From the Headmaster
On Tuesday, the College gathered together for our annual NAIDOC assembly - this is our opportunity to acknowledge and thank those students with ties to Aboriginal or Torres Strait Islander heritage for the contribution that they make to the College. At this year's assembly Ben McGuire (12.6) and Jack Cox (12.4) were our MC's and Ben McGuire also gave the Welcome to Country, while Malaki Rodoreda (11.2) read the Prayer. We were entertained by a variety of musicians and dancers. Mr Jake Cox ('16), addressed the boys on what his Trinity education had meant to him and the challenges he faced in his transition from school to University.
Mr Doug Powers, father of Jake Powers (7.4) is an artist and along with students in our Indigenous Program has produced a beautiful painting which spoke about the locations and languages of our Indigenous students, before presenting it to the College.
I thank Mr Gary Malarkey, Mrs Karrene McLernon, Mr Doug Powers and the Aboriginal students and parents who assisted in making this assembly possible.
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, Mr Anthony Olivieri as Deputy Chairperson, Mrs Cate Bertram as Treasurer, Mrs Beverly Martinez as Secretary and Mrs Michelle Rapkoch as Parent Ball Co-ordinator, with Parent Ball Assistants Mrs Nancy Siciliano, Mr Paul Spadoni & Mrs Caterina Carcich. Thanks to the new TC Fathers for Others Representative, David Wilkins. Also thanks to continuing members Nathan White, Andrea Dodo - Balu and Suzanne Lawrence and Mr Peter Norman for representing College Leadership.
The Council said farewell to Mr Gordon Taylor, Mrs Bronwyn Meldrum & Mr Steve Salvia 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: Mrs Caterina Carcich, Mrs Nancy Siciliano, Mr Ian Rundle and Mr David Wilkins.
The Parent Council provides a wonderful service to the College and I thank everyone involved.
Feast Of The Assumption Mass
On Tuesday, 15 August at 8.40am the whole school will gather together for the Feast of Assumption Mass in the College Sports Centre. I warmly invite all parents to join us for this Mass.
College Auxiliary Morning Tea - 18 August
I hope you have the 18 August in your diary. This is the date of their Annual Morning Tea (10.00am - 12noon) and is the highlight of the Perth Social Calendar. This year the Auxiliary have invited Mrs Christina Matthews to speak and she will speak about leadership, life, family goal setting and her role as the Chief Executive Officer of the WACA. Bookings for this event can be made via the following link: https://www.trybooking.com/QYSC
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 have been 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. Copies of these letters are attached to this Newsletter. The famous TC community spirit is always abundantly evident at this event, and your contribution is greatly valued.
Winter Sport Windups
With one final fixture against Scotch College this weekend it means that the Winter Season is drawing to a close. I am aware that all sports are organising a wind-up and trophy presentation event and I thank the coaches and the organising committees for their efforts in this area. I take this opportunity to remind all students and parents 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 and our students have been hurt. Please support one another and say NO to either organising them or allowing your son to attend.
Fun Run For India - Friday 18 August
A reminder that the Fun Run for India will be held on Friday 18 August. If every student was to raise $30.00, then we would raise over $30,000, which will be taken to India with our Pilgrims. Please give this event your full support.
Year 9 Mass
On Tuesday, 29 August at 9.35am, the Year 9 students will gather together for their Term 3 Mass. I warmly invite all parents to join us for Mass and to stay for a "cuppa" afterwards. RSVP's to Beverly Martinez on firstname.lastname@example.org or phone 92238106.
A reminder to all boys that you need to make sure that you have a thick and sturdy lock on your locker. Despite increased security the school has been targeted recently by thieves coming onto the property late at night and systematically going through lockers. They choose lockers that don't have a lock as well as those that have small, flimsy locks that can be easily broken. Please do not leave any valuables in your locker overnight. Any boys who have had items stolen should see their Head of Year.
A reminder to all parents that if it is necessary for your son to miss school for an extended time, this notification needs to be put in writing directed to me. I ask that such disruptions are kept to a minimum as Trinity College is a school where holidays are plentiful and the decision to remove a boy from classes can be detrimental to his learning.
I ask for your support in the delivery of the full education program offered by the College ensuring your son attends school for the entire term.
Independence For Boys
Michael Grose has written a great article on developing independence and self sufficiency in boys. To read please click here.
Change Of Leadership
As I made you aware late last term, I have been asked to fill in for the principal of St Mary's, Broome whilst he is on LSL. This begins on Monday and hence Mr Peter Norman will be the Acting Headmaster until the end of term. I feel confident that you will give him your full support and I look forward to returning to the College for Term 4.

Religious Education - The Miracle Of New Life In 6 White
Last Monday we received 10 eggs for hatching in our classroom, 6 White. They didn't do much for two days, they just sat in the warm and humid incubator. Then they began hatching! One, two, then five and finally nine fluffy baby chicks. This week we have learned how to look-after and care for them, this is called "Husbandry." We have also learned how the pick-up and handle the chicks so they feel loved and safe. It is amazing that each of the chicks has a different personality. Some are loud, some timid and some very sleepy. We have had our Year 4 White Buddies visit to see and learn how to hold the chicks. Today, other classes have also come in for some chick time. We taught them how to hold them so they feel safe. It is amazing that these cute and fluffy creations of God grew from just two cells. Mr Maxfield told us that it is five years good luck if you are pooped on! We have enough good luck to last us the rest of our lives! The chicks are being adopted by the families of boys in 6 White so we will get photos of them as they grow.

Catholic Performing Arts Festival
This week our Junior Vocal Ensemble represented Trinity at the Catholic Performing Arts Festival. The boys sang beautifully and as always to a very high standard, well done to all the boys. Next week BIG is performing on Friday evening. I am looking forward to seeing their energetic and entertaining performance. Next week also, is the Presentation Evening for the Angelico Visual Arts Exhibition. Congratulations to Lennox McGrath (6B), who will be an award recipient for his entry in this competition.
The winter sport season for this year is officially over. Thank you to Mr Luke Thompson for co-ordinating the season and to all the coaches involved for their time and effort in assisting the boys to develop their skills and team play. Thank you also to the parents and grandparents who support the boys each week.
Good luck to our Year 6 team who are representing Trinity for the Da Vinci Decathlon next Thursday. The Da Vinci Decathlon is a day-long competition in which the participants are challenged in 10 different disciplines including Mathematics, engineering, art and poetry, science, English and code-breaking.
Book Week runs from August 21 to August 25. As this coincides with an extremely busy week for the Junior School, we are celebrating with a "Dress-Up as a Book Character day" on Friday 18, August. The theme for Book Week this year is Escape to Everywhere. I encourage all boys to dress up in this theme or as a character from a book they enjoy. I would also encourage boys to bring the book to school that contains their character. The dress-up parade will commence at 10:50am.

Mr M Tucker ('87)| Head of Junior School
Wow what a week in the Trinity College Junior School! The week started off with the African Beat incursion. We learnt about the music and dance of African culture. Which turned out to be very interesting and fun.
On Tuesday the Junior Vocal Ensemble attended the Catholic Performing Arts Festival at St Benedict's Church in Applecross. We also had a few boys from Years 5 and 6 perform at Zenith Music for violin solos. Then on Thursday we had our Junior school sport fixtures against Scotch at Waterford. This was our last winter sports fixture for the year and for the Year 6s, their last winter sport fixture in the Junior School.
On Friday the Year 6's had their incursion called Becoming a Man, which was about how we will grow in to young men and what will change for us. We also had the 5 Blue assembly that we enjoyed a lot.

Edmund Rice Outreach Intercultural Soccer Match
This Monday August the 7th, a relatively unorganised and freshly developed Year 11 Trinity soccer team, consisting of only two experienced soccer players, travelled to Queens Park Primary school to challenge the local refugee team. The event was organized through the Edmund Rice Centre in Mirrabooka, which has developed a sports program to help young people from Culturally and Linguistically Diverse (CaLD) backgrounds to integrate with the wider community. The idea for a Trinity team to play a soccer game with this group was initiated by Prefects Nicholas Ellison (12.5) and Luke Scarfone (12.8) earlier in the year.
Year 12 students were unable to participate due to other commitments at this time, so a group of year 11 students volunteered to be involved. The boys travelled with confidence and poise, unknowing of the task ahead. Upon arrival, the warm-up was led by the captain of the day Zac Robinson (11.5), followed by an inspirational pre-game speech by Tylen Keizer (11.3), that provided the team with elation and confidence prior to the match. The local team soon arrived, interrupting the flow of our warm-up. Dressed in full kits with studs and shin-pads, whilst most of the Trinity team had their school sneakers, creating some doubt within the squad. Despite this, the team exhibited a superb effort in the first half to only be trailing by one goal. The local team displayed their skills in the second half and along with some unfortunate injuries to key players the result was that the final score was 5-3.
The teams competed with exemplary sportsmanship and the boys demonstrated wholeheartedly the TC spirit. Following the match, Trinity was invited to local Suleyman mosque where we shared a sausage sizzle with the winning side and the local police who were also present as part of the Common Ground program. This aims to create positive relationships and break down barriers between the police and local CaLD youth. After this we were welcomed into the mosque to learn a little about the Muslim faith and their connections with our Christian heritage. We thanked them sincerely for hosting such a fantastic event. Special acknowledgment to Mrs Stewart for arranging the match that all the boys were fortunate to participate in.

TOBA President Peter Torre ('89) with Nathan Tobin ('23)
Toba President's Award For TC Spirit
Congratulations to Yr 6 student, Nathan Tobin ('23) for winning the TOBA President's Award for TC Spirit. Nathan's teacher said: From the minute this young man began his journey at Trinity College, he has embodied the school maxim of being a 'Man for Others'. You will constantly find him putting others before himself without thinking twice, in fact, he is probably running through a mental list of who will be winning this award without even considering himself. He is a Man for Others in the classroom, offering guidance and assistance to his peers in a warm, gentle manner. He is a Man for Others in the playground, ensuring everyone feels included and accepted. He is a Man for Others on the sporting field, playing fairly and representing his school with pride. He is a Man for Others in the way he interacts with his teachers, displaying the utmost respect in every interaction and earning a high level of respect in return. Needless to say, if you are looking for an example of a true, genuine Trinity College Man you should look no further than this month's TOBA Award recipient, Nathan Tobin!
