’s available online too. We encourage students, teachers and parents to contribute regularly and give feedback that will help us in the planning the next issues.
If you have missed the last month’s issue, look out for the upcoming ones. Some exciting features are coming your way that will surely interest you.
