Annual Sports Dinner 2023

The annual Sixth Form Sports Dinner took place on Friday night at The Alverton in Truro. One hundred and forty guests attended to celebrate our senior sporting achievements of the last year.

Director of Sport, Mr Sanderson, said ‘It is always an evening that I look forward to, with this year’s event being one of my favourites ever. The evening was an opportunity to bring together pupils, sports staff and parents to enjoy each other’s company. We had some fantastic food and celebrated incredible sporting achievements. Awards, Q&A’s, expressions of thank you, and of course, the sports quiz ensured the evening was fully stacked and a pleasure to be a part of.’

The guest speaker was Ollie Andrews, Old Truronian (CO18) and Head Boy, who joined Mr Sanderson for a Q&A, sharing stories about his time at school, his favourite teachers, school sporting memories and what it means to be a professional rugby player at Coventry RFC. It was lovely to welcome Ollie back to the school and we are very proud of his achievements.

Awards were distributed for ‘Player of the Year’ in each sport, Sports Personality for sporting achievement, and ‘Sports Ambassador’ which celebrates fantastic role models and their continued effort and commitment to Truro School Sport.

Sports Personality went to Tegan B for her outstanding sporting achievements in national and international surfing.

Sports Ambassador was awarded to Kobe K for being a fantastic role model, and multi-sport athlete and for his outstanding commitment and effort.

Sixth Form School Colours were also awarded to students for their commitment, dedication, attitude and for being outstanding role models.

Mr Sanderson finished by saying, ‘Thank you to all of our incredible pupils who compete, train and represent the school so well. I would also like to thank the Truro School sports staff who support, encourage and facilitate the wonderful sporting opportunities our pupils can access. Lastly, I want to say thank you to The Alverton for hosting a wonderful evening and to Mrs Lowe for organising the event. We are already looking forward to next year.”
