Pentreve – Poldhu Cove and Segways

The guys in the house are now into a well established routine and they seem settled and busy. We have boys involved in extra-curricular rugby, hockey, football, badminton, swimming and music, which is great to see. One of Truro Schools great strengths lies in its co-curricular provision and so it is heartening to see the boys making the most of these wonderful opportunities.

 

Friday was prep followed by a session in the Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Hall. Saturday was eagerly awaited as several boys were selected to play rugby for the school against Kelly College. William Dell played in a resounding 36-7 win for the 1st years and Calum Dunn-Rundle, Mikel Aguirre and Enric Cortes all played in a 105-0 victory for Truro Schools under 15 side.

 

Flushed with success and hungry Saturday evening saw the traditional pizza and DVD night and a total of 9 pizzas were consumed in double quick time!!

 

Sunday was a lovely day so we headed off to the beach at Poldhu Cove near Helston, followed by a couple of hours at Goonhilly on the Segways.

 

Next month sees the first set of grades for the boys in the house and Mrs Mulready and I await to see if they have met their targets of a 2 or better in all their subjects and which year group will win the ‘Domino Pizza’ reward for best grades.

 

I would like to congratulate and thank Cyrus and Alan for playing the piano so beautifully in the recent boarders Chapel service. They are often to be heard practicing in the house office which keeps us all entertained.

 

A gallery of images from the weekend is available to view.
