Cornwall Schools’ Mining Games

24th June 2022

Cornwall Schools’ Mining Games
On Thursday 23 June, a group of eight, Year 8 students participated in the Cornwall Schools’ Mining Games at King Edward Mine.
These students had dedicated some of their lunchtimes, with Dr Ryan and Miss Hawksworth, to hone key mining skills in preparation for the event.
Throughout the day the students competed against other local schools, in several mining practices.
These were; hand steeling, surveying, mineral separation, panning, sawing and mucking. Miss Hawksworth and Mr Dudley were very proud of the
dedication and sportsmanship demonstrated by the Helston Community College students. It was a very enjoyable day and we look forward to participating in next year’s event.
