A successful Year 11 Scene Setting meeting was held last Thursday evening for parents of Year 11 students. Parents were provided with advice on the best way for students to succeed in their GCSE examinations. A video with advice from other students was very well received by the audience. The video is now available to watch on the Trinity website by going to the following link:

Freshers’ Fair

All Year 7 students enjoyed visiting a range of stalls on display at the school’s annual Freshers’ Fair in the Sports Hall. Trinity offers a wide variety of extra-curricular activities for students, such as Chess, Christian Union, Film, 3D printing and gardening, in addition to a vast range of musical and sporting opportunities! Parents accompanied students as they looked at all of the stalls and opportunities on offer this year. We hope that the Year 7 students who signed up to many clubs enjoy their involvement throughout the year.

European Day Of Languages

Trinity will be celebrating European Day of Languages on Tuesday, 26th September, with the following delicious opportunities:

  • A special menu has been put together by our Catering Manager, Mr Clegg, that will be available in the Greer canteen, including French beef bourguignon, Spanish arroz con pollo and English apple pie and custard.
  • Our International Links Coordinator, Ms Walker, is also inviting students in Years 7, 10 and 12 to try a selection of French and Spanish food during Period 4a. It will be on a first come, first served basis, so make sure that you don’t miss out on the delicious tasters! Tasting will be in the area outside the Greer canteen and will include specialities such a chorizo sausage, olives, camembert and brioche.

Our Worshipping Community - Eucharist

Our first Eucharist of the school year was held in the main hall on Wednesday, 13th September. We were very pleased to welcome Reverend Mike Corcoran from Christ Church, Brunswick, who led the service and spoke expressively about how it feels to be totally immersed in “newness”, as so many of our students currently are.

Duke Of Edinburgh’s Gold Award

Our Duke of Edinburgh’s Gold Coordinator, Mr Davis, tells us about some of the expeditions our gold candidates have completed over the summer holidays:

“During the summer break, Trinity's first team of Duke of Edinburgh Gold candidates completed two four-day-long expeditions. The first was in Snowdonia, the second in the Lake District. During the expedition the team had to be entirely self supported in food and shelter, carrying stoves, tents and clothing to cope with the changeable mountain weather. They camped at a mixture of campsites and wild camps. The team demonstrated excellent skills in supporting each other and navigating across mountain countryside in tough conditions. All of the candidates passed the expedition part of the award and will be working towards completing the other components this year.”

Year 8 Scene Setting Meeting

Our next Scene Setting meeting will be for Year 8 parents, entitled “Building on the Foundations”, which will take place on Thursday, 28th September at 7.30pm in the main hall.

And Finally……

...we would like to welcome a newly appointed governor, The Reverend Canon Falak Sher, from St. Werburghs Church, Chorlton and the Church of the Ascension, Hulme.

The term of office for our Vice Chair of Governors, the Dean of Manchester Cathedral; The Very Reverend Rogers Govender, came to an end on 31st August, 2017, and he has now stepped down from the Trinity governing body. We would like to thank the Dean very much for his work as a governor and as Chair of the school’s Admissions Committee.
