Wall of Fame
Helping us to celebrate achievement at Penryn College.
In 2014, the Wall of Fame was introduced by one of our Student Council members to celebrate contributions and achievements from students, teachers and community members who have shown great effort, skill, or courage. The Council organise regular nominations and voting to update the Wall of Fame twice a year.
Anyone can nominate, and anyone can be nominated: pupils, staff, teams at Penryn College, members of the local community… Even people in the public eye can receive an honorary award.
Last year’s winners have shown one or all of these qualities, which is why they were nominated and chosen by Penryn College students:
- Student Immy Timmins– great skill on cornet
- Student Benno Marstaller – great skill in sailing
- Mrs Oliver – skill and commitment to teaching and mentoring
- Student Chloe Newman – courage and effort caring for sister
- Dave Collins – skill and effort as cross country coach
- Mrs Harries – skill and commitment to teaching and mentoring
- Falmouth Fire Brigade – courage, effort and skill when saving lives
- Year 7&8 and Year 9&10 handball teams – skill and effort in sport
- Stanley’s Friends – courage and effort for a terminally ill boy
Now we are ready to create our third Wall of Fame! The School Council are really keen to hear from anyone who wants to nominate someone who is deserving of recognition for showing great skill, effort or courage (or all three!). Nomination forms can be collected and returned to the box at the top of the stairs, opposite the library and the deadline is 9th January, 2017.
