After a relaxing break for half term, the boarders in Trennick hit the ground running this week. There were rugby matches on Wednesday and Saturday for the some of the U16s and 2nd XV. The fireworks display at Truro City Football Club on Wednesday was outstanding, and provided an opportunity for some of our students to celebrate the foiled gunpowder plot in style. Friday was junior disco night and the school quiz; my thanks to the Trennick boys who supported these events with maturity and humour.
As the weekend arrived, the Trennick boys rose early on Saturday morning and prepared to meet and greet prospective parents and children at the Open Morning. I am immensely proud of their kind and helpful approach as many assisted in departments across the school.
Saturday evening was a time for celebrating birthdays in the house and some ventured into town for a meal whilst others stayed in for the Trennick pizza night extravaganza.
Sunday was a day of remembrance, starting with a Chapel service at 10.30am where we reflected on the sacrifices made by service men and women across the globe. There was an opportunity to think of the former pupils of the school who gave their lives in the World Wars. The whole boarding community came together as students, staff and parents remembered together.
On Sunday afternoon, after a hearty brunch, some boarders ventured off to the cinema to watch the latest releases whilst other put their bowling skills to the test at Truro Bowl.
Sunday evening was a time to prepare for the week ahead with the library hosting many of the boys as they consolidate ready for next week’s effort.
We will remember them.
