"I’m in Year 4. I love my school, we’ve got over 400 children here now, but it doesn’t feel like too many. Being set in such great surroundings we can go outside all the time and the good thing is it’s all part of our lessons, our school teaches us the importance of protecting our environment. Because we live nearby, I come here by cycle sometimes, or the walking bus with my best friends"
"I live in Penwithick and I walk over once a week to visit my daughter and look after my grandson. There’s a baby & toddler group in the community hall, and quite a few of my friends go along. It’s a good chance for tea and a chat. I can do some shopping up here too and I’ve even signed up for computer lessons on Monday evenings in the community hall."
"I’m 11 and this year I started in Year 7 at Poltair School. All my friends from around here go too, so we catch the school bus together."
