My name is Archie Nicholls, and I’m in Year 10 at Liskeard School & Community College. I completed my week of Work Experience with the Web and Publicity manager at Liskeard School, Mr Luscombe.

Sports Day 2015 brought with it sunshine and showers, sport, music, a blazing BBQ and most importantly a fantastic atmosphere.

In the netball tournament we saw some fantastic passing, dodging and pivoting, some amazing shots and brave interceptions. All tutor groups fought hard against the other tutors groups in their year which brought out the competitive side in everyone. This year’s netball was fiercely contested with six teams entered in each year group. The eventual winners of each year group were 7I, 8L, 9E, and 10S. There was a real sense of team work with lower years stepping in to fill places in the upper year groups and the Sixth Formers helping where ever they could. Sportsmanship was evident throughout and the rain even held off until the last game!

It was a warm and fine evening with ideal conditions for students to arrive in vintage cars, tractors and Harley Davidsons for the 2015 Liskeard School and Community College Year 11 Ball held at Liskeard School’s New Hall.

School leavers adorned the red carpet in beautiful gowns and sharp suits to celebrate their time at Liskeard School and say farewell to friends and to staff who proudly hosted the evening.

The exhibition culminates another highly successful and exciting year for students studying in the Art, Design and Photography departments. Nearly a hundred students exhibited work of the highest standard demonstrating huge interest, energy and excitement within the work. Two dozen GCSE Art and Design students exhibited work, along with thirty-four at GCSE Photography, eleven at AS Art and Design, six at A2 Art and Design, eleven at AS Photography, and seven at A2 Photography. The Arts Award arts leaders also used the opportunity to exhibit the work they had done with students in after school clubs since January.

We started our day by visiting the entrance to the moor, where we did a field sketch, a bi-polar analysis and a pedestrian count. We quickly recapped on how tors were formed, then made our sketches and notes on the area. Then we walked along the road up to the prison, whilst doing a street transect (this is when you note which buildings you see along a street). Street transects are a good way to tell what tourists like to see when they come to an area, and also what the locals like to do. We then stopped near a playground and wrote a few notes on the prison and its history. Like in the previous location, we did a bi-polar analysis, field sketch and a pedestrian count. After walking back to the car park, we did the same tasks as we did the previous two times, then had our lunch break.
