Junior Boys’ Boarding Blog- 1 October

October 2, 2017

It's fair to say that this week has been another busy week at Truro School, with our boarding community right at the heart of it. Just at the point on Thursday when pupils were tiring (and likely one or two staff), our boarders arrived on the scene in the Quad with tables laden with cakes, buns, cookies and muffins, all lovingly baked in our boarding...

It has been a week of celebrations in Pentreve this week. On Monday it was Melanie’s birthday so late on Sunday night Miss Hope decorated her bedroom door, the stairs and the common room. We had a rousing rendition of Happy Birthday at morning roll call and Melanie received presents from the other girls as well as those from her family kept ready for the big day! In the evening we had lots of...

There was a buzz around the games room on Friday night with the pool table in use throughout the evening. You can see from the picture that we also have installed our projector screen and speakers. We will now be able to watch movies on the big screen as well as use it for PS4 gaming. Thanks to Cam for his technical wizardry and helping me setup the speakers and...

With twenty girls in Malvern and a possible three hundred and sixty-five days in a year it seems nearly impossible that any two girls would share a birthday but, and I had to check we had copied their details down correctly, THREE of them celebrated their special day this...

With two full weeks now under our belts the girls are well in to the swing of school life and it is hard to believe that some of them have not been with us for longer. The first few weeks always present challenges but I have been very proud of how the girls have adapted to a new school, first time boarding for some, and a new country in many cases. I have been impressed with their eagerness to get involved in an array of activities too. During this week alone girls have been involved with wind band rehearsals, cross country, fencing, hockey, netball, tennis, the gym, chemistry clinic and life drawing; the music school, the SBA courts and the library have been used well after school...

Well, it has been a busy week for us all in Pentreve as it was our first full week of lessons and that meant for some us (me included) getting used to the idea of a two-week timetable. The girls have been super-busy all week. From Monday to Thursday we do our prep in the school library after supper and then almost everyone has been heading off to the sports centre to go swimming, use the gym or play...

Following last weekend’s induction and all the associated activities the girls have now also experienced three full days of schooling; exhaustion has certainly crept in and the girls were delighted when the 3.45pm end of the school day bell sounded on Friday. The chance to down tools, regroup and get some sleep was meet with happy acceptance as the girls looked forward to two days...
