Autumn 1 2023 - Week 3
Head of School's Welcome
Dear Families

We've had a very wet but very wonderful week at Tregolls (we have contacted the council about the puddle/flood - please do remind your children to stay out of it!). The children are really settling into their new classes and learning, and we're really proud of all of their achievements. Mrs Hancock and I have loved having so many visitors in our office showing us their work with pride.

This year, we're looking at ways of developing our opportunities for pupil voice. This is really important for our value unity and empowering children in our school. In assemblies this week we learned about democracy and the children have been casting their votes for members of pupil parliament. Today, they also met in their lighthouse groups to vote for their house captains - well done to all of the Year 6s who applied for the role, your speeches/presentations were amazing! Our librarians, sports leaders and anti-bullying ambassadors are also electing a representative to be part of the pupil parliament. We're looking forward to revealing chosen candidates in assemblies next week.

In the meantime, we hope you enjoy the information and classroom learning in this learning. We're looking forward to seeing you next week and at our parent reading morning on Friday 29th September at 9am.

Best wishes

Mrs Drury

Can you help?

To support out local community, we will be collecting donations for the food bank this term. As we did last year, we will invite a representative in from the food bank to watch our Harvest Performance (18.10.23) and collect the donations. We will have a box in front office for donations. Please only give what you can and don't feel you must. Please also speak to us if you would benefit from support and we can help.

From 2nd August there will be no food distribution from either All Saints Church, Highertown or Truro Methodist Church. 
Opening times are still 3-5pm Mondays, 10am-12pm Wednesdays and 10am-12pm Fridays.

To find Unit 15b turn into the industrial estate so the Volvo garage is on your left and Toolstation on the right. The road shortly bends - in effect you are turning right there. Go past Tremorvah on your right, Ford Transit on your left and you will then see a white bungalow on the left. There is parking down the left-hand side of the unit. The park and ride bus is a 6-minute walk away.

Please can you bring in strong bags to pack the food into. Please also note if a voucher is not redeemed within two weeks of issue Truro Foodbank reserves the right to cancel the voucher. This is because we are here to help people in emergency need of food. 

Please also note that customers will always be advised it is best for them to come to a distribution session to collect their food. This is for many reasons. Firstly, we are better able to tailor any food parcel with the person present. If there is a vegetarian, vegan or gluten free preference we cannot easily make that happen with a delivery.  
Secondly, we have a professional advisor at our distribution sessions so a customer can get excellent advice about issues other than food.  
Thirdly, due to increasing demand we are restricting delivery to people with a health situation that genuinely precludes attendance.  
We are quite happy to release the food to a neighbour, friend or relative collecting on a customer’s behalf. 

Thank you,

Truro Foodbank
