On the 27th of March, Gavin Thompson, Assistant Editor of the Business section of the Bristol Post, visited St.Brendan’s and delivered a talk on journalism.
Thompson talked about what being a journalist meant and how this has changed over the years. He gave us insight into his career and spoke of how he got into journalism, as well as what a ‘’normal day’’ as an editor entails. During this time we got to learn about the skills and qualities a journalist needs to possess.
The talk was very insightful and helped all of the students gain a better understanding of the industry. (Article by student Samantha Anibigno)
