Live Wires fizzes, pops and crackles with youthful talent and enthusiasm. Students present their own variety programmes live from the classroom. Subject matter is as diverse as the imagination allows – stories, plays and interviews jostle with match reports from school sports events, kapa haka and choir performances, science, music, maths, even the visual arts (if it can be talked about, it’s a goer). It’s mostly live, but students also act as roving reporters, collecting pre-recorded material from across the school leading up to the broadcast date.
We are primary school students, helped by our teachers and Arrow FM to create regular programmes about school life and the many things we are interested in. At the moment, five schools are involved, and so we get to go live on air once every five weeks. We are gaining presentation and production skills, and showcasing talents we already have. We also look for stories and achievements from other students at the school, acting as their on-air representatives.
