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’.
This week, we took all of the pupils to St. Wenna church in Morval. This is the church linked to our school and with the help of the volunteers at the church, the pupils learned all about Christmas in the church and also some wonderful information about St. Wenna herself. One of the highlights was when Mike explained about the Millenium window. It is dedicated to St. Wenna and there is an amazing image of her in the central window of the triptych that changes as you move closer to it or further away. It was designed by a local artist and also includes the red cross of Trenode CofE School because it is the only school that serves the parish in which it sits.
It was quite some feat getting all of the children to the church in the minibus, down some very narrow lanes, but it was worth it. The children enjoyed singing together and we have decided to look at adopting and adapting a song about St. Wenna as our school song for the future. A lovely way to learn about our church.
