On Thursday 7th April, we gathered together as a school community to present our TORCH Bearers of term 1. To be chosen as a TORCH Bearer is a significant achievement because only one special person in each year level is chosen for this award who consistently 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 Parker (Prep), Primrose (1), Lucas (2), Daniel W (3), Olivia (4), Cara G (5) and Abigail (6) for being such fantastic recipients of the TORCH Bearers for term 1.
In addition, we presented our SRC (Student Representative Committee) members for 2022 with their badges during this assembly. Two students were chosen from each class in years 1 to 5 after writing an application letter as to why they think they would be a good SRC candidate. Students who were interested in becoming an SRC wrote their letters in the Tech Lab at an assigned recess or lunch time and then these letters were read out anonymously in their class by the class teacher. By reading out the letters anonymously this reduces the chances of the voting process becoming a ‘popularity’ contest but rather each student votes on qualities highlighted in the letter of the person they thought would do the best job as an SRC. One student will represent each class at our term 2 meetings and the other student will represent the class for term 3 when we meet at lunchtime each Thursday. In term 4 our SRC may meet less frequently as we focus our energy on putting some of the initiatives we have worked through in the previous terms into action. Sometimes this may mean we require all our SRCs to help make HT & St. Mary’s the best school possible for everyone.
Congratulations to our SRCs for 2022.

Today, our new school principal, Mr. Scutt, together with our new school captains helped to conduct our first Monday morning assembly for this year. Today was an exciting time for our year six students who received their school jackets. I’m sure you will see them proudly wearing their jackets around the school throughout the year- even when it’s 30+ degrees.
As parents are currently unable to join us for assembly we have recorded it for you to view in your own time.
We look forward to hopefully welcoming parents back for school assemblies soon.
All students had an amazing day today working with Andrew Chinn in year groups throughout the day, and then finishing with a whole school concert.
Andrew is a singer songwriter of liturgical music, and we use a lot of his music for our Masses and liturgies here at school.
Many thanks to Andrew for allowing us to record the concert so that we could share it with our community. I know that many students are really excited about sharing this video with families so that they can show off their talents to you…
Here is the link to today’s school assembly which is the first time we had done a ‘live stream’ of this event. We will continue to stream our Friday assemblies each fortnight particularly for those in our community who are unable to come into HT in person. We will continue to develop this stream (particularly the video and sound quality) over the coming assemblies.
At Monday’s Assembly we celebrated Anzac Day. Anzac Day is a very special day where we remember all the people that fought and died for the freedom that we have in Australia.
Our Anzac Day ceremony was very special where we prayed for the sacrifices that our have soldiers made, we listened to the Ode, Reveille and the National Anthem, and followed the one minute silence out of respect for those that have served for our country.
