Welcome to our class page for 2019-20
Our class has really enjoyed the Kids' Own 'Virtually There' project this year. We have been working with artist John D'Arcy on lots of fantastic and unusual creative projects. These projects have included creating our own radio station, WECHO FM. During this project, we created our own radio personalities and radio shows. We also visited our local radio station LISBURN 98fm, where we got to 'take-over' their drive time show from 5pm to 6pm.
Our second project involved creating a pixelated virtual reality environment. This was fantastic fun and the results were amazing!

Our Poem for World Book day was 'On the Ning Nang Nong' by Spike Milligan.
WECHO FM, St Colman's no.1 radio station, took over Lisburn radio 98.8FM as part of World Radio Day on Wednesday 14th February. Top radio presenter Michael Clarke, showed the children around the radio station and answered all their questions. He then interviewed each child and asked them about our radio station. During the drive time hour, 5pm to 6pm, Michael allowed us to choose the songs and play content from our own radio shows. It was great fun and a superb experience for the children.
WECHO FM is a project that the children have been working on in class throughout the 1st and 2nd term, with artist John D'arcy. This is part of the Kids' Own, Virtually there project. We are one of only ten classes in Northern Ireland to be involved with this project, which is a great privilege. All the children would like to thank Michael for allowing us to visit the station and John for helping us with our project and for organising the trip.
Congratulations to Adam, he won a £100 voucher for 'We are Vertigo.'
A big thank you to Mr Kernan and all the Healthy Kids coaches for a fantastic fun day.
