Constantine School Celebrates 50 Years

Constantine School recently celebrated its 50th anniversary with a special assembly and an impressive display of memorabilia from its past. Parents, past and present pupils, and members of the local community all went along to the school to enjoy an afternoon of presentations, shared memories, photos and exhibits, including an old school cane!

The school continues to go from strength to strength. Our reputation for our creative curriculum and wide ranging opportunities has spread far and wide and we now have 174 children on role. In the past year we have introduced weekly cookery and gardening for everyone and we have continued to enhance our learning with trips, visitors, workshops and camps. Our extra curricular clubs range from Samba to Zorbing (we offer over 20 through the year), and last year was our most successful in

terms of sporting achievements and opportunities offered. We also gained Healthy Schools Plus award and became a pilot school for the E-bug project – you may have seen us on BBC Spotlight. We worked with the Royal Cornwall Hospital and Public Health England to raise awareness of health and hygiene and to help cut down on antibiotic use.

The dedicated staff and wonderful children ensure that every day there is a buzz of different activity and a love of learning. It has been a great pleasure to wel- come many members of Constantine parish to share some of our celebrations this year. It has also been a pleasure for the children to get out and about in the community and participate in events that make Constantine unique and special. We truly value this mutual support.
