Star Student: Kathryn, Year 9

On Saturday 5th September, AFC St Austell Poltair Park hosted this year’s Gorsedh Kernow ceremony. Alongside the initiation of 20 new bards and the presentation of Gorsedh Kernow’s special awards, competition winners were presented with prizes across a number of entries.

Amongst them was this week’s Star Student, Kathryn Taplin in Year 9, nominated by Mr Lahram. She was a proud winner of the Treneer Shield, having won the class on A Cornish Subject: 12 to 17 years with her original poem, ‘Kernow Calls’.
