The weather has made the headlines everywhere else these past few weeks, so why should Truro School be any different? The picture postcard Cornish coastline has taken a battering from mammoth waves, storm force winds and torrential rain. Thankfully, Trennick House is as equally well-equipped for ‘cosy-out-of-the-storm’ days as it is for glorious summer days. As sports fixtures were cancelled and no-one felt like venturing too far the library, gym and the common room were the places to be.
Sadly, the weather saw our trip to Plymouth cancelled too, and the best laid plans of a meal out before a nail-biting basketball encounter at the Pavilions were a wash out. Hopefully, we can rearrange this for a calmer evening after half-term.
The Sir Ben Ainslie Sports Centre was put to good use throughout the weekend, but especially on Sunday afternoon when the boys played some basketball of their own. I am not sure how many will be trying out for the Plymouth Raiders any time soon, but it was entertaining and an opportunity to clear our minds. The library remained a hive of activity well into Sunday evening: the arrival of Sixth Form mock exams after half term is persuasion enough for most.
Let’s hope that there will be some sunnier weekends after half term when we can enjoy Cornwall in all its glory.
