On Monday 20 January 2020, Truro School celebrated its 140th birthday!
As a community we marked this 140th year in several ways – from planting 140 trees around the campus, sponsoring and adding our own touches to the “Hedgehog Roundabout” and producing a digital collage of how Truro School pupils, past and present, and staff have followed John Wesley’s quote “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as ever you can.”
There was a Thanksgiving Service for the whole school at 2pm on 20 January. Alumni from the 40’s to the present day addressed pupils, briefly, on the recollections of school life before cutting our birthday cake. Following this service, the Sixth Former’s arranged a party for all pupils during which they will take part in some fun games and activities.
The day’s charitable funds will be donated to Shelterbox who are working closely with their local contacts in Australia, including Rotary and the Australian Red Cross, to understand the kind of support they might be able to offer families who have lost their homes. They are also currently working to support families who have lost their homes in Syria, responding to tropical storms and an earthquake in the Philippines, and disasters in Ethiopia and Somaliland.
We are excited to celebrate in the following ways
