Pupils open student radio station
Bristol schoolchildren are being helped to set up their own community radio station to keep them out of mischief for the summer holidays.

The scheme, the work of the I City Learning Centre and Upper Horfield Community Trust, will make use of the skills of 25 young students.

Three weeks of activities have been organised for pupils from Monks Park School Upper Horfield Primary.

The student-run Internet radio station will be called Summer Fun Radio.

It will broadcast daily round-ups of the children's activities.

Pc Terry Phillips said: "We have organised a whole range of activities to drive home some important messages around anti-social behaviour, criminal damage and car crime.

"These include a trip to Goblin Combe Environment Centre to learn about the effects of dropping litter, a circus skills day to improve teamwork and communications skills, and a session at Police Headquarters in Portishead about the dangers of joyriding and to interview a chief officer."
