Catholic Schools Week Food for Thought
12 Mar 2018
Trinity Primary School along with St John's Primary in Riverstone thought outside the box when it came to Catholic Schools Week this year. These celebrations were ‘food for thought’ for both of these outstanding Catholic Education Diocese of Parramatta learning communities.
Each school set out to show everyone their amazing learning spaces and highlight their sense of community with some fun and educational activities.
St John’s Primary focused on helping the less fortunate by raising funds for Caritas Australia.
St John’s Primary Assistant Principal Jackie Willard said students carried buckets of water in solidarity with those who need to carry water just to survive.
"The students could taste this food and all money raised went to Caritas. Our parents were then invited to open classrooms."
"It was a fabulous couple of days with fantastic community participation.’
Here at Trinity Primary School, we had lots of fun with our ‘Pop Up’ learning activities each morning.
Trinity Primary Principal Cathy Hey said they began the week with teachers sharing their favourite picture books.
"On Tuesday the children arrived at school to see a makerspace pop up and a water painting pop up,’’ Mrs Hey said.
"On Wednesday the children did some hands-on mathematics with a life-size carrot patch.’’
Overall both schools had a fantastic time celebrating Catholic Schools Week and their enthusiasm attracted a lot of positive community engagement.
24 Nov 2022and that's a wrap! #Kindy2023 second orientation was so much fun, the students visited the school office and engaged in kindy preparation activities, listened to their teacher read the ‘Grandpa Grandpa’ story, and coloured in their fish, counting how many they caught.

Can you help Trinity's Tiny Tribe? In the spirit of reduce, reuse and recycle we would like to reach out to our families to see if we can build our collection of toys. We are looking for dolls, prams, cars, car ramps or anything else you feel would be well loved by the tiniest members of Trinity. Of course we ask that all donations are in good play condition. DROP OFF FRIDAY 19th NOVEMBER to the front office. (Please do not drop off earlier due to storage availability) Thank you
