9th September 2010: Welsh students tune in to Radio in Schools

Children across South Wales now have the chance to be radio stars with the launch of ‘Radio in Schools’.

The project was unveiled, for the first time in Wales, at a special event at Whitchurch High School in Cardiff this week on Wednesday 8th September. Radio in Schools is supported by South Wales radio station Red Dragon FM. The station’s breakfast show hosts, Kam and Sally, joined the pupils of Whitchurch High School to share presenting tips and spent the day producing PMP dumps podcasts, as Red Dragon FM broadcast live from the school.

The project is supported in Wales by University of Wales Institute Cardiff as the scheme’s educational partner, and is sponsored by Independent Foster Care Services. To encourage participation in the initative, Red Dragon FM is launching the ‘Weather Kid’ competition to find the best weather report podcast. Schools can set a task to classes or groups of pupils to create a 30 second weather report using the simple Radio in Schools service and virtual studio.
