2 Welcome to Term Four and the last term for 2014! (Where has the year gone!?!?) I trust you have had a refreshing and restful break with your children, who are very excited to be back at school! I extend a very warm welcome to our new students and families who are joining us this term and pray they are blessed as they settle in to our Living, Learning, Community culture of Trinity College. The first week is always a time of anticipation as we set ourselves goals for the term ahead. The final term of the year provides a range of social, sporting, cultural and academic opportunities and we invite you to be part of the many events planned across the term. We will host a number of annual events; our Twilight Swimming Carnival, Awards Night, 2015 Orientation Morning, Year 10 Dinner, Year 6 Camp, and for the first time ever our Year 12 Formal. The dates and details for these events will be outlined in the newsletter and we welcome your support of and participation in these College community events. One of our key events this term will be a Parent Evening with guest speaker, Michelle Mitchell from Youth Excel. Michelle speaks on current youth issues; Youth Sexuality, Puberty and Social Media and has been featured on The Today Show and Today Tonight. We are thrilled to be able to bring her to Gladstone. Further details about this great opportunity are featured in this newsletter. We look forward to this monumental term and encourage you to be involved where you can in the activities planned for Term Four. Have a very blessed week!
