Broadcasting Challenge

Interested in Developing your Broadcasting Skills?

Over the past few months, the School of Jock has worked with 3 JCSP Library Project schools in Tallaght, Dublin. The aim of the project was to establish a Radio Station which would be based in the ‘Press Room’ of St. Aidan’s Community School and which would be available for use by students and staff from all 3 participating schools. The initiative was sponsored by the JCSP Library Project, South Dublin County Council Arts Office, Poetry Ireland and the three school libraries: – St. Aidan’s Community School, Killinarden Community School and Mount Seskin Community College.

Forty students in total were trained in the practical radio production skills and in the basics of good broadcasting, leaving behind well trained and equipped minds to create and conquer the world of broadcasting.

The students have gone on to produce a number of interviews on topics ranging from Author Interviews, Student Voice, Bullying, Working in Teams, Erasmus Projects, Drama, Sport and Climate Change.
