VOLUME 33, NUMBER 25
The ‘Wizard of Oz’ musical certainly lived up to our high expectations with marvellous performances on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday to almost capacity audiences. The boys and girls involved were professional and polished and the music, scenery and costume were absolutely first class. Well done to everyone involved - staff and students - and a very high profile initiative that once again shows the school’s commitment to the performing arts. Thanks, also, to parents and other family members for supporting the boys and girls with their enthusiasm, optimism and, of course, their attendance at the four performances. More photographs showing scenes from the musical can be seen on the next page.
A full range of photographs are available on the “Gallery”, accessible via the school website link.
Parents of Year 6 boys and girls will now have been informed by their respective local authority of their allocated high school for September, 2017. Parents can, of course, appeal against this decision and I am already aware of a significant number of appeals to secure places at Trinity which will be heard around May-June time.
“Just a note to say thank you for arranging our visit today. Please pass on our thanks to staff and students for the warm welcome Robert and I received. A special thank you to the staff who helped distribute the Testaments at the end. Please relay to the students our appreciation of their excellent behaviour and participation in the talk. Some excellent responses to the questions.
As always, it was a joy to be at Trinity and the school should be proud of all the achievements. Looking forward to visiting again in the future. If we can be of any help in other areas as discussed please let me know.”
Not winners, this time, but a credible and commendable 2nd place was given to our Year 10 team. This outward bounds weekend continues to be character building and also great fun.
On Tuesday and Wednesday evenings we invited next years Year 7 children and their parents to join us for one of two evenings aimed at welcoming everyone to their new high school with presentations to cover the following aspects of life at Trinity;
Head of Modern Languages, Ms Cecile Jones, writes;
“The aim was for some students from MMU and a sample of Year 8, Year 11 and Year 12 students, studying French, to experience a different angle of French-speaking culture through the study and review writing of short films. As the students involved were the only ones in the UK, the organisation in charge of MyFrenchFilmFestival, Unifrance, sent MMU and Trinity prizes to be given to the best reviews, three of which will be published on their website.”
…...next Friday, 31st March, is the last day of term prior to the Easter holiday. It will be a normal working day with the usual finishing time, but the whole school will assemble in the sports hall for an Easter Act of Worship from 2.30pm - 3.00pm. This will be followed by de-registration and departure.
