Arch D Podcasting Awards

The 2022 Arch D Podcasting Awards were hosted at Sacred Heart College to celebrate the achievements of CESA students as one big podcasting community. The red-carpet event was lively, with a 70’s disco theme.

Congratulations to Year 9 students, Grace, Chloe & Olivia, who won The Most Creative Podcast (Middle) category for their podcast titled Eshay Bah. I was also presented with one of two StaffCaster awards, by Arch D Radio and Podcasting.

I would like to further congratulate the following Year 9 students for making it onto the very short nomination list for awards. No more than 5 people/teams were nominated in any of each of the award categories, with over one thousand students participating in the program. What an amazing achievement!
