Sporting Successes Celebrated

The Alverton Hotel played host to the annual Truro School Senior Sports Dinner on Friday 10th May. It was delightful to see staff, pupils and students gather in their finest to celebrate some of the year’s sporting highlights.

After rousing welcome addresses from Truro School Head, Mr Andy Johnson, and Director of Sport, Mr Dan Sanderson, guests enjoyed a delicious three-course meal that included Cornish fish cake, butter and sage chicken breast and sugar-glazed lemon tart.

The awards were presented by Mr Johnson and Guest Presenter and Cornish Rugby legend, Marlen Walker. With Sixth Form colours awarded and Player of the Year applauded, the final awards for Outstanding Sporting Achievement (Tara S) and Truro School Sports Ambassador (Leora K) were delivered.

The event was a wonderful celebration of the rich and diverse offering of sport at Truro School. Mr Sanderson said of the event, “Hosting the Senior Sports Dinner is one of the most enjoyable parts of my role as Director of Sport. Welcoming our pupils, parents and staff to celebrate sporting achievements over the last year is an honour and we have so much to be thankful for.

The evening was a great way to share our pupils’ successes; to shine a spotlight on what they have achieved and give richly deserved recognition to the award winners. Thank you to the pupils, parents and staff for their support and commitment to Truro School Sport and for being part of a wonderful evening.”

A huge thanks to the Alverton and to the staff who helped behind the scenes to make the evening so memorable.
