VOLUME 33, NUMBER 35
Almost perfect weather conditions as the whole school transferred, last Thursday, to the Sports City Stadium for our annual sports day. The photograph, above, shows the Year 9 boys’ hurdles gold, silver and bronze medallists. On the inside pages, pictures of the main athletics disciplines; 60m hurdles, 100m, 200m, 300m, 400m, 800, 1500m, discus, javelin, shot, long jump, high jump and relay events with, of course, the ever popular staff relay! Also, details of a selection of new records set in key events. A great day out for everyone and our Sports Presentation Evening to follow later this week.
Incidentally, Jamall Walters is already the Manchester and Greater Manchester 200m champion and will shortly represent the county in the English Schools Championship.
Well done to the following five students; Musab Awed, Axaviyo Harriott, Lucy Robinson, Fikayo Falade, Ailish Atkinson and Ali Ali, who gave a presentation to members of the Commission on Religious Education on their recent visit to Trinity. Other consultation meetings are being held at Westminster, Birmingham and Exeter in order to “address the key issues which the subject is facing” for consideration by the Department for Education. Also giving their perspectives were our Head of RE, Ms Buck, and Chaplain, Rev Steve Birkinshaw. We were subsequently informed that our venue was “great” and our students were “terrific”.
Two of our students, Noah Horlock and Omolola Ayodeji, represented Trinity at the Year 6 leavers service which is held annually at Manchester Cathedral for Church of England primary school children as they move on to high school. Our students, accompanied by Mr Haughton and Rev Birkinshaw, were great ambassadors for their school at this very high profile event.
A survey has recently been carried out of land use in the vicinity of the school, and images of the school were kindly forwarded to us. Putting the two photographs together shows the Temple, Greer and sports centre plus the astro-turf, 3G pitches, amphitheatre, canopy areas with views of the Manchester skyline in the background.
…...a great day out for the Hiltons! Chair of Governors, Peter Hilton, is shown outside Buckingham Palace with his wife Sue and sons Michael (left) and David (right) having received his well deserved M.B.E from the Queen. Both Michael and David are former Trinity students. The award was for “services to education and the wider community of Manchester”.
