Brunel takes every opportunity to be visible and make links in the community, e.g. Y3/4 are in the third year of working with St Anne’s Residential Home as part of the Archie Project, a nationwide initiative to raise the awareness of dementia. Local community events have also been a focus, for example: attendance at the Royal British Legion church service to commemorate the end of WW1; participation in the Kalan Gwav festival, Saltash Regatta, Mayor’s Christmas shop window judging; Christmas Tree festival at St Nicholas & St Faith Church and a Christmas carol service at St Stephen’s Church.
Our field gun crews took part in this year’s Armed Forces Day on Plymouth Hoe. The school choir have taken part in a number of events including performing at Song Fest at the Plymouth Pavilions, St Stephen’s Church Summer Fayre, Drake Circus shopping centre, Waitrose and regular visits to St Anne’s Residential Home.
We also place a lot of emphasis on the cultural heritage of the local community and of Cornwall in general. We address each other in Cornish at the start of assembly, our school motto ‘Degemer an Jydh’ is Cornish for ‘Seize the Day’. Our carol services include carols sung in Cornish and our annual Music of the Afternoon concert features Trelawney, whilst our classes are named after Cornish beaches.
Moreover, we are proud to report that 9 KS2 children won awards at the Saltash Town Youth Awards and for the second year running, the Saltash Young Citizen of the Year is a Brunel pupil, all having been nominated by the academy.
More and more local people are coming in to the school. This includes: Visitors from local churches, an ‘Open the Book’ assembly each term, Royal British Legion, Merchant Navy Captain, Field Gun crew, RNLI, NSPC, TSB bank etc.
