Our Alumni team have been busy reaching out to the Old Truronian network to ensure that everyone has the help that they need during this time. They have also created a page to share warm messages they have received from our community, in the hope it brings some positivity to everyone. If you would like to contribute to the messages of goodwill and strength in these uncertain times, or to read the messages click the link below.
We were recently contacted by Old Truronian Meghan Prindl. Megan works for a small charity which funds much needed research into kinder and more effective treatments for neuroblastoma, a terrible childhood cancer.
She said: Like many charities, we are experiencing a drastic drop in fundraising support as people turn their attention towards coronavirus. We can’t let research for neuroblastoma stop because of coronavirus, however, so we’ve launched our first ever virtual fundraiser called Tribe 100.
Around 100 children are diagnosed with neuroblastoma every year in the UK. Tribe 100 encourages participants to take on a 100-themed challenge of their choice and creation, to give families affected by neuroblastoma hope for the future. You can take part in the challenge wherever and whenever you can. Cycle 100 miles, dance 100 routines, bake 100 cookies, draw 100 pictures – in your front room, garden or local area. There’s no minimum sponsorship and no registration fee.
Our school motto, Esse Quam Videri, (to be rather than to seem to be) captures the essence of our identity. From Nursery right through to Sixth Form the Truro School Community shares the same values and approach to education which help to shape our identity. Underpinned by strong Christian principles, we are a caring and inclusive community which values, nurtures and develops each individual. Click on the links below to find out more.
DEVELOPING INDIVIDUAL EXCELLENCE AT EVERY LEVEL
Because we believe that academic excellence is an important part of human excellence. Every child is an individual and we celebrate and develop their uniqueness, helping them to become an independent learner and encouraging each child to explore, understand and cultivate their talent and abilities, whatever they may be.
To inspire creativity, ignite imaginations and help each pupil to find and fully develop his or her talents.
Because we value the development of pupils’ imaginative and creative dimensions as well as their characters. Through a broad curriculum and wide range of co-curricular activities, pupils discover the important balance between creative and logical thinking. These opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter discovers their hidden gifts, developing a sense of individuality and a confidence in their own abilities.
DEVELOPING PUPILS WHO ARE AT EASE WITH THEMSELVES AND EACH OTHER
Because we want every pupil to be comfortable in their own skin, celebrating the uniqueness of each individual in the school community. Through drama, presenting and public speaking opportunities, as well as appearing in productions and concerts, pupils learn key communication skills and gain the confidence to prosper in the real world.
To forge pupil characters and ambition through challenges and opportunities.
Because we believe that essential life skills are often best taught outside of the classroom, balancing an academic education. Through a wide-ranging co-curricular programme, we offer every child the chance to participate, perform and lead in the fields of their choice. In a competitive world these opportunities are fundamental to ensuring your son or daughter develops essential life skills and an ambition for life.
DEVELOPING STUDENTS WHO RESPECT OTHER PEOPLE AND THE WORLD AROUND THEM
Because our mission challenges us to be a vibrant community which enables people to live their lives to the full and transform society for the better. Located in the heart of Cornwall, our distinctive, serene location supports the development of balanced, unpretentious and reflective children who understand their role as global citizens.
ENCOURAGING PUPILS TO DEVELOP THEIR OWN WAY OF THINKING
Because we encourage pupils towards a personally developed life philosophy. Underlying all that we do is a solid foundation based on the ethos and values of Christianity. We nurture and challenge each individual child in a caring environment that is inclusive, enjoys the diversity within our School Community and beyond, and supports a genuine desire to question what we see and what we know.
