This year’s Young Enterprise team, made up of nine year 10 students, recently travelled to Cornwall Services for their first trade fair of the year and experienced first-hand what it is like to sell products to the public.

Lync.it – the name of the team - have been working on their product since October and have decided to develop a product range of mobile device accessories. Even in the early stages, the team managed to develop a prototype to show to customers at the trade fair and gain invaluable market research about their product range.

Local sports star Merryn Doidge has recently been selected to be part of the England Under 18’s Rugby Talented Development Group.

Merryn developed her rugby skills at club level and during her time at Liskeard School and Community College. From the age of six she played mixed rugby with the boys. Then at the Under 13 stage she moved to girls’ rugby. Merryn started off at Newquay Queen Bees before moving to Liskeard Looe in 2015, also playing at county level, she was selected for the South West Under 15 squad and competed in the National Schools Finals in 2016. Merryn is now attending Exeter College where she studies sports and exercise science and is part of the Exeter Chiefs Women’s Rugby Academy.

Year 7 students at Liskeard School & Community College represented Team Liskeard in the community and truly embraced the school ethos of courage, resilience and kindness when they took part in a community project with a local Beaver Scout troop.  The project was part of Liskeard School celebrating the 40th anniversary of becoming a comprehensive school next year.

The directors and governors of Liskeard School and Community College have a statutory duty (under the School Standards and Framework Act 1998, as amended by the Education and Skills Act 2008 and the School Admissions Code 2012 to consult on its Admissions Arrangements at least once every seven years or when any changes from the previous year are proposed or where there has been a change in Admissions Authority.

As Liskeard School and Community College is now part of SMART (South East Cornwall Multi Academy Regional Trust) there has been a change in the Admissions Authority from the Local Authority to SMART. Therefore there is a need to consult on the Admissions Arrangements for 2019/20.

The Liskeard and South East Cornwall Breather's Group is a charity supporting sufferers of COPD (chronic obstructive pulmonary disease) - a chronic lung disease that causes severe breathing difficulties. The group have been a long supporter of the school giving annual talks to students about the importance of not smoking. Their impact has been amazing with the proportion of young smokers falling dramatically over the last 5 years.
