In Year 9 media this semester students have continued making the award winning show “The Kingo Project”. The show is a current affairs talk show that includes local guests and news, and broadcasts live all around the school.
The process begins with students scripting all the shows content in the two lessons prior, and entering it all on the teleprompter.
On Tuesday Morning the show goes live to every electronic whiteboard and video screen in the school. Students have to set up all the equipment, operate the cameras, the video mixer, the sound and the lights, and then pack it all up afterwards. All in a 90 minute lesson! The show was recently featured on WIN News and the local newsreaders commented on the professionalism and quality of our show.
The show has also been visited by a number of other schools looking for inspiration, even playing host to an international delegation. The Kingo project has featured a number of local guests, including sporting stars, politicians, health professionals and even local bands! The student produced show continues to be a whole lot of fun, and the kids have all learnt industry skills in a school based environment. Some of our members have also begun mentoring some of our younger Year 5 students creating a show of their own…so stay tuned to the Kingo Project!
The Kingo Project is based at Kingsford Smith School.
