From the Headmaster 

YEAR 11 AND 12 PARENT TEACHER STUDENT INTERVIEWS 

I thank all the parents who accepted the opportunity for these interviews, which were held last Wednesday. Hopefully these conferences allowed goals to be set and plans to be made to ensure a successful last semester. My thanks are also extended to the Year 11 & 12 teachers who made themselves available for these interviews. 

MUSIC PROGRAM

As the term draws to a close it is fitting to thank everyone involved with our music program. I especially acknowledge the Mercedes staff and students, who are an integral part of so many of our orchestras and choirs. Anyone who experienced last Friday night’s Senior Music night will know what I mean.  I would encourage you to attend the Catholic Performing Arts Festival to see the culmination of the students’ hard work during the year.

1st TEAMS SPORT

Yesterday, our First teams played their fixture against Guildford Grammar; the arrangement of two Thursday afternoon fixtures began a number of years ago in order to provide two full rounds of Winter Sport for our First teams.

Results of this fixture against Guildford will be published in a newsletter next term.

THINKFEST ENGINEERING DAY

The inaugural THINKfest day on Thursday, 14 June for Year 5 GATE students was a great success. Oliver Jamieson (5W) said, "We were challenged in more than one way." Finn Stenning-Alexander (5B) said, "As the title suggests, it was mostly about thinking!" Luke Chapman (5W) said, "We participated in complicated and brain-racking activities, including engineering, philosophy and problem-solving." Thomas Sinclair (5G) said, "I thought it was amazing that we got to meet Josh Richards, who could be one of the four people to go to Mars!" Oliver Nguyen (5B) said, "I loved working with children from different schools and being challenged by all the fun activities!" Westlee Terrell (5B) said, "I enjoyed that different schools came together in a non-competitive environment." Michael Hall (5G) said, "The idea of the day was to cooperate in different situations. We were working in a completely different environment because we were working with girls."

I wish him well as he journeys onto the next phase of his professional career.

Please also complete the Parent Response Sheet and return it to school during the first week of next term.

YEAR 9 DANCE SOCIAL AT MERCEDES

Last Tuesday, 19 June, the Year 9 Trinity students had their Social with Mercedes – an organised dance evening with a 1950’s theme. As well as providing an opportunity to forge positive friendships, the night was a culmination of seven weeks of ballroom dancing lessons, run by Gilkison’s Dance Studio, where the students had been taught several ballroom dances. These included solo and partner dances such as the Cha Cha, Progressive Jive, Hucklebuck and Barndance to name a few.

On the night, the boys got the chance to put their new dancing skills into practice, as well as having some time to showcase their own dance style; and the night was an enormous success. The boys (and their mothers most likely) came up with some great outfits and got right into the spirit of the event, representing the College exceptionally well. Also dressed to impress was our legendary team of Year 9 PCG teachers whose support, along with support from a team of our Senior Prefects, played a big part in the success of the evening, so big thanks goes to them. I’d like to make special mention that Mr Ivan Banks, College Headmaster, also took time out of his busy schedule to socialise with the boys and it was clear for all to see that they thrived in his presence.

Ryan, Kay and the other instructors from Gilkison’s did a marvellous job in teaching the students and on behalf of the Year 9 College Community, I’d like to extend our sincere gratitude to them for their patient efforts over the seven weeks of lessons. Special mention to Ryan especially, for directing the dancing at the Social and being the DJ, which was a job that came with considerable student pressure!

The staff and students at Mercedes put a great deal of effort into the preparation for the evening, decorating the hall brilliantly and organising supper for the students. The girls looked fantastic, with many of their dresses and outfits being made at school during sewing/textile classes. On this note, I’d like to reserve a special thank you to all Mercedes staff and students but especially Mrs Lara Vlahov (Head of Year 9), for all their hard work in preparing and coordinating the Social – you all did a fantastic job and the students had a great night!

It would be remiss of me not to acknowledge the excellent behaviour of the boys and I hope they continue to make the College proud for the rest of this year and beyond.

Mr Andrew Jenkin | Head of Year 9

YEAR 10 STUDENTS VISIT 'GET INTO RESOURCES' DAY

Last Thursday, a group of Year 10 students attended the annual Resources Industry Careers Expo at North Metropolitan TAFE in Northbridge. They attended a carousel of presentations tailored to their likely pathway in senior school and beyond. The activities included metal extraction from Copper Ore, welding training using VR headsets, Occupational Health and Safety and underground mining, using the facility’s replica of a working gold mine. After an enjoyable day, all the boys had a better awareness of the contributions that the resources industry makes to our society and the many and varied job opportunities available.

Mr Craig Adams | Science Teacher

CAREERS IN MINING 

On Wednesday, a group of 20 students from Years 10 to 12 attended a presentation from Old Boy Matt FitzGibbon ('05) on various roles available in the mining industry. The talk centred on the need for increased numbers of Mining Engineers to meet the expected increase in demand. Students were also shown the wide range of jobs available on a working goldmine from electricians, plant operators to mine managers. Matt brought along some core samples and a gold bar worth $15,000. A big thanks to Matt for coming back to the College and sharing his experiences.

Mr Russell Hinks | Careers Counsellor 

KIMBERLEY IMMERSION

A group of Year 11 students and staff have travelled up to the Kimberley to spend some time with the Australian Indigenous people who live there. Over the next few weeks, they will embark on a series of Christian Service assignments that will prove both heart-warming and challenging. 

TRINITY ABORIGINAL DANCE GROUP PERFORMANCES

On Wednesday, our Trinity Aboriginal Dance Group helped Chisholm Catholic College, Perth celebrate National NAIDOC Week with a corroboree, 'The Hunter’s Dance'. The moving performance was put together by Trinity Old Boy, Jake Cox ('11), in collaboration with current students. The dance group also performed at West Balcatta Primary School on Tuesday

TC BAND DIVERSITY TO PERFORM AT OPTUS STADIUM ON 15 JULY

Ben Tucker (9.2)
Visit to Swan View Primary School as part of the service component of the Duke of Edinburgh

Hi, my name is Ben Tucker and I am in 9.2. When I was first informed about the Duke of Edinburgh program, I wasn’t sure if I was going to commit to it. Mum told me it was a big task to do but I still wasn’t swayed until she said it would be a great way to develop my leadership skills and try new things. I want to be the best that I can be and through the program I have pushed myself to try new things. A typical week for me involves cross country training on Monday, Wednesday and Friday, Junior School football coaching on Tuesday mornings and regular choir rehearsals on Monday and Friday mornings. On Thursday, I attended Swan View Primary School and helped make lunches for the children there as part of my service component of the award. I love every part of the award and the way you really challenge yourself for the better.

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. 

Please click here to read the flyer for the workshop. If you have any concerns, please contact Ms Lissa Coleman, Director of Inclusive Education, at Trinity College.
