Trinityhouse Palm Lakes Preparatory Newsletter
Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge High School took part in the 6th annual Woodlands Junior Masters Championship at Serengeti Golf and Wildlife Estate. This season marks our best since 2014, as we were crowned the champions of the tournament on Tuesday, 09 May 2017.
The top 30 players had the privilege of a Sunshine Tour Professional joining each of their fourballs for the final round. Reece Haikney, Luka Stanisavljevic and Shaun Jones all gave their professional a serious run-for-their-money. These professionals are currently on tour on the various circuits, locally and internationally. Although Shaun Jones finished tied 2nd (5 shots off of the lead), Luka Stanisavljevic finished tied 6th (8 shots off of the lead) and Byron Anley finished 3rd in the B-Division, the overall team performance over 54-holes was so exceptional that we streaked away at the end beating opposition of the highest calibre
The team has one last opportunity to qualify for the National School Tournament on 25 June 2017 by winning at the Royal Johannesburg West Course. We wish them the best of luck and are already bursting with pride at these achievements.
On 19 May 2017 we had the privilege of having ”Wild and Earthly visiting us. They came to show and teach us about some interesting animals.
Our children loved every second of it! They met lots of new animals and learned some interesting facts about them. We also learned how to help
animals that are in danger. We all became Wild Rangers for life!
It is vitally important to us that our Grade 8 pupils become part of the Trinityhouse family at the very beginning of their Grade 8 year. In order to assist with the transition from Primary to High School, they attend two functions at our school during their Grade 7 year. The aim of both of these is not only to introduce them to the school culture and traditions which we are extremely proud of but also to introduce them to each other.
At the beginning of the Grade 8 year, the children are taken on a four-day camp with the aim of assisting them to bond as a group – the future Wolves of 2021.
The Grade 8 camp is run by Project Summit- a company specializing in leadership and teamwork courses and each year, our pupils are really strengthened by the activities which the facilitators run. The children have an enormous amount of fun on the tranquil Sediba Kwele Game Farm and Camp venue.
Smiles were evident on the faces of all the children and the four days were enjoyed by all.
