The inaugural broadcast on Radio Orchids consisted of a weather report followed by a few minutes of discussion on the background of World Radio Day (Feb 14) and the history of radio. The in-house school radio – at its campus program’s objective was to give the students a platform to hone their public speaking skills (Public Speaking is part of OIS’ curriculum), embrace the spotlight, and have an opportunity for students to have fun with their creative side.
Yashika from grade 8th, and Divyanshi from grade 6th of Orchids The International School, South City 1, Gurugram, were the Radio Jockeys (RJs) who hosted the program. An audio drama titled “Let’s Know About Financial Literacy at Orchids” was played during ‘Radio Orchids’. Both RJs wrapped up the program with some soothing music and a creative bye-bye note. “We had a really infotainment-focused experience. Before hosting this program, we received instruction from professionals and teachers in the classroom on how to script and present the program,” Said Yashika and Divyanshi.
“The primary goal of this radio broadcast on World Radio Day was for Orchids to introduce its students to a variety of genres so they can develop their skills and better themselves. Our children did a fantastic job during the entire program and displayed their talent. OIS is using its campus radio program to record drama, poems, and songs written by students in an effort to bring out their hidden abilities,” said Dr. Nidhi Duggal, Principal.
