I'm sure you've seen the amazing story of Captian Tom, walking 100 laps of his garden at the age of 99 and raising over £25 million for the NHS. Well, it's his 100th birthday soon and my next request is for you to send him a virtual birthday card to say thank you for what he has done.

Just post a photo of you with your card using the hashtag #makeacardfortom before his birthday on 30th April (see link below). Thanks to Ms Knapman for suggesting the idea.

Last week, Mr Lingard asked students to create a 'Rainbow Message' to send to patients who are critically ill at Derriford Hospital. Well, they didn't disappoint - please see photo below of the 120 messages we received. Thank you to every one of you who was kind enough to send one in. Huge thanks also to Mr James for collecting them in and to Mr Pascoe for photographing each one.

The messages will be collected by one of the senior nurses at Derriford.

Four technology teachers here at Liskeard School and Community College (Mr Hurdwell, Ms Yoxall, Ms Ward and Ms Naysmith), have been busy making face visors.

These visors so far have been sent out to Nurses and Care Workers across Devon and Cornwall.

Tavistock Hospital received 20 (as requested), Community Nurses working out of Oaktree Surgery in Liskeard have been given 14 (as requested), visors have also been supplied to Beech Lawn Nursing Home today and Liskeard Community Hospital are next on the list.

Write a message of support for the most critically ill patients who have no access to family or friends at Derriford Hospital. Your message of support will brighten someone’s day.

Either post it to us, drop it into Reception between 9.30am -11.30am or email it to Mr James at

Remember to include the following on the front of your message:

  • Your name
  • Your age
  • Our school name

Please complete these by Friday 17th April.

If you know of someone who is a key worker and needs help with childcare during this awful time, or you yourself are a key worker. Please share or go onto our link below, to see if you are eligible for our support and help. Please be aware that if you have any support network living with you (family, friend or partner) and they are able to look after your child, we strongly advise that they stay at home in self isolation to reduce the risks.
If you would like to know how we are maintaining safe measures, please speak to a member of our team or you can alternatively send us an email for further information on
