College gets set to party

THIS year marks the milestone achievement of Trinity College reaching 25 years.

To help celebrate this momentous a number of exciting events have been planned for August 14.

A fun fete kicks off the excitement from noon to 4pm.

There will be rides from Gladstone Amusements as well as food stalls, plants, cakes, craft, show bags, and so much more for the community to enjoy.

The official library opening and ribbon cutting ceremony will start at 3.30pm with guests, local Federal Member for Flynn, Chris Trevor, and local state member, Liz Cunningham.

A celebratory dinner is being held that evening, past students, staff and parents are warmly invited to go along and help celebrate the 25 years together.

Tickets are $40 per head and are available at the school office or by phoning 4979 1854. Seats are limited.

Trinity College students eagerly awaited the opening of their new library and thanks to the hard work of library aide, Catherine Walker and volunteers, students were able to begin to use the new library at the beginning of Term 3.

“It was a huge job to pack all the books, then move them and the shelving units and other furniture to the new building,” Mrs Walker said.

“Then came the equally huge task of re-assembling the shelving and unpacking all the boxes of books and resources.

It would not have happened if it hadn’t been for the generous amounts of time that parents and other staff gave over the holidays to help make it happen,” she said.

The new facility has been purpose-built to the school’s requirements with quiet reading areas indoors and outside, a multi-media room, study and work areas.
