Liskeard School & Community College have a team of Year 7 and 8 Science Leaders. They applied for the student leadership position at the start of the year and participate in leading science activities both within the school and for the local primary schools, aiming to develop their leadership and science skills. Poppy Honeywell, one of our Year 7 science leaders was asked what she enjoyed about the position, “It’s great fun and interesting and I love all of the experiences we get.”

The science leaders helped enthusiastically during the school’s open evening, assisting both prospective students and parents with the experiments and in talking about science at Liskeard School. Josh Woolfe, year 8, said “Being a science leader means that you can help with open evenings and visit primary schools to show them what we do at Liskeard School and it is a very enjoyable experience.”

The Science Leaders also had the chance to participate in the ‘Operating Theatre Live’ event, aimed at students who would like a career in medicine, sports science/physiology, physiotherapy etc. Charlotte Taylour, year 8, said “It was a really interesting experience. I loved it, I was able to get hands on with a real brain, and I mean hands-on. I had to lift the brain out of the head!”

The Science Leaders have hosted Trenode Primary school at Liskeard, and have led workshops at Hillfort Primary. Rebecca Stephens, Year 7, commented “Being a science leader helps to improve your skills of being a leader and it is good fun”. They have already led two school based science house competitions, leading over 70 students at a time, and are planning their next science competition to take place after the Easter break.
