On Friday, Oct. 26, Carlmont journalism students traveled to a high school journalism boot camp hosted by the San Francisco Peninsula Press Club at the College of San Mateo.

Student newspaper writers from Aragon, Carlmont, Gunn, Eastside Prep, Junipero Serra, Notre Dame, San Mateo, and Sequoia high schools attended this boot camp. The camp included a student panel with editors from several of the high school newspapers, as well as opportunities to attend separate classes.

The student panel allowed editors from a few of the high school’s represented to answer questions presented by the journalism students and their teachers. The questions varied from: “What is the most controversial story you’ve covered?” to “What was your favorite story you’ve published?”

Several Carlmont journalism students enjoyed the boot camp and the classes it included. Karissa Tom, who attended the News Photography class and the Headline Writing class, said that “the field trip was interesting” and she would “definitely go on the field trip again.” She also said, “It helped with my journalism skills.”

Jacob Rudger, campus editor, explained that “the trip benefited everyone involved. The students gained knowledge from the presenters, and the presenters were able to learn from the students as well.”

This is not the first year that Carlmont participated in this boot camp, and possibly not the last.
