Tuesday 20th March 2018 : Week A
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! You are able to keep updated with all our daily sports news and results on our PE Twitter page, please follow us to keep updated with the latest action.” #letsgotrinity

The above photo was taken at our Lent Eucharist last week, led by Revd Dr Paul Mathole from Holy Trinity Church on Platt Lane, Rusholme.
In my assemblies this week I have also passed on my thanks to all students who braved the elements to attend school on Thursday and Friday last week. I have written a letter admiring the dedication of one Year 11 who left home especially early, at 6.15am, to ensure she arrived in school for a mock exam at 9.00am. Unfortunately, she didn’t arrive until 10.00am, but I thought the story was an example to us all of the grit, resilience and determination that’s required when we meet unusual situations.
As part of the Religious Education curriculum in Year 7, students are given the task of constructing their own churches. The above photo shows an impressive range of churches with students from 7PIA and Head of Year 7, Ms Ripley. The design, structure and detail of the churches shows the hard work and creativity from our Year 7s. Some students chose to make edible churches out of gingerbread or cake, which went down very well after being presented in the classroom! Well done to all students in Year 7 for making such a great effort with their churches.
Last Wednesday, the school’s Christian character and Anglican distinctiveness were clearly evident through the Eucharist and Church Schools’ Conference. For the first time, we welcomed Revd Daniel Valentine, from St Clement’s, Chorlton, who led our Candlemas Eucharist. Following this, we hosted our annual Church Schools’ Conference, with many headteachers and governors from local Church of England schools in attendance. The focus for this year’s conference was ‘understanding Christianity and beyond’, and the main speaker was Lisa Horobin, from the Blackburn Diocesan Board of Education.
