Our Own Hockey Heroes!

A collection of our Year 4, 5 and 6 pupils headed over to Penzance Hockey Club for some friendly festival games on Thursday. A mixed bag of results which culminated in a hotly contested ‘friendly’ derby between our two Penpol Teams. Some action shots are below! The children represented the school brilliantly and as is often the case, were a pleasure to take. Smiles beamed between the rain clouds as the children grew into the games and felt more comfortable in what for many was a very alien environment.

If you’d like to know any more about hockey at Penzance head over to their Facebook page, it is a brilliant friendly club with a great youth set up from Under 8’s to 18’s!

Penpol Swim to Success

The swimmers from Penpol enjoyed success in the pool at the Penwith School’s Gala a fortnight ago.

After a two year hiatus due to the pandemic it was wonderful to see a return to competitive swimming and boy did the children love it. Penpol topped the medal table finishing with 60 points over all; a monstrous 15 its above silver place.

All individual teams medalled as well with Yr 5 girls, Yr 6 boys and Yr 6 girls all picking up silver medals and the Yr 5 boys collecting gold.

The medal haul however wasn’t the most impressive outcome fore the day; that was the way in which the children carried themselves throughout the afternoon, showing exceptional levels of sportsmanship and fair play. They certainly did themselves and us as a school very proud.

Year 6 hit the heights at The Tide

Our current Year 6 pupils had their activity week curtailed last year due to the pandemic but finally had the chance to don the harnesses and head to The Tide. Thanks must go to Mr Pollard who put his hard work into organising this trip last year; he did however get the chance to have a go too!

Split across two days, both Classes 13 and 14 spent the day at The Tide Climbing Centre near Wadebridge. Here they had the opportunity to challenge their thirst for heights and climb with ropes on their climbing wall and without on the bouldering wall.

Both walls provided children (and adults) varying levels of challenge at the same time as allowing each individual to challenge their own limits; climbing higher and faster each time with increasing confidence. It was fair to say fun was had by all with aching limbs all round for the days to follow!

More information about The Tide Climbing Centre can be found HERE.

Dance Fever hits Penpol!

Class 13 were the last in a long list of children to attend an introductory workshop at Hayle’s own Savvy Studios. Years 4, 5 and 6 have all had the opportunity to take part in two separate workshops; one lyrical and one contemporary.

At Penpol we pride ourselves on our links with local business and sports clubs. It has been difficult for both us and them during pandemic, but it was so lovely to get back out there and give the children these wonderful opportunities to try and experience different sports and hobbies.

The children were rewarded for their hard work and creativity with a flyer offering attendance at some trial classes; this is not only open to those who have attended but anyone who may be interested.

You can see the amazing work that goes on at Savvy by taking a look at their website. Parents, it is also her you can book some trial classes, with no pressure to sign up at the end!
