Gawler River Do it For Dolly

May 23, 2019

Dolly’s Dream is an organisation set up in memory of Amy ‘Dolly’ Everett, aged 14, who took her own life after an extended period of bullying. Dolly's Dream aims to empower and educate our community to prevent bullying and cyberbullying. This year Stevens House at Gawler River embraced Dolly’s Dream as their chosen charity and has worked to raise funds and awareness of the serious effects of bullying.

During the inaugural Do it for Dolly Day on Friday 10 May, Junior School classes and all Houses at Gawler River recognised this day through discussing the importance of being kind to one another, embracing kindness stickers and valuing Be Kind bookmarks. Also during the day, to commemorate and celebrate the life of Dolly Everett, staff and students also made a bold statement about bullying by forming the shape of a butterfly to signify a time of change. United they stood in support of Dolly and sent a strong community message that bullying does not belong.

"We will continue to raise awareness and educate about the impact of bullying and build and strengthen the support we provide our students. We aim to extend the Dolly’s Dream message within the community to voice a stance on bullying." - Mrs Shannon Caire, Head of Stevens House, Trinity Gawler River

Relay for Life

May 01, 2019

In April a group of our Year 11 and 12 Leaders and Prefects, as well as a representation from our Health faculty, participated in the local Gawler Relay for Life at Princess Park.

Conditions throughout the day were perfect until late evening/early morning when rainfall settled in. While the conditions students were walking in were not ideal, these temporary conditions were nothing compared to the journey many have to go through in fighting cancer and it was impressive that all groups continued to push through the evening to complete the relay.

Our students were well assisted by staff members Aaron Whenan, Will Houtman and Danielle Matthews. At this stage, group has raised over $1825.00 for this charity.

Trinity Girls Claim Third State Cricket Title

May 01, 2019

The Open Girls Cricket Team has continued its state dominance with a 91-run victory over Adelaide High in the state final.

This is the third state title in a row for the girls who have yet to be truly tested in the knockout competition. The team made an imposing 174 from their 20 overs and bowled superbly to contain Adelaide High to 8/83. Add this to the two Year 8/9 state titles in the last couple of years and Trinity is a perfect five from five in girls cricket state titles. A remarkable feat. Congratulations to all members of the team.
