Easter Celebrations at Trinity!
Trinity’s school theme this year is, “How do we as the face of Christ create a hospitable learning community?” Our Easter celebrations reflected this theme with a play depicting Jesus living out the greater hospitality of God through the washing of the feet, his death, resurrection and then appearance to his disciples on the way to Emmaus. The Year 5 students volunteered their time and talents to present Jesus’ story to us, and reminded us that Easter is a time to give thanks to God for God’s great love for us and in turn, we can be the face of Christ by bringing God’s joy to others.
On Ash Wednesday, each class was given a plant to nurture in their classroom throughout Lent. It was symbolic of the grace given to us by God, that when nurtured through good works and positive behaviours, grows and spreads beauty in the world. The plants were placed around the resurrection tomb in our Easter play as a sign of that growing grace. They will now be planted in the school grounds as a reminder to us that at Trinity, we always try to love and show hospitality to others, and when we do so , God’s grace will shine forth.
On the final Friday of term, Trinity undertook its second annual Caritas Lenten Lapathon as its form of almsgiving during Lent. We thank the Trinity school community for their amazing spirit of generosity, hospitality and community!
As we raised a total of $5617.00 to assist Caritas in ending poverty, promoting justice and upholding the dignity of people all around the world.
After investigating the various Project Compassion initiatives, the student representatives decided they would like the money to be distributed accordingly:
• $2000.00 for a healing workshop in a remote Aboriginal community in Australia.
• $1000.00 for the purchase of bikes for children in Cambodia to ride so that they can get to school.
• $510.00 for 51 families to get a water filter so they are not exposed to waterborne diseases.
• $1050.00 for 205 children in Mozambique to buy chickens, breed them, then sell their eggs to raise money to go to school.
• $500.00 to purchase carpentry tools and materials to build homes in Mozambique.
• $500.00 for 100 people in Papua New Guinea to be trained in marketing.
• $60.00 for two people in Papua New Guinea to receive work skills training.
Our Trinity school community is proud to be instilling in Trinity students, a sense of social justice, concern for others and an awareness of being the face of Christ for others! We have truly made a difference in the lives of many people all around the world and followed in Jesus’ footsteps.
