Breaking News ! Pupils at a West Dunbartonshire school have been keeping the area entertained thanks to a new partnership with a local radio station. The talented youngsters from Kilpatrick School have learned new skills whilst entertaining River Radio listeners, and with the Vale-based station planning on joining the DAB network the sky could be the limit for the pupils. Andy Rimar, music teacher at the additional support needs facility, explained to the Lennox Herald that the kids have learned plenty since taking to the airwaves. He said: “The radio station environment is something that the pupils feel a real sense of ownership over, and our collaboration with River Radio is making their collective voices just that much stronger. “An important part of all pupils’ work in the radio station is the ability to set goals and meet deadlines on a reasonable timeline, both as individuals and as part of a team.
