Imagine a creative, engaging and exciting medium that would allow your students to express their views, engage in lively debates and explore their creativity whilst simultaneously developing their speaking and listening skills, building confidence and raising literacy standards. You just imagined a School Radio station.
A School Radio station setup and run by your students, for your school, could achieve all of this and more.
Whether it is music shows, current affairs programs, coverage of events or radio drama, radio provides a uniquely accessible and engaging medium which not only builds self-esteem for the presenters but also helps to enhance the community atmosphere within
Your students will also gain 'real world' vocational skills, as they will be using the same tools and equipment as the professional radio stations.
Inclusion - A School Radio station run by the students and for the students will help build an inclusive atmosphere in the school.
Building Confidence - Most people find talking to 'mic' in a closed room far less intimidating than appearing on camera or on stage. School Radio allows your students to express their views and build confidence.
Develop Speaking & Listening Skills - Radio is all about speaking and listening. Whether you are presenting or just enjoying to a show, these vital skills are fundamental to School Radio.
Literacy - The first time a student looks at the 'mic' and wonders what to say, they realise they need to write scripts and prepare their links. Extend this preparation for talk shows, radio drama or telephone interviews and it is clear that writing plays a big role in School Radio.
Giving Students A Voice - School Radio offers a platform for your students to discuss the issues that matter to them in a non-confrontational format.
