Trinity News : August 2012
In the periods of the School week, much knowledge is imparted to our boys, and if some test of its importance and permanence were to be applied, surely the mat- ters presented and discussed in Christian Studies and Chapel would be the lead- ers. Then too, informal chats and talks in both lessons and extracurricular activities are important, but perhaps the distillation of such imparting of knowledge is dur- ing the Easter Mission‘s special emphasis on presenting the gospel of Jesus Christ. This year the Mission was held on the Tuesday and Wednesday of Holy Week, with sessions for Years 7 to 12 in the Assembly Hall, and an all years' lunch-time meet- ing in the Latham Theatre. Jesus Hates Religion was the theme, and Missioner Rev- erend Dave Miers presented it vividly to the boys, by a challenging address as well as a Youtube presentation on the topic, while the Band ‘Chasing Light’ presented several numbers. Who knows when and how a person may be moved by the faith- fully presented Christian message of the love of God and the claims on our lives by Jesus Christ? Our prayer is that many seeds may have been sown in these two days, adding to those sown in the course of the School’s normal weeks, and that great things for the Lord will come as these seeds grow to fruition in ways we may not know or expect.

It is around the Quadrangle with its close proximity to the War Memorial Chapel that we gather as a School, where the School Prayer is said by all, and where, on days such as the ANZAC ceremony, it becomes hallowed ground as we remember the sacrifices of those men who once walked where we walk today. Five members of the First XV for 1939 were among those who made this sacrifice, and we remember as well all who gave their lives in the Wars of the last century. Recent research has revealed that there were many more than had been recognised earlier, so that the line of memorial Crosses on the Quad sadly has become two lines, and our gratitude has deepened. The shadows and the sunlight on the lawn remind us of the sorrow that war brings, and of the shining sacrifice of those who died. The Ode, the turning of the page of the Book of Remembrance, the Last Post and Reveille, the Catafalque Party, the reading of the names of those who gave their lives all were poignant reminders of this most solemn day in our School’s heritage. | Ron Ogier EASTERMISSION2012 ANZAC SERVICES
