Saturday 21st July 2018 : School is closed for Summer Term Holiday until Monday 3rd September 2018
What a week! Our Year 7 participated in a range of arts activities, both in school and at the Z-Arts centre, culminating in two showcases on Friday. Year 8s had a day at the beach, a climbing centre and spent 3 days/2 nights in the Peak District, challenged by a range of activities including cycling and water sports. ‘Enterprise’ was the theme for our Year 9s who had the chance to build their own business and sell their creations at a ‘marketplace’ in the school playground on Friday. Our Year 10s had their eyes opened to the world of work on various successful work placements. Year 12 students learnt about the UCAS process and had the opportunity to visit Lancaster and Keele universities. My thanks go to all those leading these incredible range of activities.

As part of the ‘Speakers for Schools’ initiative, last week we were delighted to welcome Mohammed Amin, MBE, to Trinity. Mohammed spoke to students during an assembly about living a successful life within a religious context. Following this, Mohammed was interviewed by Head of R.E, Dr Buck, and our R.E AS Level students. After the session, one Year 12 student, Ore Yakubu, said: “I grew to understand the importance of individuality in religion because everybody has different ideas and perspectives. The focus should be on your personal relationship with your god or gods rather than following rules you don’t necessarily believe or agree with.”
Last Wednesday, it was the turn of our Year 11s and Year 13s to celebrate in style at their proms. The Year 11 prom took place at the Britannia Hotel in Northenden and our first Year 13 prom was held at The Living Room in Manchester city centre. It was great to see all of our students dress up for the occasion and celebrate with both students and staff.
Last Thursday, our Sports Centre played host to the annual Sports Awards Evening. To present the awards to students, we were delighted to welcome Nicolette Fong Lyew Quee, a former Trinity student (seen in the top right photo) who is a Team England basketball player and recently represented England at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
The evening was a great success in terms of recognising the hard work, dedication and talent of many students for their sporting achievements throughout the year. Our thanks also go to the P.E team for allowing students to thrive in the department. Well done to everyone who received an award.
