Trinity News : August 2011
10 TRINITY NEWS “Expos” are in fashion at this time of term! Hot on the heels of the Drama and Film night, came the display of the major works of the Year 12 Students in Design and Technology. Once again much originality and inspiration of thought was evident, as the lads conceived, researched, designed developed and produced their project. Designs included a revolutionarily designed powerboard, a boat trailer, a shoe storage container,and dissovling tent pegs, and these and all the works exhibited high levels of skill in their construction. We wish the D&T boys all the best in their final assessments. | Ron Ogier clockwise from right: Jason Weissberger (12Fo) Redesigned Clothes Peg | Adam Van Der Leeden (12Ta) Eco Tent Peg | Hayden Wright (12WJ) Dual-hulled Boat Trailer for sand travel | Sam Haddo (12WH) Flat Pack Housing I grew up in China. My parents sent me to Trinity to get an education in Year 7. I was excited about going to School in Australia, but also a bit fearful about living in another country. It was difficult, but at every turn there was a new surprise, new food, a new environment, and new people to meet. With its different culture, different schooling methods and different ways of learning, Trinity was frightening at first, but it became a thrilling experience, a once-in-a -life time opportunity. I have gained such wisdom and joy at Trinity and in the Boarding House that I will never forget the place. Making good friendships with Australian and other International boys has been something which I never thought possible back in Year 7! Experiencing two types of cultures has advantages. A fellow Boarder needed a hair cut last term, so I took him to a Chinese Hair Salon in Ashfield. When I conversed with the barber in fluent Mandarin, my friend was awestruck when he realised that I was a bilingual student! The experience of being an international Boarder has been an enjoyable encounter that will stay with me for the rest of my life. | Jared Wang (11) Ni Hao Mate!
