A School Radio station run by the students and for the students will help build an inclusive atmosphere in the school. The FM station of Kalvi School is all about communication and running a radio which displays commitment and teamwork in order for it to be a success. Our systems are easy enough to use that all students, regardless of age or ability can get involved.
Building Confidence - Most people find talking to a 'mic' in a closed room far less intimidating than appearing on camera or on stage. This allows students to express their views and build their confidence whether it is discussing important issues or sharing ideas, radio gives your students a confident voice within your school.
Develop Speaking and Listening Skills - Radio is about speaking and listening. Whether you are presenting or just listening to a show, these vital skills are not only fundamental in radio but are essential for 'real world' skills
Improving Literacy - Seems strange to be talking about writing skills in radio but the first time a student looks at the 'mic' and then asks what they should say, they realize they need to write scripts and prepare between links. Extend this preparation for talk shows, radio drama or telephone interview.
This exposure not only helps in breaking the fetters of feeling shy but brings out the talents of our students that can lead to spotting out the RJs of the future.
