Neil and Tina stopped by at Torpoint Nursery and Infant school to meet the School Council to find out about their award winning school.  Some of the children have been to London to meet the Speaker and they have lots of great clubs and activities as well as sports, cooking and support for forces families.

If you missed School Dinners on air, you can listen again:

 
They discuss winning the Speaker's Award and going to London to see the Queen.

 
And healthy eating, and clubs and activities

 
And finally charity work and why their school is so special.


They also have  avery 'different' and very unique Happy Birthday song, which we thought was adorable...have a listen.

 

You can see the photos in the gallery below. 

Happy Summer holidays kids (and teachers!!)!

Birds and the Bees

When is the right time to talk to the kids about the birds and the bees?  Tina's had stage 1 of that conversation with her daughter who's 9.

 

It caused some controversy!

We did promise to be honest about our lives and share ourselves with you on the lifestyle breakfast show. Love Tour

Have a great weekend.  Stithians Show on Monday and then the Love Tour begins on Tuesday in Falmouth Events Square from 6am!

We took the Breakfast Show to Pool Academy

8th July 2014

Outside Broadcast at Pool Academy

So a surreal experience this morning, taking the Breakfast Show to Pool Academy School, 

Outside Broadcast at Pool Academy

at which we broadcast to an empty school hall for 2 hours and then madness ensued as the 800 students arrived for an 'assembly' to watch us, plus they listen to the first play of the Pool Academy students and pupils from Pencoys Primary radio advert, self written, recorded and produced by the students.

The day did get busy however, and it was a privelege to meet so many talented students and staff.

For instance, here's the audio from talented musicians LucyAnna and Teaching Assistant Jack Wallen.

 
Listen to LucyAnna above and find out more on Facebook.

 
To hear more Jack Wallen, listen above or check out his front-garden sessions on Youtube.

When the school turned up, clearly it was madness...in a controlled chaotic way and what well-behaved kids!

Pool Academy and Pencoys Primary

The students, came to Pirate FM to record their radio advert and caught up with Tina....

 

And here's what happened after they'd heard their radio advert for the first time...

 
Well Done creative media stars of the future!
