Congratulations to RB6 and PJ6 students who ran the DFEi radio station, The Wave earlier this week. What an array of programmes ranging from sports, current affairs to music programmes "as gaelige". Students managed all aspects of the radio operation. A wonderful learning opportunity. A big thank you to their teacher Adrian Smyth for all his hard work. Read on, a note from Adrian
Many thanks for all your efforts with The Wave 2017, it was a great success. We broke some records this year: we had our longest ever daily programme (Wave Breakfast, 3 x 3 hours); our most prolific news output (3 x 4 daily bulletins); our highest-hitting sports show with big-name guests including Stephanie Roche and Bernard Jackman. In addition, we covered the local arts scene on DL Drama; and we had live music with Hudson Taylor. We also upped our Twitter followers by 100% on last year! All-in-all, a fantastic achievement. Take a bow!
