    A New Pope
O     n 2 April our Holy Father,
      Pope John Paul II died after an
heroic struggle with years of ill
health. Although the Church in
Rome with all of its pomp and
pageantry can sometimes seem
remote and irrelevant to Australian
school boys, Pope John Paul II
somehow had a way of
“connecting” with youth throughout
the world. So it was with genuine
sadness that our whole school
community celebrated a special
Mass of Thanksgiving for John Paul’s
great example of love and faithful
service to the world. He gave us an
example of a man who held true to
all that he believed. For him, Jesus                               Gerard Colreavy and Davide Tassone

In the last week of July, Xuan Ji and I
 were fortunate to be given the
opportunity to attend the International
Space School (ISS) held in Houston,
Texas. We were proud to be the
Australian representatives among the
thirty-six students selected from twenty
different countries around the world.
The objective of the ISS is to expose
students to some of the work done by
the National Aeronautics and Space
Administration (NASA), encourage
interest in space science related fields
and to plan a manned mission to Mars.

    Our vision is to be the leader in boys’

Trinity College is a Catholic School for boys in
            the Edmund Rice tradition.

 Our mission is to enable each of our students
  to realise his spiritual, academic, social,
 cultural and sporting potential, and to assist
       him to become a man for others.

We foster a personal spirituality and an active
 Catholic faith in all members of the Trinity

 We are a friendly and inclusive school. We
 value each individual member and welcome
                 all families.

 We encourage our students to be young men
  of integrity, who realise their potential, and
                strive for excellence.

    We foster service of others by way of
  educational experiences that are based on
           justice and compassion.

  We encourage students, staff and families to
reflect on the contemporary world in the light of
    the Gospel as the basis for individual and
                community growth.
