School and community came together when a group of Sixth Form students in Liskeard School’s Bridge Academy helped put on the first ‘Make Things Happen’ event.  The school and students worked with the Real Ideas Organisation (RIO) which brought together a variety of groups, individuals and Community businesses to talk about what’s already going on in our town and what can be developed.

A great variety of contributors included 3 Dance, Fotonow, The Media Workshop and Liskeard Museum, all enjoying free soup, treats and cake courtesy of the Junk Food Project.  There was a real buzz to the evening and huge credit goes to the six sixteen-year olds who made this happen: Liam, Callum, Josh, Camron, Jake and Todd of Liskeard Sixth Form ably assisted by Jules Marshall and Jamie Gamble from RIO.

Jules Marshall from RIO said, “I’m just so proud of the way this group have come together and stepped up to a lot of challenges.  They made this event happen and this is just the start.”

James O’Connell, Deputy Head at Liskeard School said, “We’re really excited to be working with RIO, to be engaging with the wider community and to be giving some of our students a voice and an opportunity to develop and engage with issues and ideas that matter to them in the area they live.”
