Trinity News : July 2008
The trumpet’s loud clangour excites us to arms as Cowper’s Ode to St Cecilia puts it…though it was not to arms, but rather to legs, that Messrs Rob Prero and Andrew Del Riccio called us on the last day of term when, after a successful run of heats the preceding week, the Head Master’s Dash Finals were held to ascertain who is the School’s fastest runner for 2008. Once again the cream of Trinity’s runners had risen to the top, and there were many exciting moments as the final races unfolded. The School was much in attendance, and their cheering on of the various competitors added greatly to the spirit of friendly competition which characterises this annual event. The Dash covers all years from Prep and Junior School Year 6 through to Year 12, the Old Boys, and the Staff, plus an exhibition race between Staff and Old Boys. The event is more than a mere fun thing, though there is that element in it, for it serves to heighten the School’s awareness of the forthcoming Track and Field season, and as such gives the lads involved valuable incentive in their preparation for that. Congratulations to all on the Track and Field staff who organised the various days: it was a most enjoyable occasion. In the two weeks before Mothers’ Day, many a lad in the School was preparing to honour his Mum by purchasing something from the Mothers’ Day Stall which was set up in Hurlstone Court by the Junior School Auxiliary under the aegis of Mrs Tracy Needham. The stall was later set up in the breezeway near the Assembly hall for the Senior School lads to avail themselves of its goodies for Mum. In another area of the School the Science Club boys displayed their initiative by making and packaging “Bath Bombs” for Mum. | Ron Ogier Ron Ogier above: Mothers Day Stall in Hurlstone Court below: Pradeep Murphy (La), Arjun Sivaji (Hi) and Danial Syed (Yo) package their “Bath Bombs.” top: L-R: Mathew Wise (12Ar), Andrew Vernon (10WJ) and Ahelish Satchithananda (12St) – fight it out in the final! middle: The competition received great support from the spectators! bottom left to right: Messrs Mark Goldsworthy, Martin Lubrano and Greg Webster after their race TRINITY NEWS 17 mothers’ day
