Welcome to Truro High School Old GirlsHello everyone!
The site is a place for past pupils to keep in touch and up-to-date with everyone's latest news.
So if you've moved on to pastures new, started a new job, graduated, retired, got married, got into uni, had a baby, had a grandchild or perhaps just climbed Mount Everest then we want to hear from you.
Membership is open to all ex pupils of the High School and we have members of all ages from recent leavers to those much older!
Do keep an eye on our Notice Board and Latest News section for details.
Next Event: June Summer evening
Please join us for our June Summer evening event. This is taking place on Friday 21 June from 7.30pm in the Piran Performing Arts Centre. This was officially opened by HRH The Duchess of Gloucester earlier this term and we are very proud of our Old Girls' 'wall of fame', honouring a number of our former pupils who have excelled in music and the performing arts.
Tickets cost £10.00 and during the evening food and Pimms, or soft drinks, will be available. For our musical interlude Emmeline Downer will be playing the piano.
If you wish to attend this event, please contact Marianne Inskip by email firstname.lastname@example.org or write to her at 19 Tara Vale, Crantock, Newquay, Cornwall TR8 5SR. We look forward to seeing as many Old Girls as possible at this very popular event.

And now a message from your Chairman Sue Dowding:
Having been a past Secretary and Committee Member of the Old Girls' Committee for many years I was delighted to be asked to be Chairman of the Old Girls' Association. I was duly elected at the AGM in September and will endeavour to carry on in the Old Girls' tradition of supporting the school and its pupils.
I came to the school in October 1957 when Miss Engledow was still Headmistress. My early schooling had been in Ghana, West Africa where by father was working for the Ashanti Gold Fields Company who were involved in gold mining. In the eleven happy years I spent at Truro High School I made lifelong friends, who although far flung, I still see today and I am sure this has much to do with the atmosphere created within the School.
My main aim whilst I am Chairman is to try to persuade as many Old Girls who live locally to support me by coming back to school, not as Committee members but just by attending some of the Old Girls' events, as well as the many organised by the School. The websites will be our greatest assets in this aim and I look forward to working with the Headmistress and her staff as well as the hardworking members of the Old Girls' Committee.
