School’s fun on radio waves
PRIMARY school children enjoyed a visit from Silk FM.
DJ Dane and the station’s mascot Cheshire Cat dropped into St Alban’s Primary School after it was made ‘school of the week’.
The visitors got involved in one the school assemblies and were entertained by a variety of songs.
Five year six children, including the head boy and head girl, were interviewed, while the school’s ‘pet vet’, Elizabeth Summers, told Dane how she taught the Reception Class how to look after its two pet guinea pigs, Racer and Sausage.
Other pupils, Louis Fox and Joss Abbs Brown, read out poems written for the school’s project about homelessness.
Joss, St Alban’s news reporter, said: “It was an amazing morning. We welcomed our visitors with one of our brilliant assemblies. To top off the whole event, as we sang our hearts out, Cheshire Cat from Silk FM danced along with us.
“Dara Fowler and Amy Marsh told Silk FM all about their important role as head boy and head girl and about St Alban’s sporting achievements. I explained to Silk FM how my poem about homelessness was published by Macclesfield Express a few months ago.
“Elizabeth Summers explained how she is responsible for looking after Racer and Sausage at weekends and during the school holidays. Dane and Cheshire Cat made our morning. Cheshire Cat told us we were the best school of the week.”
