Headmaster’s Blog, 12 October 2015

It was lovely to see so many parents at the Harvest Festival on Wednesday. Well done to Mrs Gregory’s Year 6 class for leading the service; their reading was loud, clear and confident.
This week we have had spelling workshops (for pupils and staff), a workshop for those taking part in the City of Lights Parade (at Truro School – plaudits all round for the pupils behaviour and participation) and for the Shakespeare Schools’ Festival at the Hall for Cornwall.
At this moment, half of Year 5 are running around the school grounds, getting a taste for orienteering, whilst the other half are paddling around Stithians Lake, and hopefully getting to taste the noodles and soups they prepared in cooking earlier this term (they have to heat them up using camping stoves on the lake shore).
I really enjoyed the Quiz and Curry on Friday night during which our pupils outwitted their parents with fiendishly hard questions. A question we decided should be disallowed was:
“What’s my favourite lunch?”
There is either no chance of getting that right, or every answer is right?
Finally, this week we have had assemblies about beekeeping in relation to the collection at the Harvest Festival for All We Can’s campaign to raise funds for beekeepers in Ethiopia.
