End of Term - Staff v Pupils

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 :-)

Performance Photography

Please remember at performances/events that although photography/recording is allowed so you can record these magical moments of your own child(ren) we do request that you do not use images of other children for distribution on social media unless you have the parents’ permission. Throughout your child’s time at school there maybe children who cannot have their image on social media and also some parents who do not wish their children to appear.  We would ask that you all take this into consideration – Thank you.
