Liskeard School and Community College continued their drive to promote the importance of democracy and to engage young people with politics as they welcomed Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron and Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Spokesman for South East Cornwall, Phil Hutty, as part of Mr Farron’s three day visit to Cornwall.

Liskeard School continues to promote Electronics and Engineering as 12 electronics students visited Bodmin College to build, programme and test their own robots in conjunction with the Royal Academy of Engineering and Bodmin College. Students spent a day learning how to use robots controlled from Arduino circuits. The robots were programmed and controlled via Bluetooth using an App on Android mobile phones. The focus of this visit was to study the use of microcontrollers and to learn how to programme electronic circuits.

Liskeard School GCSE engineering students went on an industrial visit to Teagle near Redruth to see first-hand how a local engineering manufacturing company produces large scale mass produced products. Teagle is a ‘Land based’ engineering company that design and manufacture agricultural machinery such as cattle feeding/bedding machines, muck spreaders and mowing machines, to name but a few.

Fifteen of our top set year 10 students attended a further maths support programme (FMSP) day at Penryn Campus on Friday 6th January. The purpose of the day was to inspire our highest achievers in maths to pursue the subject at A-level and to think about where maths might take them in the future.

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.
