The Mermaid Centre: Our wonderful Puffins teacher, Mrs Ruth Fisher, has been undergoing treatment for cancer and we are passionately raising money in order to thank The Mermaid Centre for their first class ongoing care.
We have arranged a programme of events, including a pyjama day, sponsored coastal walk, big community breakfast, an Asda day and the sale of mermaid themed tea towels (using images created by the children themselves).
The Ferry Boat Inn, Helford Passage
The Ferry Boat Inn have been most supportive with regard to our fundraising quest. They are allowing us to use their venue to celebrate the completion of our Ramble for Ruth. We are able to sell our own cakes and place fundraising buckets within the premisis. We are very grateful for their positivity and supportive nature. The use of their fantastic inn will help us raise yet more money for the wonderful Mermaid Centre. In the summer months, the Ferry Boat is a great location for Mabe parents to spend time whilst their offspring are sailing around the Helford River.
Penryn College: We have strong links with Penryn College, who this year have provided specialist input for PE and music. Pupils have this year taken part in a collaborative performing arts project (Wind in the Willows) at Penryn College along with other Penryn Partnership schools.
Our local Parish Church of Mabe Burnthouse is dedicated to St Laudus - in the Anglican Diocese of Truro and County of Cornwall, England. Overlooking Argal Lake, the 15th Century church is situated on an ancient site of worship in a stunning location. If you'd like to visit the church on weekdays please call or text 07952691380 and they will do their best to accommodate you!
It is a small friendly community at St Laudus. Their regular services are mostly on Sunday mornings at 9.30am and you are warmly invited whether you are suited and booted or you prefer jeans and T-shirts; whether you are deeply religious or searching for something; whether you are gay, straight, lesbian, bisexual or transgendered; whether you are rich or poor, tall or short, old or young ... most of these are already represented there so you’re in good company!
Flicka Foundation: The donkey rescue centre is located within a mile of the school. There are opportunities to visit the sanctuary, which will help the children to understand the importance of treating all animals with care and respect.

Mabe Youth and Community Project: The MYCP provides some of Mabe’s best recreational facilities. It owns and runs the Community Hall, the newly developed children’s play area and the skate park (all located in Cunningham Park, next door to the school). Together with the school, MYCP also owns and runs the playing field. MYCP is a registered charity. We are fortunate to be able to use the MYCP car park as a drop-off base before and after school. This allows for safer, off road parking.
