    RTÉ lyric fm Outreach Project

    A mobile radio studio is brought to the school where the fundamental aspects of radio programme making are discussed. Students prepare, script, present and produce their programmes.

    If your school would like to take part in the RTÉ lyric fm Educational Outreach Programme, Transition Year Co-ordinators / School Principals should write to us outlining why you would like us to visit your school.

    Teachers are encouraged to discuss why you are applying and what they hope to learn from the project. Students and teachers are encouraged to tune into RTÉ lyric fm before the outreach team visits your school. Why not listen in during music or media studies classes?

    The Educational Outreach Programme is led by Gail Henry, Producer at RTÉ lyric fm and various RTÉ presenters and members of production staff.
