Dear Carers and Parents,
I am proud to announce that Darrick Wood School has launched a new audio blog.
DWS audio is a short form podcasting service for young people in the Darrick Wood community. The site offers a range of content produced by and featuring our students – everything form original music compositions to plays and short stories. Our aim is to provide a platform for students to express their creative talents and produce content relevant to the lives, and interests, of other young people. The blog has been active since January and we will continue to upload new audio podcasts each week throughout the year.
DWS Audio can be found on the School website (under the Extra-Curricular tab) or via this link: www.dwsaudio.darrickwood.bromley.sch.uk. Pease feel free to subscribe! There is a lot more content to look forward to but DWS Audio cannot continue without the help of our students. If your son or daughter would like to contribute in some way, for example by writing a short story or play, composing a piece of music, or making a podcast about a hobby, then they should send an email to Mr Chappell (firstname.lastname@example.org) stating their particular interest.
We are also currently running a creative writing competition, the best entries of which will be recorded for broadcast on the blog later in the year. This is open to students in every year group. Stories or poems can be about anything but must include the word ‘sound’ somewhere in the text. Stories should be no more than 500 words; poems should be no longer than two pages. Submissions can be made via your child’s English teacher. The deadline is 26th March.
