This past week Trinityhouse High School Little Falls held its annual Talent Show in the theme, “In a world where you can be anything, be yourself.” Our pupils put on a masterpiece production that showcased talents in music, acting and dance. What a night to remember! From the well known talents of years past performing, to new students that came out of the woodwork to show us their new talents, the audience sat captivated by the performances of the evening. One of the most notable observations was the fact that some students used their performance to address social issues from bullying to escaping abuse and standing up for those hopeless. At the end all the talent culminated to the finalists and the top three awards. In third place there was tie with Dylan van der Merwe and Robyn de Villiers who performed a piano and vocal piece called “Love in the Dark” and Kabelo Moalusi who did hip hop dance and breakdancing. Second place was awarded to Sean Steyn who did a karate routine with ballerina Lisa Smith. What a fiercely elegant performance! The first place award went to Avela who vocally smashed Whitney Houston’s hit “I have nothing”. Avela Fongoqa was pitch perfect, hitting every note and doing a flawless rendition of a vocally challenging song.

A special thanks to all the hard work put in by the pupils and to the show coordinators Johanna Klopper and Joanne Brett for their tireless work that made the show the success it was! We are so blessed with the talent God has given us, to Him be the glory always!
Trinityhouse High School Little Falls Lets Their Talent Shine
When people think Trinityhouse Preparatory School, Little Falls what normally comes to mind? Is it our beautiful campus nested in the mountains of Little Falls Nature Reserve? It is our highly qualified team of staff members that sacrifice so much to produce world-class academic achievers? It is our sports programmes that breed compassionate pupils that embrace our ethos even on the fields and show true sportsmanship? Is it our arts and cultural programmes, which catches the attention of some of the most prestigious schools and universities? Is it the languages that we are taught or the diversity of our pupils that echoes the voice of many nations, under ONE GOD? Is it our amazing facilities that include our new GO LAB where children explore robotics and do 3D printing? Is it the extra mural activities that continually highlight the creativity and passion of our students to excel? Is it the servant nature we embrace or selflessness in giving to those less fortunate? Whilst all of the above are absolutely true and make Trinityhouse Preparatory School Little Falls unique, it is the deep embedded thread of our Christian Ethos that holds everything we do, together. With God in every part of our lives, it is so easy to stand out from other campuses. So many keep that thread hidden, but in everything we are and all we do, we credit to the hand of God working for us. That is why we are not afraid to “STAND UP” and “STAND OUT”. So many are ashamed, so many hide the light of our Lord afraid, and many casually believe on paper only, but we at Trinityhouse Preparatory School are not afraid of who we are and what we stand for. This is why our treasure is our Christian ethos and God’s word, which guides every day and brings blessing and anointing to everything we do on a daily basis.
Trinityhouse Preparatory School Little Falls recently celebrated our birthday! The Preparatory school is going into its seventh year although our amazing building is six years old! The Preparatory School held a special birthday assembly where the pupils took a trip back in time and saw the stages of growth from where the campus began as a couple children in small classes to the miraculous group of pupils we have today. The Preparatory School Principal, Mrs. Karen Cammell made a special slideshow of the pictures and stories from the beginning days. We were so overwhelmed to hear the stories of how our very steps have prayers cemented into them and how the concrete foundations have bible verses on them. Mrs. Cammell talked about how God is a work on our campus and how the staff pray so hard for God’s blessing upon everything Trinityhouse does. Deputy Principal of the Foundation Phase, Mrs. Kassandra Strydom did a devotion and prayer, something we proudly do everyday! After that, we had so much fun eating the yummy Trinityhouse cake! A special thanks to Ruimsig Spar for supplying our yummy birthday cake! Overall, we had a fantastic birthday- here’s to many more fruitful and blessed years at Trinityhouse Little Falls!

One of the most anticipated events of the year at Trinityhouse Preparatory School Little Falls is the Father & Child Campout. Every year, the Preparatory School clears its Kingspark field and dads come with their children and spend the night on the fields in their tents or campers as a campout. During the event our dads braai or share a picnic dinner and enjoy their children’s company as they spend quality time chatting, playing games and sports, taking walks around the campus and catching up with their friends. After the sunsets on our beautiful campus, you can see the glow of the tents and peaceful silence as our little ones sleep. In the morning, our dads enjoy breakfast with their little ones from our Café Flava and go home after a fun evening enjoyed together. We recently had our Father & Child Campout and yet again it was a fun and exciting way to spend quality time with our dads.
We recently held our first official function in our beautiful new hall. The function was the Grade 8 Induction Ceremony. The emphasis of the evening is to the welcome the Grade 8 pupils to our school family. This annual ceremony is monumental for Trinityhouse High School Little Falls because it aims to inculcate the servant leadership that we encourage among our pupils. The Grade 8 classes this year have really blended in well and have become quite involved in contributing to the various activities and sports on offer at Trinityhouse High School Little Falls.
In February, Trinityhouse High School Little Falls was blessed with a new gathering space. We are calling this space our Hall, but it is so much more than that. Built in the style of a Basilica, with a towering central knave and beautiful columns separating it from two colonnades, our Hall is a place of worship. We gather here each morning to start our day by praising God as a school family. Natural light filters in from the high windows and the acoustics as we sing our school hymn, or cheer for our school with warcries, are spectacular. It is also special for us as it is a symbol of our growth as a school. We have been blessed with increasing numbers and it is a privilege to gather with our growing family in this much larger space each day. We know that our Hall will play such an important role in the future of our school. Our Christian ethos is at the centre of our identity as an academic institution and we praise God for the many successes He has granted us so far this year and for this new space in which we can gather in His name.
Matthew 18:20 – “For where two or three gather in my name, there am I with them.”
It might be drawing towards the end of athletics season but that sure hasn’t stopped Trinityhouse Preparatory School from producing some new superstars in their atheltics programme. This year Trinityhouse Preparatory School Little implented long jump, shotput and high jump into their atheltics which has come with great anticipation and excitement from our up and coming athletes. Recently, we held an Inter-house Athletics meet and there was some amazing results that came forth. Some of our pupils had never done some of these events and excelled immensely in them. We look forward to finishing strong in the atheltics arena and to keep pressing on for success next time.
