Trin­ity Se­nior Class: From Grand Tour Of Europe To Fi­nal The­sis

MidWeek Islander (Windward Oahu) - - Windward Oahu Islander -

At Trin­ity Chris­tian School, the se­niors con­clude their clas­si­cal study of world his­tory by check­ing out the high­lights for them­selves — by go­ing there. Keep­ing with tra­di­tion, the 12-mem­ber Class of 2014 trav­eled to Europe last fall to visit the high and low points of Western cul­ture.

They started at the be­gin­ning in Pom­peii, Italy (see photo), mov­ing on to Athens, Rome, Florence, Paris and Nor­mandy, vis­it­ing many ceme­ter­ies along the way that tes­ti­fied to the cost­li­ness of war.

The stu­dents also are chal­lenged to com­plete a se­nior the­sis on a “schol­arly, con­tro­ver­sial sub­ject” of their choice, which will be tested this week by a panel of judges school.

Stand­ing up to speak on their re­search and then an­swer ques­tions will be Nalani Meinken, Ethan McGuire, Bobby Treakle, Mary Tra­hey, Al­lie Mu­rakami, Ti­mothy Metcalf, Gabriel Ar­ney, Jes­sica Wil­liams, Zoe Wilks, Shaun Kanoho, Amaris Capen and Jennifer Ja­cob­sen. Their topics range from sex ed­u­ca­tion and tor­ture in Amer­ica to abol­ish­ing the IRS and dig­i­tal bul­ly­ing.
