Radio has appeal for children too

Have you heard the new program for children and their parents/caregivers on Umeewarra Radio?

Way To Play is the new show brought to you by Mandy Dempsey and Hayley Newchurch every Friday at 1-2pm; with a repeat the following Tuesday in case you miss the first broadcast.

Way To Play is sure to get you up and dancing, and singing along with an emphasis on helping young children to get healthy and be active, and help them with their social, emotional, physical and cognitive development.

There are also tips and interviews for parents and caregivers about what is happening and coming up around Port Augusta with different people and organisations.

There are jokes, stories, and fun music and songs by children at different schools and kindergartens around town with the help of Mandy and the teachers.

There has also been exciting news around the town lately.

Way To Play has been nominated in the category of the Community Engagement Award at the Public Education Awards.

Congratulations to Hayley and Mandy and everyone who has been involved in helping to make and put together this awesome show.
