Trinity News : November 2011
On August 26, we sadly farewelled Daniel Creasey, our current GAP student . Daniel, 21, hails from Maidstone, Kent, in South East England. He studied Sports Psychology and Coaching Sciences at Bournemouth University, and has been working with us as a Sports Intern for the last year. His work involved Junior School and Years 7 to 12 Specialist Cricket sessions, sport coaching sessions during lunchtimes and afternoons, Saturday Sport ( bringing the 10As to their most successful season to date) and refereeing and umpiring. Other duties involved sports administration, team sheet preparation, news boards, and organising kitbags and equipment. He also coached the 7Bs’ Football team during winter. In the Boarding House, Daniel had homework groups for the boys. He is returning to his studies to complete his degree and to gain the relevant teaching certificates which he hopes will enable his return to Trinity as an official teacher. Daniel would like to thank everyone at Trinity for what he has considered an amazing experience, and for the opportunity to see our ”amazing School and country”. He has stated firmly “I’ll be back!” Until which happy circumstance, we all join in wishing Daniel well. | Ron Ogier 14 TRINITY NEWS Just as we have the Super Fish in swimming and the Top Gun in the Head Master’s Dash, so we have what we may call the Bravissimi among our Music Students. Through the greater part of the year, a rigorous selection process eventually produced finalists who performed at the annual Concerto Competition concert on November 2. Unfortunately HSC And IB exams prevented the Year 12 students from taking part in the finals, and the field was therefore smaller this year. The quality of the performances, however, was not affected, and the audience appreciated the excellent work of the boys in both the Middle School section, won by pianist Leo Jiang (9Mu) and the Senior Section, won by trumpeter Charlie Bale (10La).Congratulations to them both, and also to the runners up, both cellists, Lien Zhu (7Hi) Middle School and Nicholas McManus (10 Fo) Senior School, Nor must we forget the work of all those who took part in the elimination heats; they helped raise the standard of competition to dazzling heights. It was a little disappointing that the audience was rather small. What you don’t have you don’t miss, it is said, but those who were present were treated to the refined gold of our music students! Thanks to all who assisted, especially Mr Phillip Pratt who adjudicated, and Mr Gregory Kinda, the accompanist. | Ron Ogier left: Concerto Winners: Leo Jiang (10 Mu), Piano; Charlie Bale (11La) Trumpet OUR GAP STUDENT LEAVES A GAP!
