2017 is looking to be another succesful year for our Youth Media Team, Ella and Kiera have already gained certificates from Saltire Award which aims to recognise the time given to volunteering for those aged 12 to 25 years.
Lliam and Kacper from the Youth Media team have this week kicked off a new Youth Media show with a puzzling nature.
Every Wednesday, Lliam and Kacper aim to get their thinking hats on and quiz each other, as well as listeners and other youth media members, about everything from current events and news, to music and film, to sports and celebrities.
Saturday August 27th saw the return of the annual Celebrate Aberdeen parade to Union Street. As usual, shmu turned out in force for a great day alongside other third sector organisations, who all marched from Harlaw Academy to Castlegate to highlight the range and quality of work being done by these organisations across the city.
On the 28th of July shmu's Youth Media Team were given the opportunity to go and see the Mitchell School of Drama's interpretation of a Midsummer Night's Dream. The first thing I noticed as I watched the performance was the vibrancy of the costumes the actors and actresses were wearing.
March sees the return of Science Week, which takes place this year between 11 - 20 March. This national event attempts to engage and involve people in STEM fields – that is Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
St George's Church in Tillydrone invited shmu's Youth Media Team to have a chat with them about their latest venture in Uganda - Toilet Twining!
The church works hand in hand with local charity, Tillydrone Vision, and after recently upgrading the existing toilet facilities in the building the team had a discussion about what they could do to help.
