Delhi school events: Ryan International School celebrates World Radio Day
Following the path shown by its chairman Dr. Augustine F. Pinto, Ryan International School, Sector – 40, Gurugram, has been organising various activities to ensure all-round development of its students.
This year, one such big event was the celebration of the World Radio Day 2021 on the theme Radio and Diversity. The students took part in that event with zeal. According to Unesco, radio stations should serve diverse communities and offer a wide range of programmes.
To celebrate the World Radio Day, the students participated in Coolest RJ competition held virtually on Ryan Station. RJs hosted a radio talk show where they selected the music to be played, or topic of discussion, by interacting with the audience and perform in a creative and innovative way.
In addition, Ryanites also took part in Declamation and JAM (Just A Minute) competition wherein they spoke about their favourite RJs of various radio stations. They also made colourful, bright and vibrant props to enhance their presentation. The students enthusiastically participated and whole heartedly enjoyed these different virtual activities.
School Head Shivali Sharma appreciated the efforts of Ryanites for their creative presentation and encouraged them to participate more in various activities for overall development of personality.
Radio is a medium of entertainment which permits millions of people to listen to the same joke at the same time, and yet remains lonesome. Radio is a powerful medium for celebrating humanity in all its diversity and constitutes a platform for democratic discourse.
At the global level, radio remains the most widely consumed medium. This unique ability to reach out to the widest audience means radio can shape a society’s experience of diversity, stand as an arena for all voices to speak out, be represented and heard.
