Holy Trinity Primary Granville

Term 4 Week 5 - 15th November 2019

From the Leadership Team

Jason Fisher | Assistant Principal

Dear Parents and Friends,

At the beginning of each year all students in Year 1 to Year 6 sit a Mathematical Assessment Interview (MAI). In the past this has been done during class time, which is quite disruptive as teachers are released from class to conduct the MAI. 

Next year (2020) the process is going to change to minimise class disruptions. January 28 and January 29 next year will be Staff Development Days and the interviews will take place during these times. In the coming weeks a note will be sent home and  parents will be asked to book an interview time. The process will be similar to the Parent/Teacher Interviews. 

This is an important assessment as it provides teachers with valuable information about the students Numeracy skills so appropriate tasks can be developed.

HTG Talks

Last Friday we held our second annual HTG Talks. All the speakers delivered outstanding speeches. It was very pleasing to see the students choosing topics such as deforestation, the importance of eating vegetables, School swimming lessons should be compulsory, etc which tackle important issues. We also heard children from each learning space talk about their year in review. Congratulations to all the speakers involved and thank you to the parents who attended.


We wish all the Year 6 students a safe and exciting trip to Canberra next week. The schedule is full,  visiting Parliament House, The Australian War Memorial, The Australian Institute of Sport, The Australian Electoral Commission and Questacon.

Kinder 2020

The journey for our kindergarten students of 2020 started this week. We held a parent information night on Wednesday night, and the first orientation morning for the students today (Friday). The second orientation for the students will be held on Friday morning next week. Enrolments are still open so if you know anyone who is looking for a kindergarten placement please direct them to the office for further information.

Weekly Attendance

The weekly attendance for the week ending the 8th November 2019 is 96%.

Religious Education Co-Ordinator | Mark Galea

The readings from this week’s mass have a common theme of endurance and perseverance. Jesus had conviction that spurred him on to persevere, supported by the strong belief that he was doing God’s work and had divine backing. Belief in a project or course of action along with trust in God’s backing can raise us up to be more than we can be. We are enough; we have what it takes to ‘get on with it and finish the job.’

At Holy Trinity we instill this sense of perseverance in our students. They understand that success can sometimes require many attempts or a new perspective.

Prayer for Drought

Bishop Vincent has urged that during November we pray for communities affected by drought. Each morning our school has added this short prayer to our morning assembly. Perhaps you could add this to your daily prayers.

        Dear Lord,

        We pray for those who are currently affected by severe drought. Please bring abundant rain to the parched land to replenish water supplies. May the

        farmers and all of those people connected to the land have some respite from their distress. May rivers once again flow with precious water returning

        prosperity and vitality to the land.

        At this time we also ask you to protect people from bushfires. To those who have lost loved ones and homes we ask that you console them in their grief.

        To those who face danger today, we ask that you keep them safe.

        We ask this through Christ our Lord, Amen.

On Thursday the 7th of November 2019, Stage 3 organised a sports day for Kindergarten, Year One and Year Two. Stage 3 split Kindy, Year One and Year Two into groups and they played soccer, dodgeball, pacman, basketball, an obstacle course, parachutes, bullrush and more.  During the afternoon the students had a lot of fun and there was a lot of screaming and laughing. 

The Stage 3 students would like to thank every family that brought in a donation for the House of  Welcome, they really appreciated the help as they were running low on supplies. We hope your children had a fun time and enjoyed themselves.

If your child turns 5 by 31st July 2020, they should enrol for school for next year. Please collect an enrolment package from the school office and return the completed forms with all the required documentation now.
