Great News at Delabole School

Perhaps one of the most monumental events in the life of

any school is when they undergo an Ofsted Inspection.

Although these inspections last only one or two days, they

are so significant in terms of validating the quality of

provision for the children and the core school business of

‘learning’, that a great deal of intense work happens

beneath the day to day routines of the school over that

period. Equally, it is not just a measure of provision on

those days, but the culmination of so much work and

steadfastness over the years. And of course the staff care

so much.

For full story turn to page 3.

Another busy month. Don’t forget the 10th, 11th and 12th,

when our village will be holding its Remembrance

Commemorations.

Also, Father Christmas makes his first appearance in the

village on November 18th at St John’s Bazaar.

Congratulations to the winners of last month’s colouring

competition - Harvey Dingle and Jake Hammond.

Macmillan Coffee Morning

Thank you to all those who came

along to the Methodist Schoolroom

and supported the event or took part

in the raffle.

It was lovely to see people who are new to the village, we

do hope you settle in and enjoy all that Delabole has to

offer.

So many of us have cause to be thankful for the work that

Macmillan does and this Coffee Morning provided an

opportunity to enjoy some cake and company and

contribute to the funds.

£317.40 has been sent to Macmillan.

SLATE DONATIONS

Many thanks to the generous folk who have left some

Delabole Primary School

(Continued from front page)

So on the 27 th and 28 th of September it was the turn of Delabole School to be assessed against very stringent criteria

under the following headings:

• Effectiveness of leadership and management

• Quality of teaching, learning and assessment

• Personal development, behaviour and welfare

• Outcomes for pupils

• Early Years provision

I am so delighted to share with you the judgements made by the inspection team. Delabole is now a ‘Good’ school –

and scored a ‘good’ against each of the measures. This is not easy to achieve.

Some highlights from the report include:

‘The school’s enquiry-based curriculum is inspirational for pupils…Learning is stimulating and varied, memorable and

meaningful.’

‘Disadvantaged pupils and those who have special educational needs/and or disabilities make good progress, because

teaching is well matched to their needs.’

The school has ‘created a culture of high ambition and aspiration for pupils and staff alike. All parents who responded

to Ofsted’s online questionnaire, Parent View, said that the school is well-led and managed,’

‘Pupils’ attitudes to learning are consistently positive. This has a strong impact on the progress they make.’

Those of you who have followed the history of the school will know what an immense achievement this is for our

community, as in the past, the school has come through periods of instability and tricky times. It means so much to the

staff and is a well-deserved validation of all that they bring to the lives of the children: – care, humour, inventiveness,

excitement, self-belief, open-mindedness, resilience, joy and so much more. And of course, the support of the parents

is so much a part of the partnership around the nurture of the children. We felt the full force of that during the inspection.

Thank you, thank you.

When I first arrived in Delabole two years ago, I wrote in our Slate contribution that ‘Delabole Community Primary School

is not my school – it is our school’. Now at last, we can all celebrate the little piece of the school’s success that each of

us owns and feel proud as we look forward to the future.

Sue Cox and the team.

Termyn Gwari Fleghes

(children’s playtime, in Cornish)

November is often cloudy, wet and windy and starts to get quite cold too,

so that being outside is not much fun at all. We tend to stay indoors by the

fire, enjoying the warmth and light. We are really missing summer and there

seems to be nothing happening out in the gardens and woods. It’s true the

woods, fields and gardens are very quiet and still, all the plants are resting,

no insects or bugs to be seen, often not many birds. Now is the time to

really start feeding your garden birds. Food is starting to get scarce, and

if you can put out seeds, peanuts, fat balls and scraps, the garden birds

will have a much easier time through the winter. If we do get frosty, icy

weather, don’t forget to put out water as well. Birds need to drink as well.

Something to look forward to in November is Bonfire Night! Huge bonfire,

jacket potatoes, toffee, fireworks! What’s not to like? Well quite a lot if you

are an animal. Hedgehogs will get into the bonfire pile because it seems

like a good place to hibernate, so check the bonfire before you light it. Pets

hate loud noises, so on Bonfire night keep them safe indoors, where they

can feel safe. It’s important to only let off fireworks on Bonfire night, or let

your neighbours know what is happening otherwise their pets could be

outside and be very scared.

A just for fun November wordsearch. 14 words hidden here: loud, fast,

potato.. to start you off.

Cornwall Councillor

The Boundary Commission has now decided on the

preferred number of Cornwall Councillors to contest the

2021 local elections. The number will be reduced from the

current 123 to 87. This will obviously reflect what they

consider a changing role for Cornwall Councillors with

much more emphasis on the work done at County Hall and

much less on local work within the parishes with an

enhanced role for Parish Councils.

This was not something that I personally supported.

The average number of constituents for each councillor will

now be around 5000, but perhaps more importantly will be

the increase in area and parishes that they represent.

Work will now begin on the mapping and there is a

consultation process until February which you may or may

not wish to use to make your own views known.

87 was chosen as this was the best fit around the

Community Network Areas and Delabole falls within the

Camelford Community Network Area along with

St Teath, Michaelstow, St Breward, Advent, Camelford,

Tintagel, Davidstow, Forrabury & Minster, Lesnewth,

Otterham, St Clether, Tremaine, Treneglos, Tresmeer,

Trevalga & Warbstow.

This area is currently served by three

County Councillors and will be reduced in 2021 to two.

There are two possible ways of dividing the area to

maintain a broadly equal number of constituents within the

guidelines. One would be to simply add Tintagel to the

current St Teath and St Breward seat which I

represent. The other would be to add

St Teath & Delabole to the current Tintagel seat which

stretches out to Otterham.

The Commissions consultation material asks residents

these questions:

· Do you have suggestions about where your

division boundaries should be?

· Which areas do you identify as your local

community?

· Where do people in your area go to access local

facilities such as shops and leisure activities?

If you have any strong views on this please do get in touch

with me and I can help make sure that your views are

known to the Boundary Commission.

Big Brew Up 2017

In 1885, Col Sir James Gildea, after seeing the problems

servicemen and their families suffered following various

wars, started the Soldiers Sailors Families Association to

help them. In 1919 it became Soldiers Sailors and Airmen

Families Association (ssafa)

and has been working for the

men and women who served

in the various armed forces.

Today there are 7,000

volunteers helping 90,000

men, women and families from

WW2 to present day who need

some sort of assistance.

To do this they need money,

so for many years they have

been holding The Big Brew

and this is the first time

SSAFA County President

Alistair Ross

Delabole has hosted the event.

Two caseworkers, Mrs Judith

Kenealy from St Teath and Mr

Cameron Valentine from Delabole, organised the day and

with the help of other Caseworkers who had provided

cakes and other delicious edibles and many prizes for the

raffle.

The day was thoroughly enjoyed by all and has raised

£400 towards helping Cornwall branch to continue with

their valuable work. The organisers said that they would

like to thank the residents of Planet Park, Delabole and

Rosewater Park, St Teath, the Poldark Inn and all local

residents and businesses for their valuable assistance and

support.

Hip, hip, hooray,

we’ve had Music Day

Hope you enjoyed the continual

music-making between 10am and

5pm when kind musicians from

around the area shared their talents.

There were charity stalls selling Christmas cards and

goodies and people popping in and out throughout the

day - but lunchtime was especially popular when there

were delicious soups and sweets on offer.

Obviously tea or coffee was available at all times,

although we didn’t use a kettle this year, but the very

efficient and much-appreciated boiling water heater

bought in memory of John Lugg. Afternoon tea was

luscious with jam and cream splits, cakes and buns. Many

thanks to all who provided the tempting fare and worked

so hard throughout the day.

Also. there were plenty of donation jars around so that

we could make a good contribution to this year’s charity,

which was Treliske’s

Cornwall Birth and Baby Appeal.

Not sure of the exact amount yet but I think most of the

stalls took in the region of £100 and the whole event

raised in excess of £1000 for the various charities.

Pigeon peas

Harvest

Had a good time celebrating Harvest

Festival this year, when once again it was

a joint celebration between the Methodist

and Anglican congregations and it

focused on the Christian Aid theme

centring on Malawi under the title, ‘God

is working His Purpose Out’.

Morning worship was at St John’s and

was led by Rev Bryan and Mrs Sue

Wilcox.

As well as hymns and readings, we learnt

about Pigeon Peas which have been introduced as an

ideal crop to thrive in Malawi. We handled these peas and

were fortunate enough to have them included in one of the

salads served at a delicious lunch in the Church.

To round off the day, we gathered together in the evening

at the chapel for a varied time of hymns old and new,

readings and musical items with Maria Nicholls at the

organ and Stuart Biddick at the piano. During the service,

2 water heaters, funded by donations in memory of our

friend John Lugg, were dedicated and were put to good

use at the end of the evening.

The service was led by Clare Salzmann and Rev Bryan,

whilst Sue Ede produced a very meaningful Powerpoint

to guide our thinking.

The offerings and lunch donations came to £370.11

and this has been sent to Christian Aid for use in Malawi,

whilst the tinned goods were taken to the FoodBank at

Wadebridge.

Tintagel Orpheus Male Voice Choir.

The choir is taking an Autumn break after a busy spring

(when we did so well at The International Festival) and

summer, with numerous concerts, including our series of

5 Summer Concerts. Our thanks go out to our loyal

supporters, and many visitors, who made these

concerts such a success.

We are moving towards December, when we have three

popular events planned.

Firstly, our Annual Choir Dinner, where we also sing,

hopefully before a hefty meal!

This will be at Bowood Golf Club on Friday, 1 st December

at 7pm. Friends and supporters are welcome, tickets can

be had from our secretary John Sadler.

Sunday, 3 rd December finds us at Tintagel Methodist

Church for the Annual Christmas Concert. Please come

along, no tickets needed, and join in the carol singing with

us.

Now, advanced details of our increasingly popular

Christmas Concert at The Camelot Castle Hotel. This

will be on Saturday, 23 rd December, (Tom Bowcock’s Eve),

6.30pm for 7pm start. Again this year it will be a ticket only

event, so come early to secure a good seat.

Tickets for dinner and Camelot Castle can be had from

John Sadler on 01840 212583.

Enquiries regarding seating for the disabled should be

made direct to the hotel.

Any general enquiries to our Chairman, Bob Metters

on 01840 213736.

Again, many thanks for all your support of your local

Male Voice Choir.

A Methodist Minister’s View

When we reach the month of November with the clocks

having been changed to Greenwich Mean Time and the

darker mornings and evenings I feel that we have really

entered into the winter months. November also brings to

us Armistice Day and Remembrance Sunday on

November 11 th and 12 th . Within our local communities

these days will be marked with Acts of Remembrance and

special Services at War Memorials and in Churches.

Remembrance Sunday this year has an additional

significance in that it marks the centenary of the end of

the Battle of Passchendaele as it is known in France, or

the Third Battle of Ypres as it is known in the West

Flanders region of Northern Belgium. The Menin Gate in

Ypres records of the names of 54,896 British and

Commonwealth Soldiers with no known grave who were

killed in the Ypres area. The Service and sacrifice of our

British and Commonwealth Soldiers is so significant to

our Belgian friends that they have a Last Post Ceremony

every day at the Menin Gate.

The question on my mind as I write is whether we

appreciate enough the Sacrifice and Service of those who

have served in our Armed Forces?

I was interested to hear Prince Harry say at the Invictus

Games in Toronto this year that he was moved to action

by his experience on one of his journeys home from the

War Front. He recalled seeing the coffins of dead

personnel, and injured persons who were in comas being

loaded on the plane which was bringing him and others

back to the United Kingdom. At that point he realised the

cost of War, the need to help the injured and families who

had experienced the loss of loved ones, and the need to

keep peace making to the fore.

Prince Harry has firsthand experience of War and its

consequences, and is active in ensuring the needy are

helped and in promoting peace. It seems to me that

observing Armistice Day or Remembrance Sunday is a

contribution to this that can involve us all in showing our

gratitude, contributing to the Welfare Work and the

promotion of peace.

In my Good News translation of The Bible, Jesus is quoted

as saying “Happy are those who work for peace; God will

call them his children.” (Matthew 5:9)

Every Blessing, Bryan Ede

Hope for Girls

Four years ago I was visiting a friend from London who had

bought a Ranch out in Kenya . During the visit my friend took

me to see a school that they built and supported. Imagine my

surprise when I came to a classroom door with the words " This

classroom was built by the generosity of the people of St.

Breward, Cornwall, U.K.

This little school has made a world of difference to the children

growing up there and I was suitably impressed.

I have since become involved in the building of a school for girls

in Freetown, Sierra Leone. Money was raised to build and they

were all set to open when the Ebola crisis hit the area. The

project was delayed for 2 yrs, but the founder did not give up

and has managed to open the doors this September to 25 girls

who would otherwise have no education whatsoever. Now of

course the hard work begins to raise enough funds to keep the

school open.

Is it possible that the people of Delabole could help ?

If any individuals or groups feel that they could sponsor a girl

please get in touch with me Sue Johnson on 07950342149 .

Any ideas for fundraising would be greatly appreciated.
