67 Minutes for Mandela Day

Trinityhouse Preparatory and High School Randpark Ridge took part in their annual 67 Minutes Mandela Day initiatives. The Preparatory School participated in a soup making initiative during which the pupils washed, peeled and grated various vegetables. Once grated and collected, the vegetables were taken home by a number of generous parents who cooked the vegetables into delicious soup. Sunbake donated 100 loaves of bread which were added to the 100 loaves donated by the school. During assembly on Friday, 28 July Trinityhouse Preparatory handed over 600 liters of vegetable soup and 200 loaves of bread to Kids Haven.

 

The High School supported Mandela Day by collecting lunch packs and beanies. The lunch packs were prepared by the students and packed during school. 1368 lunch packs and 633 beanies were donated to 17 different schools in Zandspruit, KyaSands, Cosmo City and Soweto. A number of teachers and students dropped off the items at the various schools and were welcomed by big smiles and many hugs.

 

It was great to see all the pupils, staff and parents supporting Mandela Day and getting involved in making a difference in the community.

Trinityhouse Randpark Ridge Golf Champions

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.

 

 

 

 

Ensuring that our Grade 8 pupils feel at home right from the start.

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.
