From the Principal

Mr Justin Beckett

mr_justin_beckettHow lucky are our students? In recent weeks, we have had the mobile roadshow from Questacon visit on two separate occasions; next week our Year 10s will hear a very important message from John Maher who travels Australia to educate students about the risks of driving while tired or distracted by phones; and later in the week, our Year 6 students will undertake the Ration Challenge during Refugee Week activities.

It is part of our holistic approach at Trinity. Yes, academic excellence is our core business but we believe in educating the whole student by offering a wide range of other experiences which add value to the class work.

Questacon presented science in a way that challenged our students to think differently. One of the sessions focussed on design, using a roller coaster as an example. The session started with a discussion about safety and risk. They were shown some footage of a dodgy roller coaster and talked about how that made them feel. Then one student put on VR goggles while they went on a ride on a very hairy scary roller coaster ride (while the other students could see in non-VR format what the student was seeing.) It was quite amusing because the selected student wearing the VR goggles squealed and reacted by moving and dodging.

That prompted a discussion about actual risk versus perceived risk and how important it can be to take risks when designing and pushing new frontiers. The students were then put in groups where they had a 30 minute time challenge to design their own roller coaster from a selection of provided items, ranging from cardboard to paper cups. They came up with some amazing designs. Another group delved into designs that fly and used a wind tunnel to test their theories.

Carmen’s Message is the title of John Maher’s presentation. It’s his daughter’s name. John has been travelling to schools to spread his poignant message ever since his daughter was tragically killed in a single vehicle accident. It is a moving and thought provoking presentation and is timely as many of our Year 10 students start to earn their L plates.

Then our Year 6 students will eat a sparse diet during the ration challenge. It challenges them to think about how others live and no doubt, for those who can stick with the challenge, it will give them an insight into how lucky we are to have an abundance of food in Australia.

I’m looking forward to having many conversations with our students in coming weeks as these wonderful experiences shape their thoughts and actions.

   

From the Chaplain

Rev’d Bryn Jones

Pastoral Care Mentors are busy writing reports at the moment. The challenge is to look beneath the externals, percentages, ranks and the like, to deeper qualities like character, heart and spirit. What sort of human beings are our students becoming? I use the word “becoming” deliberately; we are all presented with opportunities to “become” our best selves every day. With every choice, in our words and actions, we add a page to the story of who we are becoming.

An educator I heard interviewed on the podcast On Being recently, commented on the dangerous attitudes to success often implicitly communicated by schools and the wider society. She said, if you ask a student what the measure of success looks like for them, they will invariably talk about a certain grade average, rank, or a certain career. Revealingly, if you ask a parent what success looks like for their child, they will invariably say something like, “I just want them to be happy, to do something that gives them pleasure, to be a good human being …” So where does the message get lost?

In the Christian tradition, our human vocation or calling is threefold:

  1. To simply ‘be’ who God made me to be and enjoy the gift of life to the fullest.
  2. To be myself in relationship with others – in community.
  3. To be who God made me in the context of meaningful work and service.

Notice, what I ‘do’, or the ‘work’ I choose comes last. Our culture nearly always inverts these three callings: we tell our kids if they get the right marks, they can choose the right job and ‘then’ they will be happy. But if we are honest this is not what we really believe to be true, as revealed by the response of parents to the question of what their children’s success looks like. Isn’t it about time we intentionally changed the message? Perhaps, something to consider while you reflect on your child’s report.

Beyond the bin!  Where does our waste end up?

As we head toward the end of another busy term, it is a good time to take stock. One of the great joys about working with children is the fact that every day brings change and new challenges. The individual needs of every learner can change at various times and it is a part of our charter to focus on all aspects of learning. One aspect that is often raised is the resilience of students: their ability to bounce back. This is such an important aspect of learning as it allows every student to take up a challenge, even though success is not guaranteed, and to learn much from the journey. We often marvel at the success of individuals but should always be aware that it is often their persistence, their willingness to bounce back from failures that has ensured their success. I have been fortunate enough to listen to many speakers over a number of years who have spoken about their success and how this only occurred because of their persistence. This is probably why we tend, as teachers and parents, to recognise and reward effort and celebrate success.  As A. Einstein stated “A person who never made a mistake never tried anything new.” Therefore, we encourage students to try something new, to challenge the known and step into the unknown with patience and fortitude, as this will ensure greater understanding, deeper knowledge and a more fulfilling life.

AMC and ICAS Academic Competitions

The annual competitions will take place later in the Year. These are aimed at able students from Year 2 to Year 6 in various modes. An application letter and explanation can be found on the College Website (see below for link). To ensure entry these need to be returned by the due date.

Beyond the bin!  Where does our waste end up?

As part of their Term 2 unit of work – What’s My Footprint?, Year 3 visited the Albury Recycling Centre on Tuesday, 11 June. It was an eye-opening experience to see just how much waste ends up in landfill. Students were shocked by how many items they could see in landfill that could have been recycled. Year 3 students and teachers left feeling motivated to do the right thing and ensure that we manage our waste responsibly and to take full advantage of the excellent recycling facilities AlburyCity Council offers. – Mrs Simone Boyd

Senior School Competition and Assessment Opportunities

The Australian Mathematics Competition

The Australian Mathematics Competition will be run on Thursday 1 August. This competition is designed to extend and challenge students in Years 7-12 who achieve highly in Mathematics. It enables these students to test themselves against a large population, across Australia and beyond. Capable students can gain some useful diagnostic feedback and it is our aim to use this feedback to enhance learning programs for those students.

There are two ways that students can enter the competition:

  1. Selected students will be invited to participate by their teacher in Mathematics. In this case parents and students will be notified via email and given the option to confirm their participation.  The cost per test (invoiced separately to parents) is $6.50.
  2. Alternatively, parents can nominate their son or daughter to participate by emailing the Head of Mathematics, Mrs Kathy Fletcher fletcher@trinityac.nsw.edu.au by Wednesday 19 June. The cost per test (invoiced separately to parents) is $6.50.

International Competitions and Assessments for Schools (ICAS) in Science, English and Writing

ICAS Science, English and Writing Competitions will be offered at Trinity in 2019. These on-line competitions are designed to extend and challenge students in Years 7-12 who achieve highly in the related subjects in their academic studies. It enables these students to test themselves against a large population, across Australia and beyond. Capable students can gain useful diagnostic feedback and it is our aim to use this feedback to enhance learning programs for those students.

There are two ways that students can enter the competitions:

  1. Nomination from their teacher in Science or English. Parents of these students will be contacted and provided with the relevant information to go on-line to register and pay for their child’s participation should they wish their child to participate.  Parents are requested to email Heather Rau on heather.rau@trinityac.nsw.edu.au when they have been successful in this process.
  2. On-line registration by parents directly. This will be via the ICAS website, however, as we are currently waiting on ICAS to provide the necessary parent log-in code, please email Heather Rau at heather.rau@trinityac.nsw.edu.au who will provide this information as soon as it becomes available.

Please note: ICAS online registrations close on 31 July.  It is not possible to register after this date. 

Assessment of languages Competence (ALC)

The Assessment of Languages Competence (ALC) is a suite of tests, at different levels, designed to assess language competence in learners of additional languages. These on-line tests are designed to extend and challenge students who study French in Years 8-12 and test themselves against a large population, across Australia and beyond.  These tests will be run on Friday, 2 August from 11.50am to 1.30pm with a 10 minute break between tests; Listening (40 minutes) and Reading (40 minutes).

There are two ways that students can enter the competition:

  1. Selected students will be invited to participate by their French teacher. In this case parents and students will be notified via email and given the option to confirm their participation.  The cost (invoiced separately to parents) is $15.
  2. Alternatively, parents can nominate their son or daughter to participate by emailing the Head of Languages, Mrs Janine Haymes haymes@trinityac.nsw.edu.au by Wednesday 19 June. The cost (invoiced separately to parents) is $15.

Subject Selection Process for Students entering Year 9 2020

The Year 9 Subject Information Evening will be held in the Senior Centre South Building on Tuesday 18 June, from 6pm to 7.30 pm. Students and their parents will have opportunity to meet teachers to discuss the elective subjects offered in Year 9. It is a chance for students to ask questions and “find their own voice” as they make choices and decisions.

As children grow towards adulthood they need to learn about themselves: who they are and what they like to do. Subject choice as students move from Year 8 into Year 9 is a small but important part of this process.

Students will have an opportunity to choose two elective subjects for Year 9 and this will be a great chance for them to explore more fully the subjects which they have “tasted” and liked in Year 7 and 8. It also allows for greater time and depth of study in the two elective subjects chosen.  As a result, students will have a stronger grounding in these subjects and a stronger foundation for the rigour of senior subjects in Years 11 and 12.

To assist in the process of elective choice, a Subject Information Booklet is being compiled and will be distributed on the evening.

This booklet also outlines the course and academic expectations of the mandatory core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Human Society and Its Environment; the purpose and program for Religious and Values Education; and the personal development program found within the “Rite Journey”.

At Trinity Anglican College we design the subject lines in response to student preferences. Subsequent to the Subject Information Evening, students will be able to submit their subject preferences online (numbered in order of preference) and on the basis of this information the subject lines for the 2020 timetable will be created. Instructions about how to do this and a web link will be sent to parents next week to enable students to register their subject preferences. These preferences will need to be entered online no later than 25 June.

When the subject lines have been finalised, students will be asked to choose their two electives (again, in order of preference) based on the configuration of the lines. Parents and students will be notified when they are able to make these final choices online.

Teachers welcome all enquiries and we encourage students to start thinking about what they might like to study. I look forward to meeting you at the Subject Information Evening. Parents can contact me at adele.guy@trinityac.nsw.edu.au

Subject Selection Process for Students entering Year 10 2020

Students in Year 9 will have opportunity to re- select their elective subjects for Year 10. They will study two, rather than three electives. This change has been made to allow for greater time and depth of study in the two elective subjects chosen and in the core subjects. As a result, students will have a stronger grounding in these subjects and a stronger foundation for the rigour of senior study in Years 11 and 12.

To assist in the process of elective choice, a Subject Information Booklet has been compiled and will be sent to parents next week.   It can also be found on our Trinity Anglican College Website.

This booklet also outlines the course and academic expectations of the mandatory core subjects of English, Mathematics, Science and Human Society and Its Environment; the purpose and program for Religious and Values Education; and the Careers Education Program.

At Trinity, we create our subject lines in response to students’ needs. Students will be able to submit their subject preferences online (numbered in order of preference) and on the basis of this information the subject lines within the timetable for 2020 will be created. Instructions and a web link will be sent to parents next week to enable students to register their subject preferences. These preferences will need to be entered on-line no later than 25 June.

When the subject lines have been finalised, students will be asked to choose their two electives (again, in order of preference) based on the configuration of the lines. Parents and students will be notified when they are able to make these final choices on-line.

As was explained by the Head of Academic Administration, Kym Armstrong, at the Year 10 Information Evening at the beginning of the year, if students leave school prior to completing their Higher School Certificate, they will be awarded a Record of Student Achievement (ROSA) provided they have met NESA (NSW Educational Standards Authority) guidelines. Time requirements for the ROSA will be met within our timetable by the end of Year 10.

I welcome all enquiries and encourage students to start thinking about what they might like to study. They might want to continue in an elective they have studied in Year 9, or, try different subjects. If there are any questions, please email me on adele.guy@trinityac.nsw.edu.au.

Ms Kym Armstrong

Hang in there!  Assessment Tasks Nearly Finished for the Term!

The long weekend has been a welcome respite – a chance to breathe deeply – in the middle of a very busy term.  It is now only a few short weeks until the end of semester break when students will have a glorious three weeks to recoup, recover and recreate themselves.

Read More

The American term, ‘recreation,’ is one that resonates; whilst we love the holidays, the opportunity to spend time with friends and family and immerse ourselves in creative pursuits is very special and allows us to recreate ourselves anew.

All of our senior school students – from Years 7-12 – have been applying creative fervour to produce assessment tasks that paint a vivid picture of what they know and what they can do.  We commend them for their hard work; there might be an assessment task or two to submit before the semester break, but we are nearly there!

Please remind your young people that their teachers are a part of their support team and that they are here to help; they can cast eyes over a draft, listen to ideas and help with that next step.

If a student is unable to submit or sit an assessment task because of illness or mishap, please contact the Head of Academic Administration, Ms Kym Armstrong, or the Dean of Teaching and Learning, Mrs Adele Guy, when it is identified that a student will miss an assessment task.

I would like to commend the many students who have demonstrated real agency and responsibility in coming to see me to talk through arrangements around assessment tasks that are impacted by life events that occur beyond the school gates.  As a team, we can work through almost anything that is thrown in our way.

Not long now, until the holidays; may you revel in recreation!

Songwriting Workshop

On Friday 7 June, Trinity music students enjoyed a songwriting workshop with the dynamic duo, Cat and Leisha, from This Way North. The girls gave some great ideas for getting started in composing and students soon got stuck in, writing songs about everything from hunger, to coffee and relationships. The duo also provided some interesting advice about the music industry and how they managed to become successful musicians. We would like to thank Cat and Leisha for their time, energy and enthusiasm.

Paul Kelly Cup

CIS Cross Country

Trinity Anglican College was fortunate enough to have three teams compete in the Paul Kelly Cup, an AFL Gala day where all the primary schools in the district get together for a day of fun competition. We took three teams fielding 12 at a time, with 24 minute hit-outs. Starting with three pool games followed by finals.

Our girls team performed exceptionally making it through the rounds on top of their pool. Our pool rounds were approached with a great team intensity seeing the ball shared around, and multiple goal kickers. A star forward marking the ball well overhead and kicking multiple goals in our first games was Luca Gibbons kicking four goals in three games. Our rock in defence was Lucie Hayes, not having a single goal kicked against her in any of our Pool games. She tackled hard and was always first to the footy with exceptionally clean hands and a great boot out of the backline.

The girls monster performance took them all the way to the grand final. They came up against Thurgoona Public which finished on top of its pool and were well rested by the time the grand final came around. On the other hand, Trinity finished their semi only two minutes before. Our Co- Captain duo Chloe Sproule and Audrey Hogg revved the girls up for one final hit out for the day. The teams attack on the footy was inspiring; seeing numbers to the ball and never shying away from the bigger more physical bodies we came up against. In the end they came out victorious with a star performances from our co-captains kicking 12 goals between them for the day while playing out of the midfield all day. Their efforts earned them both best on ground. The girls will go on to Wagga next term to compete against other NSW schools.

The Year 5/6 boys team lost all three games but fought hard in every position. Our midfielders, Noah Misic, Jay McInnes and Archie Kreutzberger worked tirelessly throughout the day, while Louis Ceglar was tasked with a tagging role and shut down some key players. Ignatios Kamberos kicked two cracking goals to get us our only win against Howlong in a scratch match.

Mortimer Shield

On Tuesday, 11 June, 11 nervous Year 6 Trinity girls travelled to Wagga to participate in the Mortimer Shield League Tag Final. Due to heavy rain the day before, the fields were saturated and very muddy. The girls all played well and showed great sportsmanship. They finished up with a win, a loss and a draw. Luella Aldridge was voted by the rest of girls, as the best and fairest player on the day.

CIS Cross Country

Fifteen enthusiastic Trinity students travelled to Sydney Motorsport Park to represent RAS in the 2019 CIS Cross Country yesterday.

The weather was sensational and could be best described as perfect day for running. The students displayed immaculate behaviour, sportsmanship and attitude as they went about their day competing against the fastest students from all over NSW. All of the students did very well and should be incredibly proud of their efforts. A special thank you goes to the parents and families who accompanied the athletes on the day and helped to make the RAS area so positive and supporting.

After School Care

Trinity OOSH
Camp Australia

After five years’ service from Camp Australia, we have made the decision to change provider. We are excited to announce that AlburyCity will provide after school care and vacation care programs for primary school-aged children of Trinity Anglican College, on campus, from Term 3, 2019.

Vacation Care will not run at Trinity in the July school holidays, but Trinity families are encouraged to enrol into one of AlburyCity’s other vacation care programs: St Pats, North Albury or Albury. Vacation care will return to Trinity in the October school holidays, and subsequent school holidays as well as pupil free days.

Shane Walters will run the new AlburyCity Trinity OOSH program. Shane is a very experienced OOSH Coordinator and has led AlburyCity programs for more than 13 years. He has been based at St Pats OOSH, a service which has been rated as “exceeding” for the past eight years.

The new program at Trinity will provide parents with the security of knowing their children are being educated and cared for in a safe, friendly and relaxed environment each day. Drinks and nutritious snacks based on the Eat Smart, Play Smart program will be available for children, together with a wide variety of interesting play and recreational experiences. We encourage parents looking for after school care and vacation care to enrol their children now into the new OOSH service to help make the transition seamless. To enrol your child, please follow the steps below:

Step 1

Step 2

  • Log into your MFL account and tell Shane about you, your child and your booking requirements.

Step 3

  • Once you have submitted a booking request, you will be emailed an offer. Simply accept the offer, complete and submit your child’s enrolment form online to confirm your child’s spot.

We have a few important announcements to share  from after school care.  I will be starting a new job soon and my last day at Trinity will be 21 June. Rebekah (Jung-Tzu Hsia) will take over the following week. Rebekah (Jung-Tzu Hsia) and I would like to thank the Principal, all Trinity staff and parents for giving us the opportunity to look after your children. We enjoyed building rapport and planning experiences for them. We would like to wish you all the very best for the rest of 2019. Unfortunately there will be no vacation care running at Trinity these holidays – Debbie Soanes
