Silver Stories is the initiative started in our school where children telephone a Silver Listener (an elderly person in Torpoint and then read a short story or poem to them). This not only helps the children to become more confident in their reading skills but also links our children to the elderly community in Torpoint and helps diminish their chances of feeling loneliness and isolation.
On 21st December, Mrs Sarah Coryton, High Sheriff of Cornwall; hosted a Christmas lunch for a group of our Silver Listeners at Pentillie Castle.
Children from our school took part in the festive pre lunch singing before reading two Christmas Stories, " 'Twas the Night Before Christmas" and " Little Owl and The Star".
It was a wonderful festive occasion enjoyed by young and old alike. We are thrilled that BBC Spotlight were there to capture the event and share it on their evening news.
