Also fundraising recently was Owen King 7E who took part in the CHICKS Santa fun run in Callington.

He ran a distance of approximately two miles raising money for CHICKS, a charity that provides free respite breaks for disadvantaged children from across the UK.

Owen raised £350 for this worthwhile cause – well done Owen!

Students in the Capital

Sixth Form students Matt and Lucy were in London earlier this week where they participated in the EU Mock Council in Westminster.

They gave prepared statements on energy efficiency and children in criminal proceedings speaking as an EU country that they were allocated at random.

Ms Moreton said, “In the ornate surroundings of the Locarno Suite at the Foreign and Commonwealth Office Matt and Lucy were excellent delegates, speaking with clarity and conviction for their adopted country, and were honoured to meet a representative from the Cypriot Embassy who had attended especially to meet them. She was very impressed with their level of dedication and commitment, testament not only to them but to the preparation from their teacher, Mr Macleod.”
