St Piran’s Day Truro
Milly and Flo travelled to Dublin, Ireland with the Byrne Black Belt Academy last weekend to compete at the WAKO Irish Open International kickboxing competition. This is the largest martial arts competition in the world with over 4000 competitors from across the globe.
Flo had some tough fights against girls from Germany, USA and Ireland and managed to come away with two bronze medals. Milly entered three categories, – 42kg, – 47kg and +47kg. She fought girls from Germany, Greece, USA, Ireland, Scotland, Wales and Italy. Milly won gold in two categories and silver in the +47kg category.
This week KS1 started off their Pirate topic with an exciting trip to the Maritime museum. We learnt all about pirate treasure and where it came from. We looked at pirate weapons and (carefully) held a pistol and a cutlass! We also made our own pirate ships and sailed them! It was a great day out and a fabulous stimulus for this term’s work. We have lots more to find out about!
To celebrate the end of our learning about India, KS1 took part in an extremely colourful (and messy!) Holi festival. They threw coloured powder into the air, and then at each other to celebrate friendship, fun and the colours of spring. Thank you to all the parents for providing the spare clothes and doing the extra washing and baths! The children and teachers had a wonderful time and all the mess was well worth it!
On Tuesday, our 12 qualifiers from last week’s Penair cross-country event took part in the Mid-Cornwall finals, held at Pool Academy.
Representing the Penair cluster, Bosvigo runners got off to the best start with Hannah winning the Year 4 girls race ahead of 50-60 other runners. With the top 15 finishers qualifying for the Cornwall finals at Newquay next month, we were delighted to see another four runners book their places in the final competition – well done to Cara, Mali, Jasper and Elsie.
With around 60 children in each race and hundreds of adults cheering the runners on, this was a tough but brilliant experience for all 12 of our qualifiers. Well done to all and thank you our Bosvigo parents for their great support.
Our Netball team played their final match in the league this week at Penair school, against Archbishop Benson. It was a nail-biting game to watch! After a slow start, ABB were in the lead 2-0 after the first quarter. By half time Bosvigo had scored 2 goals to equalise. Both teams were equally matched, defending and attacking well and taking turns to take the lead! ABB pipped us at the post with a 6-5 win at full time. Well done to all the team who played brilliantly- Milly, Elsie, Aurie, Amelia, Iris and Thea.
On Wednesday, some students from Bosvigo School went to the Aviation Centre in Newquay for the Fly to the Line glider-making competition. There were three teams from Bosvigo at the event, representing Classes 9, 10 and 11.
The challenge day involved designing, making and testing a glider made from foam board. At the end of the day, there was a competition to see which gliders could fly the furthest. The room was tense, with each team allowed three flights. The three Bosvigo teams did really well, with the Blue Breeze team coming third overall and qualifying for the national finals in Illchester at the end of March!
It was an extremely fun day and we will remember it forever.

On Friday we took 40 children from Years 4, 5 and 6 to Penair for a local schools’ cross-country competition. All the children involved put in their best efforts and 12 children qualified for the mid-Cornwall finals – our biggest representation at that level yet. Well done to all our runners for completing a tough course and congratulations in particular to our medal-winning runners Hannah (2nd in Year 4 girls), Jasper (2nd in Year 4 boys) and Elsie (3rd in Year 6 girls).
Bosvigo School, along with people with Cornish links all over the world, will be celebrating Saint Piran’s Day on Tuesday 5th March. On this day, everyone is invited to wear Cornish colours to school (white, black and yellow) instead of school uniform. Bring your flags and bunting if you like. Kernow bys vyken!
