A great public school, one I spent the first seven years of my school life in. Had great teachers, & a layout rather easy to learn for primary students - it's been years since I've last visited, but I remember quite clearly the entire layout! It also has a support unit! When I went to this school, it had around 300 kids, which is a lot less noisy and chaotic then where I went to high school. My favourite teachers were Mrs Miller, Ms Grenier & Mrs Ryan. I don't know if they still are there, but they're all cool teachers. Especially Mrs Miller. I have a lot of fond memories from here. The play equipment was always rad, and I used to ADORE spending time on the oval. I really enjoyed the project where we grew a plant - a bean, I think? That was such a good assignment. I wish I could've done something like that in high school. Friday sports were often very fun. Once I outlasted almost everyone on my team in swissball, simply by running like a headless chicken the whole time. Ah, fond memories. There was a debating group, as well. I used to do that, even though I didn't really like having to draft the speeches. The library had computers, which was awesome, and we got to play on them during some days. The common room had computers too. I remember a lesson where we got to play Poptropica, which both myself and my brother were great at. Also on the note of the library, it was GREAT. I love that library. I still remember learning the time warp dance, and winging it every time I had a recorder assembly, because I didn't practice it anywhere near enough. I also brought my frog, Croaki, and my dog, Joey, to school for the pet day thing. I wish I could've shown my beloved cat Jasper, but I didn't get her until high school. All in all, Truscott is a great little school. We lived pretty far away, but I'm incredibly glad we decided to go there. Even after all this time, I feel warm with scholarly pride - if that's a thing - whenever I see Truscott kids. Quod portui perfeci! (Whatever I do, I do my best.) (P.S. Edmo's the best school house, without a doubt. I was in Ryrie in Kindergarten, too, so I have a little soft spot for Ryrie, but Edmo is still better.)

Truscott Street is a lovely school. My child's years there were nothing but positive. Even though at the end, it was time to go, it didn't mean they didn't have a great time there. The teachers are nourishing and positive, and the environment is caring. Great school!
