Three curious lads from ‘The Corner’ Youth Centre in Mornington enjoyed a tour of the RPP FM local radio station during the school holidays.
The young students, 12 year old Jekab from Mt Eliza Secondary College, 12 year old Julian from Woodleigh School and 14 year old Keiran from Naranga School were guided through the premises by Station Manager, Brendon Telfer.
Areas shown included the broadcasting studios, computer room, sound room and Performance Studio 3.
When asked what career path they would like to follow, Jekab replied he’d like to be a refrigeration mechanic whilst Julian and Kieran were not sure.
Youth workers Jackie and LA who accompanied the boys are hoping the ‘seed’ is planted for them to consider work experience at the station during the holidays.
The station offers exposure to radio through different communication mediums such as presenting and producing programs, reporting, technical producing and writing.
Jackie said the boys will share their experience with friends.
