On air since May 2nd, 2016, Repórter do Solar is the new digital newspaper of Solar Meninos de Luz.
With content made exclusively by the children and with the participation of our teaching assistants and teachers, the project is published bimonthly and material is prepared in weekly journalism workshops.
The project idea came from writing teachers Cybelle de Abreu and Helena Faria, aiming to provide to students an opportunity to use knowledge acquired in class and at the same time provide to community a free and interesting content.
