On the 12th March 2014 we set out on our trip to London. We left school at 10:30am. The few hours on the train were definitely worth the wait. When we got to London we went straight onto the tube to High Street Kensington where we walked to the youth hostel to unpack our bags. The youth hostel was really nice and the beds were really comfortable.

Liskeard School & Community College has been running a Football Academy at the school to allow talented footballers to combine top level football in a professional atmosphere whilst furthering their education. Tailor made timetables keep the players at their best both on and off the pitch and most take the opportunity to play at an appropriate level outside of college life.

Liskeard School recently took part in fundraising activities for the charity Sport Relief. In total the school raised £639.97 to help change lives both in the UK and abroad.

Staff and pupils donated £1 to wear their teams’ colours or something sporty for the day. There was an array of football and rugby kits on show. Some of the more elaborate outfits saw students dressed in full cricket pads and head bands.

We were fortunate to have Professor Phippen from Plymouth university visit and spend 2 hours providing a lecture and tutorial on Technology.  He discussed the use of social media, such as Facebook and Twitter and how they are used as business tools.  He also discussed the impacts of globalisation on emerging markets to my our A Level Business Studies class.  This was great preparation for their final exam and also an opportunity to discuss studying Business at Higher Education level.

Liskeard School has recently introduced a Rag Bag recycling centre on the school premises with thanks to the Liskeard School Friends’ Co-operative. A metal bin has been placed in the car park outside the school reception for the recycling of clothes and shoes. The bin has been placed specifically to enable the local community to recycle their unwanted items with textiles being recycled into useful items or sent to Africa and other developing nations.
