Basketball WOW Day
On 1st October 2018 the school was visited by Paul Sturgess a former Harlem Globetrotter basketball player. Measuring 7 ft 8 inches he is the tallest professional basketball player in the world and currently in the Guinness book of records as Britain's tallest man. He was accompanied by his colleague Mark Waters who is also an athlete and a current PE teacher visiting different schools to talk about his love of sport.
The day began with an inspirational talk which included important issues such as having a growth mind set, making the most of your talents, healthy living, ant-bullying and sports for all. The pair had sessions with every class teaching them basketball skills and having exercise, fun and games.

I am very proud of the children of Holy Trinity-the way that they show determination, honesty, respect, passion, self belief and most importantly their teamwork. Our moto 'Be gracious when you win, try harder when you lose' is a testament to their drive and passion for sports. Well done to all our team!
Yours in sport,
Sports Day 2018
Records were broken, pulses were racing, determination was explosive!
This was such a successful Sports Day. Despite the heat and the dry field the children raced and competed with such passion and this made the day one to remember.
We started in our traditional Holy Trinity way with the Sports Leaders leading the children out with the Olympic torch. The children chanted their house names and wore their house colours with pride.After a lap of the field the Sports Day began!
We would like to thank the parents who supported and participated in this day and made the tug of war a treat for their children to watch!
