Athletics success for Truro School teams

On Friday 9th June 48 pupils from Truro School went to the Cornwall Schools games athletics qualifier.  It was a wonderful day full of very good performances and from our 6 teams 3 have now qualified for the finals on 30th June -2nd / 3rd Year Girls, 2nd / 3rd Year boys and 4th year boys and we look forward to trying to be the best in Cornwall.

On Saturday 10th June the Cornwall School athletics Championships were held at Carn Brea in some very wet and windy conditions. This is an opportunity for our athletes to compete as individuals against the best in the rest of the county.  There were some excellent performances and we came away with 25 medals in total, 7 Gold, 6 Silver and 12 Bronze.
