Courageous Advocates

 "Love you neighbour as yourself"  Mark 12: 29-31.  Courageous advocacy is hard to help the children to understand but we have been helping the children to recognise that life is full of ups and downs and this part has not been difficult given our current circumstances as we travel our way through a global pandemic.  However it is harder for some than for others and we have been talking about how people will face challenges that they will need help and support to overcome.  As Trenode Primary aims to be Deeply Christian and Serve the Common Good, we help the children to develop a love of serving their community.  One of the ways that we can do this is through our charitable work.  It is not just about giving money and having some fun as a thank you; it is about understanding the impact of the donations for others.  With £51.50 raised for Children in Need and a similar amount for Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children, we continue to be proud of all of the work that the children are involved in to develop their understanding of courageous advocacy. Hopefully, they will go on to Serve the Common Good in ways of their own and with full understanding of the love, care and community spirit that this brings.  Well done everyone!

Trenode is a small but growing primary school situated between Liskeard and Looe. Extensive grounds allow for a range of outdoor learning experiences; we also have spacious indoor facilities, including a music room. A nurturing, family ethos, in mixed-age classes, enables our pupils to be challenged as individuals.

‘Reach beyond your grasp’ is our motto at Trenode. We would like all children to aspire further than they think they can! We are on a ‘Visible Learning’ journey, with the other schools in Bridge Schools, which is empowering our pupils to be able to discuss their learning and progress, understanding their ‘next steps’.
