The second edition of the RX Radio Newsletter has been released! This quarterly newsletter is intended to entertain the readers and act as a space for Child and Young Reporters to express themselves in a written medium.
In this edition, we focus on a number of topics and milestones in RX Radio’s development, including:
- President Cyril Ramaphosa’s visit to RX Radio on Mandela Day, the 18th of July 2019. Talitha (14) and Saadiq (13) wrote articles about their experiences of the day and how it was interviewing the President of South Africa.
- The Liberty Radio Awards 2019. Yusrah (12) wrote about her experience being nominated for The Best Internet Radio Show along with her sister Naseerah, as well as their experience at the awards in Johannesburg earlier this year.
- The trip to London for the United Nations Committee on the Rights of the Child in the Digital Environment. Young Reporter Tarique (18) writes about his upcoming trip to London, along with Senior Content Producer Noluyolo Ngomani.
- The upcoming RX Radio Youth Music Festival. Alex (16) talks about the music festival that will be taking place on the Red Cross Hospital field between the hospital and Sportsman’s Warehouse.
There are also articles by Kauthar (18), Luzuko (17), and Jesse (13) who talk about their experiences with RX Radio and what they think about the station. Finally, we have two articles that were contributed by members of the hospital community – including an article on physiotherapy by Jenny du Preez and a recipe for mayonnaise by Sister Jane Booth.
We hope that you will enjoy reading this newsletter and that you will learn something new from the Child and Young Reporters at RX Radio.
