Meridian Secondary Media club is a close-knitted group of like-minded students who contribute daily to the school’s operation. Their presence is crucial as they supported the school in all her public addresses, visual and media needs.
Every school day begins with the Media Club students playing and broadcasting the National Anthem and the school song. Whenever there are prize presentations or competitions, the students will be there to capture the moment without fail. On every Friday, the students are called upon to support the school assemblies in the hall. The running of all major events in the school such as the Speech day, the cross-country race, National Day celebrations, Talent competitions and Graduation day will not be complete without the support of the Media club students. During these major events, students will be deployed to cover various duties such as phototaking, filming and managing the AVA system. The roles that they played are very crucial in ensuring that the programmes for these events can flow smoothly and according to plan. Students also learnt how to troubleshoot and apply critical-thinking skills while on duty when the need arises.
These real-life experiences offer students many excellent opportunities of practising their skills in using the audio system, photography, planning and storyboarding, operating the camera, video shooting and editing their film clips. Students are often deployed in pairs or groups and hence they also learnt the value of teamwork from all their various duties.
To further widen their horizon and perspective on photography and videography, trainings are provided to students by professionals and students go for photography field trips and competitions. Club members have the opportunity to participate in nationwide competitions such as Singapore Young Photographers Awards.
Overall Media Club provides a good platform for students to nurture their talents in photography, videography and audio visual aids. At the end of the four years programme, Media Club students will take away with them lifelong skills that will help them in their future endeavours.
