From the Head Master

December 3, 2021

In writing my article for the final weekly Bulletins for 2021, I find myself looking both forward and back.

I am very thankful that the rhythm of School life has been maintained without a confirmed case of COVID-19 at school through this term. After the extended time at home in the second half of the year, the prospect of more enforced time away caused me some concern. However, as events have transpired, our Year 12 students have been able to complete their final examinations, our Year 9 boys have been able to participate in the Field Studies Programme, and all of us have enjoyed some sense of normalcy in School life. The sounds of our musical ensembles have resonated on campus once again, our Mock Trial team has progressed to the Grand Final of the competition, and the training and trials for the summer sport season are well underway.

I am also very impressed by our students. At this time of year, when the boys’ learning is brought together and summarised for reporting and prizegiving, we get a clearer window into the progress that they have made. The Year 6 Exhibitions in the Preparatory and the Junior Schools demonstrated the sustained engagement of our boys in a disciplined form of inquiry learning in a topic that matters to them and to our world. Each morning on quad this week, boys in the Middle and Senior Schools were commended for their academic performance, engagement and growth this semester; the public nature of this acknowledgement honours achievements in the academic realm just as we do for the various co-curricular achievements of our boys. The seven Prizegiving Assemblies that will take place next week provide this year’s climactic opportunity to celebrate the boys’ achievements, although there is disappointment that parents will not be able to join us in person for these ceremonies. Despite the frustrations of the year, very many of the boys have made good progress in their learning.

I am eagerly looking forward to the farewell events for our graduating students next week. Both the Preparatory and the Junior Schools will conduct Valedictory assemblies for their Year 6 students as we mark the conclusion of their primary school years. On Saturday we will welcome our Year 12 students back as a cohort for the first time since mid-June as we conduct their Valedictory Assembly on an outdoor stage on Number 1 Oval. We are delighted that parents will be able to join us for that event, as well as the Year 12 Valedictory Dinner next Wednesday.

On a personal note, as I reflect on the year, I am struck once again by diversity of my experience; there is extraordinary variety in the matters with which I engage from day to day. The highs of seeing and hearing our boys at their best are offset by the disappointments that come with encountering our boys at their worst. The big picture of planning building and development of the School campuses in the years to come is partnered with the urgent need to ensure that every class has an excellent teacher. The continual pressure to have something meaningful to say and write brings with it a compelling need to keep reading, thinking and reflecting about how the School can best carry forward its mission. An aphorism oft-quoted among School leaders is that it is the best job in the world, with some really, really bad days. That rings true in my experience.

With everything that has transpired this year, I must confess to anticipating a sense of relief at the prospect of the summer break. There is still much to take place between now and the final day of classes next Wednesday, and the end of classes is by no means the end of work to be done for many of us, but the pace does change significantly over the summer. Of course, as we remember the fires of two summers ago, and the northern beaches outbreak of last year, we know that events may not pan out as hoped for, but hope does spring eternal!

For two years our world has navigated the way forward in the shadow of the pandemic. By God’s grace and through many good decisions by those in responsibility, our nation has avoided the worst of its impact, even though all of us have experienced some form of pain. As we look forward, buoyed by the protection offered by high vaccination rates, albeit shaken by the prospect of new variants of concern, I trust that you have hope for the future, both in 2023 and the years to come.

Our experience of life is inevitably mixed. The good with the bad. The sorrow with the joy. The toil with the rest. My prayer for our community this summer is that, even in the inevitable disappointments that come over summer and next year, we will hold onto hope. Most particularly, I pray that we will know the hope that comes to us through Jesus, who shows us that God is at work in our broken world.

The people walking in darkness have seen a great light; on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.

St John Unfolds the Great Mystery of the Incarnation

The Word Became Flesh

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.

There was a man sent from God whose name was John. He came as a witness to testify concerning that light, so that through him all might believe. He himself was not the light; he came only as a witness to the light.

The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world. He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognise him. He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him. Yet to all who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God— children born not of natural descent, nor of human decision or a husband’s will, but born of God.

The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

It will be with a deep sigh of relief that we bid farewell to the 2021 academic year next week. It has been another highly unpredictable twelve months, but, ever the optimist, I am really looking forward to a return to the more normal rhythms of Trinity Grammar School life in 2022.

For the second year in a row, we have had to cancel what, for me, is the highlight of the year; the Service of Nine Lessons and Carols. This service has come to mark, for me, the beginning of Christmas with a beautiful candlelit service of readings and music in the War Memorial Chapel. It is the event I most look forward to in the Trinity calendar; a time to reflect as the year winds down, to marvel again at the exquisite hymns, at once familiar and nostalgic, and to be reminded of the extraordinary beauty and power of the Christmas story as it unfolds through the nine lessons. It is a ceremony steeped in tradition, with the first service of Nine lessons and Carols being performed in 1880 in Truro Cathedral, and which has become synonymous with King’s College, Cambridge, who held their first service in 1918.

The inaugural Trinity Service of Nine Lessons and Carols was introduced in 1938 on the eve of the Second World War, during the first year of the Headmastership of V.S. Murphy. Because of that tradition, we have put together a virtual service in the hope that you watch it as a family. I do hope you enjoy it as much as I, no doubt, will. In my house, it is likely to form one half of a double bill with our other Christmas tradition, Love Actually.

Notwithstanding the challenges and disappointments of 2021, it is also important for us to count our blessings. It will be good to be able to farewell the Class of 2021 tomorrow and next Wednesday evening with their Valedictory events; it was good that with a combination of outstanding management and good fortune, we were able to run an uninterrupted IBD and HSC Examination programme; and it was fortunate that we did not have to go back into remote learning, and, unlike many other parts of the world, we ought be profoundly grateful that we have largely been spared the ravages of the global pandemic, so there is much to be thankful for.

Next Wednesday, the 8th of December, we will be holding the Prizegiving Assemblies for Year 7 to Year 11. All five events will be livestreamed, and you may follow the links to access your son’s ceremony.

Finally, may I extend my best wishes for a blessed, holy and peaceful Christmas, and refreshing holiday break.

Llandilo Development Opening – Save the date

I am pleased to provide advanced notice about the official opening of the Llandilo Development, including the new Basketball Court between Milverton and the Canteen which will be held on Friday 28th January at 9:30am. We are excited to officially open the newly created Year 5 and 6 Learning Centres and STEAM Lab, as well as showcasing the soon to be completed Basketball Court. An official invitation and opportunity to RSVP will be emailed to all families in mid-January, but for now I encourage you to save the date in your calendar so that you can join us for the opening and an opportunity to tour the new facilities.

Orientation Day

Today’s Orientation Day was a great occasion as we welcomed most of the 98 new boys from Pre-Kindergarten to Year 6 who will be joining us next year. There was a really positive buzz as, together with our existing boys, they began to develop the class-based relationships that will form the basis of much of the learning that will take place in 2021.

Unfortunately our new teachers were not able to join us today, but we eagerly look forward to meeting them in 2022 and benefiting from their wealth of expertise and varied experiences that will enhance our learning community.

Today also provided an additional transition experience for our Year 6 students as they spent the day at Summer Hill engaging in activities and discussions about Sport, Co-Curricular and Middle School culture.

Christmas Service

This week marked the date when we typically gather together as a community to share in the annual Christmas Service. This event is a significant one for the community as it presents an opportunity to reflect on the great news of Jesus’ birth. Whilst disappointing that we weren’t able to meet in person, I hope that you took the time to share in this experience through the pre-recorded service that Mr Smith shared with the community through Seesaw. My prayer is that you will take some time as a family to watch this and to reflect on the birth, life, death and resurrection of God’s Son and the hope of eternity we have through Him.

Sport, Co-Curricular and Specialist award assembly

On Wednesday we had the opportunity to gather all of the Year 3-6 students outdoors in front of the Llandilo building for our Sport, Co-Curricular and Specialist award ceremony assembly. It was a lovely occasion to stop and recognise the efforts, growth and achievements of the students across the year. It is important to note that these awards are not simply for the highest achievers at the Prep School. Instead, a great number of the awards reflect attitude towards learning and acknowledge significant growth that has been achieved. I hope that this event acted as an encouragement to all students to strive for high levels of engagement and effort in 2022.

If you are interested in watching a recording or viewing photos from this event, they can be found at the links below.

End of Year Dates

Whilst we are very much on the downhill run to the end of the year, there remain a number of important events that provide an opportunity to reflect on the year that has been and to celebrate the students’ growth and achievements. Please find updated details of these events below. All live streams can be accessed via this link.

  • Monday 6th December: Years 3-6 Prize Giving beginning at 1:00pm – this event will be for students only but will be live streamed for parents.
  • Tuesday 7th December: Year 6 Valedictory Service – one parent per student onsite and live streamed.
  • Wednesday 8th December: Final day for all Prep School students and Picnic Day for Years 3-6.
  • Thursday 9th December: Year 7 2022 Allwell Testing at Summer Hill – Year 6 students only will need to attend school on this day to take part in Allwell Testing. The results of these assessments are invaluable for the Middle School teachers and Housemasters as they support the students’ transition into Year 7 and beyond.

Sharing of food

I appreciate the end of year is a lovely time of sharing and celebrating. Whilst I typically enjoy and encourage this, I am requesting that parents resist sending any food into school to share or as gifts for other students due to the ongoing challenges with COVID. I appreciate this could be seen as overly precautious, but we don’t want to put ourselves in the position of arbiter over the appropriateness of one form of preparation or packaging as compared with another. I appreciate your support with this and hope that we might be back to normal in 2022.

Concerto Competition

A number of our students have competed in the Concerto Competition, which concluded this week. I am pleased to report that the Infants Section was won by Lewis Wang in Year 2 and Cayden Tsang in Year 3 came a very close second in the Junior Section. Congratulations to both boys!

As this is likely to be the final Prep News of the year, I want to wish the community a safe and refreshing holiday break. I pray that you and your families will have the opportunity to reflect on the good news of Jesus’ birth and all that it promises.

From the Head of the Junior School

Dear Parents and Friends of the Junior School,

Each boy has grown and developed throughout the year in so many facets of life. This year’s growth, particularly the development across Semester 2, is captured in your son’s Semester 2 Report which was made accessible on-line today. If there are any points of clarification, feel free to address these with the relevant teacher in the coming days. I encourage each student to spend time with their parent/s reflecting upon the messages that teachers have included in their report. A particular reflection and discussion point can be the Approaches to Learning ‘web’ and the student reflection comment on the first page. In particular, for students in Years 3-6, the correlation or discrepancy between teachers’ assessment and self-assessment in the five over-arching Approaches to Learning may generate discussion and be inspiration to set some goals for next year.

There are some significant events scheduled for the final days:

In addition, we will make available to all Kindergarten, Year 1 and Year 2 families the recording of our Christmas Service on Monday. The boys perform beautifully and look fantastic in the Christmas capes that they have made. We hope this service is an encouragement to you.

Year 5 boys are readying themselves for assuming the mantle of Junior School leadership and those who have nominated to be considered for School and House Officer roles will be eagerly awaiting Monday’s announcement of 2022 leaders at Prize-Giving. I spoke specifically to Year 5 this afternoon and all boys in Years 2-6 earlier this week at the announcement of prize winners about the ways we can choose to respond when receiving either welcome or unwelcome news. The reality is that all of us will have many experiences of both types of news ahead of us, no matter our age. Rudyard Kipling noted that one marker of making the transition from boy to man is “If you can meet with Triumph and Disaster and treat those two imposters just the same”. The announcements that accompany end-of-year events can become those ‘imposters’ for a young man, eliciting significant joy or disappointment depending on whether or not it is your name or another’s that is announced for the prize or position you had set your heart upon. Parents and teachers can do much to help boys understand that these experiences and associated emotions are a normal part of life and we can learn from both, and how to deal with both. Whilst enjoying a moment of success, we can learn to be considerate and thoughtful of others for whom it is a difficult moment. And we can learn also that in moments of personal disappointment, we can still be generous and sincere in congratulating others and acknowledging their achievement. Most of all…life goes on and usually assumes a rhythm which will soon distract us from the moment passed.

Tuesday’s House Swimming Carnival was enjoyed by the boys. Wonderful House spirit and encouragement of mates across the range of swimming abilities was evident despite segregating into cohort-carnivals. Congratulations to the Age Champions and Runners-Up who swam many races with significantly shorter breaks between strokes:

Under 8 Champion – Mason Shi; Runner-Up – Zayn Barakat

Under 9 Champion – Daniel Zhang; Runner-Up – Nicholas Ma

Under 10 Champion – Adam Zhao; Runner-Up – Darren Cai

Under 11 Champion – Nathan Jones; Runner-Up – Max Munday

Opens Champion – Jayden Bechara; Runner-Up – Andrew Zhang

Particular congratulations go to the boys and leaders of Young House who defended their title from 2020. I wonder how decisive that victory may be in what is shaping as the tightest race in many years for the overall House Cup. That wondering will be answered on Monday morning when one House is crowned as Overall Champions for 2021.

Parents in Year 4 are reminded of the link to the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) Overview with details about their son moving from using a school-provided device to purchasing their own Chromebook for Years 5-6. I remind you that your son will need his own device from the commencement of school in 2022. If you did not receive notification about this, please follow this link and contact Mr Karagiannis if you have any clarifying questions.

Safety protocols still prohibit us from distributing to students any food items brought by boys to school. This restriction also applies to the sharing of Christmas treats, candy canes etc. brought from home. This year, please do not send your son with food items to give others as treats or presents – we will need to send these home again, which is always disappointing for the boy.

I wish to flag to parents that the start and finish times currently in operation will become the regular hours for the Junior School in 2022. The only change to note from the regular 2021 times is the earlier finish of Years 3 and 4 at 3pm. In 2022, Junior School times will be:  

  • Kindergarten and Year 1 from 8:45am – 3:00pm
  • Years 2 – 4 from 8:30am – 3:00pm
  • Years 5 – 6 from 8:30am – 3:15pm       

It is the season! Congratulations to Miss Jabaji who gets married tomorrow. She will be at school next week for Year 6’s various celebrations and from 2022 will be known to parents and boys as Mrs Harrison.

As this is the last newsletter for 2021, I would like to take this opportunity to again thank students, staff and families for their hard work, co-operation and support throughout this most extra-ordinary year. Despite the remoteness of Terms 3 and 4, we have worked together to sustain each other and help each boy grow. I am especially grateful to parents for your trust in us, and for the regular expressions of support for staff across the year that have conveyed recognition, appreciation and lifted spirits often at just the right time.

In 2022, we anticipate starting with 297 boys in the Junior School across 13 classes and we look forward to welcoming our current students into their new classes along with 73 new students. Classes commence for all students in Kindergarten to Year 6 on Monday 31st January, 2022.

I wish all families a wonderful Christmas and all the blessings of the season. We look forward to swapping holiday stories (fingers-crossed!) on the first day back in 2022. God bless!

Mark Dunn | Head of the Junior School

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,

“Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace to those on whom his favour rests.”

News from the Field Studies Centre

December 3, 2021

This week marks the final four-week Field Studies Programme (FSP) at the Woollamia Campus. It has been a great experience for the boys in attendance, who for much of the second half of the year, looked like they would miss the opportunity. Our School has a long tradition of designing and delivering challenging and engaging outdoor education programmes. The Field Studies Centre itself has evolved as an example of innovative design and functional architecture. It seems that everyone who visits the campus for the first time, walks away impressed by both the buildings and the natural beauty of the setting. Ultimately though, it is the programme that is operated, the staff who facilitate it and the outcomes that each boy achieves that are the most extraordinary. 

The group of students who will arrive on the first day of school in 2022, will be with us for a full term of living, learning, stretching, growing, challenging, engaging, mastering, relationship building and immersion in the natural world. The Association for Experiential Education suggest that experiential learning occurs when carefully chosen experiences are supported by reflection, critical analysis and synthesis. These experiences are structured to require the learner to take initiative, make decisions and be accountable for results. The term-long programme with its focus on academic learning, outdoor learning and social-emotional learning is unique. The carefully curated areas of focus and associated learning activities are designed to help each young man embark on a journey of profound learning and self-discovery.

The current cohort of students have stepped into the challenges that the FSP has presented them in an impressive manner. Each boy has been stretched by elements of the experience and they have all had to draw upon their personal reserves of grit and resilience, as well as those of their peers. There have been many examples of boys going above and beyond to help others and contribute to the broader Field Studies community in a positive manner. Engaging in an intensive residential programme after such a significant time spent in lock down in term 3 and 4 undoubtably brought an additional level of challenge for this cohort. The FSP community values of being safe; being respectful; being productive; and displaying unconditional positive regard to others, provide a framework that the staff and the boys can use to navigate the bumps in the road as they arise. The penultimate day of the FSP saw the boys engaged in the team focussed Woollamia Olympics, the personal challenge of the final cross-country run, and then an afternoon of reflection as the students navigated a values journey exercise. The day was rounded out with a campfire cook out and debrief with their pastoral group leaders. As per our tradition, the last day of the FSP sees the boys reflecting in Chapel about their experience away and what they will take with them from the journey. They then go on to ring the camp bell that signifies the end of this chapter and the beginning of the next. The boys achieve great things during their four weeks on the Field Studies Programme and I am excited to consider how much future students will take from the extended experience going forward from Term 1 2022.

Duke of Ed awards on offer at Woollamia

December 3, 2021

Year 9 students get new opportunity in 2022

Students have been offered a bonus as part of their Programme to Trinity’s Field Studies Centre at Woollamia – the chance to complete the bulk of a Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) award on site.

The south coast sojourn presents an ideal chance to undertake the two “adventurous journeys” that are part of the Duke of Edinburgh award requirements, especially since Year 9 visits have been extended to a full term.

It also affords the opportunity to fulfil the scheme’s other requirements – to learn a skill, engage in physical recreation, and perform service to the community.

“It’s a beautiful, seamless melding of the two things, the awards and the campus,” said Matthew Hirst, Master in Charge of the DOE scheme.

“It’s where we can conflate the outdoor education experience with the more personal elements of the DOE awards.” 

Outdoor education staff at Woollamia will be trained as accredited award leaders. They will be available to support the boys attempting the qualification, helping them join the thousands of Trinity students to have taken part over more than 40 years.

“It would be great to see the majority of Trinity boys achieving a bronze award during Year 9 in the future,” said FSC Head Tim Knowles.

At any one time, some 200 Trinity boys are working towards an award – bronze for those 14 years old and over, silver for 15 plus, and gold for 16 plus.

From 2022, all bronze participants will be supervised by staff at Woollamia, and their award leader will be a staff member.

One leader based at Summer Hill will help boys to complete a hike around Sydney if they wish to fast track their bronze award. ​

​Individuals design their own programmes to suit their own interests and abilities.

“An award is achievable by anyone, with the right guidance and inspiration,” said Mr Hirst.

“Doing the award is a personal challenge, not a competition against others.

“It fosters personal and social development. Boys gain invaluable experience and life skills, grow in confidence and become more aware of their environment and community.

“The award is about setting goals and working towards them. It inspires individuals to exceed their expectations.

“It requires persistence and cannot be completed with a short burst of enthusiasm.”

The skill learned must not be a purely physical skill; it can include anything from refereeing to jewellery making.

The physical recreation could be through a team sport, or simply getting out there and working up a sweat, though it must include goals.

Community service could include environmental help, emergency services, animal welfare, charity work, youth work and sports leadership.

It is unpaid and the activities are done in the students’ own time. They require regular effort, typically an hour a week for six months.

Assessors help each candidate and write a report to verify their achievements.

Mr Hirst said the DOE scheme dovetailed neatly with Trinity’s goals of nurturing mind, body and spirit – “spirit in the broader sense of giving to those less fortunate, and serving mankind”.

He said it still had “currency” in Australia on a CV or at job interviews.

“It speaks of someone who is efficient, who is always striving to do their best, who has got to ‘know thyself’. It says something about your character.”

He described the scheme as “like ice cream on a hot summer’s day – it sells itself.”

His final comment for prospective candidates is: “They won’t regret it.”

Academic Excellence Citations and Engagement Citations – Semester Two

I am delighted to publish the names of students who have achieved academic and engagement awards for commitment to their studies during Semester Two. As I review the data for the semester, I am once again impressed by the strong relationship between a student’s deliberate engagement, as represented by the Engagement Point Average, or EPA, and his overall performance, as indicated by his GPA. To the students who have been awarded a citation for strong growth in their EPA, and also earned a citation for academic excellence or growth, well done! You are a reminder for all students seeking to improve their academic performance to begin by focussing upon feedback about their academic engagement behaviours.

Academic Excellence

The first category of Academic Excellence Citation is based upon a student’s Grade Point Average. Students in Years 7 to 10 and HSC candidates with a GPA of 13 or greater on the 15 point grade scale have achieved consistently outstanding academic performance. IB Diploma students with a GPA of 6.4 on the 7 point grade scale have achieved similarly robust results. 

The second category of Academic Excellence recognises students who improve their personal GPA, from one Semester to the next, by 2.0 or more points. This kind of academic growth is not possible without a renewed commitment to the engagement behaviours and the embracing of academic challenges.

Engagement Citation

Trinity has defined, and reports feedback on, the behaviours that characterise personal academic success:  self-management, task management, learning focus and persistence. These scores are collated as an Engagement Point Average. Students who score an EPA of 4.8 or greater on the 5-point scale, achieve an Engagement Citation.

Students who improve their EPA by 1.0 point or greater have demonstrated their ability to receive and act upon feedback and take responsibility for the actions that lead to academic success. These students are acknowledged for their courage to change their behaviours and the way they interact with learning challenges.

The Semester Two awardees are celebrated here. Each boy is congratulated upon a fine achievement.

News from The Arthur Holt Library

December 3, 2021

This week, the Library has given over its walls, windows and electronic displays to the excellent work of some of our Year 10 boys. We were so impressed by some of the work that was completed for their Independent Projects that we felt compelled to grant it a wider audience.

Some were presented as videos, animations, or PowerPoint presentations. One involved creating a website to showcase a series of photographs showcasing the impact of Sydney’s lockdown, while another involved the creation of a series of podcasts on the Spanish flu.

Topics such as mental health were tackled from a variety of angles – everything from social media campaigns and videos to essays considering the links between poor mental health and social media use. Most of the boys in Year 10 have had an opportunity to look at each other’s work and no doubt be inspired it.

We’d also like to remind all staff that they are welcome in the Library at any time. You might want to look at the student work on display or borrow some books for the summer. Of course, students and their families are also welcome to borrow via our click and collect service.

“All that humankind has done, thought, gained, or been; it is lying as in magic preservation in the pages of books.”

Prep Summer Reading Challenge

We can feel the excitement in the air about the 2021/22 Summer Reading Challenge. Below is a copy of the challenge card that all students have received. Hopefully this is helpful in the event of a lost card, or for you to create a second copy if someone else at home wants to join in. The research shows us that when good reading habits are modelled by those around children, they will copy what they see and form their own positive reading habits! Whilst us adults would mostly read for enjoyment; this is also another wonderful benefit to reading.

Please don’t forget to log the books read through the Google Form which can be accessed via the QR code. If you would like a quick rundown of the challenge, please check out the video.

Basketball News

December 3, 2021

It was great to see 27 teams hit the court against Waverley on Saturday. There were some positive results, but that wasn’t the focus of the day; it was giving plenty of boys the opportunity to show their wares. Outside the Firsts and seconds the Opens were very good with the Thirds to Sevenths coming out on top. Expectedly, the Year 10s struggled due to a big chunk of the Year group away at Field Studies.

Basketball Uniform

Heading into the five CAS games in 2022, all boys from 2022 Years 8 to 11 will be expected to have the new Basketball uniform; only 2022 Year 12s are exempt, as they only have five games to go in their Basketball career at Trinity.

1st V Squad vs Waverley College

“An inconsistent Trinity struggle and go down to an athletic Waverley team.”

Trinity had their moments on a wet and dreary night in the Eastern Suburbs but failed to execute at key times, to fall by eight points in the end (57-65). James A. (11La) led the way early with 7 points in the opening quarter, but the Greens fell behind heading into the first break (14-19). Offensively, the Firsts are still finding their feet and again this showed in the second and third quarters. Nelson M. (11Ke) did a good job getting to the basket in late shot clocks to finish with 5 points in the second. Trinity were up against as they went into halftime down by ten points (25-35).

In a low scoring third period Trinity went on a run with James A. (11WH) finishing off some fast break baskets to score seven of Trinity’s nine points, after some smothering defence from Miles B. (8WJ) and Ollie O. (9Ho). Trinity were only able to peg back a single point (35-44) from the halftime deficit heading into the all-important fourth quarter. Waverley quickly extended their lead out to 15 points, before Trinity made another run on the back of some quick scores by Anson Z. (11Ke), which include a big ‘3’ from downtown to cut the lead to 7 points. For the second straight week rebounding proved Trinity’s Achilles heel as the Greens were dominated on the boards.

The Firsts will head to Shore next Saturday and with the return of the Year 9s from Field Studies Camp albeit with limited preparation, the Coaching staff are looking forward to seeing how they will fit into the equation.

Leading Players

J. Andrews – 14 pts. 4 rebs.

J. Arthur – 11 pts.

A. Zhou – 8 pts.

N. McEnallay-Mino – 7 pts.

1sts Highlights

2nd V Squad vs Waverley

The Seconds offensive structures looked great at the start of their game, but unfortunately the final piece of execution of putting the ball in the basket proved the problem across four quarters going down to Waverley by 21 points (22-43). Adam T. (10Mu) was the most potent on the offensive end and did a great job on the boards finishing with 8 points and 12 rebounds. In a scrappy first half, both teams were locked at halftime (11-11).

After the break Trinity’s offensive woes began to effect their defensive focus and Waverley began to extend their Kyle T. (10WH) and Sam P. (10WJ) tried to regain the momentum, but poor decisions with the ball caused too many turnovers to turn the tide. The Seconds are looking forward to the return of a couple of players back from injury, which should bolster their depth for the upcoming trail games that will round out the 2021.

2nds Highlights

3rd V

It was great to finally have a hit out against another School and to be able to implement plays that the group have been working on in Trinity’s strong 12 point victory. Pavle C. (10St) was outstanding underneath the basket at both ends of the court with solid teamwork. Denis P. (10Yo) did a great job controlling the possession and pushing the ball down court. The whole team moved the ball extremely well in transition, with Ryan G. (10Mu) enjoying the early ball scoring a game high 20 points.

4th V

Trinity got off to a fast start with Marc B. (10Mu) teaming up with Sam N. (10St) who was able to secure the ball from everywhere and together scoring 10 points and 17 points respectively. Joel M. (10Ta) dictated the play in his point guard position and Daniel L. (11We) was dominant under the basket in defence as Trinity powered ahead to take the game by 8 points.

5th V

The Greens set a tone and established an early lead thanks to the solid efforts of Oliver A. (10We) and Adrian O. (10St). The momentum continued, with Peter M. (10Mu) coming off the bench and dominating inside with a few buckets and a plethora or rebounds to extend the lead by half time. As the second half wore on, Waverley started gaining momentum to make it a 1 point game late. Stellar shooting from Andrew Y. (10Hi) who managed to knock down three 3-pointers in the second half alone and helped Trinity stave off Waverley’s comeback efforts, as they held on to record a 7 point victory.

6th V

Trinity established themselves early as they gained a lead in the first quarter of the game, thanks to aggressive and calculated offence from Brandon L. (10Ho) and Ari T. (10Ke). Overall energy on the defensive end and rebounds from Patrick W. (11La) helped the Sixths stay ahead at half time. In the second half, Waverley picked up their efforts and came storming back to take a slim lead late in the game. A few great defensive possessions saw the game tied with 5.2 second left. Following a Trinity time out, Patrick W. (11La) received a great pass within range, to score the go-ahead and winning basket. A foul on the buzzer saw Waverley have two free throw attempts to tie the game, splitting the pair and giving Trinity a thrilling 1 point win.

7th V

First game since March this year, Trinity came out firing, taking a strong early lead and didn’t stop until the final whistle, winning comprehensively by 28 points. Trinity shared the points around with Caiden C. (11St) scoring 12 points, while Dominic F. (11WJ) and Sebastian S. (11Du) contributed 5 points each. Highlight of the match was the attendance of Jude R. (11St) who was injured but came to support and inspire his teammates which was well received. An outstanding effort!

8th V

In a tight contest Trinity lost by a single point, which was tough to swallow, particularly after controlling and leading for most of the game. Although Trinity were short in numbers the seven players who showed up battled bravely in a terrific effort. The entire group contributed wholeheartedly with Jackson G. (10Fo) top scoring with 8 points, Joshua B. (10We) hustling well and Arthur H. (10Hi) doing a great job to put himself in position to win the game in the dying moments but unfortunately just missed. 

Year 10A

Despite a double-digit loss, the 10As had a competitive battle against a skilful Waverley side. Trinity got out to an early 9 point lead due to the dominating performance of Trinity’s backcourt Ollie O. (Ho) and Brendan G. (Mu),who both used their defensive instincts and scoring ability to give the Green’s a sudden lead. As Waverley edged their way back and in front on the scoreboard, Jed M. (WJ) scored 12 straight points to keep Trinity on Waverley’s heels. Christian H. (He) used his athleticism excellently to generate key stops towards the end of the game however, there was too little time left for Trinity to take back the lead going down by 7 points.

Year 10B

Trinity put up a strong effort, however, they fell short to a talented Waverley side losing by 8 points. It was a competitive game from the tip off, where Ryan M. (Sc) provided crucial baskets early on to keep the Greens in the game. Matthew N. (Mu) provided a much-needed spark on both sides of the court towards to end of the first half. James C. (La) extended this momentum to the second half by playing superb defence, allowing Trinity to cut Waverley’s lead to just 5 points. However, Waverly proved just too strong on this occasion, taking the match.

Year 10C

It was a sobering loss to Waverley, giving Trinity much to consider at training. Nevertheless, the team still played well, and was within 10 points of their opponents towards the end of the first half. Caleb B. (St) drove hard to the basket several times to keep the flame alive, and Christian P. (La) maintained solid control of the ball even under significant pressure from taller defenders. Lawrence H. (Yo) kept calm and maintained solid defence at all times. Hopefully our rematch next term when CAS points are on the line will be a closer game!

Year 10D

In a tough loss for Trinity, which wasn’t a shock with so many key players away on Camp, Alfred H. (St) maintained high energy all game, running hard throughout. Oliver H. (Ke) maintained strong control of the ball at all times. Tim S. (Yo) drove competently to the basket several times, maintaining strong pressure on offence.

Year 10E

In their first game of the season, due to injuries and absences, the 10Es were undermanned. With that said, it rarely felt as if Trinity had a depleted team, due to the effort, grit and courage showed by the boys. For most of the game, George G. (We) was guarding in the full court, getting steals and being generally disruptive to Waverley’s offensive flow. Marcus T. (Sc) and Lachlan D. (Du) were physically dominant in the paint all game, forcing their way into the paint and providing us much needed baskets as fatigue kicked in. While Waverley pulled away in the last couple minutes, the game was otherwise close and very competitive due to the outstanding effort of the boys.

Year 10F

The 10Fs had a positive first game with their mix of quick and athletic guards and very capable bigs posed an insurmountable challenge for Waverley. Max M. (Fo), Luca R. (Mu) and Freddie R. (Mu) did a particularly good job of getting steals and pressuring Waverley in the full court. While the group took a little while to get the cobwebs out and understand how to play together, they were able to bring it all together when it counted. The game was somewhat close until the last couple of minutes before Jon M. (Ke) converted an impressive and-1 to seal the win.

Year 10G

Despite this being their first external game this season, the 10Gs played like a well-oiled machine, moving the basketball and exploiting every opportunity that presented itself. In the first half, nobody on the court was able to stop William T. (Ho) from getting to the basket, with William utilising a variety of skills to drive inside. At halftime Waverley made some adjustments and went on a run. Trinity refocused on our key points to the game and subsequently made a fantastic effort to limit Waverley’s second chance opportunities by improving our rebounding significantly. Particular credit to Marcus D. (Ke) on this improvement. Perhaps the standout performance of the game was Angelo S. (Sc) who hit a triple of ‘3s’ within the space of about ten minutes. This stellar shooting display allowed the Greens to pull away and win the game comfortably.

Year 9A 

It was an impressive performance to start the season, comfortably getting past Waverley by 16 points. Harrison L. (Ar) got the team off to a flying start scoring Trinity’s first 8 points of the game and ending with 18 for the match, which included two big 3s. New additions to the team Noah M. (Yo) and Callum P. (Hi) proved they belong. Noah showed excellent control while scoring 7 points, while Callum made some unbelievable passes and played smart defense throughout. 

Year 9B 

Despite a 3 point loss to a talented Waverley side with a lot of height, Trinity can be proud of their efforts for their first trial game of the season. Taj W. (Ta) displayed a high level of intensity throughout the game at both ends and finished with a game high 10 points. Vasili A. (He) created several scoring opportunities by playing with relentless aggression with the ball in his hands while John M. (Ta) exhibited great leadership qualities with consistent communication ensuring the team played the right way. 

Year 9C

The boys in Green had a solid outing in their first game going down by just 5 points. Stand-out performances from Adam T. (Ta) and Joshua F. (Sc) saw Trinity make a late run in the final five minutes only to fall short.

Year 9D

An overall excellent display from the 9Ds playing great defence the entire game and turning that into points every chance they could. Marcus K. (Ar) and Nass A. (Ho) showed great poise throughout the game as Trinity dominated to win by a large margin.

Year 9E

It was a hard-fought game that ended in a draw that easily could have been a win. Trinity started a bit slow, being tentative with the ball, and struggling to contain Waverley’s centre who was bigger than anyone on the Greens. Sam G. (Ke) was huge early, providing the initial scoring boost. Throughout the game Matthew B. (St) figured out how best to contain their big, with the help of his teammates. Jared K. (La) was unstoppable on his drives. Lincoln F. (Fo) overcame a shaky start to be a key defender in the final minutes. Finally, Benjamin K. (Ta) showed incredible poise, knocking down a short corner jumper in the final minute to put Trinity up by a point. He also was able to draw a shooting foul and sink a free-throw to seal a tie after an unfortunate turnover gave Waverley the lead. 

Year 9F

In a great team win, which Trinity dominated from the tip, Luke N. (St), Isaac I. (Yo) and Jake M. (Ke) were the driving force. With the trio leading the Greens to a 12-0 lead in the first five minutes. Despite being up by a significant margin the boys continued to put in on the defensive end throughout the entirety of the game. Special mention must go to Lucas M. (Ke) for being disruptive to anything Waverley were trying to do.

Year 9G

It was excellent to see the team enthusiastic in their first game back against Waverley, scoring a victory by 22 points. The boys were victorious with Cohen K. (We) scoring multiple 3-pointers. Akash S. (Ar) played an integral role in the team after recently moving up. Jason T. (WJ) and Maxwell P. (Mu) moved well in defence to help secure the win.

Year 9H

The boys played a challenging game against a competitive team, which included a number of boys doubling up from the 9Gs for the trial. The end score showed the determination the boys had to succeed, losing by only 7 points. Christian C. (WJ) was a standout, often anticipating movements of the ball and opponents to create turnovers. Hadi S. (Mu), Gerald O. (Yo) and Declan T. (Mu) developed some great defensive tactics which will serve Trinity well in future matches.

Year 8A

In what was a thrilling game, Trinity were narrowly edged by 3 points. Despite the loss, the Greens teamwork offensively to move and share the ball resulted in all players contributing to the Greens 40 point tally. Malakai S. (We) and Cody R. (Ke) both had glimpses of dominance offensively as they each finished with double digit points, and this enabled Trinity to dictate the game for the most part. Bailey H. (He) displayed great poise offensively, while defensively his tenacious effort was unmatched.

Year 8B

In a game that went down to the wire, Trinity were able to prevail with a 1 point victory. Christian G. (WH) had an all-round superb game, as he used his height to influence shots on defence, while also managing to lead the 8B in scoring. This included what would be the game winning basket with less than three seconds remaining. David S. (Ta) and Matthew C. (Hi) both had a notably impressive game in defence, as they showed great positional awareness and secured a vast number of rebounds.

8C 

The Year 8Cs showed plenty of potential in an unfortunate 11 point loss. The scores were neck and neck through the first half, but some defensive lapses in the second allowed Waverley to pull away. Great cuts and driving layups from Zac T. (Ke), Ruben L. (WJ) and Dean C. (Mu) kept the boys’ hopes of a comeback alive, though there was not enough time to put together the run they needed. The team is looking forward to a rematch when the season commences next year. 

8D

A spirited second-half performance saw the Trinity storm back from a 9 point deficit only to ultimately fall short by 1 point. Austin W. (We) sparked the team’s resurgence, providing plenty of energy off the bench and grabbing several key rebounds. Equally instrumental in the comeback was Matthew N. (Sc) whose dominance in the paint earned him a game high 10 points. Aiman M. (We) also showed promise as a strong and savvy ball-handler.

I was so impressed by the standard of your students and the diligence and concentration of their presentation and performance. It was very hard to choose winners as each candidate performed so well and all deserve congratulations, especially in this difficult time of learning.

In our new INFANTS Section, she chose Lewis W. (Prep), who played the Seitz Violin Concerto, in 1st Place.

Whilst in the JUNIOR Section she chose Clancy L. (Junior School), who played Wieniawski Concerto No.2 3rd Movement, with a request for a special mention of Cayden T. (Prep) coming a very close 2nd, playing Vivaldi’s Spring, rewarding him with a Highly Commended.

In the INTERMEDIATE Section she awarded 1st Place to Andy L., playing the Lalo Cello Concerto, with and a highly commended to Luca F., playing Kabalevsky.

And in the SENIOR Section Joseph L. was the winner, playing Wieniawski Concerto No.2 1st Movement.

Duke of Ed awards on offer at Woollamia

December 3, 2021

Year 9 students get new opportunity in 2022

Students have been offered a bonus as part of their Programme to Trinity’s Field Studies Centre at Woollamia – the chance to complete the bulk of a Duke of Edinburgh (DOE) award on site.

The south coast sojourn presents an ideal chance to undertake the two “adventurous journeys” that are part of the Duke of Edinburgh award requirements, especially since Year 9 visits have been extended to a full term.

It also affords the opportunity to fulfil the scheme’s other requirements – to learn a skill, engage in physical recreation, and perform service to the community.

“It’s a beautiful, seamless melding of the two things, the awards and the campus,” said Matthew Hirst, Master in Charge of the DOE scheme.

“It’s where we can conflate the outdoor education experience with the more personal elements of the DOE awards.” 

Outdoor education staff at Woollamia will be trained as accredited award leaders. They will be available to support the boys attempting the qualification, helping them join the thousands of Trinity students to have taken part over more than 40 years.

“It would be great to see the majority of Trinity boys achieving a bronze award during Year 9 in the future,” said FSC Head Tim Knowles.

At any one time, some 200 Trinity boys are working towards an award – bronze for those 14 years old and over, silver for 15 plus, and gold for 16 plus.

From 2022, all bronze participants will be supervised by staff at Woollamia, and their award leader will be a staff member.

One leader based at Summer Hill will help boys to complete a hike around Sydney if they wish to fast track their bronze award. ​

​Individuals design their own programmes to suit their own interests and abilities.

“An award is achievable by anyone, with the right guidance and inspiration,” said Mr Hirst.

“Doing the award is a personal challenge, not a competition against others.

“It fosters personal and social development. Boys gain invaluable experience and life skills, grow in confidence and become more aware of their environment and community.

“The award is about setting goals and working towards them. It inspires individuals to exceed their expectations.

“It requires persistence and cannot be completed with a short burst of enthusiasm.”

The skill learned must not be a purely physical skill; it can include anything from refereeing to jewellery making.

The physical recreation could be through a team sport, or simply getting out there and working up a sweat, though it must include goals.

Community service could include environmental help, emergency services, animal welfare, charity work, youth work and sports leadership.

It is unpaid and the activities are done in the students’ own time. They require regular effort, typically an hour a week for six months.

Assessors help each candidate and write a report to verify their achievements.

Mr Hirst said the DOE scheme dovetailed neatly with Trinity’s goals of nurturing mind, body and spirit – “spirit in the broader sense of giving to those less fortunate, and serving mankind”.

He said it still had “currency” in Australia on a CV or at job interviews.

“It speaks of someone who is efficient, who is always striving to do their best, who has got to ‘know thyself’. It says something about your character.”

He described the scheme as “like ice cream on a hot summer’s day – it sells itself.”

His final comment for prospective candidates is: “They won’t regret it.”

We would like to thank her for her assistance and support of our young musicians and wish her all the best as she pursues other teaching opportunities. We are presently interviewing for a replacement teacher in this program. Vacancies exist in the Private Tuition Instrumental Music Program for piano, percussion, violin, viola, cello, flute, clarinet, saxophone, trumpet, trombone, French horn and baritone lessons. New students to the Private Tuition Program please complete an enrolment form and email to Mrs Campbell GCampbell@trinity.nsw.edu.au asap.

AMEB Theory of Music Exam Dates

After much negotiation the Grade 4 boys will be sitting their exam on Sunday 12th December at 9:30am, and Grade 3 on Sunday 19th December. Thanks so much to Mrs Trynes for continuing to support the boys in this long process. We wish them every success.

Suzuki Music String Tuition

Parents and students of new and existing violin and cello students of the Suzuki Method are invited to view the following presentation from Ms Chan and Ms Vieira. The Suzuki Method is a holistic method of instrumental teaching that is based on the philosophy that every child has the potential to develop musical ability given the right environment, just as every child learns to speak their mother tongue in the supportive environment of their family. Emphasis is placed on training the musical ear from the beginning which is especially important for learning a string instrument. Suzuki music lessons are especially effective when children start early, and boys are able to enrol in lessons from Pre-Kindergarten. Students will receive one private lesson per week during school hours plus the opportunity to participate in Suzuki Group Classes held before school. If you wish to  enrol your son into this program for 2022 please contact Ms Lorraine Chan lchan@trinity.nsw.edu.au.

Mozart and Beethoven Strings 2022

To assist staff in placing boys in the correct position in the ensembles going forward, to enable invaluable performance experience and to ensure boys have a performance goal and focus over the break, members of Mozart and Beethoven Strings are asked to prepare one piece of music for each other at the first rehearsal in Week 2 in 2022. If you have any further questions please contact Mrs McCluney amccluney@trinity.nsw.edu.au for Beethoven Strings and Ms Chan lchan@trinity.nsw.edu.au for Mozart Strings.

Rehearsal Schedule for 2022

Please view the Music Co-curricular Rehearsal Schedule below. Trinity Singers, Primary Choir, Junior Choir and Concert Band rehearsals will be confirmed at the start of 2022 once we receive updated COVID advice from the School. I would like to express my thanks to Ms Nicole Smeulders for her work with all the choirs this year and to wish her all the very best during her time of leave to work with Opera Australia in 2022.  We look forward to her return in Semester 2 and in Semester 1 will welcome Ms Isabelle Keyser who will work with the choirs and assist with Classroom Music lessons.  All Ensembles will commence rehearsals in Week 2.

We were very fortunate to have Fiona Ziegler, Assistant Concertmaster of the SSO as our adjudicator this year. Fiona gave very encouraging and helpful feedback stating:

I was so impressed by the standard of your students & the diligence and concentration of their presentation and performance. It was very hard to choose winners as each candidate performed so well and all deserve congratulations, especially in this difficult time of learning.

With an echo of Ms Zielgler, congratulations are in order for all musicians in the Junior School, especially in this difficult time of learning due to the pandemic. We extend our congratulation to the parents of the students. Without the abundance of care, guidance, patience, and encouragement, it would not be possible. All staff and tutors are impressed with the achievements of all music students.
