For the third time in the last eight years, Trinity Year 10 won this coveted “outward bounds” competition, open to all twenty six Manchester high schools and academies.
Last week, they received the trophy from the Lord Mayor of Manchester, Cllr Naeem ul Hassan, and the Manager of the Ghyll Head Outdoor Education Centre, Mr Graham Jones.
Well done to the Trinity team of Maddie Coogan, Esther Pitt-Scott, Mercy Olawuni, Elizabeth Donohue, Elizabeth Marks, Harry Wallbank, Tom Godfry, Joe Baker, Jonathon Steadman and Aaron Omotosho, who did so well, and during a highly demanding weekend, were excellent ambassadors for Trinity.
Last week, we were delighted to welcome to Trinity the new Bishop of Manchester, The Rt Revd David Walker.
The Bishop packed a great deal into his half day visit, including a tour of part of the school, conversations with students and staff, a 40 minute meeting with the Student Council and a buffet lunch with the Chair of Governors and members of the school leadership team.
The Bishop also used the visit to promote the ‘Real Easter Egg’, and to give a number of the eggs to members of the Student Council.
Congratulations to the cast of ‘Tales from the Arabian Nights’ who, last Thursday and Friday evenings, put on two sensational performances in front of sizable and appreciative audiences.
The acting, costume and setting were first class and thank you to everyone involved, particularly Mr Wells, Head of Drama, for the way he coaxed, cajoled and conjured everyone to be at their best.
The boys and girls involved in the production were from years 7-10 and, bearing in mind their age range was 11-15 years, the maturity, stage presence and confidence of the performers was truly amazing.
Last weeks World Book Day quiz held in the learning resource base and organised by Head of House, Ms Maxwell, saw Jordan Black and James Noller emerge victorious for the third successive year. Well done and thank you to all students who took part.
On the same day, more staff than ever participated in the World Book Day costume competition. The winning department for innovative costumes was the mathematics team who portrayed characters from two of the novels by Charles Dickens; ’Oliver Twist’ and ’A Christmas Carol’.
