We would like to say a BIG thank you to Max Browning, one of our Yr 6 pupils in Class 13 who organised such a great event with the Staff versus Pupils Football match.
The final result was 6-6 - but we are led to believe that one member of staff was given a Yellow card!!
Well Done Max - we hope your football has gone well today too!
Moveit Move it!!
On the 22nd March 4 pupils from St Columb Major Academy took part in a Show at the Hall for Cornwall called ‘Move it’. ‘Move It’ is a show where dance schools in Cornwall come together to show off their talents and just enjoy dance. Erin Aldridge and Shannon King represented Pamela Darlington School of Dance; Chloe Barlow represented Bounce Dance Academy and Ryan Brock represented Funky Feet.
Erin & Shannon performed a ballet number; Chloe did a Bollywood-themed performance and Ryan performed a hip-hop and street dance number.
All pupils agree that it was a thoroughly enjoyable experience and all hope to do it all again!
Well done everyone :-)
21st March was Odd Socks day!
