Trinity News : April 2011
22 TRINITY NEWS Apples and oranges, so hard to judge between, as the adjudicator Mr Kinda said of the competitors in the Concerto Finalists Concert last October 28th, when giving his adjudication. And truly, what apples and oranges they were! Each young musician whether from the Middle School or the Senior School was the undoubted master of his instrument, whether trumpet, trombone, clarinet, cello or violin. Distilled from an auditions programme over the last two terms, the six musicians gave the audience the very essence of their undoubted talents in an out pouring of music which stirred the hearts of those present. There is no doubt that with talented young musicians as these, music at Trinity is in great heart. Congratulations to all concerned, including the accompanists who added their lustre to that of the soloists, and especially to the winners of the Competition: Middle School, Stephen Davies (10St) Clarinet; and Senior School, Jason Li (12Yo) Violin. | Ron Ogier below: l-r: Stephen Davies (10St), Mr Kinda and Jason Li (12Yo) bottom: l-r: Jonathan Watson (11We), Jason Li (12Yo), Mr Greg Kinda, Stephen Davies (10St), William Goh (12Sc) and William Sandwell (12Sc) The Mathematics department at Trinity Grammar School has established a Maths Club for 40 registered boys from Years 8-12 to provide enjoyment and training in advanced thinking for recreation. A formulated programme in line with the Practice of Teaching at Trinity has been established to foster and encourage boys greater understanding of mathematics, encouraging activities, discussion opportunities in Mathematics research and related mathematical experiences, and providing a social and intellectual forum to all boys interested in experiencing mathematics. The Club at Trinity provides various opportunities for students (with a range of mathematical abilities) to take part in mathematical activities and events The idea that the School Badge represents the concepts of Mind, Body and Spirit as the components of a equilateral triangle is well known of course, but perhaps the Spiritual aspect is not as much in the public eye as are the sporting achievements or the scholastic attainments of the boys. Yet this most important aspect pervades the School in a quiet way through the School Prayer each morning at Quad assembly, the weekly House Chapel services and the formal classes in Christian Studies. Added to these, is the co- curricular group Berea, wherein boys are able to learn about and discuss Christian Leadership in more informal breakfast sessions run under the auspices of Dr Chris Thanopoulos and the Rev Peter Wrench. The boys also conduct lunchtime fellowship meetings for their peers in the Senior and Middle Schools. A high point of their work involves the weekend long Fuel Camp, in conjunction with groups from Meriden , while during Activities Week groups take Christian Studies lessons at the Lewisham and Strathfield Campuses. It is most pleasing to note the efforts of the boys involved in Christian leadership within the School.
