On Wednesday 24th of August and Tuesday 6th of September, the students from Years 5 and 6 students represented HT and St. Mary’s at tennis at Mountain Gate.
The students chosen to play tennis were divided up into 2 boys teams, Team A and Team B, as well as one girls team. Team A consisted of mainly Year 6 boys whilst Team B consisted of mainly Year 5 boys. The girls team consisted of both students from Years 5 and 6.
Some of the schools that we played against included Boronia K-12, Kent Park, Wattleview, St Judes and Scoresby. When Team A was playing games on court Team B would be cheering, counting the team’s points or practising and getting ready for their upcoming game. Then Team A and Team B would swap and it was great to receive encouragement throughout the day. Everyone was very enthusiastic even when the other schools were winning.
Overall, it was a very successful and well organised day with all teams winning some games. Well done to all students for their great behaviour and for representing our school with such great sportsmanship.
Here are a few photos of us in action at our games ……
On Wednesday August 24th and Tuesday 6th September the years 5’s and 6’s represented Holy Trinity and St. Mary’s at Interschool Cricket. The other schools that we played against included Wattleview, Scoresby, St Judes, Kent Park and Bayswater West and all games were played at HV Jones Reserve at Mountain Gate. We were divided into two team with team A being an all boys team and team B being a mixed team.
We were the first school to arrive at the ground so we had some time to practise our bowling and batting skills. Once all the schools arrived we ate some food and went to our assigned cricket pitches to play our games. Each school had an A and B team and for the first day the A teams played against the B teams.
On day 1 our A team was ‘on fire’ and won all their games while our B team played well but missed out on achieving any victories. However, on day 2 all the B teams played against one another and the A teams played the other A teams from the other schools. The B team showed how much they had improved throughout the competition by winning half of their games and once again our A team won all of their games meaning they were they were the champions of the entire tournament. As Division champion our A team will play against the winners of other Divisions at the cricket District Championship next term.
Overall, it was a highly successful two days for our cricket teams and they represented our school using the same TORCH values that they use at school.

On Wednesday the 24th of August and Tuesday the 6th of September the year 5/6 students represented Holy Trinity & St. Mary’s in Interschool Sports for Softball. The competition took place at Gilbert Park where we competed against teams from Knox Park, Bayswater West, Kent Park and Wattleview. Our school had two teams compete with one team being an all girls team and another a mixed team.
Both HT teams were very successful during the competition with both teams winning all of their matches on the first day except for the game between both Holy Trinity teams where the HT mixed team won.
On the second day of competition we were equally successful with Holy Trinity defeating Knox Park in the grand final by 8 runs. Both teams were premiers of the Scoresby district and will play against the other district winning teams in the Division Interschool Softball competition in term 4.
Overall, everyone really enjoyed the representing HT & St. Mary’s in softball and consistently demonstrated the TORCH values throughout the competition. Well done to everyone and thank you to Miss Tubby and Mr. D for helping to coach and prepare us for the competition.

Earlier this term the students in years 4 and 5 were lucky enough to attend the production of Anastasia at Monash University performed by the students of Emmaus Collage,
So many of our students were amazed by the costumes, the lights, the storyline. Overall most of us thought the Production was amazing and the cast were brilliant!
This is what a couple of our year 5 students thought ….
Alexa: The production was amazing they did so quick with the dressing and did really well with the singing/lines.
Ethan: Amazing, no mistakes, clean and auto was very good.
We thank Emmaus College for the opportunity to attend the Anastasia Production and many of us will aspire to perform in productions like this in the future.
As this is Nick Wakeling’s last year as State Member for Ferntree Gully, the Year 6 School Captains were invited to attend his ‘Annual Junior School Captains Luncheon’.
On the 9th of September, the Captains, Mia, Zeke, Ella G and Nathan, attended the luncheon hosted by Mr Wakeling at the Knox Club. This was an opportunity to meet with other primary school leaders in the Knox area. When Mr Wakeling called up Holy Trinity, we had to introduce ourselves and tell everyone what High School we are going to next year. We shared with other school leaders and their teachers what we do as leaders of Holy Trinity. We told the group about what we may like to do in the future, as a career. Finally, we spoke about what would change about our society. We were nervous about talking in front of everyone, but spoke well.
We learnt about Mr Wakeling’s role, as well as other leader’s opinions and thoughts of being a school leader. We really enjoyed the experience.

What a spectacular Art Show our students showcased this week! Please find below a link to the music video that the Performing Arts club put together for the Art Show opening night and a link to some of the highlights of the evening.
Well done to Mrs Laming for another amazing Art Show!
A few dedicated Grade 4 and 5 Art clobbers have been spending their lunch and recess times in the art room. They used dry felting and sewing beads to decorate the Wedge Tail Eagle for the Art Show.
Well done everyone 👍
Here’s a sneak peak
The students are excited to show you the wonderful artworks they have created.
Today some talented Grade 5 artists decorated letters for our welcome sign with beautiful Australian native flowers. They went all out and they look sensational.
