A virtual visit to Truro Cathedral

It is interesting to think about all of the things that have changed in a positive way since the pandemic.  One of the good things for a small church school like Trenode, is that it has given us easier access to our wider community, both in Cornwall and further afield.  On Tuesday, we came together as a whole school to join other Cornish church schools for a 'Choristers' Mega Zoom Assembly' at Truro Cathedral.  It was the first time that Trenode have taken part and despite the usual few technology issues we all enjoyed taking part.

We were able to watch the choristers rehearse and sing and then we took part in a service that looked at Psalm 23 - 'The Lord is my Shepherd'.  As well as a sermon from an archdeacon, we listened to different versions of the same psalm and joined in with the singing and prayer.  Two of our pupils read the prayers that they had written and this was a proud moment.

Dear Lord,
Thank you for my family who always make me feel better when I am upset.
Thank you for sending me such a kind and generous family, who are always there for me.
Help me to be a good and kind sibling too.

Dear Lord,
Help me to have the patience to help those around me.
Help me to have the right words to say.
Help me to treat others as I would like to be treated.
Please give us the skill to notice when someone needs help.

I am sure you will agree that these are beautiful prayers.  It was an occasion that we will join again, but it was made even better this time as we had the company of our CEO Mr Massey and we even caught him singing in a very high voice - the choristers certainly make it look easy!

Trenode is a small but growing primary school situated between Liskeard and Looe. Extensive grounds allow for a range of outdoor learning experiences; we also have spacious indoor facilities, including a music room. A nurturing, family ethos, in mixed-age classes, enables our pupils to be challenged as individuals.

‘Reach beyond your grasp’ is our motto at Trenode. We would like all children to aspire further than they think they can! We are on a ‘Visible Learning’ journey, with the other schools in Bridge Schools, which is empowering our pupils to be able to discuss their learning and progress, understanding their ‘next steps’.
