As part of National Parliament Week, Liskeard School and Community College recently hosted a talk from a member of the House of Lords, to encourage students to become more engaged with the political and parliamentary process.

Lord Teverson met with 150 students from all year groups for a talk about the work and role of the House of Lords. This was followed by a question and answer session with students leading discussions about the bombing of Syria, the refugee crisis, Trident and the lowering of the voting age. The students were fully engaged in the discussions with many staying behind at the end to find out more from Lord Teverson.

On 6th October 2015 the A level engineering students went to Plymouth University and visited the materials laboratory to use the equipment to gain test data for their A level course work.

Students used a tensile testing machine to test how much force is required to break various metals and hence determine the yield stress and ultimate tensile stress of each material.

Year 12 Biologists spent the day on the rocky shore at Wembury, conducting a quantitative analysis of biodiversity on different tidal zones on the shore. They were joined by a volunteer from Looe Marine Conservation group who is also a second year Marine Biology and Oceanography student. She was extremely impressed with their surveying skills. The students found some real treasure on the lower shore including beautiful star ascidians, velvet swimming crabs, polycheate worms, porcelain crabs, strawberry anemones and even a sand mason worm.

Liskeard School and Community College student and former Caradon Hockey Club player Molly Walsh represented England in The Sainsbury's 2015 School Games held in Manchester over four days from 3-6 September.

Year 12 Biology students visited the Electron Microscopy Centre at Plymouth University getting them off to a brilliant start for their brand new two year A level course. The students had the opportunity to use state of the art Transmission and Scanning Electron Microscopes which are used to study everything from meteorite crystallography to diagnostic pathology.
