The students are very excited to share with you the link to the ‘Natale at HT’ showcase. It was very sad that we couldn’t participate in this year’s whole school concert so this was a way in which the students could still be part of a performance.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
HAVE SOME FUN LEARNING ITALIAN GREETINGS AND VOCAB!
In Italian this year we are already preparing for our school concert. Our theme for our concert will be Carnevale. Carnavale is a great way of celebrating Italian culture by acting and wearing colourful costumes. During Carnevale there are parades with lots of big colourful floats and people dancing on the back of big trailers. Also many people design special masks to wear during this celebration.
Our concert this year sounds very exciting and even though it is not until term 3 we cannot wait for it to take place.
I wonder if we might see some of these beautiful colours in our concert?
What a fun start to 2020 in the Italian/Performing Arts space! We played a very competitive game of La ruota della fortuna – Wheel of Fortune, and of course some singing and dancing too. The students are very excited about the school production – more news to follow about this soon!
It’s going to be a great 2020!
Ciao Signora Formichelli
Tonight (10th December) Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s will be gathering together to perform some Christmas carols. Each class will perform their own carol and the whole school will perform two songs. We have been practicing these during Italian sessions and eating times throughout this term.
Here were the classes practising this morning ……
Here is a quick snippet of a carol for tonight ….. IMG_2525
On Wednesday 20th November a team of 14 students represented Holy Trinity in an Italian poetry/drama competition at St John the Baptist Primary School in Ferntree Gully. The students had to learn an Italian poem off by heart and present it to an audience using correct pronunciation, expression and drama skills. The students were all fantastic and I couldn’t be more proud of each and every one of them! The student with the highest score for HT was Isabella Bonato and the encouragement award was presented to Chloe Hall. Overall the team placed 3rd. A brilliant effort!
After our very successful art show night on Tuesday night here is the video that was put together by Signora Formichelli and some of our 5/6 students who not only performed in the video but put together the different components of the video. Enjoy!!!
