Letters of thank you to Australian soldiers
09 Nov 2017
As part of Year 6 writing this term we have been working on letter writing. We decided to give purpose to our work by writing letters to serving Australian Soldiers that will be away from home at Christmas.
We also found out about an initiative that Australia Post facilitates where you can send Care Packages overseas with treats for the soldiers.
We started a collection of items such as…. Candy Canes, lollies, toiletries, puzzle books, magazines, food items and card games.
Our goal was to fill two post boxes. One for a male soldier and one for a female soldier. Through many generous donations, we managed to fill a total of 7 boxes. 3 of those boxes were filled with toys and dog treats for our hard working, bomb sniffer dogs and their handlers.
Our hope and prayers are that our small actions will bring great joy, happiness and comfort to our men and women serving overseas, who are sacrificing such a lot to make a difference in this world.

Happy Fathers’ Day - The Trinity Community wishes you all a very Happy Father's Day. We offered this blessing at the Father's Day liturgy on Friday. Loving God, bless our Fathers, Grandfathers and all who are father figures in our lives, that they may be strengthened as Christian models of fatherhood. May their hearts be filled with generosity, kindness and compassion. Grant that we may honour them always with a deep abiding love and a spirit of profound respect. May they go forth knowing that they are valued and appreciated for they are and all they do. We ask this in Jesus’ name. Amen

A bronze medallist to Australia but a hero to us here at Trinity! Today we had Jayden Lawrence, a Commonwealth Games Bronze Medallist, and Evie’s dad visit us to talk about his bronze medal win in Birmingham and what it is like to be an Australian wrestler. Year 6 students asked Jayden insightful questions and Jayden was so kind to share his medal for all of us to see.
