Science is certainly a strength of the Trinity curriculum, and students of this very important “core” subject have recently been involved in a sustainable village project and a science fair, as the above photographs show. Developing a science based career also involves a study of one or more of the GCE advanced level science subjects; biology, chemistry and physics. These subjects will be strongly represented in our Sixth Form as our first Year 12 students embark on their advanced level courses in September, 2016. Earlier this week, Head of Sixth Form, Ms Tattum met with all our prospective Sixth Formers to make them aware of the forthcoming post 16 opportunities at Trinity.
On the final day of term prior to the Easter holiday, the whole school Easter service was led by the Chaplain, Rev Steve Birkinshaw, in the sports hall. Readings were taken from John Chapter 20 v 1-29, the choir sang ‘In Christ Alone’ and ‘The Creed’ with the congregation hymns being ‘The Servant King’ and ‘Thine Be The Glory’. A most appropriate and fitting way to the end of term and, as always, an extremely busy and hectic time of year. Whole school acts of worships, monthly Eucharist services and daily acts of worship for year groups and houses are ways in which we maintain what is referred to as our “Christian character and Anglican distinctiveness”.
Two important events, the Trinity ‘Countdown’ and the inter-school ‘Spelling Bee’ have recently been held. Well done to the forty nine ‘Countdown’ competitors, especially Sam Johnson, 1st, Erick Adiaheno, 2nd, and Remon Salami, 3rd. Eight schools took part in the ‘Spelling Bee’, with Kshitij Chawhan and Sarthak Jadhav representing Trinity. The high level of competition was evident from some of the words the boys and girls were asked to spell; ‘blancmange’, ‘extraterrestrial’ and ‘disobedience’. The top two pictures are of the ‘Countdown’ competition with the three winners shown top left. The bottom right photograph shows ‘Spelling Bee’ students from various schools awaiting their turn to take part.
