On Tuesday 9th February Dame Esther Rantzen, DBE who is a founder of both ChildLine and The Silver Line came to our school to officially launch our Silver Stories initiative.
Silver Stories is a new project set up by Torpoint Nursery and Infant School to support both the children and elderly people in the community of Torpoint
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.
