Wicor Primary School purchased a radio station from Anderton Tiger in December 2009. It was bought to enhance and enrich our learning curriculum at the school, and provide additional ways for pupils to share their learning and achievements via an inspirational and motivational learning tool.
The school currently broadcasts once a week, on a Friday straight after lunch. The current Radio Team consists of pupils from Years 5 & 6, supported by members of staff.
Each broadcast lasts between 10 and 20 minutes and includes birthdays for the week, facts, jokes, interviews, poetry, competitions and music, to name a few.
The whole school can tune into each broadcast via the classroom computers and we are keen to be able to broadcast to parents in the future.
Every child in the school is able to come onto the radio, and be part of a show, from Year R to Year 6.
