Grandparents’ Cream Tea at Prep

Truro School Prep was busier than usual as the Grandparents of pupils in Years 3 to 6 joined their grandchildren for the first Grandparents’ Afternoon Cream Tea event at Prep.

As the gates opened, families flocked into the school grounds, welcomed with a concert from some of our talented pupils and Truro School Prep Choir. Our visiting grandparents were joined by their grandchildren; with beautiful smiles, warm hugs and excited chatter galore.

The afternoon allowed Grandparents to tour our beautiful school, with a chance to pop into classrooms, chat with staff and teachers and visit our fantastic facilities, including our extensive outdoor learning areas, sports hall, swimming pool and DT lab.

Our excited pupils happily showed off their work and talked about their favourite lessons and experiences at school as they proudly guided their grandparents around.

For many of our visitors, it was a trip down memory lane as several were Truro School alumni or had children who had also been pupils at Truro School.

With tours completed, it was time for a lavish afternoon tea of scones, cookies and cakes in the Dining Hall.

There was an exciting carousel of outdoor activities and lollies for those pupils whose grandparents were unable to attend, ensuring that all had a memorable afternoon.

We want to thank our wonderful grandparents who visited our school, our amazing pupils and our fantastic staff who worked so hard to make the afternoon such a success. A particular thanks must go to Mrs McIntosh and her team who put on such an amazing spread for tea!
