Trinity News : November 2008
Kindifarm Visit He prayeth best who loveth best All things both great and small For the dear God who loveth us, He made us loveth all. | S.T. Coleridge Evidence that the PK boys have been investigating “Alive!” is everywhere in the Pre-Kindergarten classrooms at Strathfield. With carefully tendered beans growing into beanstalks in the spring sunshine and ‘craft’ cocoons hanging from the ceiling amongst beautiful butterflies, painted gardens and integrated ‘Alive!’ THRASS activities, all that we were missing were some farm animals. The very much ‘Alive!’ farm animals came in the back of the Kindifarm truck to the delight of the boys on Monday September 1st. The boys spent the day in small groups, along with their friends from PK at Lewisham, visiting the Kindifarm enclosure, with varying degrees of courage! They fed and patted the animals, bonding with the animals and listening carefully to the farmer as she told them about the needs of the nursery farm animals. Some slight misunderstandings about the calf being the largest animal in the pen and therefore the father of all the other animals were quickly cleared up as the farmer explained egg-laying farm animals and mammals, ascertaining the names we give to the variety of mother, father and baby animals usually found in farm yards. Almost at the end of the school day the animals were carefully loaded back into the truck and waved off for their trip back to the farm. | Karen Oliver and Sue Gunter William Orr PKGO NO POTTERING AROUND AT THE PREP! One has an interesting life as a roving reporter for the Trinity News. Your reporter spent a most entertaining and enjoyable couple of hours with the classes of Mrs Ballard, Mrs Gunter and Mrs Oliver as they learnt how to make clay faces. The interest, enthusiasm and seriousness of approach of the lads was most refreshing to see, as was their excitement as their clay faces took shape. Who knows whether a future Rodin or Henry Moore is lying latent in Mrs Ballard’s Department! | Ron Ogier 1 above: back row (l-r): Tishan Ritigahapola, Duncan Feng and Jamie Christopoulos front (l-r): John Sakoutis, Cameron Chan and William Orr proudly display their work! right: Phillip Livanos “Look to your Laurels, Michelangelo!” PK Coffee & Muffins with Dads A tremendously successful morning was held recently at the Prep School with fifty Dads, Grandads and Uncles, together with the PK boys who presented gifts to their guests. There were several Old Boy Dads in attendance. A new Trinity tradition has been established! | Karen Oliver right: Kallan Maranik (PKG) with dad Erik and grandad far right: Owen Read (PKB) with dad Graham (Old Boy 1984) and grandad 34 TRINITY NEWS
