To many people, Christmas is all about 'Traditions' and it's true to say that for many years now it's been a tradition, at the end of term, for Liskeard School to visit a number of local residential homes with Year 7 students to share in a 'Christmas Celebration' with both residents and staff.

The response from Year 7 students this year was fabulous: their hampers, as always, were spectacular and the warmth of welcome they received from each home left everyone in no doubt as to just how much the visits have become part and parcel of their Christmas celebrations.

The festive season can certainly be one of mixed emotions; for some, it's one of fun and excitement - a precious time to spend with family and friends while, for others, it brings only loneliness and a poignant reminder of happier times and children's laughter.

With the school coming to the end of a very busy term, it gave all those involved the opportunity, albeit for just a short time, to step aside from their daily routine, to focus on the real meaning of Christmas  and to bring  a little Christmas cheer to the local community. While it's certainly true that, during their time at Liskeard School, students will no doubt have the opportunity to go on lots of exciting trips, our Christmas visits are perhaps the one and only time they are invited into someone's home which could be why they are so special and fondly remembered by students higher up the school.
