Trinity News : April 2008
28 TRINITY NEWS Term 1 is always one of the busiest terms of the year at the Preparatory School. Year 4-6 have competed in our traditional Summer Sport Programme, competing in Cricket, Basketball, Tee Ball and Softball against other JSHAA schools on Saturday or boys have been involved in our internal Oztag, Swimming or Track & Field. Our Year 3 boys have not been involved in Saturday Sport, rather they have started a new initiative. This involves every Preparatory and Junior School boy participating in skill sessions and colour games in the sports of Basketball, Cricket, Rugby and Football in addition to Swimming and Track & Field. One of the positives of this is that any boy who has not been able to swim has been involved in a series of Learn to Swim Lessons in their sport time. This has resulted in vast improvements in these boys, hopefully achieving our aim of having every boy able to meet minimum swimming requirements. Summer Sport The highlight of our Summer Sport programme, was, without a doubt, the success in the annual Loxton Cup fixture between Toowoomba Prep School and our combined Preparatory and Junior School 1st XI cricket team. Not only did the boys win this game, but they also defeated Toowoomba Grammar School on their Qld Tour. This is certainly the first time Trinity has won both of these games in the same year. House Swimming Miss Wilson in her inaugural year as Housemaster was well pleased with the effort of Hilliard House this year in winning the House Swimming. It was a family affair for the Artemi boys this year. James was U/8 champion, while Chris was the runner up and Blake was the champion in the U/10 age group. Special mention must also be made of Peter Kostoglou (U/9), Edward Zammit (U/11) and James Traiforos (Open) who were also age champions. The School team swam well in the lead-up Newington and South Harbour Invitations, while at the JSHAA they also represented with distinction. From the 47 schools that swam at this carnival a JSHAA team is selected. It was most pleasing that our swimming captain, James Traiforos, Blake Artemi and James Artemi were selected for individual events while Peter Kostoglou, Chris Artemi and Emmanuel Vardakis were selected as part of the Junior relay along with Blake. We now move into our Cross Country season and then Winter sport, which includes a combined Rugby tour to Armidale as well as Rugby and Football tour to New Zealand in June.
