Wednesday 18th July 2018 : Week B
As part of the ‘Speakers for Schools’ initiative, last week we were delighted to welcome Mohammed Amin, MBE, to Trinity. Mohammed spoke to students during an assembly about living a successful life within a religious context. Following this, Mohammed was interviewed by Head of R.E, Dr Buck, and our R.E AS Level students. After the session, one Year 12 student, Ore Yakubu, said: “I grew to understand the importance of individuality in religion because everybody has different ideas and perspectives. The focus should be on your personal relationship with your god or gods rather than following rules you don’t necessarily believe or agree with.”

Last Wednesday, it was the turn of our Year 11s and Year 13s to celebrate in style at their proms. The Year 11 prom took place at the Britannia Hotel in Northenden and our first Year 13 prom was held at The Living Room in Manchester city centre. It was great to see all of our students dress up for the occasion and celebrate with both students and staff.
Last Thursday, our Sports Centre played host to the annual Sports Awards Evening. To present the awards to students, we were delighted to welcome Nicolette Fong Lyew Quee, a former Trinity student (seen in the top right photo) who is a Team England basketball player and recently represented England at the Commonwealth Games in Australia.
The evening was a great success in terms of recognising the hard work, dedication and talent of many students for their sporting achievements throughout the year. Our thanks also go to the P.E team for allowing students to thrive in the department. Well done to everyone who received an award.
Earlier this month, 7NBA had their first bake off with a selection of baked goodies to indulge on including a remarkable NBA Skittles cake baked by Ella Jones. The judges, Miss Bansal and Miss James, particularly enjoyed the event and decided that all 8 bakers who participated would be given the privilege of baking again but for the whole school. Their delicacies were on offer to buy at a charity bake sale that was hosted by 7NBA at break time on Wednesday, 20th June. The bake sale forms part of the Archbishop of York award scheme the form are currently involved with and all proceeds of the sale will be donated to the Young Minds charity.
