KPE is my new favourite podcast. I’ve known about it for about an hour, and already I’ve gone through and listened to them all. It’s the project of a bunch of kids at Pt. England School who talk about books by New Zealand authors.
From the website:
Pt England Primary School in Auckland, New Zealand, has an enthusiastic group of students producing a weekly podcast they call KPE – Korero Pt England.
The producers of this podcast are aged from 9 -11 years. They are working with their teachers on a project promoting reading in their classrooms. They are reading lots of books written by New Zealand authors. Their podcasts are an opportunity to let people know about these books and about life in New Zealand.
They’re all great – but Kim Hill better watch her back: that Anahera’s going to be a radio star.
The best bit though – that theme tune. Just superb.
This makes me so happy.
