Day of Action for Climate Change Parents and pupils may be aware that Friday 20th September will mark another day of global action and protest, to raise awareness and understanding of the many complex issues surrounding global Climate Change. Kernow Learning Trust recognises the vital importance of educating our pupils about the developing climate emergency, and have committed as a Trust to ensuring that all of our schools work to ensure that our pupils know that they are Global Citizens with a responsibility for our global environment. Every school in the Trust has a ‘Global Learning’ Leader and all schools are currently engaging in training to deliver ‘Global Learning’ to their staff. We cannot encourage pupils to be absent from school on this Friday, due to our duty of care for our pupils, but we have decided to enable pupils to show their solidarity with the Climate Change movement through a series of initiatives in our schools in the forthcoming weeks and months ahead. Our schools will teach more about the challenges that we face through issues such as plastic pollution, recycling and saving energy. We are very proud to have Eden as a member of our Trust and so consideration of the challenges that will face our children’s generation, and how they can influence future developments through their actions is never far from our Trust discussions.

Residential Year 1 - Porthpean July 2018

Year 1 Porthpean residential trip was an exciting, busy and hot adventure for all! The children arrived on Wednesday morning whereby they enjoyed a tour of the site and made their beds in the tent homes. They got stuck in to the camp activities that afternoon by learning archery and wall climbing- many combatting height fears and relished the chance to try something new! That evening after tea, we walked down to Porthpean beach to create sand creatures before returning back to camp for hot chocolate, story time and bed.
 
Our second day started with a cooked breakfast and then set off to the beach for canoeing,kayaking, swimming and lots of fun! The hill climb back to camp has been the slowest part of the day but all was well again with some time to play in the sun before our fish and chip tea!
 
On our last day, the campers slept in a little later after their busy day at the beach the day before. We stayed onsite to take part in orienteering and den building. The children continued to impress the staff each day with their enthusiasm, positive attitude, kindness and maturity- well done Porthcothan and Mawgan Porth campers for a very enjoyable first residential!
