Trinity News : August 2011
TRINITY NEWS 27 On 25 June a vibrant cohort of enthusiastic history students, teachers, friends and families left Sydney with open and eager minds to retrace the steps of our World War One Anzacs. In Paris, we embraced its colourful culture, unique cuisine and wonderful sites. Leaving was difficult, but the battlefields and the opportunity to appreciate the experiences of the AIF beckoned. We were not disappointed. Whether listening to Mr Robert Scott’s brilliant strategic analysis of the battlefield, finding ancestors in war cemeteries or scouring farmer’s crops for relics of battles - all helped us empathise with the Diggers. Soon we were in Istanbul, greeted by its heat, hustle and hawkers. We enjoyed the diversity that this very multicultural city offers, including the bazaars and mosques. Our dawn arrival at Gallipoli, a swim at Anzac Cove, and a trek up the hills and through the trenches provided a tangible sense of the qualities the AIF possessed to attack and endure here. On behalf of all tour members, I would like to thank our three accompanying teachers, Mr Robert Scott, Mr James St Julian and Mr Andrew Pierce, all of whom shared their comprehensive knowledge and provided much support throughout the whole tour. | David Magro (10ST) When Year Nine was greeted with the news they would be dancing with Meriden in several weeks, there was mixed reaction. Some boys smiled in anticipation, some shrugged their shoulders and some tried to sidle out of the room. In any case, after several awkward sessions of dancing with pretend partners, much to the amusement of younger spectators, it was time to brave no-man’s land. In truth, after everyone realised that it wasn’t so bad, they relaxed and just had fun walking up and down, turning around, doing it again and stopping to talk in the middle. | Evan Caddy (9Hi) YEAR 9 SOCIAL DANCE 2011 HISTORY TOUR OF AUSTRALIA’S WWI BATTLEFIELDS
