We are joined in the studio by SWIS Teacher Jaikala Prasad (DP Physics and MYP Science) who tells us some background information about herself in the first part of the show. We also hear about her home city Mumbai, what she values and is passionate about in life.

In the second part of the show we hear about the upcoming TEDx event at SWIS on the 23rd March at 11am. This is the very first TEDx event at SWIS after Jaikala secured a license for our school. It promises to be an amazing event.

The event will need school wide support and Jaikala is currently liaising with the Marketing, Logistics, Music, Design and IT Departments as well as the SLT to make this event a huge success. She is looking for volunteers to help out with the event. More information to follow after the Chinese New Year Holiday.

We hope you enjoy the show and that you will support Jaikala in making the TEDx event at SWIS an event to remember for years to come!

St.Patrick was a Sportsman at SWIS

This afternoon we recorded an extra special Sports Podcast on SWIS ROC Radio.

What started out as an ordinary sports podcast, quickly descended in to an all out St.Patrick's Day show!

Pat Mustard (a famous Irish Character in the hit show Fr.Ted who actually died yesterday...RIP Pat) was played by our AD Josh Youngman.

We had Winnie from the MYP playing the role of Mrs Doyle (another character in this show ).

They both were on the show to speak about the sports department at SWIS and their excellent recent achievements.

Alongside, Pat and Mrs Doyle, was Emmet O' Halloran from Tulla in East Clare.

Emmet is the Product Design Teacher at SWIS and is a highly accomplished accordion player. He played a number of tunes on the accordion during the show.

We brought our own unique brand of Irish Humor to todays show. We hope you enjoy it.

This morning we raised 2400 for the Cambodia Orphanage at SWIS Shenzhen (www.swis.cn) in only 25 minutes through the sales of Irish Flags & Ribbons as well as face painting.

We will be out the front of school again selling and taking charity donations this afternoon.

To all the Irish at home and abroad we wish you an enjoyable St.Patrick's Weekend.

Stay safe, have fun and do us proud as always Ted!

Lá fhéile Pádraig sona dhaoibh!

This afternoon we recorded an excellent podcast with the students and their supervisors from the MUN Team.

Mrs Maria Chaytor and Ms.April D

Our students Bhumija, Khushi, Jessie, Jessica from Grades 9-11 spoke excellently about the Model United Nations Conference that they attended last weekend in UISZ Guangzhou.

Bhumija - who is President of MUN at SWIS spoke passionately about topics such as Indigenous Rights that were debated during the conference.

We concluded the podcast with a very brief (far too brief) interview/interrogation of Ms.Dalbello and Mrs.Chaytor who gave us some background information about themselves.

We hear the heart warming...story of how Mrs.Chaytor met and fell in love with Mr.Robert Chaytor....many, many, many years ago!

We hope you enjoy the show!

There's only one topic on the student's lips this week and it is Basketball.

Charlie and Vivien join Mr.Youngman in the studio!

With yet another victory by the outstanding, athletic and student basketball team over the ageing, crippled and sometimes blind basketball teachers of SWIS, the students can rightly declare themselves as the KINGS/QUEENS of the basketball courts of SWIS!!!

Well done students!

A special shout out to the referees Mr.Chaytor who got a 10/10 rating and Mr.Youngman who got a less than impressive 6/10 rating.

We hear about basketball teams at SWIS and their development over the past few years and also their recent games.
