The KCS accentFM radio show is run throughout theyear to provide students with some relaxation during reces. It is also a platform for students to make birthday wishes to their peers, highlight upcoming events to the students and share achievements which the school has achieved. The radio show is run by Music Captains who are given the opportunity to learn to use professional audio and sound equipment and serve as radio hosts.
