Owls go live on hospital radio 

Four to five year olds from the Owls class at Wyndham Park School enjoyed a unique opportunity to speak ‘on air’ and sing their school song live to patients when they visited Radio Odstock at Salisbury District Hospital.


Kevin Lawrence with parent helper Catherine Kay and children from Wyndham Park School.

The visit was part of a project they are doing on music and dance and each of the 27 children were given a copy of their broadcast as a reminder of the day


Jo Jarvis, Voluntary Services Manager at Salisbury District Hospital said:

“The children really enjoyed the day and it was lovely to see their enthusiasm excitement and curiosity.  They went into the studio in small groups,  but at the end of the programme every pupil squeezed in to sing their school song, ‘The school on the top of the hill’ live on air.”


The visit was made possible thanks to the help of Radio Odstock’s Chairman David Langrish and the children’s teacher Kevin Lawrence who is also a hospital volunteer and Radio Odstock presenter. Ends
