Issue 17, 27 November 2020
This week we farewell our Year 10 students from their journey at Trinity. These young people have experienced a Year 10 like none of us could ever have scripted! They have had to forgo their annual camp to Falls Creek, interschool sports events and the traditional rights of passage such as our Year 9/10 Ball and Soiree evening. But these young people have navigated their way through the year with their heads held high!
Some weeks ago when I met with our Year 10's to discuss our plans for the final week of school I knew that it would need to look and be different to that which we usually celebrate. I knew that there would be disappointment when the reality of what we all thought with reference to the limitations for events was shared. I knew that these young ladies and gents had shared a tough year. What I didn't know was the level of grace, humility and understanding coming my way. Rather than be disappointed these incredible students were grateful for what we could manage to offer. These incredible young people were excited for the journey we could share, these young people were able to see beyond the situation and look to the future! These young people have the world at their feet, they are confident, they are resilient, they are independent and they are passionate!
These young people make our College proud, as parents they should make you feel proud but most of all they should feel proud of themselves!
Well done Class of 2020! Thank you for being the first cohort in history to experience remote learning! Thank you for bringing yourselves to our College and for having your part in shaping who we are. May God bless you in all that do. Remember our Lord is walking with you, always. Take Care and Reach for the Stars......You can be anything You want to be!

School start dates for 2021
As we prepare for the new school year the College has adapted our usual start of school routine. Our 2021 Prep and Year 7 students have not been able to fully participate in a transition program this year due to the Covid-19 regulations placed on schools. As such, the 2021 school year will have a staggered start.
The 2021 School start dates:
Thursday 28th January - PCG Parent/Student/Teacher interviews for all year levels
Friday 29th January - First day for Prep's and Year 7 ONLY
Monday 1st February - Whole school returns to school
We look forward to these staggered start dates providing a smooth start to the school year for all students.

Student Illness and Attendance
It is so exciting to know that not only our state but also Australia continues to record such low and on many days now, zero new cases of Covid-19 but with this great result can come complacency. A reminder to families when children are unwell - PLEASE DO NOT send your child to school if showing any symptoms of being unwell. Students will be sent home from school when ill. Thank you.
Basketball - Under 10 girls needed
Demons Basketball Club are needing more under 10 girls to make up a team for this upcoming season (girls born 2012/13).
