A week of great school radio

This week we have had a tremendous amount of fun at Westwood Radio. Beginning with Mother’s Monday and a very special Breakfast Show – our current radio club’s first live show – as you will see from the previous post.

We have also welcomed back Emma Hodgkins of the Helen Hodgkins Trust to Westwood school to be interviewed for this week’s radio show about her work with providing clean water for families in Ghana through her charity. You can find out all about her brilliant work on http://www.helenhodgkinstrust.org/ Do please check out her blog and have a listen to her fascinating interview here:

On broadcast day, which as you will know is every Friday at 2.30pm, we welcomed Conservative MP for Chippenham and local area Michelle Donelan to our school. Michelle very kindly took time out of her busy schedule to  join us in the Westwood Radio studio to be interviewed by Oscar, Lily and Finn who had all prepared their own superb questions to gain an insight into the life and work of an MP. Michelle was brilliant and gave us a fantastic interview. Here is the full interview:

With so much fantastic pre-recorded content, as well as a raft of original, professionally scripted material by the children, this was a very special show to end our term. It also proved to be our longest, even with Take That’s Greatest Day removed for copyright purposes.

Radio Club will be broadcasting on Monday 3rd April at 8.30am, so please do join us and get in touch with the show whilst we are on air by emailing radio@westwoodwithiford.org or texting 078600 17404, which will also come through as an email. I am so proud of our achievements again this term, Westwood Radio is going from strength to strength!
