House Cross Country

On Friday 7 May the kids from years 3 to 6 participated in a house cross country at Egan Lee Reserve. Everyone did really well considering that it was a warm day. In PE lessons everyone had been preparing for weeks and many students were was really nervous.

The year 3’s and 4’s had to run 2km which was 2 laps around the track and the year 5’s and 6’s had to run 3km which was 3 laps around the track.

Some of the results were:

From year 3 Luke W got 1st for the boys and June got 1st for the girls.

From year 4 Darcy won it for the boys and Eden won it for the girls.

From year 5 Nathan won it for the boys and Ella D won it for the girls.

From year 6 Luke A won it for the boys and Sunny won it for the girls.

Sixty students will represent our school at the district country on 28th May.

Thank you to Mr D for organising the day very well and to all our wonderful parent helpers that assisted with running the event.

Here are some photos taken by our wonderful parent and teacher helpers from our recent cross country event……

District Athletics

District Athletics

On Tuesday 27th April, a group of students from years 3 to 6 were chosen to represent Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s at the district athletics carnival. Our school competed against different schools in the Scoresby District at the Knox Athletics track.. Students were chosen to represent HT & St. Mary’s based on who came first or second during our school athletics day last term.

Some of the highlights of the district athletics competition were the performances of June (800m), Darcy (800m), Amelia F (1500m), Amelia W (shot put), Nathan (200m), Sunny (800m) with many, many more.

Amazingly, we had 17 students who came first or second in their selected events (A Division). These students qualified to compete at the next level where they will represent the Scoresby District at the Division Athletics Competition.

Overall, HT & St. Mary’s came fifth in the Scoresby District which is a a credit to everyone’s hard work.

Overall, Mr. D was very proud of the HT team in their wonderful efforts and particularly the outstanding encouragement they displayed towards both HT students and other competitors.

School Athletics Day

School Athletics Day

Last Thursday, (4th of March) all students in years 3 to 6 attended Ringwood Athletics track participate in our school athletics day.  This yearly event is an opportunity for students to learn and participate in a range of track and field events and the results are used to guide Mr. D (Our Sports Teacher) in selecting a school team to represent Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s at the District Athletics event next term. Some of the different events that the students participated in were discus, shot put, hurdles, high jump, long jump and triple jump as well as a range of running events such as the 100 metre sprint, 200 metre sprint and 800 metre run. Students competed against other students in their year level and the points they earned from each event contributed to overall house score.  After such a big day a big congratulations needs to go out to all our wonderful athletes and to Bunarong House (Gold) for winning the house trophy.

A big thank you must go to all the wonderful parents who gave up their time to help with the running of the day and for the staff with helping to make the day so smooth for everyone. Well done to  Mr. D and Mrs Patmore for organizing the school athletics day and to Lara for helping Mrs. Patmore with scoring.

Here are some photos that were take in on the day.

Friday’s School Assembly (6 March)

Friday’s School Assembly (6 March)

Hi everyone,

Here is Friday’s school assembly.  During our assembly we hear from some of our year 2 students who gave us a good reminder of making sure we show respect for our school by putting rubbish in the red wheelie bins.  We also heard from our sports leaders who will be starting some sports clubs during lunchtimes over the next few weeks as well as recapping our fabulous athletics day (unfortunately this part was not recorded). Congratulations to all our wonderful ‘Student of the Week’ and TORCH award winners who displayed so many great values that we try to use at school.

We are hoping to do a live streaming of our next Friday assembly in 2 weeks time so please keep an eye out for the link to this assembly via our school newsletter, Operoo and our school blog.

A big thank you to Rebecca and Mya for your wonderful photography and video work during Friendship Groups and at our assembly.

Home Learning is ‘up and running’

Home Learning is ‘up and running’

Hi everyone,

Welcome to term 2 – a completely new way of learning from outside the four walls of the school classroom. Today is a ‘settling in’ day like most of us would normally do for a new term. Our parents (who are also our first teachers) may need some guidance during the day as many of them have not been to primary school since the dinosaurs roamed the Earth (well maybe not that long).

Today, here is a simple activity for all parents to try to do sometime during today’s day of learning. I would like parents to take a picture of their child/ren completing some of their learning. It may be of them working at a desk, practising some meditation skills, watching a video that their teacher has shared with them or having a brain break doing one of Mrs. Harrison’s fantastic PE exercises.

I then would like parents to send this photo to their class teacher as a quick way of touching base with them. Class teachers may not necessarily reply to these emails as they will be teaching throughout the day but it is a nice way to show them that your child is engaged in our home learning program. I would love to put some of these photos onto the school blog as well so if you give permission for me to post a photo of your child/ren please CC me in on the email to the class teacher. My email address is

Please also note that the Prep to Year 2 online program will begin after the students have made their way through the pack that was provided at the end of last term.

Below is a list of all teaching staff’s email addresses for your reference.

Cheers and have a great day with your beautiful families.
