Steel Roses support annual charity.
This year's Joe Way Paddle for life was hailed another success after an
amazing turn out
The weather had a wet start during the set up but was at its best as the town
along with holiday makers turned out in force to support the annual fundraiser.
Newquay band, Steel Appeal, were joined by Roseland Community College's band,
Steel Roses, who played on the beach as families enjoyed picnics and watched
the action unfold.
This year's event saw a footfall of over a thousand spectators for the second
year running and nearly 400 paddlers of all ages and abilities taking part in
the 200m, 1km fun paddle, 1km relays and the RNLI memorial cup to do their bit
to raise money for some of the 20 charities now supported by the Joe Way
Organiser, Matt Way said "As always the support was huge and after fearing a
poor turn out whilst setting up in the rain we had the busiest event to date,
I'm sure Joe would be very proud of what has been achieved in his memory".

Super six runners up in county beach cricket.
Matt Bray, Fred Burr, Jack Pearce, Alfie Flack, Lewis
Grant and Sam Townsend produced some fantastic cricket to reach the finals of
the 2014 competition at Perranporth beach.
After losing their opening game to Camborne the lads
regrouped and targeted fielding and bowling as the main areas to improve. They
did this exceptionally well and went unbeaten for the next five matches and only
have 9 runs away to Newquay Tretheras in the semi-final. The runs were knocked
off quickly and the boys faced Camborne again in the final. This time it was
the batting that struggled and we just didn't quite score enough runs batting
first. Camborne completed the run chase with an over to spare after some tight
bowling early in the Camborne innings.
The boys win a set of soft cricket kit which will
hopefully be used at lunchtimes to inspire the next generation of cricketers at
Roseland Students Win Prizes in CreatEd Exhibition & Cornwall School Games Creative Competitions!
We are delighted to announce that four Roseland students have won some prestigious prizes this term in various competitions and summer exhibitions across the county. As part of the cultural contribution to this year's Cornwall School Games, three creative competitions took place earlier this term involving primary and secondary schools in the Truro and Roseland area.
Well done to all students who submitted entries for the Creative Writing, Photography and T-shirt Design competitions, and our congratulations go to prize winners Bethanie Clayton in Year 11, who won 2nd prize for photography, and Year 11 Chloe West who achieved Highly Commended, also for photography. Their work was displayed at the Cornwall School Games cultural celebration, which took place at the Burrell Theatre in Truro on the evening of Thursday 26th June, and looked fantastic!
The college also exhibited selected works by GCSE Art, Photography and Music students in this year's CreatEd exhibition at University College Falmouth. GCSE work was invited from secondary schools across the county and was beautifully displayed in the Design Centre at the Tremough campus between 26th and 28th June. Staff, parents and students were invited to attend a private view and awards ceremony on Thursday 26th June and The Roseland received many positive comments for this year's stunning display of work. Our congratulations go to all students who took part, and especially to Year 11 students Maria Squire, who won 2nd prize for photography, and Olivia Brown, who won 3rd prize for her music composition.
