Year 11 Trip to Wish FM

On the morning of the 10th September, 12 pupils from Year 11 walked the short distance from St. Peter’s to Wish FM’s broadcasting building, known as The Lodge, to take part in a session tailored to creating the perfect advert to promote our Open Evening on Wednesday 1st October. We were greeted by Chris Milow, the DJ of the 2-7pm show, the Home Run, and were split into two groups. One group created a radio show and recorded it, whilst the other wrote and recorded an advert. 
 After we had completed our radio show and adverts, we were then shocked to be notified of the arrival of none other than Peter Andre. Amazingly we got to meet him. We had a chat; Peter told us that he would be appearing in Ant and Dec’s Takeaway on Tour in Liverpool that night, and then we had photos with him. Thanks to Mrs Corkill for providing us with this interesting opportunity to experience a day at a real radio station and to record the advert for our Open Evening, which has been heard daily on Wish FM ever since.
