We are the Advanced Media Productions Class at Chiefess Kamakahelei Middle School in Lihue, Hawaii. Our class is made up of 23 students in grade 6-8. This is our advanced media class but we also have another 30 students in a beginning media class. We actively participate in the Student Television Network or STN for short. They are a national student broadcasting organization based in San Diego, California. We are also proud members of PBS Hawaii’s Hiki No program, the nation’s first statewide student news network.
Our students produce a daily live morning announcement show shown on our school’s closed-circuit television system, are heard weekly on the “Inside Scoop” on FM97 Radio and produce various video projects.
The Inside Scoop on FM97
Our students are heard every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday at 8:50 am, 12:50 pm, and 5:50 pm on FM97, providing the "Inside Scoop" on what's happening in all of our Kauai schools each week! Listen to past Inside Scoops here!
The CKTV Crew will be participating in a number of events coming up. If you're in the area, stop on by and support our class and help get us to San Diego in 2015!
Beach Cleanup Community Service
On Saturday, November 1st, the CKTV Crew participated in a beach cleanup at Lydgate Beach Park. Students and their families spent 3 hours helping to pull weeds, pick up trash, and helping to get clean sand out to the large pond. The weather was beautiful and it was the perfect day to give back to our community who have supported us in so many ways!
STN Practice #4
We'll be having our final STN practice session coming up on March 21st. The plan is to have a regular 6 hour practice session based on your individual teams, like we did for the first two. This will be our last chance to correct the problems we've seen so far before we leave on our trip! Good to great!!!
