On Tuesday 16th October, many guests and students gathered in The Core for the official opening.
There was a warm atmosphere as ICT students demonstrated equipment and students marveled at how much the space had changed. Mr Parker starting proceedings by saying how it was a place for Students to maximise their learning. Students who were responisble for choosing the design, the furniture, the colour scheme and even the name.
David Linnell OBE, and CEO of Cornwall College, formally welcomed everybody to The Core by unveiling a plaque, which celebrated the official opening. It was a huge milestone in Penrice’s history. The area is already being put to good use with the amount of students using the computers and taking out books skyrocketing!
Also making a debut this term , is the college’s new dining area. It has been turned from a dark, miserable room into one of the best in the school. The space is now a light, clean, spacious area which is a pleasure to use. The whole school will benefit from The Core and the Canteen in many ways and it is a great asset to the College.
