Year 9 students at Liskeard School took part in 'Take Your Child to Work Day' on Wednesday 13th November.

This is an annual event where students are able to accompany their parents or relatives to their place of work for the day and start developing their own understanding of the work place environment.  It is an opportunity to speak to their parents, relatives and other employees about the work they do, find out what skills or qualifications they need and also to gain a better understanding of the connection between what they learn in the classroom and how this relates to the work place.

Read for 20 minutes a day for 20 days before the end of term and earn 200 House points for your team.


You can read a book, a magazine, a newspaper, a blog, a website – it doesn’t matter, as long as you’re reading.


…before 2020, read 2020!


Download and print the grid below and stick it in your planner. Get a parent of gurdian to sign the grid each day you read for 20 minutes (or more). When the grid is full up, show it to your tutor.

Deadline: 16th December

The first ‘Liskeard Foodbank Fun Run’ took place on Friday 18th October, on the school field at Liskeard School and Community College. Despite a previously wet and miserable day (which may have deterred some potential runners), the rain held off for the entirety of the event making it a slightly muddy, but comfortable run for those who took part. All ages were encouraged to get involved, participants were given the option to choose the distance that they individually wished to run, jog or walk (anything from 300m right up to 5k). The run was started by Councilor Rachel Brooks the Mayor for Liskeard.
