We are very proud of all that you are doing whilst not in school, and we want you to be proud of yourselves too. So please share with us any of the things you are doing that make a difference- it could be schoolwork, or practical skills that you’re learning, or how you are helping around the school or in your neighbourhood.
Please share examples and your stories with me via email – mry@trinity.cumbria.sch.uk. I look forward to spending each Monday praising both students and staff and the sweet treats you would normally receive will instead be donated to our key workers at the Cumberland infirmary.

This year marks the 75th anniversary of VE Day and, to mark the occasion, the traditional May bank holiday Monday was to be moved to Friday 8th May.  Many celebratory events had been planned across the country which have now, sadly, had to be cancelled.

So, in order to mark the occasion we are suggesting that you and your family might like to still be involved and plan your own “stay-at-home street party”

Carlisle Diocese VE Day Challenge

The May Day Bank Holiday was moved in order that we might mark the 75th Anniversary of VE Day. Sadly, the coronavirus emergency means that most events must be cancelled or postponed. But, since when did that stop us finding new and inventive ways to have fun and hang on to hope? We can’t wait to see the many and varied ways in which you will be celebrating the day: WWII songs or cooking; homemade bunting and decorations; pictures and messages; projects or family history; virtual afternoon tea parties … the possibilities are limitless…..

Paper Aeroplane Challenge: We’re inviting schools to decorate a paper aeroplane to pass on to fellow schools in Cumbria. A video will start a paper aeroplane, inscribed with a message of Hope and will see how far that message can travel across the county. The last Headteacher to receive the plane will then read the message. At the end of the video we will encourage children to make and decorate their own paper aeroplane with their own message.

Pet Sounds- Beach Boys

A classic from the 60s! Written to rival the Beatles’ Revolver album. This album showcased writer Brian Wilson’s genius. It is my friend Bestie’s favourite album. The stand out track for me is God Only Knows. It was used in the final scene in Love Actually. Always brings a tear!
