VCAL students from the Greta Road campus and also from the Chisholm Street campus are learning the ropes at local community radio station 101.3 Oak FM.
Each week, students from Greta Road have been attending Oak FM to host their own segments, discussing topics that are important to them and based around their interests, as well as picking out their own music for the segments- you might be surprised, there’s a few classics in there! One of the students from Caroline’s class in Chisholm Street, Caleb, hosted his own segment to promote their fundraiser Sausage Sizzle coming up on the 19th November for Motor Neurone Disease.
