2021 was full of joy, hope and challenges, as a community we have achieved so much. Without your enthusiasm, participation, generosity, and heart-felt words, 2021 would not have been successful. Personally for me, I feel blessed to be moving into 2022 having secured my Principalship at Trinity. I continually mention 'How much I love Trinity', however it is the caring community that I'm drawn to. At the Year 6 graduation my final words were 'Hold onto your hats, because 2022 is going to be bigger and better than 2021'!

Yours in knowing, loving and serving,
Farewell to our Year 6 Students
Last Friday we celebrated our Year 6 Graduation Mass at St. Mary’s church, followed by a supper prepared and served by Year 5 parents at Jackson's Bakery. It was a wonderful night and we wish Riley, Tom, Archie, Angus, Talia, Jaslyn, Sammy, Willow, Jemima, Cheyanne all the very best in their next chapter in life. We pray that they may take away with them fond memories of shared experiences that Trinity has given them and the bond of true friendships that will last forever. We are so incredibly proud of them and their achievements!
Message from Miss Wade:
Our unofficial motto throughout the year has been “the glass is always half full.” There are many times we may come to a bridge we feel we cannot cross but there are always opportunities if you approach it with positivity.
This theme has encouraged us to work through the difficult times with a high degree of success in good, positive spirits. I feel confident our Year 6 graduates are leaving with a positive mindset to move forward with success.
Our graduates have reached a milestone in education and personal development with many more to come. Many highlights have been reached in areas of academia, artistic development, creative prowess and in exceptional sporting achievements. I'd like to wish them all the best, I am extremely proud and am blessed to be their 2021 teacher.
It was lovely seeing all our families come together last Tuesday night and celebrate our achievements for 2021.

Last Wednesday, K/1/2 went on an excursion to Junee. We visited the Junee Liquorice and Chocolate Factory first, and had lunch in their beautiful grounds. Then we headed top the Railway Museum for a guided tour of their historic trains. On our way home, we stopped at Jubilee Park in Coota for a Nerf Gun War! It was such a great day - a very special way to end the year together!
