Co-ordinator: Mr N Naidoo
Talex is the school’s quarterly magazine. The entire publication is created by students themselves under the watchful eye of Mr Naidoo, the HOD of English. The publication is printed and distributed to classes.
Within the organisation, students can take on many unique and fulfilling roles. There is a team of dedicated reporters who carefully document school events, an editorial team and also a design/layout team.
Talex regularly addresses issues of concern to students, sometimes venturing into controversial subjects. Talex has been an engine of critical analysis of numerous aspects of the school, new trends at school and has even addressed matters of senior leadership.
Talex also archives photos from around the school on their Facebook page (www.facebook.com/talex.alex) which gives Old Alexandrians a glimpse into the world they were once an integral part of.
The Talex brand existed long before modern technology like computers existed. In the early 90s however, Talex seized production. It was only in 2010 that the publication would be restarted by Mr N Naidoo with the help of Sean Premananthan and Sduduzo Mkhize who were both matrics of that year. After their departure, new students joined in to fill the void and, with their innovative spirit, especially from one Thishin Moodley (matric 2013), Talex evolved from a mere newsletter to a magazine with an online presence and a strong Facebook-driven connection with students, teachers and Old Alexandrians.
Students can receive school awards for exceptional service to the Talex publication.
