2018 Foundation Frocks & Fascinators Luncheon
The Trinity Foundation hosted the second Frocks & Fascinators Luncheon in the Pavilion on Tuesday 6 November. The fundraising event attracted 60 guests who all embraced the Melbourne Cup theme. Catering and service for the lunch was provided by Year 10 North Semester 2 Catering students and the menu featured produce from the College farm, North Kitchen Garden and Plant Grow Garden. With raffle prizes and a few sweeps for entertainment, our guests loved the opportunity to see our students in action preparing a three course meal.
The students excelled at being chefs, kitchen crew and waiting staff. They greeted guests with a warm smile and no dietary request was too difficult for them to handle. Another highlight of the afternoon was a fashion parade of gowns worn by Year 11 students at the recent annual Presentation Ball. With such a festive atmosphere, our visitors were very keen to stay and enjoy more of the Trinity hospitality. Well done to these students who helped raise monies for the Foundation Scholarship Program.
The Trinity College Foundation offers a number of scholarships to students both internally and externally. Visit the Scholarships webpage for further information and application forms.
Certificate of Academic Merit
The Certificate of Academic Merit is presented to students who make significant improvement in academic areas. The award is designed to recognise and promote academic achievement and is intended to complement other forms of recognition by acknowledging students who might not otherwise be recognised. A total of 16 certificates are presented in Term 3 annually across the College Middle Schools. Each recipient also receives a commemorative book.
2018 Operation Flinders
The Foundation supports Trinity College students to attend Operation Flinders a is a South Australian based charitable organisation that runs a world leading wilderness adventure program for young offenders. The program takes participants between the age of 14 and 18 years on an eight day exercise in the far northern Flinders Ranges, providing an opportunity for its participants to break away from their past and grow as valued members of the community.
Foundation Citizenship Medal
Each year the Foundation presents Citizenship Awards to students from all five schools for their overall contribution to the College through personal dedication, strength of character and good citizenship. Recipients may have made outstanding contributions in academic effort and success, sporting contributions and participation, cultural and worship endeavour, House involvement and general leadership and community service outside the College.
