Dear Parents, It’s hard to believe, but we are down to approximately a month of school left.

Stones carefully stacked by the ocean.

Dear Parents, Our theme this month at Trinity is patience. This is arguably one of the most difficult virtues to develop, in a world that is all about instant gratification.

Since the 1970s, Canada has designated February as Black History Month, during which we recognize the significant contributions that Black Canadians have made to our society.
