Spe­cial to The News “Our Fal­cons ex­celled both aca­dem­i­cally and in the ex­tra-cur­ric­u­lar ac­tiv­i­ties they have par­tic­i­pated in this school year,” says Re­nee Ro­zon when asked to re­flect on Holy Trin­ity’s 2015-16 school year. “Our amaz­ing school spirit and sup­port and sup­port for one an­other is part of what makes us a fam­ily.”

It was a great year for the arts as Holy Trin­ity’s mu­si­cal was none other than the Dis­ney clas­sic, Beauty and the Beast. The school also hosted the Sears Dis­trict Drama Fes­ti­val, where they en­tered three plays, one of which went on to win at that level. Also their stu­dents won six in­di­vid­ual awards at the dis­trict level, they then moved on to Ot­tawa and won five in­di­vid­ual awards at the East­ern Re­gional Level.

-Sports: In sports the Fal­cons had a suc­cess­ful year start­ing off with the se­nior boys’ vol­ley­ball and bas­ket­ball teams, as well as the ju­nior girls’ bas­ket­ball team, win­ning the SD&G cham­pi­onship.

The school also won cham­pi­onships in mixed curling and ju­nior girls cross coun­try.

But the big suc­cess came with the gym­nas­tic team win­ning the EOSSA cham­pi­onship then go­ing on to com­pete in the OFSAA where they won team sil­ver level 4, sil­ver un­even bar, team gold level 5, and bronze in vault.

-So­cial: The Fal­cons con­tinue to show school spirit through many events such as the Fal­con Friend-zee and pep ral­lies. The stu­dents even demon­strated many forms of lead­er­ship with events such as the Bea­con of Faith, in which se­nior school stu­dents led in­spi­ra­tional work­shops for Grade 5 stu­dents from their feeder schools. There was also Char­ity Week which in­cluded ac­tiv­i­ties to sup­port Be­yond 21 and their Cheese for Change fundrais­ers to sup­port their spon­sor child and oth­ers in the third world coun­tries.
