This week has represented the beginning of a very exciting and inspirational journey. On Monday, Russell Prue of Anderton Tiger Radio returned to Westwood School to professionally install our brand new radio station in our library room.
Funded by the Big Lottery Fund, we are extremely lucky to have studio standard radio equipment that will allow us to broadcast to the world online from our own school! Also, with so many opportunities for developing confidence, speaking and listening skills and resilience, the impact on learning will be huge. 17 very keen and enthusiastic broadcasters, all raring to go, then spent a day training with Russell so that they are able to both run and present their own shows on a weekly basis. With Friday’s show already planned, we will be broadcasting LIVE to the school at 2.30pm tomorrow and a recording will be available to listen again by tomorrow evening. Do please listen and we hope you enjoy it. We also have a brand new website for our Radio Station – radio.westwoodwithiford.org where you can find our details for how you can contact the show.
Here are some photos of us getting very involved and learning our new skills:
