Liskeard School set off to Penair for an eleven-a-side tournament with high hopes. The first game was against Truro and Liskeard’s confidence was a bit low as they hadn’t faired too well against Truro in previous years. Liskeard held their ground and after a demanding first half it was level at the break. For the remainder of the second half it was pretty calm until the last two minutes when Truro won a penalty flick from the ball being stuck under the keeper’s foot. The ball was struck towards goal and the Liskeard keeper lunged out to make the save but couldn’t connect with the ball which rebounded off the post only to be slotted home from the follow up. Liskeard challenged this as the goal shouldn’t have counted as no one had touched the ball from the original penalty flick. The goal was therefore disallowed and the game finished level.

Friday 17th January saw the Cornish Indoor Rowing Championships for Secondary Schools, which was one of the first events to run as part of the 2014 Cornwall School Games. This was the biggest event yet with 222 participants in school years 7-13 and entries from 22 secondary schools.

Two pupils from Liskeard School were the lucky winners of an 8GB Nook tablet as arranged by PepsiCo and the school’s catering company Chartwells.

Year 12 and 13 Business students went to Bristol Cribbs Causeway where they attended a Revision Seminar provided by tutor2u.  There was guidance on exam skills and contemporary business scenarios were analysed. These included a strategic review of a theme park, a pet food business and a popcorn company.

As part of Plymouth University’s Widening Participation Programme to encourage students who would not usually consider Higher Education, an experience of what university has to offer was provided at a day to celebrate the Chinese New Year. The students in attendance were from Year 12 and 13.
