Teachers put on notice
THREE Darwin school students may have found a way to become immune from the wrath of teachers.
Essington School media students Jake van Dam, 14, Chris Melkins, 14, and Chad Blenkinship, 15, are the Live Action Brothers and have found the power of the microphone on the school’s Wednesday slot between 4pm and 5pm on 91.5 Darwin FM.
The Year 9 students present four segments: Chris’s Grudge Grumble, What a Song, Chad’s Quiz Time,
I’m looking out for teachers doing anything they shouldn’t be doing
and the controversial ing the Teachers.
‘‘ I’m looking out for teachers doing anything they shouldn’t be doing,’’ Jake said.
‘‘One of the teachers was
Bust- wearing a bracelet,’’ he said. ‘‘One of them was out of uniform. They don’t want to mess with me.’’
Jake is hoping for a career in sports broadcasting — specialising in basketball or Aussie Rules.
He will attend senior college next year but hopes to keep up the show and score a slot at a larger local station.
In his Grudge Grumble, Chris grumbles about things he doesn’t like.
‘‘ Once there was piercings,’’ Jake said. ‘‘Then there was homework. All firstworld problems.’’
