Trinity News : July 2008
“I grumbled because I had no shoes, until I saw a man who had no feet.” My dad was apt to remark to me when I was a lad dissatisfied with something I did not have. Over the years the words have often resonated with me, and have, hopefully, made me more aware of the blessings which most of us enjoy in our lives. However, life is not always easy and pleasant for everyone, and there is a constant need for us to remember that there are many in our community who for whatever reason, have had to suffer hardship, pain and grief. It is both humbling and pleasing to be able to say that the lads of Trinity, when appealed to do so, willingly give support to various projects. The Charities Committee, composed of lads from Year 10, under the aegis of Mr Simon Bootle, organises various fund-raising efforts throughout the year, and the Forty-Hour Famine, the Mufti Days for Starlight Express, and Anglicare focus the School’s attention on helping provide the needs of those less fortunate. The various Houses have a charity which they support, and often run special projects during the term. Term 2, as well as the usual Mufti Day, also encompassed helping organisations such as the Salvation Army’s Red Shield Day, (Murphy House); LOUD Shirt Day for the Shepherd Centre, which caters for the needs of hearing impaired children (Stephenson House); Jelly Baby Day for Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (Dulwich House) and Sunnies Day to raise awareness of the Burma cyclone and Chinese earthquake victims (Henderson House). We thank all who contribute, often in novel ways to these various appeals, and trust that we both as a School and individually, may continue to help others as much as we are able to in the measure of our own circumstances, and hopefully not becoming “weary in well-doing” (Gal.6:9) Ron Ogier Murphy House Red Shield Appeal | $8,000 Dulwich House JDRF Appeal | $305 Stephenson House LOUD Shirt Day | TBA – Nearing Target being $4,000 (not yet finalized) Henderson House Sunglasses Appeal | Over $300 - $200 to Burma / $100+ to China Mufti Day | $1,000 + (not yet finalized) above: Murphy House Red Shield Salvation Army Appeal Group (opposite page, left column, top to bottom) top: Dulwich ‘Jelly Babies’ team, (L-R) Quang Nguyen, Jeremy Limanto, Tommy Lin, Elvis Long and Pierre Azzi second from top: Stephenson House LOUD indeed! middle: Because of the rainy weather hoodies were in fashion at the last Mufti Day! bottom: Jean-Paul Khoury, Robert Lister, Declan Long display their sunnies. 22 TRINITY NEWS Charities
