Kidz Hour Local Schools
Show TimesMonday - 11:15 am - 12:00 pm
This delightful program provides a platform for students from local primary schools to talk on radio about their school activities, events and issues. The primary schools currently participating in the program is Frankston Heights, Kingsley Park, Mornington Park, Rosebud, Somerville Rise and Woodlands. The program helps children gain confidence and encourages them to have a view on certain topics which inturn empowers them. Children who participate in the project learn how to operate the panel, write their own radio programs which they broadcast ‘live to air’ and exposes them to a fully operational and functional community radio station. Since Kidz Hour went to air over 10 years ago (starting in the old Moorooduc studios), approximately 200 students a year participate in the program. Throughout the year, Principal Forums are put to air where Principals from each participating Primary School discuss school issues and education.
