March 31 2003

A group of students of Wurood Private School in Sana'a visited the Yemen Times Tuesday.
The group was given an introduction and background on the newspaper's history, mission and other issues and met with Editor-in-Chief Walid Al-Saqqaf. They toured the newspaper's premises and also met with heads of the different departments, who explained their duties and operations.
The school's headmaster Faisal Hassan Abu Ayyash said that the group was motivated to visit Yemen Times because they knew it as the most popular English-language newspaper in Yemen.
“We felt that a visit to Yemen Times would give our students an insight into true professional journalism.”
Wurood School is a private institute that provides education for primary, preparatory, and secondary students.
The school, which was established in 2002, has an English-language department as well.
