Outdoor Classroom Day

Trinityhouse Pre-primary Randpark Ridge took part in the Outdoor Classroom Day on Thursday, 12 October. This is a global campaign to celebrate and inspire outdoor learning and play. Teachers planned lessons and fun activities for the children to enjoy a day of learning outdoors. Painting, building, water play and obstacle courses were all part of the learning activities for the day. Outdoor learning improves children’s health, engages them with learning and leads to a greater connection with nature. Play not only teaches critical life skills such as resilience, teamwork and creativity but is central to children’s enjoyment of childhood. The children had a wonderful time spending time outside doing some of the things they love.

Trinityhouse’s Little Chefs Make-a-burger!

Trinityhouse Little Falls always goes out of its way to make learning fun! Many times it’s those extraordinary creative lessons that children never forget. This last week as a part of the Grade 000 and 00 class theme of “Bread”, the whole school put on their chef’s hats and were treated to a fun Make-a-burger day. Each child was given their own yummy burger and got to put their favourite toppings and sauces on all by themselves. While making the burgers was indeed fun, the best part was definitely eating their little creations. Moms, watch out for our little budding chefs next time you make burgers at home as they can make a masterpiece of a home favourite!

Academics to the Next Level- Top Achiever’s Awards

Trinityhouse Little Falls Preparatory School held an awards ceremony for their top academic achievers in the Senior Intersen Phase (Grades 4-7). Students who received over 80% were awarded and well as our top 10 Achievers who achieved over 90% in academics this term. Well done to our pupils for all their  hard work. A special thanks to our parents and teachers who go the extra mile to bring our pupils to the next level.

Midnight Feast- a yummy start to the term

To start off the term and end off this week’s theme of day and night, each class had their own “Midnight Feast”. Each child was allowed to come to school in their favourite pyjamas and bring a picnic “feast” and favourite blanket. The blankets were spread out and the kids enjoyed their own little feast in their classroom with their picnic munchies. The kids were so excited for this day and enjoyed themselves. What a great way to begin this exciting third term!

Back to School

Term Three has got off to an exciting start. Our pupils and staff have rested well and are ready to tackle all that this term holds with vigour and courage. The excitement was palpable amongst our children as they interacted with their friends. The pupils can expect to gain in their skill levels in and outside the classroom. This term we celebrate our school`s twentieth year of existence with a week of song and music as the three schools combine to entertain our parents with the “Roots and Wing” performance. Tickets to this event are selling out quickly. We also welcome Spring and start out pre-season for the various Summer sport activities. The term will end with the annual Grade Seven Spring Market Day. The term is sure to bring new experiences, enhance teamwork, extend creativity and develop new skills.
