Tree of Promises made for Charity Day

Truro School Staff and Pupils came together to raise money for and awareness of local and international charities today.

The day has raised funds for St Petroc’s homeless charity in Cornwall and the World Wide Fund for Nature’s campaign for ‘Our Climate Future’.

Staff and pupils were allowed to come to school in their own clothes in exchange for a small donation. Meanwhile, a thought-provoking assembly was held to stimulate thought about how we can all affect change to lessen our impact on the environment.

Pupils each made a ‘leaf of promise’. On one side, they need to include a personal, written #PromiseToThe Planet and on the other side, write the promise they want world leaders to make to the planet.

The leaves were collected and put on to the Tree of Promises, which is currently on display in the Chapel.

With thanks to Ms Alford and all of the staff, parents and pupils who made today such a success.
