In June, King Edward VI High School will be launching their very own TV channel. It will be broadcast in school and online through the school website and USTREAM. The channel will host educational videos on topics such as healthy eating, literacy, numeracy, fitness, as well as subject-specific videos and documentaries on Science, English, History, Geography, Citizenship, PSHEE, Sports and PE and more! The channel will also showcase videos from celebrities who have starred in videos targeted at secondary school students. On top of this, The Edwardian team have been busy preparing some of their own material to be broadcast on the channel. KEVI TV will be broadcast around school at break and lunchtimes but will also broadcast 24 hours a day, 7 days a week on the school website at www.kevi.org.uk, as well as to visitors to the school in the waiting room.
The TV channel has been set up by The Life Channel, a company specialising in TV broadcast for schools, hospitals and businesses. Programmes will be updated regularly and it is hoped the channel will be a point of information and interest for parents and students, any time or day of the week.
Organiser, Mr Lomas, said “Though small at first, myself and the students who have put this together hope that over time more of our own content will be broadcast on there to enable students in school to share their work and show what incredible talent we have at this school to parents and visitors.”
Mr Christey, who will officially launch the channel on 17th June and broadcast a short welcome, said he hoped “KEVI TV would be another way for the school to engage with parents and the community and allow students who have an interest in a career in the media to explore their hidden talents.”
The channel launches on Friday 17th June at 8.30am and can be watched online on the school website where you can also see the latest news and events from the school.
