ENTERPRISING pupils at Clevedon School have set up and began broadcasting from their very own radio station.
Entitled Black and Gold, the online station will air every breaktime and lunchtime during school days and has a licence to play the latest music tracks.
Business teacher Justin Worland has been leading the project, which has attracted numerous students keen to either present or produce shows or promote the station.
As well as playing music, it will be used to talk about topical issues such as the peer listening scheme which is aimed at combating bullying and helping those youngsters who may be being bullied.
Business and enterprise subject coordinator Paul Skone said: “This is really great experience for pupils.
You may also want to watch:
“As it is internet-based, it can be picked up on iPads, phones and computers from anywhere.
“Soon we will have a link directly from the school’s website for people to listen in.”
