Educator in Charge: Mrs Randall-Taylor
Every Tuesday afternoon a dedicated group of learners hops onto a bus directly after school and heads for the Radio Veritas Recording Studio in Edenvale to tape our one hour talk show called “The Pulse”. They are exposed to the inner workings of a real functioning radio station and learn many skills along the way. Radio Veritas is a Catholic Radio Station that airs on 576AM and can also be found on the Dstv music channel 870 or streamed directly from the website. Each member has a segment which they must prepare for the week’s theme which includes PRO for Sacred Heart College, reflections and prayers. Each segment is open for discussion among the crew and as a result we often have interesting discussions and debates on air. We play 3-4 songs each show that are chosen by the learners and discuss the different genres we encounter. “The Pulse” is an opportunity for learners to engage in intelligent discussion and learn about topics which they would not usually encounter. It also helps them to build their confidence and skills for public speaking and to interact with learners from different grade and with different views.
