Thursday 26th April 2018 : Week B
Last Thursday, Trinity’s main hall played host to our annual MFL and International Links Awards Evening. We were delighted to present a variety of MFL themed awards to our students who excelled in French, Spanish, and foreign film study. A special award was presented to Cara Kennedy in Year 10 who has demonstrated an admirable scholarly attitude to language learning. Congratulations to all who received an award and our thanks go to Head of MFL, Ms Jones, and the rest of the MFL team for organising such a memorable occasion. More details about other language initiatives within school can be found on the inside pages.

Shortly before the Easter holidays, students from 9AGO were invited to take part in the Ipsos MORI Young People Omnibus survey. The Young People Omnibus is a large scale survey of students aged 11-16 in Great Britain. A range of public and voluntary sector organisations use the survey as a way of finding out what young people think about a range of social and personal issues. Information obtained via the survey allows researchers to track key trends, contributing to policies and practices. This was a great opportunity for our students to have their opinions heard on a range of issues that will impact on their lives.
On Wednesday, Thursday and Friday last week, the school was proud to present three performances of Robert Louis Stevenson’s ‘Treasure Island’. The acting, costumes, staging, lighting and sound effects all came together spectacularly to create yet another outstanding school production. Our thanks go to the cast, seen in the above photo, as well as all the other students and staff who worked so hard behind the scenes. A special mention must be made to Mr Wells, Head of Drama, and to Ms Kirby, Teacher of Drama, for all their efforts and hard work in what was an excellent occasion in the life of the school.
From Head of P.E, Ms Barrett: “Last Friday our U16 boys’ basketball team took on Nottingham Academy in the quarter final of the English school Basketball competition. We played with passion and determination to beat them 50-48, despite struggling with injuries in the final quarter. Our boys have now booked their place in the semi final with another home draw against St Bonaventures from London. Well done boys, keep it up TEAM TRINITY!
