Liskeard School and Community College student Victoria Sichel has a new family!  In early July, during Liskeard School’s annual Challenge Week, the Year 9 student met nearly 600 new relatives for the first time. 

Victoria, who has lived in Liskeard all her life, never knew how big her family was until she discovered them through four days of intensive research into her family tree with Karen O’Livey, the English Faculty Teaching Assistant at Liskeard.  With access to billions of records on Ancestry and FindMyPast, Victoria travelled back through over five centuries, and across three continents to track the movements of her ancestors by comparing passenger lists with birth and marriage records.

Aden Pike, a Teaching Assistant at Liskeard School recently gained a place on the WKU England Karate Team to compete in Orlando, Florida for the WKU World Karate Championships which takes place in September. Liskeard School held a dress down day to raise money for Aden. The money raised will go towards the training and entry fees as well as helping Aden get to America to compete.

Students at Liskeard School & Community College have had another fantastic year of work experience opportunities. Year 10 and 12 students have returned to school full of their own stories and ideas about what sort of career lies ahead of them.

Liskeard School and Community College recently held its annual Challenge Week for students in year 7, 8, and 9. There were an array of activities aimed at challenging students both physically and mentally in locations inside the school, in the community and further afield.

A group of Year 9 students at Liskeard School & Community College were invited to join a two and a half day course focusing on effective problem solving. They were set a series of challenges associated with a possible global catastrophe which was likely to occur 25 years into the future, and had to produce a report detailing the solutions that needed to be addressed and implemented.
