Visit to Chapel FM in Leeds
This term we took six of our year 9 First Story students to Chapel fm in Leeds.
We were invited to be part of their 'Writing on Air, Broadcast Literature Festival'. This is the second year we have attended this event.
Our students, Diana, Aaliyah, Rafeha, Haroon, Haroon and Sarah read work live on air that they have produced this year whilst working with our First Story writer in residence, Amanda Whittington. The pieces were a mixture of prose and poetry and covered many different subjects. The students also talked in length about how important First Story was to them and the opportunities it has opened up.
Andy Hill, the Regional Area Manger from First Story said "I just wanted to say what an utter pleasure it was to spend the morning with you yesterday, I was in awe of how your young writer’s handled the challenge and embraced the whole experience."
