Penryn Primary Newsletter - Spring 2024

Penryn Primary Academy
Spring Term 2024
Head of School Welcome

Welcome to our spring term newsletter.

It has been another term full of trips, experiences, visitors and exciting topics in all of our classes!

Alongside all this amazing learning, we have also said farewell and good luck to both Mrs Duckham and Mrs Meredew, who have both embarked on their own adventures, by beginning their maternity leave.

We have also taken part in the Aspire Trust’s Connect 40 Relay Challenge, which raised nearly £5,000 for Comic Relief and the Youth Sports Trust – thank you for all of your generous donations, which contributed to this amazing total.

We also shared our plans for launching the ‘Penryn Passport’ and the exciting opportunity all our pupils have in taking part in the sticker design competition! I can’t wait to see all the incredible ideas I know our amazing children will come up with.

We ended the term with one of my favourite events, the ‘Spring Show’! Once again, we were blown away by the incredible entries and the immense effort that went into each one. Thank you for your support with this event.

I wish all of you a restful Easter break and look forward to welcoming you back on Monday 15th April.

Best wishes,
Mr Lee
