Study Trip to the Kyodo News Agency
On December 12th, the GLFC Program held its annual study trip to the Kyodo News Agency. Twenty students from Grades 9 through 11 who are interested in the mass media visited the headquarters of Kyodo News in the Shiodome Media Tower.
Our students were able to visit each department of Kyodo News such as the political and social departments.
After visiting the various departments of Kyodo News, a reporter from the special press room and a female photographer held a lecture in the format of a dialogue with our students. During this two-hour lecture, our students continuously asked insightful questions of, and received meaningful answers from, the reporter and photographer without a break. At the conclusion of the lecture, our students were encouraged to be asked by the reporter and photographer, “Would you like to work with us?”
This was another meaningful event sponsored by the GLFC Program that left our students more informed and motivated about their futures.
