Year 10 Business students from Liskeard School and Community College recently visited London as part of their course to gain a real life experience of the business world.

The trip was packed with activities to maximise the experience. After having arrived in London Paddington on the train, students got their first taste of business in London by using the tube to get their first destination. This would be the primary method of transport for the rest of the visit. Students started by visiting the Bank of England Museum and understanding the role the BoE plays in the world of business. From here, students visited the London Eye to ask visitors questions which will help for their controlled assessment work, before enjoying the views the Eye itself offers. Students enjoyed the evening with a visit and meal in Chinatown.

Liskeard School & Community College recently hosted an evening to exhibit the stunning work of its students to fellow students, parents and the wider community.

Work included GCSE and A-Level in the subject areas of art, photography, media and textiles. The work on view across all courses exhibited a very wide range of subject matter and personal inspiration some of which portrayed highly emotive, challenging and thought provoking themes.

There was an overwhelming turnout for the Liskeard School and Community College Year 11 ball as students bid a fond farewell and remember their time at Liskeard School.  Proud families and members of the local community lined the school grounds and looked on with pride and delight, as the students arrived in an array of imaginative transport including a boat, golf buggy, steam engine and horse and carriage. There was even an instrumental procession of from some of our talented Year 11 music students who arrived on the back of a trailer entertaining the crowds.

The visit by the giant Man Engine to Liskeard on 26th July will be a unique event. The Cornish Times has linked up with the organisers to host a photographic competition of the event. You could capture a winning photo of the giant mechanical puppet when he visits Liskeard.

The theme of the competition will be 'The Spirit of the Man Engine in Liskeard'. You may enter as many photographs as you wish, but your picture should show something of Liskeard and the fun and excitement of the mechanical giant during his visit to The Parade from midday on Tuesday 26th July. The best photograph will be featured in the Cornish Times, together with the winner's name.

During the 1980s the BBC Micro was the most popular school computer and helped inspire the first generation of computer programmers.  The BBC has decided to repeat this success and has given every Year 7 pupil in the UK their own mini-computer, the micro:bit.  These small devices can connect to a PC using a USB cable or to a smart phone using Bluetooth.

Year 7 students at Liskeard School and Community College have all been issued with their own micro:bit and are learning how they can program these devices.  Students are finding out how to create images and display scrolling text on the 25 LED lights, create mini-games, and utilise the on-board compass and temperature sensor.
