My visit to Portreath Primary School

14/09/2017

It was bright and sunny this afternoon when I arrived at Portreath Community Primary School.

This was the last school assembly I was scheduled to visit to promote my fab competition. I need to find a designer, reporter, presenter and engineer  to help me launch back into space on September 28th.

On my way into the school I saw a lovely stone statue of a frog which I just had to get a selfie with before I went inside.

Once inside I met the Head teacher Mrs Pamplin and she showed me the beautiful Kindness Tree on the wall in the hall.

All the children recognised me as soon as I came in through the door. It was brilliant they remembered me. I last visited them in June when we showed the video of my space adventure.

Miss Meakin told everyone that Phil, who talked to the pupils about me, liked to be called Head Geek. This caused some laughter.

She also said that Portreath was the fifth school we had visited this week!

She hoped they would all be able to enter the competition in time because the deadline, September 19th, seems to be getting closer and closer.

It was also revealed this afternoon that whoever wins the presenter section of the competition will follow my journey in the minibus and collect me from where I land. It’ll be nice to have a friendly face to take me home.

More than half the pupils in the assembly put their hands up to say they wanted to take part in our competition which made me happy.

I can’t wait to see all the brilliant ideas everyone has for my next mission.

Mrs Pamplin, Portreath Primary School head teacher said: “Portreath Primary School can’t wait to take part in this exciting competition.”

Mrs Pamplin, Head Teacher, said the children were excited to hear about Buzz and his competition.
