Trinity News : November 2008
GROWING IN WISDOM & STATURE... On the first day of School in 2003, two lads entered the premises simultaneously to be the first two Year 7 students to arrive for that year. Now, nearly six years later, they are about to leave their School days behind, having grown into fine young men who have entered fully into the life of the School. We pay tribute herewith to Edward Leaney (12Hi) (l) and Justin Mangos, (12He) (r), both on a personal basis and as the representatives of all the Year 12 young men who are leaving us this year. Our best wishes go with them all. | Ron Ogier YR8 WHEELCHAIR ROADSHOW REPORT This week all Year 8 boys participated in a Wheelchair Basketball Session, run by NSW Wheelchair Roadshow. The show aims to raise awareness of spinal injuries, road safety and wheelchair sports. The students listened as guest speakers spoke of the dangers that exist in our society than can result in spinal injuries. It culminated in an opportunity to take part in a game of wheelchair basketball. The session was part of a Year 8 PDHPE Unit of work titled ‘Willing & Able’. The unit aims to provide boys with the understanding of people with a disability and experience some sports for the disabled. Our thanks must go to the Arrive Alive Wheelchair Sports Roadshow representatives along with all Year 8 boys, who were fantastic hosts to our guests. Neil Scotney | PDHPE Co-ordinator 7-9 2003 2008 + MEN AT WORK! Over a two-day period the Year 12 Construction class undertook an exercise involving the fabrication of a 3.5 square metre concrete slab to enable cherry picker access to tennis courts at the Trinity Tennis Centre. This exercise provided students with insight and experience into the Concrete Fabrication sector of the Construction Industry and allowed students to undertake the excavation of soil, laying of simple plumbing, assembly of formwork, installation of reinforcing, and the pouring and finishing of concrete. This proved to be a unique and valuable experience for the class, completing the skills and knowledge learnt across the two year course.

Our boys are getting good training here – but we are assured that overall each lad did his share of the work! above from left: Jackson Butler, Brett Gray, Giuliano Raiola and Aaron Fleming carry reinforcing mesh for the project 24 TRINITY NEWS TRINITARIAN IN TIME To have taught and worked in a School such as Trinity is an experience which introduces you to a myriad of lads whom one remembers for some outstanding attribute of talent or personality, and of these there are some who stand out even further! In the last few years we have been privileged to have in the School a young man whose forthrightness in practically everything is most memorable and refreshing, so it is with a pleasure that verges on the gleeful that we report he has appeared on the International scene—and we doubt very much that this will be his only excursion thereinto! I speak, of course, of the inimitable and redoubtable Martin Eftimoski (12Ta) who has had a letter published in Time, the world-renown magazine. As far as we know, this is a first for a Trinity student, and we congratulate Martin for his interest and enterprise in this regard. | Ron Ogier
