Through a joint venture between the SHS Irish Depart. and Down District Council’s Irish Language Unit and Irish language community radio station – Raidió Fáilte 107.1fm – AS students from both the Sacred Heart Grammar School and Abbey Grammar, Newry were given the opportunity to develop their skills in radio production and make their own Irish language radio programme. The three workshops offered students a chance to develop skills in research, script-writing, interview skills and technical experience in recording sound.
The project is hoped to be one of many involving a number of schools in the district over coming years. The Irish Depart. in Sacred Heart is proud to have been part of this pilot programme.
The radio programme will be broadcast on Wed. 29th Nov. on Raidió Fáilte 107.1fm and will be available as a podcast on www.raidiofailte.com the following day.
Congratulations to all our students who were part of this project. Maith sibh!
