I went to the Penzance Expo 2018 to see the plan for our
Old School now known as Polwithen House. Basically the Nursery
will be moved to the cottages and this will be completed
by September 2019.
The new Junior block at the back of the school will become
a Health and Well being Hub including hydrotherapy pool,
small gym, exercise studio, treatment and consultation rooms,
physiotheraphy and healthcare education spaces.
Phase 2 completion 2020 - The refurbishment of the main
house offering apartments for rent and sale, public rooms
for community use, a garden kitchen restaurant, cafe and
communal landscaped gardens. I understand the cafe, restaurant,
gardens are all being open to the public so if you are ever
down in Cornwall it may be worth popping in for a coffee
after 2020! I understood from their representative yesterday
that the Chapel will remain. All the small additional buildings
will be removed and the house will be brought back to its
Phase 3 completion 2023. Building clusters of homes and
apartments with some residential care use on the old games
area. This will service approximately 100 further residents.
Archives Sue Jennie and I have been into the Polwithen
House and made a record of all the photos, and memorabilia
of the House and School. Hopefully some of this material
will be on display when the house is refurbished. Sue has
got the St Clare Statue restored and we will keep you updated
on any further developments. Wendy
Sue has had the St Clare Statue restored by Jill Bray and
we sent a gift to of a subscription to visit Art Exhibitions
and we have had this letter of thanks to the Alumni:-
a wonderful surprise and how extremely generous of you!
I have never indulged in a National Art Pass and we will
have such fun using it. It was particularly thoughtful of
you to make it a Plus One card as John is as
interested in art as I am and will very much enjoy sharing
the expeditions. Its also appropriate as he did rather
more of the plaster work than I did! We are planning a trip
to London later this Autumn so our card will get plenty
of use then. I do hope St. Clare eventually manages to live
back in the school chapel, a place of which I was very fond.
I loved a large, very quiet painting of St Clare which,
sadly, was sold - I did plead that she should have stayed
but I fear it was felt she was no longer of the moment!
I am rather embarrassed to accept such generous payment
as I am not a professional restorer although I will admit
to many an hour being spent on her! Thank you again and
good luck with your future plans.Jill
