  Carnegie Competition 
As winners of the 2018 Plymouth Schools’ Carnegie Competition Tor Bridge High were delighted to host this year’s competition. The medal is awarded to the writer of an outstanding book written for children or young people and the Plymouth Schools’ competition shadows the national award. This year the shortlist of wonderful books were allocated to nine participating schools; all of whom delivered confident, entertaining and varied performances. From acting out scenes in the books to original songs and videos the day is always full of surprises and great performances. Tanya Landman the 2015 Carnegie Medal Winner joined us for the day and kindly gave some great advice to our students as well as talking about her writing.
 
Long Way Down by Jason Reynolds was voted the Shadower’s Choice by the Plymouth Schools. The performance by Tor Bridge High on this same book also won ‘Best Performance’. The script, written by Amber, year 12 was superb and the team acted out a faultless performance.
 
Guests to Tor Bridge High were also treated to some additional performances by our students who sang and played throughout the day.
 
The school is incredibly proud of the Carnegie Team.
 

  Empathy Day 

Tor Bridge High Library also assists the other schools on campus; regularly running joint activities such as Book Week and the Elmer project. The Empathy celebrations were no exception and we were delighted to be able to invite Clare Helen Welsh, a picture book author, to come to our library.
 
Ms Welsh ran four wonderfully entertaining workshops for Tor Bridge Primary, Cann Bridge and Plym Bridge Nursery and Day Care. She read her book ‘How Rude!’ to a captivated audience of children. The children then made their own duck puppets.
 
Here Ms Welsh is photographed with Julia Hale from Plymouth Schools’ Library Service, who helped arrange the visit, and our very own library dog, Oliver.
 
 
  Elmer 
This term all four schools on campus have been joining in with a big art project to support St Luke's Hospice. The partnership is one of 25 schools across Plymouth who have been busy designing and painting an Elmer the elephant sculpture.
 
Our elephant has been painted by children ranging from 3 - 16 years and includes lots of wonderful designs in the partnership colours
 
The baby elephant sculptures will be on display to the public at Mount Edgcumbe Park over the summer. Look out for our colourful boy with the Tor Bridge logo eyebrows!
