Headmaster’s Blog – Friday 6 June 2014

This week is the Royal Cornwall Show. Every year this event showcases the best that our beautiful county has to offer; from livestock and show jumping to music and motors. Once again we have been enjoying meeting and greeting at our Truro School stand. It’s also been a super opportunity for me to spend time with people who are part of the wider school family.


On Thursday I went along to the CLA breakfast where Dan Rogerson (MP for North Cornwall) was talking and taking questions on a variety of rural issues including tackling the TB crisis on farms and question of universal access to superfast broadband. It was nice to meet up with other Truro School parents, former parents and pupils there who had an interest in agricultural matters. In the evening, I attended an event hosted by Stephens Scown and had a very enjoyable dinner with two current parents, one prospective parent and one former pupil, all of whom are solicitors with the firm.


If you get a chance on Saturday, please visit us at stand 377 where you’ll see some outstanding examples of art and DT from both schools, including a massive swing seat, a guitar and numerous paintings and sculptures. At 12pm onwards there are drinks and nibbles and a chance to glance into the past at the TSFPA stand. We very much look forward to seeing you there.


Flow State is still proving to be an explosion of colour and culture in the Heseltine Gallery. As we slowly but surely edge our way to summer, I would highly recommend checking out the surf and skate themes, complimented by our new-look staircase, courtesy of artist Cosmic.


I hope this period of revision and examinations continues to go well for all those pupils involved.
