Trinity News : July 2010
The morning was one of serene autumnal calm for the School’s ANZAC Commemoration Service on the Quad. The Catafalque Party marched on and with reversed arms formed a guard around the centrally placed Book of Remembrance which records the names of all Trinitarians who served in the wars of the last century. The Head Master spoke to the assembly of the signifcance of the occasion; the hymn O God our Help in Ages Past was sung, and then, with the School Captain, turned a page of the Book. Movingly, as the Senior Master read out the names of the Fallen, boys placed on the Quadrangle crosses bearing the names. The Bugler sounded The Last Post. The Ode to the Fallen was read. A minute’s silence ...The Reveille sounded. And though at one stage, as if to remind us of war’s tumult, a passing plane disturbed the silence, the noise faded, and quiet serenity was restored. May our prayer be that peace will prevail because of those who sacrifced their lives for their country, and that war will be no more. Trinity Cadets also took part in local RSL Services at Enmore, Ashfeld and Burwood prior to Anzac Day, providing Honour Guards, Flag Parties and Catafalque Parties, culminating their attendance at Drummoyne RSL Dawn Service on ANZAC Day, while later the School Band marched in the City. We thank them all for their excellent contribution to these community occasions. | Ron Ogier main photo: The Catafalque Party and Honour Guard at Drummoyne inset: The Catafalque Party prepares to march onto the Quadrangle Emperors and Pharaohs, warriors and slaves, even a Trojan Horse and bunches of grapes - all were present at the Classical Languages Teachers Association Dinner hosted by Trinity in the Dining Hall on A.D. VIII KAL. APR.MMDCCLXIIIA.V.C*, and attended by Classics students from eighteen schools in the Sydney area. After the excellent cena beautifully prepared by the Catering Staff, the assembly was addressed by Ms Rachel White, Classics student at the University of Sydney, and recipient of the Cooper Scholarship. Ms White spoke eloquently of the benefts of a Classical education as manifested in our everyday lives, and the subtle links we still have with the Classical world. Also speaking was Dr Emily Matters, President of the Association, who presented certifcates to the winners of the Cicero Competition. An institution at the Dinner is the Trivia Antiqua prepared by our Mr David Dixon, whom we thank once again for its excellent entertainment. Prizes were awarded to the winning teams, and also for the best costumes! It was a happy occasion indeed, and our appreciation is extended to Ms Sandra Stark and her team from the Classics Department for organising the event. *That is: March 25 2010. | Ron Ogier above: Imperial Rome, comes to Trinity with imperatores (l-r) Nielson Brown (11Mu), William Sandwell (11Sc) and Phillip Kern (11Ke) right: Egypt’s Pharoah Joshua Karras (11He) and Rome’s Caesar Dane Drivas (11Mu) in peaceful accord!
