From the Headmaster 

THE CHALLENGE TO BE INCLUSIVE

One of the priorities for our College is that it remains a community which is distinguishable by its commitment to being inclusive. This aspiration is expressed through one of the four Touchstones which form the basis of the Charter for all Catholic schools in the Edmund Rice Tradition. Our parent entity (EREA) expresses this imperative in the following way, "Our community is accepting and welcoming, fostering right relationship and committed to the common good."

There are many ways in which we satisfy this criterion. Among them, we seek to ensure a pastoral care system and set of practices which nurtures the dignity of each individual; we acknowledge parents as the primary educators of their children and seek ways to engage them at the College; and we recognise the cultural heritage of all Indigenous people and welcome them as part of our school.

On Tuesday we conducted our annual NAIDOC Assembly. It provided the opportunity to celebrate Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures and to recognise the contributions that Indigenous Australians make to our school and our country. Our very accomplished student MC’s on this occasion were Malaki Rodoreda (12.2) and Lachie Sibosado (11.7). A special guest at our assembly was Ms Robyn Collard who offered a Welcome to Country and spoke to the gathering about the significance of the strong female members of her family. This resonated well with the theme of NAIDOC week this year which is, ‘Because of her, we can.’

Those in attendance were also able to enjoy the wonderful talents of our boys in the areas of music, dance and art. A particular feature was a performance by one of our parents, Mr David Pigram, who sang about his affection for his home in Broome. To read more about Trinity's NAIDOC Assembly, click here

At Trinity we must seek to be a community which is inclusive and in which all members are reconciled with each other. Everyone is welcome to be a part of our school and, within this environment, our boys are taught that difference is something to be respected and celebrated. Unfortunately, this is not always evident in our broader society which comprises those who are supportive of attempts at reconciliation, sceptics and those afflicted with apathy. Many people lack the will or the confidence to believe that meaningful reconciliation with the original inhabitants of this land is achievable. I thank you as always for the support you offer in each of your homes in advocating a contrary view.

It is hoped that the modelling which is provided by our school community and in your homes may offer inspiration and suggest possibilities for society in general. It is further hoped that the individual and specific experiences of our boys while at school will inspire them to be positive agents for change. This is critical work in ensuring that our College fully embraces and reflects the EREA touchstone of Justice and Solidarity.

PARENT COUNCIL

Last Tuesday night the Parent Council held their Annual General Meeting. Confirmed at this meeting were office bearers for this coming year and I thank Mr Leon Jennings for continuing in the position of Chairperson, Mrs Caterina Carcich and Mrs Nancy Siciliano as Deputy Chairpersons, Mrs Cate Bertram has returned as Treasurer with Mr Terry Dillon as Assistant Treasurer, Mrs Beverly Martinez as Secretary and Mrs Michelle Rapkoch has returned as Parent Ball Co-ordinator, with Parent Ball Assistants Mrs Nancy Siciliano and Mrs Caterina Carcich. Thank you to Mr David Wilkins who will continue to represent the Parent Council at the TC Fathers for Others meetings. Also thank you to Mr Peter Norman for representing College Leadership.

The Council said farewell to Mr Paul Spadoni and Mr Anthony Olivieri who have given many years of dedicated service to the Council. We sincerely thank them for their contribution and commitment to the College.

We also welcome the four new members to the Council: Mr Jeremy Nicoletto, Mr Terry Dillon, Mr Richard Park and Mrs Filomena Piffaretti.

The Parent Council provides a wonderful service to the College and I thank everyone involved. 

Mr Shaun Kenny | Acting Headmaster

 


Upcoming College Events

FEAST OF ASSUMPTION MASS

On Wednesday, 15 August at 8:40am the whole school will gather together for the Feast of the Assumption Mass in the College Sports Centre. All parents are warmly invited to join us for this Mass. 

COLLEGE AUXILIARY MORNING TEA – FRIDAY, 17 AUGUST

I hope you have Friday, 17 August in your diary. This is the date of the College Auxiliary Annual Morning Tea (10:00am-12:00pm) and is the highlight of the Trinity College Social Calendar. This year the Auxiliary have invited Dr Maria Vanessa Atienza-Hipolito as Guest Speaker. Dr Atienza-Hipolito will speak about her leadership within the Women's and Breast Imaging Centre in Cottesloe and her many years' experience in the Radiology profession. Dr Atienza-Hipolito completed her Radiology training overseas and undertook sub-specialty fellowship training in Breast Imaging at Royal Perth Hospital (RPH) and Sir Charles Gairdner Hospital (SCGH), Musculoskeletal Imaging at RPH, Interventional and Vascular Radiology at SCGH and Paediatric Radiology at Princess Margaret Hospital. She worked for BreastScreen WA from 2014 to 2017. Currently, she is leading the team at Women’s and Breast Imaging in Cottesloe as the Clinical Director and Principal Breast Imaging Specialist.

The ladies of the College Auxiliary are working hard behind the scenes to ensure that this wonderful event will be as successful this year as it has always been in the past. The Auxiliary rely on our community to contribute to this event to ensure its success. Emails were sent home to families in Years 9, 10 and 11 requesting help with providing food for the morning tea, and to Year 7 families asking for donations for the ever-popular College Auxiliary raffle held on the morning. The famous TC community spirit is always abundantly evident at this event, and your contribution is greatly valued.

Please note that parking is available at Gloucester Park for people attending the College Auxiliary Morning Tea. All cars must have left the carpark by 1pm, however, as it is Race Day at Gloucester Park. 

Any inquiries to Mrs Beverly Martinez at martinez.beverly@trinity.wa.edu.au.

WINTER SPORT WINDUPS

This week will see our final fixture for the Winter Season. All sports are organising a wind-up and trophy presentation event, thanks to the coaches and the organising committees for their efforts in this area. All students and parents are reminded that any “afters” which may be organised are NOT sanctioned by the school and that there is no supervision provided at these events by the College. In the past, we have had experiences where these have attracted an unwarranted element. Please support one another and say NO to either organising them or allowing your son to attend.

YEAR 12 MASS – TUESDAY, 14 AUGUST

All Year 12 parents are warmly invited to attend Mass with their sons in the College Chapel on Tuesday, 14 August from 9:35am. We hope you can also join us for morning tea in Gibney Hall after Mass. If you will be attending, please RSVP to Community Coordinator, Mrs Beverly Martinez on 9223 8106 or martinez.beverly@trinity.wa.edu.au.

FUN RUN FOR INDIA 2018 – FRIDAY, 17 AUGUST

The Fun Run for India takes place on Friday, 17 August. It is a whole Secondary School event. We need everyone to be actively involved in collecting money and participating fully in the day. Please give this event your full support. This is one of our major fundraising opportunities to support the projects in India which rely on our donations. Over the years, the funds raised have been used to build school and accommodation for students with severe disabilities at MITHRA, provide education for the children of tribal families in Gujarat, enable blankets and food to be given to homeless people in the railway stations in Kolkata, and countless other projects that the Indian Christian Brothers undertake to help the most destitute of people. Sponsorship Forms have been handed out in PCG this week. Students should take one home and collect sponsors for the Fun Run this weekend. If every student was to raise $30, then we would raise over $30,000, which will be taken to India with our Pilgrims. Thank you.

Mrs Marya Stewart | Director of Christian Service

YEAR 9 MASS – TUESDAY, 28 AUGUST

All Year 9 parents are warmly invited to attend Mass with their sons in the College Chapel on Tuesday, 29 August at 9:35am. We hope you can also join us for morning tea in Gibney Hall after Mass. RSVPs to Mrs Beverly Martinez on martinez.beverly@trinity.wa.edu.au or phone 9223 8106.

PREFECTS' CORNER

Wow what a start we have had to week 4 this term. Firstly, on Monday the Junior School Vocal Ensemble preformed at St Benedict’s Church, Ardross at 10am. All the boys did a fantastic performance. They should all be proud of themselves because they put in a lot of effort. Secondly, on Tuesday the College all gathered in the new Sports Centre and we celebrated NAIDOC (National Aborigines and Islanders Day Observance Committee) Week with an assembly which involved lots of performances. The theme of NAIDOC Week was “Because of Her, We Can”. One of the performances was the band called “Diversity” - they were fantastic. Thirdly, the Year 5s and 6s had their final winter sports training session and played their final winter sports game on Thursday versing Christ Church. All the boys played very well to finish off the season and should be proud of themselves. Also, the Year 4s had their Rugby Carnival to see if any boys wanted to play ruby next year. Lastly, on Friday morning we had a Junior School Mass. The 5 Green boys led the school in Mass beautifully. On Friday afternoon, we had our Catholic Performing Arts assembly. The Year 6 band played very well and they entertained the boys perfectly. It was a great way to end a busy week at school.

YEAR 10 & 11 TO ATTEND 'ONE LIFE ONE CHOICE' - SUBSTANCE ABUSE AWARENESS PRESENTATION - PARENTS WELCOME

Year 10 and 11 students will be attending a presentation by Sideffect Australia on Tuesday morning in the Sports Centre. The seminar is aimed at the students, however Year 10 and 11 parents are most welcome to attend. The seminar is aimed at educating our youth about the dangers of illicit and synthetic drug abuse. It has reached over 30,000 students across WA, with very positive feedback. It is a powerful presentation which educates our youth about the dangers of drugs and motivates conversations about drugs and drug use with parents. Sideffect Australia was founded by Rod Bridge, the father of Preston Bridge, a bright, 16 year old boy who tragically died after taking a synthetic substance. The organisation's goal is to widely educate, with personal stories and factual information, about synthetic drugs including methamphetamine and many others. The side effects of these drugs are shattering many families and communities around Australia hence we believe that education and early intervention is pivotal in stopping this cycle. 

  • Tuesday, 14 August
  • 9:35am to 10:30am 
  • Sports Centre, Trinity College

AFL STAR VISITS THE LIBRARY 

While visiting the College to speak to the Year 9s, former Eagles player Mitch Brown also paid an impromptu visit to the library. Some of our Year 8s were very excited to meet Mitch and have the opportunity to ask him lots of questions about his time as a professional football player. Mitch thoroughly enjoyed answering the boys questions and also talking to them about the book he is currently reading and the fact that many of the Eagles players will read books on flights as a way of switching off from the pressures and concerns of upcoming games or games just played.

TOBA JUNIOR SCHOOL ASSEMBLY & PRESIDENT'S AWARD

Congratulations to Year 6 student, Ryan Murphy ('24) for winning the TOBA President's Award for TC Spirit. Ryan’s teacher said: It has been said that “the final test of a gentleman is his respect for those who can be of no possible service to him”. This month’s TOBA Spirit Award winner truly epitomises this quote. He is a Man for Others in everything he does, putting all others before himself without expecting anything in return. He is a Man for Others in the classroom, offering assistance to his peers and teachers wherever possible. He is a Man for Others in the playground, actively seeking out opportunities to be inclusive and kind. He is a Man for Others on the sporting field, being humble in victory and gracious in defeat. Most importantly, this young man is a Man for Others in situations where it is often difficult to live out this mantra - in times where it would have been easier to consider the situation someone else’s problem. He simply knows the right thing to do and jumps in without thinking ‘what’s in it for me?’. This is the mark of a true gentleman, and a true TC man.

Courage to Care is a free, community outreach initiative that demonstrates to students the importance of standing up to bullying and prejudice wherever it occurs.

All high schools are invited to bring student groups who will have a guided tour of the exhibition, hear a Holocaust survivor's positive story and take part in a facilitated workshop. 

  • The exhibition is free of charge
  • 21 August to 5 September
  • Venue: The University of Notre Dame, Fremantle Campus
