Jockey Club Active School Little Reporters Programme

Jockey Club Active School Little Reporters Programme

Since 2016, the “Jockey Club Active School School Little Reporters Programme” has been cooperating with Sports Road to provide news theories and interview techniques of sports reporters for primary and secondary school students, and has been contacted 33 primary and secondary schools in 3 years, with more than 660 primary and secondary school students participating in the programme.

The programme is aimed at teaching students from three aspects of sports news writing, sports photography and sports shooting, as well as providing them with opportunities to interview active and retired Hong Kong athletes and Hong Kong sports reporters, so that they can learn the skills of communication with the outside world, the basic shooting techniques, and the perseverance and Hong Kong spirit from the Hong Kong athletes.

In addition, Sports Road have invited CANON to become a cooperative unit to provide and explain equipment as well as print out photos on site for students to submit reports at class 2.

Internship opportunities will be provided for students to conduct interviews in large events as sports reporters and experience how to cover sports events in person.
