Ms Wade: Congratulations to Ms Donna Wade who recently had a very successful Performance Review of her role as Religious Education Coordinator at Trinity. As a result, Donna has been offered another 4 year contract as REC. Donna does an amazing job of ensuring our liturgies and MJR are kept alive and Trinity are blessed to have her on our staff! Being a leader is often a thankless job so if you see Donna around, please thank her and congratulate her! Thank you to the many parents and staff who participated in her review process.
Amazing Students and Staff: It never ceases to amaze myself or the staff of the talented and adaptable children that we have here at Trinity. What a credit to you as parents and to our school.
Yesterday, I had the pleasure of listening to our choir! Wow, their singing is just amazing! To reflect back over the term there are plenty of pictures in the newsletter and on FaceBook for you all to see!
Book Café: How fortunate are we to have our Year 3 to 6 students experience this wonderful opportunity to immerse themselves in literature each term at the Terracotta after school. Thank you to Penny Lucas for this amazing initiative and to the Terracotta for hosting it! The children absolutely love it! We wonder what the next hot book is that they will be reading next term?
Learning Journeys: On Wednesday we had our Learning Journeys. A special thank you to the many families who came along and participated in this wonderful reflection of the student's achievements across the term. The children and staff always love to see you here. A special thank you to the Clark’s who did an amazing job on the barbeque that everyone enjoyed.
Harden Show Barbecue: a very special thank you to Kate Foster for organising the Show Barbecue and our wonderful parents who came along on the day to assist. Although the weather was not fantastic we managed to raise $900.
Canteen: A very special thank you to Rosanna Hetherington who has done an amazing job on the canteen this term while Helen Stevenson has been on leave. Thank you Rosie and we look forward to seeing Helen back at Trinity next term.
Community Council Vacancy: We have a position on our Community Council that we urgently need to fill. Please contact a Council member or myself if you are interested. The parents who are on the Council or who have been on there, find it to be a very rewarding experience.
Thank you parents: A very special thank you to all our amazing parents. Your willingness to come in and offer your assistance for anything and everything is incredible. Without your assistance we would not be able to do what we do.
Have a lovely and safe holiday! We look forward to seeing you all back at Trinity on Tuesday, October 16. The children need to be in their summer uniform and wear their hats when going outside to play.
Well Done Emi!!!!
Emerson Mann-Rea competed at the Archdiocesan Public Speaking Finals in Boorowa last Friday and won her division!! Congratulations Emi!!!
Trinity teachers and friends are so proud of Emerson.
Making Jesus Real – 10 Ways to Bring Jesus Into Your Life
MJR provides us with the opportunity to recognise Jesus in practical and relevant ways throughout each and every day. MJR is a way of life for all members of our Trinity community to teach and witness to each other in all that we do and say. It is a positive, Catholic way of life highlighting the importance of respectful relationships with everyone that we come into contact with on a daily basis.
Here are 10 Ways to Be More Like Jesus
Read the Bible Be Humble Take Action Do Right Be Kind Give Thanks Be Wise Listen Love Pray
Trinity School staff will be teaming up with Sacred Heart Cootamundra Staff to participate in a Spirituality Day at St. Clements Retreat Centre, Galong on the first day of Term 4. (This is a pupil-free day for our students). Our staff are looking forward to a day of Spiritual Reflection and Renewal through Scripture.
Catholic educators need a “formation of the heart”: they need to be led to that encounter with God in Christ which awakens their love and opens their spirits to others so that their educational commitment becomes a consequence deriving from their faith, a faith which becomes active through love (cf. Gal 5:6)
Prayer for the Holidays
Loving God, we thank You for holiday times and the wonder and excitement that they engender in all our hearts. We praise You for all the goodness and grace You generously pour out on us and all people,– and especially thank You for the many blessings we gain from these important times of holiday fun and family togetherness.
During these holidays we particularly remember those that are alone, ill or going through times of stress or difficulty. We pray that You would draw very close to each and every one. Let them know Your special peace in their heart and give to each one Your sufficient grace.
We pray You may keep our children, teachers, and families safe over these holidays until we meet again in Term 4.
As we take a short break from our day-to-day school life for the upcoming holidays, I would like to take an opportunity to thank the many students, teachers, families, and friends of the community who have made this term such a wonderfully productive and successful term. Thanks to all the people who have helped in any way through action or words, deeds or presence. I am truly grateful we are part of such a supportive and vibrant school community. I look forward to working with everybody again next term and wish all families and friends a happy and safe holiday with many laughs, smiles and good times.
Wishing everyone a wonderful holiday.
A Better Friend
In this week’s final session of the Peer Support module Keeping Friends the children participated in a board game, reinforcing all of the concepts and skills that have been learned over the past 7 weeks. They were reminded of the qualities of a good friend and the skills needed to maintain friendships and make new friends.
To celebrate a very successful program, each Peer Support group sat down together at recess with an icecream. They were given the opportunity to celebrate what they have learned and the new friendships and connections they have made.
Congratulations to all our Year 5/6 students who have displayed exceptional leadership throughout the program.
Trent Barrett League Tag Team
Last Tuesday our Year 3 / 4 Girls League Tag side travelled to Wagga to compete in the Trent Barrett Shield Finals. The girls had a great day and played their best over three games. They were up against tough competition with Sturt PS, Lutheran Primary and Hay PS but the girls certainly displayed their developing skills and teamwork in each game. Many thanks to parents and friends who assisted with travel and supported the team on the day and special thanks to Jen McKay for helping to coach the side and offering great advice and game tactics to the team.
Coming Sports Events
Boorowa Touch Football and Netball Gala Day
The Boorowa Touch Football and Netball Carnival will be held at the Boorowa Showground on Friday 25th October (Term 4). Children from Years 2-6 will be participating in this carnival.
Have a wonderful relaxing holiday

Bottom Oval Irrigation:
As many of you may have noticed the irrigation has been completed on the bottom oval. With the hot weather heading our way, it will be beneficial to our students to have lush green grass on the bottom oval so that they can continue to play soccer, football, and cricket.
The shade sails have been ordered and are currently being manufactured. We are still in the process of obtaining cables and poles for the shade sails. A call-out will be made soon for parents and friends to come in and assist with putting the shade sails together so that the outdoor library area will be ready to use. These will be installed on the patio area off the library. We have also ordered the outdoor library furniture and it should arrive at the beginning of Term 4.
A very successful year and we would like to thank everyone involved in assisting to raise the funds needed to get these projects off the ground and completed.

This year all students from K-6 have been given a Home Reading Log where they are to record their reading each night.
It has been great to see the number of ‘Reading Nights’ children have recorded in their home reading log.
Once children reach a reading goal of nights they are rewarded with a sticker for their book from Mrs Gorham.
This week we celebrate 25 Nights Reading.
