Trinity News : July 2008
the Nones! Nonsense near The World of Ancient Greece and Rome made its annual time warp into Trinity Grammar School’s Dining Hall on A.D.III.NON.APR. MMDCCLXI.A.V.C., when Trinity was host to fourteen schools in the Sydney area which teach Latin and/or Classical Greek. There being a total guest list of 140, the Dining Hall was packed to capacity, and, indeed, this event, as it usually does, eclipses in numbers most other dinners held by the School, including those for Rugby, Football and Swimming! Many of the students came in appropriate costume: imperious emperors, authoritative centurions, pulchritudinous girls and stately matrons were all in evidence, and gave an extra ambience to the evening. Our Director of Studies, Mr Alan Harper, greeted the guests with a most felicitous speech wherein he emphasised the enormous contribution classical studies may make in both the students’ and society’s life. Grace was said by Peter Amditis (11Ar), and a most delicious meal was served, though no larks’ tongues nor stuffed nightingales, standard fare of the Roman emperors, were evident. The Trivia Antiqua, prepared as ever by our David Dixon, was really challenging this year requiring far too much thought after the rich repast! Following the awarding of various prizes for costumes, dessert was served, and after a period of much conversation over coffee and tea, the evening drew to a successful close. Our thanks are due to the Head of Classics, Ms Sandra Stark and her staff for such an entertaining and enjoyable night!
