Radio station’s programme boosts students’ self-esteem


THE ‘Chatroom programme’ has boosted students’ and young people’s self-esteem by way of empowering and helping them in commitment.
This is according to the presenters and coordinators from National Broadcasting Corporation (NBC) and the Catholic Bishops Conference of Papua New Guinea and Solomon Island (CBCPNGSI) who spoke on Tribe FM, last Wednesday during the Tribe FM’s Chatroom programme.
The focus of discussion was on the topic ‘Chatroom a Platform for Empowerment.’
CBCPNGSI media officer Nigel Akuani, who introduced the topic said, the programme was an extension of young people to completely immerse themselves without the feeling of being judged.
“Young people are aware of everything that is happening around them.
“They need a platform to express themselves and share their concerns to a wider audience,” he said.
Tribe FM journalist Raymond Polong while explaining how the show helped students and youths in their public speaking skill said they displayed great confidence when speaking on issues.
“There were certain occasions when we would have the same student twice on the show, and those students displayed great improvement and confidence when speaking on issues,” Polong said.
Polong who is also a radio presenter said the platform stood as a tool to break down social barriers in societies.
Chatroom’s next session will have students from De La Salle Secondary discuss the topic ‘Role of Parents in Children’s Lives’.
