Churchill Fellowship Interviews

Radio Carrum’s Station Manager, Marcus Mulcahy, and recipient of a 2017 Churchill Fellowship, travelled to the USA in May/June 2018 to research innovative digital technology and makerspaces in schools and communities.  While he was in the USA, Marcus interviewed a variety of education and community professionals for a podcast series called the ‘Churchill Fellowship Interviews’.

Podcast History of Carrum

Hi folks, we need your help. In Term 3, the Grade 5/6 students at Carrum Primary School are researching the history of Carrum. As part of their work they will be producing a series of podcasts capturing stories and events that take listeners on a journey meandering through Carrum’s recent history, uncovering previously unheard stories, histories and personalities.

We would love to hear your story!!

We are seeking involvement from locals who can give listeners an insight into what it was like at Carrum Primary School in the past, the time before Patterson Lakes was built, the early years of our great local clubs – Football, Cricket, SLSC, Bowling, Sailing, etc., stories about our unique Carrum Cowboys. We are after any story about Carrum’s history, tall tales and true.

If you would like to be involved with this project, please contact Marcus Mulcahy at mmulcahy@carrumps.vic.edu.au or call the Carrum PS Office on 97721117. Thank you for your support!! (The photo features some Carrum Cowboys)

Digitech Show launches!

The Digitech Show, a podcast about education, technology, innovation & design, has launched on Radio Carrum. Hosted by Marcus Mulcahy and Narelle Derix from Carrum Primary School, on behalf of the Northern Peninsula Digital Technology Teachers Network. In the first episode, Marcus and Narelle chat with Helene Bearup from Patterson Lakes PS about the amazing robotics work she has explored for over 15 years. We also get some insight into the new AR work Helene is developing with her students. We speak with Melinda Cashen, President of Digital Learning & Teaching Victoria about the exciting features of this year’s Digicon Conference (27 & 28 July). The students at Carrum PS also share some of the Digitech projects they are developing at school.
