Bakurat Jabal Sihyon (The First Fruits of Mount Zion) was an occasional school magazine (published three times a year), which included articles on social affairs, scientific publications, humor, and literary novels, as well as news items. Professor Frank Ales, the principal of the English Zion school (known as the Bishop Gobat School), was the owner of the magazine. The magazine began publishing in 1905 in handwritten form; its editor was Professor Tawfiq Zabiq, and then Professor Elias Marmoura took over in 1907. When it was produced only in a handwritten version, the magazine was issued 10 times a year. Students would compile the articles in a book presented as a gift to the school at the end of each semester. The magazine ceased publication with the outbreak of the First World War, and resumed its activities when the war ended. The magazine was then printed, and sixth graders began editing it. The magazine’s editor-in-chief was Professor 'Isaf Wahba.
