A Special Maritime Museum Visit!

11 October 2023

This month saw our Year 7 students participate in a range of fantastic, sustainable future-themed activities at the National Maritime Museum, Falmouth!

The Falmouth Harbour’s Free Schools Engagement Day – run in conjunction with Cornwall Marine Academy – allowed pupils the opportunity to hear from the Ocean Conservation Trust, the RNLI, and Cornwall Marine Network about contributing towards a sustainable future.

Students enjoyed a huge range of fantastic activities run by the organisations involved, including a rock pool observation, the chance to experience sea rescue vehicles, and a sea grass seed planting challenge!

The students were fully engaged throughout the day, making lots of enquiries and volunteering informed responses to questions. They were all excellent ambassadors for Penryn College!

A big thank you to everyone involved in providing our pupils with such a brilliant, insightful experience!
