Prayer: Lord Jesus, thank you for the cross you have asked me to take up. Grant me the grace to carry it through this day, and for the perseverance to bear it as long as You ask.
Farewell Whybrows: We sadly said goodbye to Roy and Angus Whybrow today. They are leaving Harden and moving to Wagga. The Whybrow family has been apart of the Trinity community for 18+ years. We thank the Whybrow family for the amazing support and numerous hours they have spent helping out at fundraising events, on committees etc. We wish you all the best and hope the boys settle in well at their new school.
Parliament: Today our Year 6 leaders presented their first Parliament assembly which was very capably conducted by our 2020 Prime Ministers, Tilly Bowman and Poppy Lucas. Congratulations and well done to all of our Year 6 students, you are certainly stepping up and embracing your leadership roles with maturity and confidence. A special thank you to Ms Donna Wade for organising the assembly.
Special Initiatives and Clubs at Trinity: At Trinity we endeavour to provide a range of gender inclusive activities for all our students. We are very fortunate to have many extra-curricula activities at Trinity, supervised by very enthusiastic teachers. Every Monday and Tuesday during lunch times, Rebecca Cooper organises Handball Club, each Thursday, Penny Lucas organises Podcast Club and Julie Doolan assisted by Tylerr and Tassie, run Milk and Bookies Club and each Friday, Mr Niddrie takes STEM Club, which provides an opportunity for the students to participate in Science, Technology and engineering activities. Our talented staff provide these activities during their break times as well as after school. Each Monday afternoon our students participate in Book Café at the Terracotta. This is conducted by Penny Lucas. Currently the students in Years 3 and 4 are attending each Monday afternoon from 3:30pm to 4:15 pm and the cost is $2 for a drink. We thank Ann and Mick Burns at the Terracotta for hosting this for us. The students who attend developed a rich love of literature and their comprehension and reading go from strength to strength! Next Term, Years 5 and 6 will be able to attend and are already looking forward to it.
The BMX track is up and running and the children are absolutely loving it! The children have rostered days on, and they are sensibly following safety and road rules. A special thank you to Ally and Brad Betts for assembling the bike racks as well as a bike for us this week. We still have 5 more bikes to erect if you can spare some time, we’d love your help! Please contact the front office if you are to assist.
Playgroup is held every Thursday at 9:30am. Playgroup is for 0 to 5-year-old children and is a wonderful opportunity to come along and have fun participating in free play, music appreciation with Tori Corcoran and story-time with the Principal plus borrowing from the Library. The cost is free so come along and join in the fun!
Community Council: We are in desperate need for a Treasurer! This is a wonderful opportunity to get involved and meet parents at Trinity and actively participate in decision making. The Community Council meet twice each term on a Monday from 5:30 pm to 6:30 pm. If you are interested in this position, please contact Charlie Lucas, Community Council Chair or myself. Our next meeting will be held on Monday March 16.
Principal Retreat: Next Tuesday I will be travelling to Bowral to attend the Principal retreat and will return to school on Monday March 9. Whilst I am away Rebecca Cooper, our very capable Assistant Principal will be in charge of Trinity. Should any issues arise during the week, please don’t hesitate to contact Rebecca and she will assist you.
Don’t forget to check the Trinity school calendar, Trinity website and the regular updates on Schoolzine and FaceBook.
Have a lovely weekend!

First Eucharist and Reconciliation
The Sacramental preparation for First Eucharist and Reconciliation sessions are well on the way. The preparation sessions are conducted over a period of 6 weeks on Tuesday evenings in the school Library from 6:00pm – 7:00pm. It is important that candidates and their support family member/s attend these preparation sessions to adequately prepare for the reception of these Sacraments. The candidates receiving the Sacraments of Reconciliation and Eucharist this term are:
Bella Betts, Billy Corkhill, Thomas Edwards, Charlie Jackson, Zoe Lenehan, Beatrice Lucas, Emerson Mann-Rea, Tomas Mariani, Grace Metcalfe, Michael Oakley, Tommie Parker, Skye Peterson, Imogen Smith and Ryan Sumich
We ask our Trinity families, friends and community members to pray for these special people throughout their preparations.
This week we celebrated a whole school mass led by Year 4 students for Ash Wednesday. We are thankful Father Dom could officiate this mass in Father Lolesio’s absence who was otherwise committed. Thank you to Mr Niddrie and the Year 4 students who prepared the mass and led the readings along with Trinity staff.
Ash Wednesday also marks the beginning of the annual Caritas Australia Project Compassion Appeal. Donations to Project Compassion allow Caritas Australia, the Catholic Agency for International Aid and Development, to work with local communities around the world to alleviate poverty, hunger, oppression and injustice. We encourage you to put your compassion into action this Lent through your prayer, fasting and giving by supporting Project Compassion. Each classroom has a Project Compassion Giving box on their Altar and there are Project Compassion boxes available from Miss Wade if families would like to take one home. Your donations to this important initiative is greatly appreciated. Donations can also be made online via the website at https://lent.caritas.org.au/#blank
Let’s Go Further, Together!

This week in Science, Kinder/Yr 1 have been learning all about 'Paddock to Plate'. Where does the food we eat come from? They had a little taste testing session of flavoured milk & learnt all about where it came from!
Year 2/3 were very busy this week planting their succulents. Throughout this year, the students will focus on looking after their plants, in the same way of nurturing themselves in setting goals and growing to be stronger minds.
This week Year 4 were looking at finding the perimeter of a variety of 2D shapes, which includes circles. Thank you to Jacksons Bakery for supplying the tastiest circles!! We enjoyed this 'hands-on' aspect and are looking forward to the next one.
In Year 5/6 Maths we have been challenging our thinking with Numbers. Students made their own number tiles and used them to build a 'plus' sign so that the sum of the digits vertically and horizontally was the same. Many aspects of the Working Mathematically process were called on as the lesson unfolded and many properties and facts about numbers come into play. The children also created number algorithms using a set of tiles. They were to demonstrate the algorithm by making and drawing it so that another group would be able to solve it. Here are some photos of group leaders who shared their work to the class.
Kinder/Year 1: Ayeisha Atallah & Harry Edwards
Year 2/3: Shannon Kerrison & Poppy-Rose Howarth
Year 4: Bella Betts & Zoe Lenehan
Year 5/6: Riley Jackson & Poppy Lucas
Kinder/Year 1: Jack Gadd (absent)
Year 4: Angus Whybrow & Billy Corkhill (absent)
Year 5/6: Roy Whybrow & Tylerr Leitner
Learning Support Awards
This week's outstanding students making huge gains with their learning are: Fletcher Betts, Shannon Kerrison & Tylerr Leitner
This year all students from K-6 have been given a Home Reading Log where they are to record their reading each night.

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.
