Winterfold was alive with the sound of music on Friday 14th June with the launch of our very own radio station.
Ed James from Heart FM took time out from his busy broadcasting schedule (Ed and Gemma host the 4.00pm til 7.00pm slot on Heart) to help the pupils with their first podcast which was also broadcast into the school playground where the music loving youngsters were listening and dancing below.
After the official ribbon cutting ceremony and champagne toast, four talented Year 7 pupils – Harvey, Will, Louis and Isla interviewed Ed, prompting interesting and fun answers which engaged the audience.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable afternoon, with the children dancing to everything from She Sells Sanctuary by The Cult, David Bowie’s Heroes to Can’t Stop the Feeling by Justin Timberlake, culminating with a giant conga around the playground.
Head of Music, Jerry Price said “We’re so excited about the future of Radio Winterfold. We plan to stream live very soon to allow the children to develop amazing broadcast skills for the modern world.”
