Trinity News : November 2008
TRIPLE- DECKER TREAT The first layer of this cultural sandwich, as it were, was the presentation by the Drama Club of a celebration of the boys’ learning and growth in a vibrant and welcoming “open workshop” in The Latham Theatre, inviting family and friends to watch and participate in the warm-ups, skill games and improvised scenes. The workshop was expertly led by two Year 11 Elective drama students, James Dickman and Will Cook, who have mentored the boys throughout the year under the direction of Miss Sam Kosky and Mrs Emma Heffernan in a most supportive and dynamic way. The evening began with several warm- up games, designed to raise energy and focus, followed by some quirky and entertaining skill games and then an improvised scenario that began with ideas pulled from “the hat.” Parents and younger family members leapt up to join in the various games and played characters with incredible success, much to the delight their sons and the audience! Meantime, over at the Delmar Gallery, one of the biggest crowds ever spilled out of the body of the Gallery onto Number Two Oval as Mr Steve Collins opened this annual smorgasbord of art, giving a second layer to the triple- decker! Held as part of the continuing Arts Festival, the variety of style and treatment of the subject was a reflection of the excellent work done in the Visual Arts section of the School. Prizes for the best artwork in Years 7 through to 11 were awarded to: Year 7 Year 8 Thomas Hart (7Mu) Alexander Kelly (8We) Year 9 Samuel Haddo (9WH) Year 10 Matthew Gadaleta (10Yo) Year 11 Angus Miller (11Yo) The Best Artwork in Middle School went to Jason Weissberger and the Best Artwork in Senior School went to Stephen Apollonov. Congratulations to everybody! In a further meantime, in the Experimental Drama theatre, New Orleans, New York and Chicago came to Trinity as the Big band and the Jazz ensemble under the aegis of Mr Chris Aschman and his team of musicians presented a ‘cool’ programme of jazz music which was a delight to hear and see as the musicians played with a passion and true involvement. Platters of sandwiches and fruit, as well as soft drinks, tea and coffee enabled the large audience to enjoy the music in an appropriate environment! And still speaking of sandwiches, for your reporter at least, the evening of September 15 was indeed a triple-decker! A really pleasant and enjoyable feast indeed! Congratulations to all who were involved in its preparation and serving!

However, it was possible for one to attend all three events with a little bit of overlap, so that a most interesting and entertaining evening was experienced in another display of the abundance of delightful talent present in Trinity. above left: Our Year 8s create a lawn mower in a demonstration of the game “Red, Number, Object” above right: Using the skills of offer and yield in a game called “Knife and Fork” above left: Mr Steve Collins with prize winners Matthew Gadaleta (10Yo), Angus Miller (11Yo), Jason Weissberger (9Fo), Mrs Kelly (mother of Alex 8We), Stephen Apollonov (10Du), and Mr Kell Daniels above right: The opening
