Student Learning: Recently we had Professor Kaye Lowe, Literacy Consultant visit Trinity and work in the classrooms with the students and with the teachers. Kaye was astounded with the progress that all of our students are making at Trinity which she attributed to the hard working teaching staff and all of our parents who are supporting the children at home with their learning. In the busyness of the day it is often hard to find the time to hear the children read and it is wonderful that this is given priority both at school and at home. This applies for all students-young or in the senior classes. It is so important to keep our children reading.
Numeracy Learning: On Wednesday June 19, Mr Matt Sexton, Numeracy Consultant, will be visiting classrooms working with the students and with the class teachers. The staff and the students love having the consultants come to Trinity and it is wonderful to see the leaps that the children are taking across the school from Kinder to Year 6 with their learning every single day, in and out of the ‘Learning Pit’. Have you asked your child lately where they are in the ‘Learning Pit?’
School Photos: On Tuesday 11th June we have our annual school photos being taken. We ask that all students wear their blue winter school uniform, this includes the school tie and school coloured hair accessories. Photos will be taken with the blue woollen school jumper on and we ask that all students have their jumper at school that day. Please note that money and school photo envelopes are due back at school by Tuesday 11th June.
URGENT Community Council Positions Vacant: Unfortunately, we have been unable to fill all positions. I urge all parents to consider taking up one of the following positions: Community Council Chair, Secretary, Treasurer and Events and Promotion person. We meet twice a term and the meetings go for no more than an hour. The next Community Council meeting is on Monday June 17 at 6pm.
School Counsellor Parent Survey: CE are currently conducting a review of school counsellor and well being services. We invite you to complete an online survey which may be accessed by following the hyperlink:
In advance, we thank you for taking the time to share your insights and perspectives. We value the input of all our parents.
Mrs Cooper has been on Long Service leave for the past 2 weeks having a well earned rest from teaching. We look forward to seeing Rebecca back at Trinity on Monday June 17. WE are certain she will have lots of stories to share about her recent holiday.
Next week, is Sabbath Week. During Sabbath Week the children do not have to complete any Homework other than reading. Use this opportunity to play a board game with your family, go to the park, have a picnic or do something special.
Have a lovely long weekend
School Photos: This years school photo day is on Tuesday 11 June. Please make sure your child/ren are looking very smart in their winter uniform.
Buddy Reading: The Year 5 students are visiting Bunyip each Wednesday for about 20 minutes in their recess break for Term 2. This is a fantastic program where the Year 5 students read a story to our little friends at Bunyip.
Toddler Gym: This free 8-week balance and coordination program is a great way for Mums, Dads and carers to get out of the house while building important developmental skills in their toddlers. There are two sessions available – Wednesday 2pm-3pm & Thursdays 9.30am-10.30am. Please contact the front office if you are interested.
Open House Assembly: The Year 3/6 Open House Assembly will be held on Friday 14 June at 2.30pm. Parents and community members are most welcome to attend.
Making Jesus Real
It never ceases to amaze me the number of wonderful awards I am able to give out to students from Trinity each week in recognition of the ways they are ‘Making Jesus Real’ in the everyday life of Trinity Catholic School. The teachers and fellow students are continuously witnessing and acknowledging the many acts of kindness, compassion, respect and love filtering throughout our school.
Sacrament of Confirmation
Next Wednesday 12th June, the children preparing for the Sacrament of Confirmation will join together to participate in their Retreat Day. A reminder to these students to have their Saints Research ready to share on this day.
Please continue to keep the students working towards the Sacrament of Confirmation in your prayers. Confirmation mass is on Sunday the 16th June at St. Anthony’s Church. All families and Parishioners are welcome to join our Year 5 / 6 children for this special Sacramental Mass.
Children from Trinity have been asked to come along and join the choir for our Confirmation mass. If you are able to join the choir please let Miss Wade know next week or just come along to Choir Practice on Thursday. All are most welcome!

THOUGHT FOR THE WEEK
Wishing everybody a wonderful week
Archdiocesan Touch Football
Last week Amber McKay travelled to Penrith for Touch Football trials for the Archdiocesan Touch Football team selections. Amber played 6 games on the day and played her hardest. She is to be commended for her commitment to training right up to the event. Amber was selected in the ‘Possibles and Probables’ team on the day but narrowly missed out in the final selection for the MacKillop team.
Archdiocesan Cross Country
Last Tuesday Bea Lucas travelled to Canberra to compete in the Archdiocesan Cross Country carnival in the 8/9 year girls division. Bea competed in cold conditions against tough competitors on the day and should be proud of her efforts in challenging herself at this level.
Our Trinity school community are very proud of the achievements of both Amber and Bea and their willingness to take on new sporting challenges. Thanks to both girls for proudly representing Trinity.
Trinity Athletics Carnival
Children from K-6 have been training this term in their PE and Sport time for ‘Track and Field’ events in preparation for the Athletics Carnival in a couple of weeks. All children are looking forward to competing in the upcoming carnival.
More information will be sent home next week regarding our Athletics Carnival.
Thank you for your continued support of sport at Trinity

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.
