School updates

REMINDER: Non-Uniform Day

Tomorrow, we will be holding a non-school uniform day to help raise money for Children in Need. We are aware that the actual appeal day as run by the BBC is actually next Friday, however due to Covid-19 restrictions we will not be collecting money at school, and this enables time for donations to be made to the Children in Need website, if you are in a position to do so.

REMINDER: Odd Socks Day - Monday 15th November

Anti-Bullying Week 2021 is happening from Monday 15th – Friday 19th November and has the theme ‘One Kind Word’. It is coordinated by the Anti-Bullying Alliance, which is based at the National Children’s Bureau. In conjunction with The Anti-Bullying Alliance, Bodmin College students and staff will celebrate Odd Socks Day as part of Anti-Bullying Week. Odd Socks Day is an opportunity to have fun, celebrate uniqueness and differences as well as spread awareness of the core values Anti-Bullying Week promotes. All students are invited to wear odd socks (alongside the rest of their usual school uniform) on Monday 15th November only.
