Storylines connects with PK Porthcurno and Sennen School

Posted on: 26th October 2020 No Comments

Storylines is delighted to be collaborating with PK Porthcurno to deliver an off- shoot of the Kemeneth project to children from year 2, 3 and 4 at Sennen School.

Using some of the fascinating archival objects and documents from PK Porthcurno as a starting point, Storylines have been busy creating some very special packs, which will soon be winging their way to Sennen School. Inspired by the uniformed Messenger Boys, who delivered telegrams by bicycle or foot, children will become ‘Messengers,’ sharing their own stories and collecting stories from their families and friends. Children will explore themes such as belonging, kindness, community, communication and connection, as well as learning about local history of the cables that travelled around the world from Porthcurno and Sennen.

When we come to put together the community book in Sennen, it’ll be lovely to have children’s responses sit alongside some of the memories that we hope will be contributed by the wider community through the Kemeneth story-sharing packs. On this note there are still a few packs left so if you, or someone you know would be interested in getting one, please do get in touch and we can deliver it to you.

Storylines would like to thank PK Porthcurno for supporting this project and Sennen School for their enthusiasm and willingness to get involved.

The wider Kemeneth Project is funded by FEAST and the Coronavirus Community Support Fund, distributed by The National Lottery Community Fund.
