ExACT – Extension Activities and Groups at TAS

We were very excited to recently launch our ExACT program at Trinity Anglican School. This brings together the large range of extension activities available to our students into one overview and allows parents and students to discuss which opportunities that they would like to explore.

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.

 

Swimming Success

Great news to start the swim season. TAS Swimming are the 2017 Short Course Regional Champions (1st TAS 412, 2nd Stingrays 250, 3rd Saints 165). TAS Swimming also won the Relay Trophy. And, more importantly, TAS swimmers gave it their all and showed resilience, teamwork and sportsmanship.

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.
