In the present age every big school has its own magazine. It is organised by the teachers and pupils of the school. Generally students of all classes are invited to contribute their worth as contributions to the Editor.
The difference between a school magazine and other monthly magazines available in the market is that the former is meant for the students of the particular school or educational institution. The Editor is mostly a teacher who is assisted by capable students or a committee of students.
It is difficult to manage a magazine in small schools because of the cost it involves. When contributions are made by students of different classes a committee is made to decide which articles are to be printed with additions and alterations. The cost of magazine is met from the fees collected from the students as magazine fees. More any deficit it is made up from the school funds.
Generally the best articles are selected and corrected before being sent to the press for publication. The usefulness of magazine lies in the fact that it develops the habit of writing and enthuses students to write original essays. It develops the originality of thinking in students. One cannot write something without a clear judgment, imagination and good knowledge of the thing.
School magazine provides a scope for writing independently. Generally students have a fascination for cramming for securing good marks in the examination. But the school magazine facilitates them to make their articles as good as possible.
This magazine serves as an inspiration for students who have some ideas and thoughts but do not have an opportunity to express. Its educational value is high and the artists, poets; writers owe a lot to the school magazines since school magazine lays -his foundation of building artists. The school magazine can otherwise be called a training ground for good writers.
Knowledge comes from books whereas wisdom stems from experience. Unless one reads numerous books other than text books, he cannot cultivate the habit of writing. The school magazine establishes a link between the new and the old students. The copy of a magazine serves as a reminiscence of school days for old boys reading previously in the institution. The sight of a magazine reminds the old boys of their sweet bygone school days. The school magazine instills a sort of competitive spirit in students through articles on various topics.
The articles given by teachers provide some important and useful information to students. The articles are of enormous practical utility to them. The writings of teachers are highly inspiring for new writers who don't know the art of writing. Generally the magazine of our school comes and in the month of January. The editor selects only the most useful articles.
The name of the magazine of our school is "Saptarshi". The writers of the best articles are awarded. We, the students of the High School derive great benefit out of the valuable writings of the teachers.
