Ex-Callington school students

Dear Ex-Callington students,

We have a number of events coming up, one of which is very soon and one slightly further away in time. We are also keen for any of you who would like to to come in to talk to our students about what you do either in assemblies or with classes; departments are always very keen to tell our current students about what you are up to.

Recently we have had scientists, artists, train drivers and ship yard apprenticeships who used to attend the college coming in and telling us all about their lives and careers since leaving Callington. We are also, of course, basking in the reflected glory of alumnus Joff Oddie’s sucess with winning the Mercury Music Prize with his band Wolf Alice.

On Thursday 1st┬áNovember we are holding an event for our current Year 11 students who are just about to consider their post-sixteen options. If you were able to attend and talk to our students that would be great. The idea is that small groups (6-10) of Year 11s will carousel around different employers/alumni and further education providers to find out what the future could hold for them. The event is due to run from 8.50am until 11.20. If you can’t make it in person but would like to be involved then there are some options:

1: Perhaps someone in the organisation/company that you work for could come along

2: Perhaps you could make a 30 second video about yourself/your work that we could show.

3: Perhaps your organisation has a promotional video that we could show on the day.

Looking further into the future we another calendered event on 14/02/2018 that I am calling ‘I Love My Job’ which will be aimed at the younger children at the college; again, you, your colleagues or your virtual presence would be great.

Thanks for taking the time to read this; you are an essential part of our college community and we are hugely proud of what you have achieved,

Let me know if you can help or if we can help you in any way,

Best wishes

Jonathon Plunkett
