From the Headmaster 

YEAR 10 COURSE INFORMATION EVENING 

Thank you to the large number of Year 10 students and parents who attended the Year 10 Course Information Evening on Tuesday night. I hope all who attended found it a very informative evening. I would like to thank Deputy Principal of Years 8, 10 and 12, Mr Tim Hince and Careers Advisor Mr Russell Hinks. I would also like to thank the staff who attended from a variety of Departments who offered our students some sound advice about the subjects offered in their Learning Areas.

CHRISTIAN SERVICE ASSEMBLY

Congratulations to the 64 Year 12 students who were awarded Half and Full Colours for Christian Service at Tuesday’s Christian Service Assembly. These inspirational young role models are truly Men for Others. It is hoped that their example will inspire our younger students to answer the call to serve and to stand in solidarity with the poor and marginalised in our society. I would also like to thank our Director of Christian Service, Mrs Marya Stewart, for the amazing work that she does with our Christian Service Program.

This assembly allowed a number of our Senior students to talk about their experiences from participating in our Christian Service programs. I would like to thank Timothy Feasey (12.4), Alexander Galante (12.6), Dean Law Yim Wan (12.7), Tom Payne (12.6) and Damian Pisano (12.4) for sharing their experiences.

Christian Service is an important part of who we are as a school, and allows us to live out our Mantra of being ‘Men for Others’.

Also at this assembly, we were pleased to hear from Dimitri Tsagaris (11.7) who gave his reflections on his trip to the Australian Parliament in Canberra.

YEAR 9 DANCE SOCIAL AT MERCEDES 

Well done to all our Year 9 students who represented themselves and the College with pride at Tuesday night’s Year 9 Dance Social at Mercedes. This social is the culmination of seven weeks of dancing lessons for all our Year 9 boys and Year 9 Mercedes ladies. There were some outstanding 50s outfits on display, including our Head of Year 9, Mr Andrew Jenkin. I would like to sincerely thank the Year 9 PCG Teachers for all their efforts with the dance program this term. I know the Year 9 students certainly appreciated it!

YEAR 4 SPHERO PRESENTATION

On Tuesday, the Year 4 boys presented the culmination of what they have been learning this term. In an integrated unit, the boys built an environment based on an animal they had been researching after visiting the Perth Zoo. Then using coding skills, the boys programmed a Sphero to move around the shelter to replicate the movements of the animal they researched. For example, a lion leaving its den to look for food. Well done to the boys on presenting what was a very engaging and interactive display of their learning this term.

PREFECTS' CORNER

This week, the classes have been working hard academically, even with the short time before the first semester is over! On Monday, we had our weekly gathering. Mr Tucker gave announcements for us to get ready for the exciting week. On Tuesday, the students from Years 5 and 6 got up early for a Sport training session with their coaches. Even with having a bye for sport fixtures on Thursday, the boys still gave 100 percent. Wednesday was very comfortable as the students donated a gold coin to Edmund Rice Camps for Kids. By doing this, the students got to wear free dress and there were lots of colourful characters. On this day, Year 11s also prepared a sausage sizzle with soft drinks. Many kids got a delicious lunch and all the funding was donated.

This semester is nearly over! Not yet, but soon, all the students will have a break and spend time with their family. There is much more to look forward to in the future and next week. We are all so excited!

PREFECTS' NETBALL MATCH AT MERCEDES COLLEGE TO RAISE MONEY FOR BREAST CANCER FOUNDATION WA

On Monday, the Prefects attended Mercedes College to continue the annual tradition of a netball match between the Prefects of the two schools to raise money for the Breast Cancer Foundation of WA. Decked out in the Trinity blue with a pink highlight to represent the McGrath foundation, the lads were keen to impress and bring home the silverware. 

The atmosphere was as imposing as AFL Grand Final day in September and the arena was quickly dubbed the MCG (Mercedes College Gymnasium). The professional warm-ups led by coach, Zac Hayward (12.2), featured a quick passing and shooting drill, although the latter would not be utilised too much in the first half. 

Finally, the time came and the first team rolled onto the court. An early surge from Mercedes led to a quick goal, but rock-solid defence from Owen Milburn (12.6) and Anthony Carbone (12.8) prevented any more scoring for the quarter. 

Immaculate ball movement from gun centre Max Thorniley (12.5), well supported in the wings by Harrison Pell (12.3) and Jack Clear (12.6), led to repeat inside 50s for the Trinity side, with the eventual two first-half goals not reflective of the effort shown by the team. Asher Fatin (12.1) and Joseph Pinto (12.8) presented strongly in the forward line, but struggled to convert due to questionable shooting actions.

Half-time came and there was a change of tactics, brought on by Assistant-Coach, Mr Clint Testa, and this led to one of the best halves ever seen by a Trinity side in netball. Led by Josh Martelli (12.4) in the centre, the midfield surged at every opportunity leading to high scoring play for the half. 

Alongside William Gilbert (12.8) and Ethan Bradley (12.4) on the wings, Martelli delivered the ball high into what could only be compared to a combination similar to that of Jack Darling and Josh Kennedy: Daniel Fitzgerald (12.2) and Sean Carroll (12.3). Fitzgerald was leading scorer for the day by a long shot, whilst Carroll secured a few points for himself, and set up many more. Ray Teakle (12.1) worked hard in the backline, but a poor game from Head Boy Jeremy Hansen (12.4) ultimately led to a late surge by the home team. 

But the boys from Trinity hung on to secure 10-8 score line by the final siren. Most importantly, the boys were glad to support a good cause and raise some money for the McGrath foundation.

Brownlow Votes – 3-Fitzgerald 2-Martelli 1-Thorniley

TRINITY COLLEGE ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITTEE - INNOVATIVE RECYCLING OF PLASTIC BOTTLES FOR 3D PRINTERS FILAMENT 

Last Friday morning, the students of the Trinity College Environmental Committee (Years 8 and 11) visited Aquinas College in order to find out more about how to implement an innovative recycling program at the College. TCEC are at the beginning stages of working with a not for profit organisation called Greenbatch, who are working with schools to turn plastic bottles into filament for 3D printers. Working together with Greenbatch, the TCEC wants to start collecting PET 1 plastic bottles at school. Greenbatch collects and processes the plastic bottles into the filament which we can use in our 3D printers. Mr Grant Haggerty (Director of ICT Integration and Innovation) at Aquinas College was kind enough to let us visit and talk us through ways in which Aquinas has implemented the program at the College. Using his tips, the TCEC are keen to get on board with this sustainabilty project. The TCEC look forward to being able to update the College community very soon about how everyone can help with this initiative.

PARLIAMENT HOUSE VISIT

Last Thursday afternoon, the Team 3 Nepal Service Expedition students visited Parliament House for afternoon tea with Mr John Carey (MLA). John had donated to one of the student's ‘Go Fund Me Page’ to attend the expedition and was keen to hear how the expedition went, what the highlights were and what the students reflections on the whole experience were. The group were seated around the table in the beautiful Aboriginal People’s Room and Gallery at Parliament House and spoke about their time in Nepal and what they had learned while overseas. Thank you to Michael Thomas (11.1) for presenting Mr John Carey with a gift and also Simon Homsany (11.4) for speaking on behalf of the group.

ROAMING REPTILES VISIT THE LIBRARY

Cass Rowles from Roaming Reptile Education visited the Senior Library on Monday this week with a travelling display of Western Australian reptiles – George the bobtail lizard, Wilma the woma python, Ferdinand the frilled-neck lizard, and Fluffy the carpet python. There was a large crowd of very interested boys, who were all able to hold and touch the reptiles, as well as ask Cass questions about them. Many of the boys were fascinated with how the reptiles actually felt; ‘Fluffy’, in particular, was very mobile and strong and happy to slither around arms and necks – everyone learned that her belly was actually a bit ticklish! 

Mrs Emma McLevie | Library Technician

My name is Nathan Le from 9.4. I chose to participate in the Duke of Edinburgh program as I believe I will develop essential leadership qualities by completing the program, such as serving others and being open to new things and opportunities that can further develop new skills. The program involves getting involved in a variety of activities for physical recreation, skill and service. During the week, I focus on going to soccer trainings and competing in Friday afternoon games to achieve my goal of becoming a better player. For my skill, every Friday morning, I go to Middle School Chorale Rehearsal. I enjoy doing all the varied activities for the program, but the highlight of my journey so far was the camp I participated in.

TRINITY COLLEGE ONLINE REFERENCING TOOL - CITEMAKER

The College Library has recently invested in an online referencing tool called Citemaker. Customised specifically for Trinity College and its use of APA referencing, Citemaker will guide students step by step through the process of creating correctly formatted references for assignments etc. It allows students to navigate through a myriad of referencing possibilities – online, print, and many other sources. Students can also sign up for an account, which enables them to save reference lists or they can simply copy and paste references they create at any one time. The site also offers jAPA which is a ‘junior’ version of the tool – allowing students to create references from a less complex list of possible sources.

Does your son have Dyslexia? This may be of interest to you. The Dyslexia Speld Foundation is running a two day workshop for students with Dyslexia during the upcoming school holidays. It is not the severity of the learning difficulty that determines how well a student will succeed, but their level of adaptive functioning. In other words, how well they accept their difficulty and use the strategies to support them.
