Trinity News : April 2011
24 TRINITY NEWS Schools, like armies, march on their stomachs, and Trinity is no exception! A few statistics from the Cafeteria: Breakfast 110 Egg and Bacon Rolls; 50 Hash Browns Break 100 pizzas; 20 Kg Chicken nuggets Lunch 30Kg Butter Chicken; 30Kg Fried rice Mrs Bihar and her volunteers send few lads away hungry! Food for many decades has been supplied in the area of the present Cafeteria. In 1966 the Tuck Shop was located on the south western corner of what was once the Coach House of the original buildings on the site. While the Assembly Hall was being built in 1974, the tuck shop moved to the lower floor of the present Design Centre, returning in 1975 as the Canteen to its location almost exactly on the spot of the Tuck Shop. In 2002, the area was remodelled into the cafeteria of today. The Canteen still operates, in the Design Centre. Coupled with the excellent catering service we receive from Mrs Olive Douglas of the Sodexho Group for many events it is no wonder that the new Gym under No. 2 Oval is also fully used, so that our boys keep their weight down! We thank all who staff these facilities, both as professionals and volunteers! | Ron Ogier top left: Boys selecting from the array of food left: Happy Mums in the Cafeteria (l-r) Mesdames Jackie Lam, Jennifer Ellis, Cheryl Kerr, Gail Kulkarni, Amanda Hooper and Martina Drivas Trinity Grammar School families from the Preparatory School, Junior School and Senior School again showed how welcoming and friendly they are by billeting ten students and a teacher from our link school, Rendafuzhong School, Beijing, China. Rendafuzhong School, also known as the Middle School Attached to the Peoples University, Beijing, is one of the most prestigious and academically strong schools in all of China. Their students often graduate to the top universities in China and around the world to become world leaders in their chosen fields. Trinity Grammar School had a long standing relationship with the school and established an exchange agreement in 1999. To date we have taken students and families from the Junior, Preparatory and Senior Schools, to China over twelve times. These visits give the students and families an opportunity to see the real China, visiting famous sites and the students from the Senior School being billeted to local Chinese families from RDFZ School. The reciprocal visit this year strengthened the relationship between the two schools. Special thanks to the families and staff who hosted the visitors and to the Headmaster, Mr Cujes, for his ongoing support. We look forward to our visit to China in 2012.
