Prep Head’s Blog: 21 October 2016

A huge thank you to all those who attended our Harvest Festival celebration at Truro School Chapel on the 9th October. It was a lovely occasion, complemented by the choir’s rendition of A Birthday (Singing Bird) by Christina Rossetti.

Tuesday night saw many of our community at Hall for Cornwall where thirty of our pupils, from Years 3 – 6, performed a remarkable interpretation of Henry V, as part of the Shakespeare Schools Festival. The children were incredible; they spoke clearly, acted convincingly and made their parents and teachers very proud indeed. Thank you to all who supported the occasion by attending, helping with costumes and generally being an encouragement to the project. The cast will be performing to the rest of the school on Friday. Please look on our website to view some of the images from the rehearsal sessions.

Our School Council has been busy at work organising our first whole-school charity event. Our ‘Big Spotacular Day’ will take place on Friday 18th November in support of Children in Need. Pupils in Years 3 – 6 will be invited to wear their ‘home’ clothes on the day but to dress in their house colours and to wear spots; please be as creative as you can! Children in Pre-prep will be following the spotty theme and will be wearing their ‘home’ clothes. Staff will also be getting involved and all will be asked to donate £1 to the charity. During lunch time there will be a range of activities such as guessing how many ‘Pudseys’/sweets are in a jar, as well as a raffle and the opportunity to buy some Children in Need accessories. After school, the children will be involved in a cupcake sale to raise further funds for the charity.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a restful and happy half-term, full of family time and fun.
