Trinity News : July 2008
ALUMNI FROM THE PRESIDENT OF THE OTU The OTU Careers Expo was recently held at the School; this year being just before the Year 10 Parent Information Night. This combination proved to be a great success due to the added encouragement of parents and the imminent task of selecting courses for Years 11 and 12. In recent years the OTU annual dinner has been replaced by individual year reunions and events such as the forthcoming ‘Back to Trinity Day’. The Back to Trinity Day is a great opportunity to watch the high standard of competition in 1st XI Football and 1st XV Rugby games, to catch up with other Old Boys and to reminisce about past sporting achievements – with a degree of embellishment of course. The Back to Trinity Day this year was on the 14th June starting from 12 noon with a casual get together for Old Boys at the conclusion of the rugby. As we are well into the year now, reunions are being organised for appropriate years (ie years of leaving ending in 8 or 3). Please contact Mr Stephen Heanly, at the School, or your year co-ordinator if you are interested in organising a reunion or have not been advised of or invited to a reunion yet. I have so far attended all three of the reunions organised for my year (1979). All have been fascinating and thoroughly enjoyable events. It is always interesting to see how the lives of your peers have developed, how much they have changed personally and to draw the parallels with your own life. It is also great to observe the deep and genuine sense of friendship that has continued despite the years that have passed since leaving School. Ric Otton | President THE HEANLY REPORT We have had some wonderful gatherings this year. The Generations Breakfast again was a huge success with Michael Collins (Yr 12 2008) our third generation guest speaker, and our Careers Expo was also extremely well attended. As I write this report the Back to Trinity Day is approaching and I am looking forward to seeing a large number of Old Boys gather to watch the Football and Rugby. Do you know about our Partners and Supporters Programme? Our Partners and Supporters Programme provides a flexible approach to philanthropic support from companies and businesses associated with Trinity. Essentially, we are happy to offer, for no upfront costs, advertising and promotion benefits to businesses of our broader Trinity community. Please feel free to contact me if this is of interest to you.
