Welcome To Poltair
Welcome to the Poltair School website. I hope that it provides you with a comprehensive introduction to our values, expectations and ways of working.
On Sunday 4th March from 10.30am - 12.30pm Friends of Par Beach were holding their annual Spring Beach Clean and Litter Pick in conjunction with Clean Cornwall and Keep Britain Tidy's 'The Great British Spring Clean', also in support of Surfers Against Sewage (SAS) 'Big Spring Beach Clean'. As all year 7 students will be undertaking a sustainable citizens day based on recycling on Thursday 8th March the schools Eco Squad made up of girls in Year 7, were invited to take part in the beach clean alongside their Year Team Leader and Geography Teacher. It was a fantastic day with parents of the girls and some of their tutors taking part in the event as well, having a huge impact on the Par beach area. Congratulations to Caitlin McGuigan, Lily Jose, Willow Tucker-Smith, Ashley Hammond, Amber Roseveare and Bethan Winn for their efforts.
All year 7 and 8 students participate in the Accelerated reader programme. This involves them reading a book of their choice and quizzing it on the computer. This gives them a score and also tells them how many words they have read. Amazingly we have a student in year 7 who has achieved a million words read this early in the school term.
Willow has read over 1, 200, 000 words since September. To celebrate this achievement Willow has been awarded an Amazon Kindle Fire and certificate.
The books she has read are; Nightmares, Harry Potter Chamber of Secrets, Deathly Hallows, Order of the Phoenix, Cursed Child; Girl Online the series of 3 books; The Isle of the Lost, Terminal, Exposure, Code, Seizure, Virals, 13 Chairs and Private Peaceful.
Congratulations Willow you deserve the reward for your dedication and hard work in reading outside of school.
