Trinity News : August 2011
TRINITY NEWS 21 GARY CATALANO FIRESIDE READINGS THE CINEMA AND THE STAGE Trinity has many large and spectacular events in the course of the year, but there are also many smaller events which are often quite spectacular also. Such an event was the HSC Drama and IB Film Expo Night on July 27. A total of fourteen items - six films, six individual drama performances and two group performances provided the audience with an excellent showcase of the talents of Year 12 students. The actors, directors, cinematographers and film editors presented situations ranging from the comic to the deeply emotional, and left no doubt as to the high standard of their work. The evening was, in effect, a trial run by the performers for later assessment, and with justifiable confidence, we wish the lads the best possible outcome for their efforts. | Ron Ogier On the rainy evening of June 2nd a gathering of students, their parents and English staff sat around a fireside in the Dining Hall in what seems to be one of the best kept secrets for a great night out at Trinity! This was the fireside readings by the annual Gary Catalano competition winners, an increasingly popular writing competition for Years 7-12. These students were invited to read their poetry and prose publicly, providing a truly enjoyable evening of warmth and stories, the climax of which was the presentation by the judge, Mr Will Davies, sometime boarder at Trinity, and now documentary director and author who entertained us with some excerpts from some of his works. We thank Mr Andrew Scott, the Head of the English Department, who organized judging and keeps the competition alight; Mr Davies who had the difficult task of choosing winners from a record number of entries and the master of ceremonies, Andrew Serb (9Ar), who kept up the heat between speakers! Finally, the greatest thanks to all the students who submitted entries this year to make this competition most vibrant. All students are invited to submit pieces for next year’s competition and kindle an interest in creative writing. | Andrew Serb (9Ar)
