Trinity News : July 2010
22 TRINITY NEWS From a seat in the balcony of the Chapel, the wooden roof trusses in their receding perspective towards the front of the chapel, draw the eye to the semi-octagonal apse, where they lead the eye down to the jewel-like windows which illustrate the Gospel story, and thence down to the green and white robed choristers, who sang so excellently and movingly of that same story, telling afresh of the birth of Jesus. The annual service of Nine Lessons and Carols, held on the 27 and 29th of November, seemed indeed to mark the beginning of Christmas. Traditional carols and those reaching us from earlier centuries as well as modern songs reminded us of the message of God’s coming into a world of strife and discord with a message of hope and love. The Choir once again did justice in their singing of the various pieces and once again we appreciate their dedication and talent in so doing. | Ron Ogier below left: The Chapel Choir below middle: l to r: Billy Salameh and Dillon Srikumar in front were candle bearers at the Friday service below right: l to r: Prakatheesh Sothilingam (8WH), Kenneth Truong (8WH) and Evan Caddy (8Hi) refect on the coming service Often, when reporting on this Concert I have used the imagery of jewels to express the quality of the performances of the talented young musicians who perform at this concert. This year is no exception, indeed, this diamond in the Music Department’s jewel casket seems to have increased in its brilliance! Chosen from heats held during Term 3, the eight musicians - four from the Middle School and four from the Senior School, played with an expertise and sensitivity that truly made their pieces seem alive--a tribute to their dedication, and to the guidance of their teachers. The Winner of the Middle School Section was Stephen Davies (8St) on the fute, while Jason Li’s (10Yo) violin performance was awarded the Senior Trophy. Our thanks are due to all those who partook in the Competition throughout the year, both boys and teachers. | Ron Ogier above l to r: Stephen Davies (8St), Ms Joanna Tondy and Jason Li (10Yo) Dîes prîma | Le premier jour | Der erste Tag By now, our Year 7s are old hands at the game, and may well have forgotten the assault on their senses of their frst day at High School, which was such a signifcant step forward in their education!
