What was life like for a war reporter in World War II?
Primary school pupils (from age 9-12 years old) are invited to go on a learning journey during SmartKids Asia that will cover history, English, photography and much more.
To commemorate the 75th anniversary of the fall of Singapore, young explorers will step into the shoes of a war reporter at The Straits Times Young Storymakers Camp, created by the team behind the broadsheet's award-winning weekly magazine, Little Red Dot.
3-Day Programme highlights:
* Gain basic news reporting techniques taught by The Straits Times journalists;
* Learn what it takes to create engaging photographs;
* Experience the trauma and perils of war from the Changi War Trail;
* Understand war and occupation from the thoughtfully-designed galleries, engaging exhibits and personal artefacts at The Changi Museum and The Johore Battery;
* Capture unique photos as your child explores the underground bunkers at The Battlebox;
* Create a unique front page for their own newspaper in The Straits Times Newslab at SmartKids Asia; and
* Boost confidence and communication skills through hands-on engagement.
