This afternoon at assembly our TORCH bearers of the term were awarded to one special person in each level who displays each of our TORCH values. Our TORCH values of tolerance (T), optimism (O), respect (R), confidence (C) and honesty (H) are at the heart of what we teach at Holy Trinity and provide our students with practical examples of how to live out of school motto of ‘Love One Another’.
Congratulations to Owen (Prep), Tyler (1/2), Olivia (3/4) and Anneliese (5/6) for being such fantastic recipients of the TORCH Bearers for term 2.
On Wednesday the 26th June some of the 5/6 girls represented HT in the Interschool Sports Round Robin competition. Our girls made it into the Division 1 playoffs because we had won our games from the first day of competition a couple of weeks ago. In our first game today we played against Bayswater South which was a really tough game and the final outcome was 1-1. The next game was against St Bernadette’s (we won against them on our first day) and again we won this time 2 – 0. Our final game was against St. Judes which was the game that all the girls wanted to win the most since we are sister schools. Thankfully, we won this game 3 – 0.
Overall the HT girls soccer team tied for district champion and will be off to play in the division championships on the 2nd Wednesday of next term. Great stuff girls on your performance over the two days.
In the 5/6 level this term we have been learning about the different forms of energy including light, magnetic, kinetic, elastic and chemical energy. As part of our learning we all wrote an information report and made a model. Students used all sorts of materials with building their models including cardboard, tin foil, straws, old wires and lego pieces. Yesterday (Thursday 27 June) the year five students got to present their models and I think everyone was amazed about how much knowledge we had learnt during our topic. The models were very impressive particularly how much detail each student went to build their models. We were also lucky enough to show our models to the 1 Yellow students.
Here are a few pics of the day …..
On Wednesday the 26th of June our boys football team went to Lewis Park to participate in Division 1 boys footy competition. The boys were really fired up for our first game against Kent Park Primary. Unfortunately, we got a bit of a smashing in this game but this did not dampen our spirits for our future games. In the next game Holy Trinity played Boronia-K-12. We were tied after the first quarter but slowly Boronia got on top of us and eventually beat us by a couple of goals. In our final game we played our neighbours at St. Judes. St. Judes were in front for the whole game until the last quarter when we caught up but we left our run a bit late and sadly lost by one goal.
Overall we had a lot of fun playing together as a team over the two round robin days. Thanks to Mr.B for being our coach and for our captain and vice captain for leading us. Great stuff boys!
On Friday the 21rst of June the 5/6 girls represented HT at an all girls AFL football tournament. During the day we played a lot of different schools including the Fairhills Primary (we won 33 to 0) , Waverley Christian College (we won 13 to 12), Kent Park Primary (we won 18 to 1), Rowville Primary (we won 45 to 7) and The Basin (we won 11 to 6). We played so well throughout the day which meant that we reached the semi finals where we played Karoo Primary. Sadly, we just lost a very close game 12 to 13. Overall we had five wins and one loss which was a brilliant result for our team. We had lots of great players throughout the day but our best and fairest players were Liv and Glenys.
Overall, we all played really well and enjoyed the day despite it being very wet. Thanks to Mrs. Harrison and Mr. B for helping out so much with the day.
This term in Digitech the students in the 3/4 Level have been exploring using Adobe Photoshop. As part of this topic the students took a variety of different photos in front of our school’s green screen. The students learnt how to remove the green screen background within the photoshop program and then place the person on an alternative background. One of the important parts during this process was for the students to imagine themselves as if they were actually in that background and try to replicate this in front of the green screen. The students final project required them to recreate an action shot of them doing something they would like to do. Here are the results of our projects …..
On Thursday (13th of June), Holy Trinity and St Marys celebrated Trinity Feast Day as well as having Italian Day. At the start of the day we had a parade of our costumes on the basketball court. Lots of students and teachers dressed up in Italian themed clothing. During the day the students coloured in some Italian landmarks as well as learning more about Italian culture. In the mini space students played botchy ball the game is kind of like lawn bowls but for kids. After lunch the whole school gathered in the Community Hall to watch an Italian comedy show. Everyone had a ball!
Overall it was a great day and a big thank you Seniora for organising all the activities.
On Tuesday the 11th of June our 5\6 soccer team participated in winter school sports.
The boys soccer team didn’t have the best start losing to St. Bernadette’s 0-6. In our second game we played against Boronia and we smashed them 13-0. In the boys last game we played against Wattleview and it took a lot of our adrenalin to play it. In the first half no one managed a goal but in the second half there wasn’t a goal for a while until we finally got a goal in the last vital seconds of the game. We all celebrated the 1-0 victory.
The girls soccer team firstly played against St. Bernadette’s and they finally won a tough contest 7 to nil. In the second game we played against Boronia K-12 and again we again we won 7 to nil. In our final contest we played against Wattleview and we played a great game winning 10 to nil.
In the end both the Holy Trinity boys and girls made it through into the finals.
Thank you to Mrs Harrison and Mrs Dowling for coaching us.
On Tuesday the 11th of June the 5/6s had winter school sports. I played for the footy team and we played on Lewis Road. The first game we won against St. Bernadettes in tight game where Thomas Anderson kicked the winning goal after the siren. In the second game we played against Boronia K-12 and we lost against them because they were a very good team. In our last game we won against Wattleview which meant that we came second overall in the competition. Overall it was a really fun day and we are looking forward to playing our next round robin in two weeks time.
We want to thank Mr B for coaching us particularly during lunch times.
Look what the amazing Grade One artists created last week. After reading Clifford the Big Red Dog they drew bright and colourful pups. So proud of their efforts. Here is just a few of them.
Today (11th of June) some of the girls from the 5/6 level girls competed in our Interschool Winter Sports Netball Tournament HT had three netball teams, Aqua, Blue & Cyan. We had eight girls in each team and we all played three games. We competed against three other schools, St Bernadettes, Wattleview and Boronia K – 12. Our Aqua team won 2 out of 3 games, our Blue team won all 3 of their games and Cyan won 1 out of 3 games (including a draw in one game). It was a great effort from everyone and we all had a really fun and exciting time.
Thank you to Miss Nevin and Miss Ryan for all your fantastic coaching skills as well as umpiring all the games and supporting us throughout the day. We can’t wait until our next games in two weeks time. 😀
