Headmaster’s Blog – Monday 10 November 2014  

After a lovely break we’re back at full speed. Last night’s performance by Prep pupils at the Shakespeare Schools Festival of A Midsummer Night’s Dream was superb. It was a real privilege to be taking part in such an extraordinary event and the cast of pupils drawn from Year 3 to Year 6 was outstanding; it was funny, intelligent and performed with a confidence that belies their years. Well done and thank you to all the pupils and an especial thank you to Mrs Gregory for her superb direction.

 

It was great to see a number of local schools here on Wednesday afternoon for a rugby festival and even nicer to hear how much they enjoyed their afternoon with us. I’ve just said good bye to Year 5 who are orienteering this afternoon in Idless Woods. On this occasion, with the rain and wind coming in sporadic bursts, my warm office has never seemed quite as inviting!

 

On Sunday afternoon there is the Wreath Laying ceremony at the War Memorial in Boscawen Street in Truro. I will be there to represent the school with two Year 6 pupils. It is a most moving occasion for all concerned and particularly poignant this year, so do come along and join us if you are able. We shall also be holding our own Act of Remembrance here at the Prep on Tuesday 11th at 11am, with all the pupils taking part.

 

For parents of pupils in Years 5 and 6, don’t forget that it is Truro School’s Open Day tomorrow (Saturday 8) form 9.30am to 12.30pm. I’ll be there and hope to see as many of you there as possible; it’s a great opportunity to see what’s to come, once the pupils move on from the Prep School.
