Holy Trinity Primary Granville

Term 1 Week 10 - 1st April 2021

From the Leadership Team

Philip Mahony | Principal

Dear Parents and Carers,

 As we end the first Term for this  year, it is important as a Catholic School, to reflect on the events of Holy Week and prepare for Easter Sunday. The students have been celebrating these important events over the past week and have been prayerful in their presentations.

The Sacred Tridiuum

A "Triduum" is a three-day period (the word comes from the Latin - tres Dies). The Easter Triduum is a three-day period in which Christians celebrate what Easter means to them. Is it the pinnacle of the liturgical year. These three days are three days of mystery.The Easter Triduum is when we remember the death and resurrection of Jesus. These days call to mind the last meal and arrest of Jesus (Thursday evening), the crucifixion and burial of Jesus (Good Friday), and the resurrection of Jesus (Easter Day).

While you attend the services over Holy Thursday, Good Friday and Easter Sunday, explain to your children the meaning of each event. When they are enjoying their Easter Eggs also stress with them the eggs mean New Life in the risen Lord for all of us.

School Uniforms

The students need to be in their Full Winter Uniform by Monday 10th May. During the first three weeks of term 2 they can wear their summer or winter uniform, depending on the weather.

Student of the Week Assemblies

We will go back to announcing the 'Student of the Week' on Friday afternoons at 3:00 pm, so parents can attend. Hopefully we can still zoom the assembly for parents who can not be at the school.

Have a happy and Holy Easter.

Today is the last day for term 1.

Term 2 resumes on Monday 19th April.

Warm regards

Phil Mahony

Jason Fisher | Assistant Principal

Enjoying the Holidays

As we move into the holidays after a very busy term, it is a great opportunity for the children to rest up and get ready for Term 2. During the school term the children are set to a routine, so the holidays provide an opportunity to relax the routines, so the children are able to refresh. However, it is important for the children to keep practicing their skills in a fun and interesting way. Parents can provide opportunities such as; going to the library to borrow books to read, involve the children in cooking dinner and get them to measure the ingredients, check the local newspaper for free activities the children can attend and write a family journal of the holidays. Keeping the children learning in an authentic way will help the children return to school ready for Term Two.

I wish the whole Holy Trinity Community a very Holy and Safe Easter filled with the love of family and friends. See you all next term.

Religious Education News

Today, the staff and students of Holy Trinity took part in a reflective journey with Jesus. The Stage 3 students narrated and re-enacted the events of Holy Week while students witnessed and walked with Jesus. Our first station was the celebration of Jesus’ triumphant entry into Jerusalem (Palm Sunday) followed by our reflection of Holy Thursday; Jesus washing the feet of the disciples, breaking bread at the Last Supper and praying in the Garden of Gethsemane. Next, students looked on as Jesus took up His cross and walked to His Crucifixion and death. Finally, students arrived at the tomb of Jesus and were witnesses to the Resurrection of Christ (Easter Sunday). 

The Stage 3 students are highly commended on their performances and reverence.  

We wish all of the students, their families and our Holy Trinity Community a blessed Easter and a safe and wonderful holiday. Thank you for your continued support this term and we look forward to seeing you in Term 2.
