IN SCHOOLS and colleges, students are taught to read books and to acquire knowledge from the works of great authors. But mere reading of books is not sufficient for education. So the students are also taught how to write and express their own ideas in a good form and in different languages. With this aim in view school and college magazines are published. They contain a collection of articles, poems, stories and plays. They are written mainly by the students and sometimes by teachers and past pupils. In fact, young talent finds its first exposure through this medium. Magazines are generally published annually.
For the management of the school and college magazine, an Editorial Board is formed comprising some teachers and students. The editor is very often a senior member of the school/college. He/she is assisted by good and intelligent students of the higher classes. The students send their articles to the editor or any member of the editorial board. Then a selection is made and the best articles are published in the magazine with necessary addition and changes.
Besides literary and scientific articles, the school and college magazines contain information of the work done by students in different spheres. The magazine records the achievements of students and congratulates them for their hard work. They also contain information regarding the games and sports organised by the school/college. Sometimes, group photographs of the students and the staff are published. Thus, the school and college magazines highlight important activities of the school/college.
School and college magazines are useful in many ways. They have a great educative value. They encourage the students to think and write. So they develop their writing skills and talent. They also develop their power of thinking and strengthen their imagination. In this way the general knowledge of the students increases and they acquire the habit of reading and writing. School and college magazines also teach the students the value of co-operation and encourage healthy competition. They are a source of self-help and self-confidence for students.
Students find real joy when they see their names published in the school and college magazines, respectively. Besides, school and college magazines are interesting for the ex-students of the school. They read articles and their memory of the past days becomes fresh again. These magazines are a means of bringing the ex-students and all the members of the school in touch with one another.
