Term commences with collaborative workshops to inspire curious and creative learners

Truro High is all about igniting a passion for discovery in girls so what better way to start the term than with a day of exciting workshops focussed on curiosity and creative thinking?

Working collaboratively in their ‘bubbles’, our Student Enquiry Day saw girls from Year 7 – Sixth Form exploring how inspiring and ambitious women have become agents of change in the world in areas ranging from sport and art to business and music.

Activities included interpreting Jazz music in paint, leading research into inspiring sportswomen, practising yoga on the school lawns and taking on a business challenge to pitch a tea brand to name but a few.

Compassion and communication were key and it was wonderful to see many girls courageously stepping outside their comfort zone due to the support and encouragement of their classmates. 

Director of Teaching and Learning, Mrs Jo House said: “It was an exciting day full of questions and enquiry. The feedback has been fantastic. The girls loved having freedom and independence from traditional lessons and really enjoyed taking ownership of their learning. Interdisciplinary learning challenges girls to apply their knowledge to unfamiliar situations, tests their ability to problem solve and builds their resilience – that’s why days like this are so important and stretch our girls learning way beyond the curriculum. We’re hoping to run many more this year.”
