For those of you visiting us for the first time, welcome to The Bounce.
In the weeks ahead we will be posting a range of news stories put together by students enrolled in Murdoch University’s journalism program. The material will have been sub-edited by experienced staff employed to teach in the program.
There’ll be photographs and multimedia attached to all of the material that we produce in order to add a new dimension to the stories we are telling.
We hope that you’ll sign up to our email notifications and join our Facebook page.
The name for our new site came from entries submitted by students enrolled in the program. Shannon Beattie’s entry The Bounce, was declared the winner.
In modern day journalism speak..to “bounce” someone means to push someone for an interview who is refusing to give one..but their side of the issue is vital for the story to be told.
We hope you enjoy the material that we post in the weeks ahead.
