Tretherras Student Appears on Children in Need


A Newquay Tretherras student appeared on national TV when she was interviewed on Children in Need as part of the Cornwall Girls Choir.

Large choirs of schoolchildren from around the country sang ‘I’ll Stand By You’ live on the BBC fundraising show, before which, Year 10 student Samantha Casey spoke to the presenters about singing as part of the group.

Samantha, along with her school friends Daisy Dewey, Amanda Fisher and Kayja Walker held a cake sale, a ‘guess the amount of jelly beans in a jar’ game and a name the teddy competition, raising just short of £50 towards the charity.

Samantha said, “It was exciting taking part in the event, but really nerve-racking at the same time having to talk on television in front of millions of viewers. It makes you feel so proud to be part of something so incredible.”
