Radio KPS began its trial broadcast at the end of 2016, with a goal of streaming online 24/7, as well as on a low-powered FM transmission in the Beach Haven area on 106.9 later in 2017. The station was initiated by teacher Rob Ashcroft.
Radio KPS is for the purpose of giving our students an authentic audience for much of their learning. As well as playing entertaining music, it is hoped that student-produced recordings will make up some of the regular content.
Examples of student content include:
Voicing their own fiction or non-fiction writing
School news or ‘weekly round-up’
Student-written Radio advertisements for senior market day
(and other upcoming events such as End of Summertime Festival)
Teams of students responsible for ‘producing’ a variety of programmes
