Students take to the airwaves
Eleven King Harold Academy students are to collaborate with Loughton Youth Project in the New Year to create a fortnightly radio programme. 

In preparation, the Year 8 to Year 10 students visited The Space at Loughton Library to meet Nick Robinson to discuss the project and were thrown in at the deep end when Nick announced that they were going to do their first live radio broadcast that afternoon. 

The students quickly organised themselves into producers, technicians, researchers and hosts and with the help of Nick devised the 30-minute programme which included an interview with him about working in radio, a discussion about the concerns in the rise of diabetes and what they as young people need to be aware of.

The broadcast also featured a selection of music and a game which saw four of the students having to gurgle a tune and with the others having to guess the song.

The students have since broadcast another 30-minute programme which involved a discussion about 'What Christmas means to you?', an interview with one of LYP's technicians and Martin Scarth, chairman of the Board of Trustees.

Music teacher Rebecca Harvey said: "It was wonderful to see the reaction of the students change from being nervous to confidently speaking live on radio and despite being in different year groups they worked really well as a team.

"We all had a fantastic time and would like to thank Nick for this wonderful opportunity for our students. We’re looking forward to continuing with the project as a team."
