The 2-page schedule is worth exploring and can be found here .The schedule will be updated each year and should be read in conjunction with the TAP (Tutoring Assistance Program) schedule available here.

Dancer Excels

Our congratulations to La Bella Carolan (Year 7) who has been selected to dance in London and Paris in 2018, as part of the Centre Stage Dance Studios Senior Dance Program. Even though she is dancing two levels higher than her age, La Bella was chosen to study to at 3 different dance schools in London:

  • Pineapple Studios – London. This will focus on hip hop, jazz and contemporary (5 days);
  • ‘The Palace’ – London. This will focuses primarily on contemporary, classical ballet (both Belle’s favourites, 5 days); and
  • London Studio Centre. This focuses on theatre and business studies, and within that, the focus is choreography, repertoire, history, contemporary, drama, jazz, musical theatre, pas de deux and singing (5 days).

We wish her all the best.

Arts Success

It was terrific to attend the Receive>Respond Exhibition at Crate59 – Billy’s Coffee in 59 Sheridan Street where a number of our senior Trinity Anglican School artists had their works displayed as part of this initiative. Congratulations to Emily Hand, Claudia Philp, Victoria Phipps, Anvita Sarkar, Madeleine Payne and Ashleigh Slattery. My thanks to Ms Leanne Shead – the standard of our student art work is quite remarkable.
