Kalkie students jingle their way onto the airwaves

"I'M A baby loggerhead, please help me".

No, this isn't a plea coming from the mouths of the species themselves, but from a group of passionate Kalkie School students determined to make an environmental difference.

The Year 3 students, as part of their studies of endangered animals, came up with a poem and corresponding video about Bundy's famous turtles.

And, with the help of some musical backing from some Year 7 students, they recorded their song on ABC Wide Bay yesterday.

Teacher Judi Stutchbury said the children had done an excellent job."It's rather cute," she said."It was the first time most of them had been on the radio.

"Year 3 student Josh Flett said he made a huge life size turtle "lue" with his granddad.

"We made it out of recycled materials, mostly wire, and it even has its own spot for eggs," he said.

"Our class is going to loan it to the Mon Repos Rookery so everyone can see it.

"The school is hoping the poem and paper mache props will go on display at the turtle rookery for all to enjoy.

Jingle vocalist Lukaeja Morrison said it was an exciting experience to record in the studio, and was looking forward to hearing it today on 100.1FM between 9.30am-9.45am.
