Fundraising for Cancer Research
We visited the Cancer Reseach Exhibition in Liskeard to look at the amazing artwork and chose our favourite pictures. We are going to replicate the pictures and have an art exhibition of our own to raise money for Cancer Research.
The pupils have enjoyed making swans from fir cones, feathers and pipe cleaners to decorate a special tree at the St. Ive Church Christmas Tree Festival. Why not go along and see for yourself from 9-13th December 2015.
On Tuesday 11th November the staff and pupils walked to Quethiock War Memorial behind a standard bearer from the Royal British Legion. The memorial service was conducted by the Revd. Margot Davies, with the children reciting the poems, ‘Flander’s Fields’ and the ‘Ode of Remembrance.’ Mrs Collins then laid a wreath on behalf of the school.
We watched Plymouth Raiders!
In order to provide the children with a wider variety of sports at Quethiock, 2 Plymouth University Raiders players, Gareth Murray from Scotland and Derek Elston from USA, have been visiting weekly to coach the children in basketball. In return, children, staff and parents went along to watch the Plymouth Raiders play the Newcastle Eagles on Saturday 4th April. Although the Raiders lost 101-90 they played well and inspired their new fans. They even got to meet Foxy the team mascot!!The children now hope to enter a basketball team into the upcoming ARENA basketball festival.
We are the most improved team this season!
This year Quethiock CofE School netball team have had an amazing season in the Callington Primary School Leagues. Although we only have 12 children to choose from, the team worked hard, developed their skills and lost, drew and won some games. They finish 8th in the league and were recognised as the most improved team by the tournament referees
Staying safe online
As part of keeping ourselves safe on line, PCSO Mark Horton and Sarah visited the school to talk about what cyber bullying was, help us to identify how to protect ourselves on line and who we could to if we had a problem.
St. Piran's day
To celebrate St Piran's and World Book Day the school held a local culture day, making saffron buns, learning Cornish dancing and reading local stories.
