Year 10 Work Experience

It was fascinating to sit in on the recent debrief sessions for Year 10 Work Experience. The feedback from employers on student preparation, attitude and enthusiasm was outstanding and continues to reinforce the positive culture we continually aim for at Trinity Anglican School.

Some of the student experiences were really interesting – you can read about Finn  Russell at the Young Company Theatre Group (see http://www.theyoungcompany.com.au/work-experience.html

Year 11 student Ellie Maccoll also undertook work experience at WIN TV and ended up having one of her news stories appear on the nightly news! Amazing. You can watch it here: https://www.facebook.com/WINNewsCairns/videos/1489723497761246/

My thanks to Ms Chant for leading the work experience program and for the staff who visited students on site.

Planting trees at Kewarra Beach

What a lovely morning at Kewarra Beach on Wednesday with Dani from Bunnings and a bunch of enthusiastic KBJ Kindy tree planters. Our Kindy kids dug holes, prepared the earth and planted some young saplings to improve their environment. Luckily they gave plenty of advice on how to do it properly to their horticulturally-challenged principal.

Science Week

Science Week has been a big success yet again. I was able to visit the WRJ program on Wednesday and saw way too many kids having way too much fun with Science. What a wonderful opportunity for our students to experience real science. My thanks to Ms Osmond and the terrific teachers and parents involved.
