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.

The Liskeard Proper Cakey Tea was launched on Friday 26th June from Liskeard School and Community College. Where better to launch this commemorative event which is celebrating the re-launch of the Liskeard Bun, which in the 1960s was presented by the Town Mayor to the children of Liskeard.

Liskeard School and Community College’s School Council students recently held a session in the Town Hall in Liskeard. The session was kindly hosted by current Liskeard Mayor Phil Seeva who was on hand to offer advice, thought provoking insights and support. After the session Mr Seeva allowed students to be pictured wearing the Mayor’s own chain whilst sitting at the front of the room.
