Airways Buzz News Letter Launched in Accra
A group of children of the University of Ghana Airways Residence, Kissieman, have birthed a journal named Airways Buzz News Letter. The idea which was conceived during the heat of the Covid-19 lockdown period when schools were closed down and children were forced to remain at home, was brought to fruition on 31st August 2020.
During the launch of the four-page newsletter, the President of the Airways Residents Association, Dr. Sarah Dorgbadzi in a short address, lauded the children for the initiative. She also commended parents and children in the neighborhood for supporting the idea by supplying the needed information for the newsletter.
The Deputy Head (JHS), University of Ghana Basic School, Mrs. Christina Armah who is also a resident of the Airways Residence, launched the newsletter. In brief remarks, Mrs. Armah recounted how she observed the children hustling and bustling around seeking information, sitting behind their computers, setting and finally publishing the newsletter. She disclosed that the newsletter was easy to read, entertaining, informative and educative.
According to Mrs. Armah, the first edition captures quotes, news within the neighbourhood, health, short story, puzzle, announcement and adult of the month. She encouraged the neighbours to motivate the children as this could usher them into a bigger dream.
Members of the community came out in their numbers to support the launch. The editorial team behind the Airways Buzz News Letter includes Ms. Zoewin Abariga, aged 12; Ms. Jeannette Atuguba, aged 12; Ms. Dedeaux Atuguba, aged 8; Ms. Aba Folson, aged 14; Ms. Esi Folson, aged 12 and Ms. Safo Ossei, aged 14.
