A Celebration of Sport event held at Pencalenick School, Truro, recently saw a thrilling conclusion to the first Cornish Pirates ‘One & All’ programme.
The programme was aimed at providing enjoyable sporting experiences for the Cornish community through strong links with the Special Partner Trust, who have schools located around the county at Curnow School, Doubletrees School, Nancealverne School and Pencalenick School.
The children have experienced fun and interactive coaching sessions that have honed skills, and at Pencalenick School there were several Cornish Pirates players present. Those in attendance were Matt Bolwell, Danny Cutmore, Rhodri Davies, Dan Frost and Rory Parata, who led various skill and activity zones with the children.

Chris Brigg, Senior PE Teacher at Pencalenick School. said:
The programme was a great success. Our young people really benefitted from high quality coaching and social interaction from the Pirates Team. I am looking forward to working with Sam in the future and growing the programme to engage a larger number of pupils.
Guy Chappell, Executive Director of the Special Partnership Trust, added:
Developing a Multi-Academy Trust has given us the opportunity to develop numerous shared resources and opportunities, thus enabling as many pupils as possible to experience and participate in different curriculum activities together. Working with the Cornish Pirates provides such an opportunity and it was fantastic to see pupils from across the Trust Schools learning and enjoying the activities together. We are very much looking forward to working with the Cornish Pirates in the very near future and encouraging many more pupils to participate.
