Trinity News : August 2011
TRINITY NEWS 11 After millennia of non-existence, Rome surfaced in its utmost glory on the 31st March 2011 as the Caesars, Ovidii, divinities and even the servi were resurrected in the Trinity Dining Hall for the momentous Classics Dinner. Tensions arose as enduring political scandals were re-ignited and ancient feuds reborn. The night progressed with students mingling together and complimenting the craftsmanship of one another’s costumes and in some cases, shall we say, the ludicrousness of makeshift tablecloth capes and toilet brush plumes! Congratulations to PLC Sydney, elegantly dressed as a band of goddesses, for winning the evening’s costume competition. Our own Trinity boys managed to emerge victorious with their array of Roman figures. As usual, it was a nox laeta (a joyous night) for all students as they explored their Classical interests and forged new friendships. Our thanks must extend to our dedicated Latin staff: Ms Stark, Mr Latimer and Mr Hayward, for organising the event. | David William Lai from left: Alex Tripolone, Liam Garman, Shehan Canagasingham, Miles Katay, Leon Skouras, William Havellas, David Lai, John Di Ciaccio, Peter Petrohilos, Jonathan Watson ( in mask). LOOK WHAT THE LORD HAS DONE! Years ago when I used to teach Junior Sunday school class, the children loved to sing a song; “Look what the Lord has done...” This memory returned as I watched our Abercrombie river flow by, “mixed with the sound of water’s murmuring,” swift flowing, full of life again, running deep and glorious. After eleven years of serious drought, I doubted if I would ever see the river restored. Well, look what the Lord has done! For the once again we can boast of a new, fun, action-packed, safe water programme. With a fully restored river, Pine Bluff has greatly expanded its activities, the camps now enjoying water sports of all kinds; swimming, fishing, canoeing, raft-building, model boat sailing, the game “shipwrecked” and for some just a cool paddle. Also, the camps offer a fun and exhilarating, ‘Pine Bluff Iron Man Challenge.’ Boys begin the 3km hill run on the oval, circle down to the river, swim 300 metres around the buoys to the other side of the river bank and back, shoot an arrow or two for a bullseye, then do 20 testing push-ups before running to the finish line at the campus flagpole. The riverbank offers space for much cheering on of the competitors, and the winner gains the Pine Bluff Wooden Oar Trophy, awarded at his camp’s final night celebrations.
