The Namibia Media Holdings (NMH) youth brand My Zone hosted its fourth media camp in Windhoek earlier this year. Seven schools from Walvis Bay and Swakopmund attended the camp, which included Walvis Bay Private High School, The Dolphin Schools, Kuisebmond Secondary School, Duinesig Combined School, Westside High School, Namib High School and Pro-Ed Academy. The camp forms part of the NMH school newspaper project which was started in 2015, to give the opportunity to various schools across the country to print their own eight page newspaper. The learners received training on media ethics, basics of writing an article, photojournalism, multimedia and online journalism, as well as training on the elements of design. They also had a chance to sit down with the CEO of NMH, Albe Botha, general manager of Publications, Arrie Hougaard, the news editor of the Republikein, Ronelle Rademeyer, the editor of the Namibian Sun, Festus Nakatana, the editor of the Allgemeine Zeitung, Frank Steffan and Willie Olivier, founder of the Namibian Sun newspaper.

Vendjizuva Kamatuka and Sarah Weyulu from Duinesig Combined School attended the camp, and dreceived their My Zone Editorial badges. This is the second year that Duinesig is part of the NMH newspaper project and is looking forward to many more. Their second edition will be available on 21 July 2019.
