P7 Stem Challenge

On Wednesday 27th March six primary 7 pupils were invited to take part in the STEM challenge run by SENTINUS. The Primary stem challenge is a hugely enjoyable problem solving challenge for teams of three pupils. The two Holy Trinity teams entered were up against some stiff competition from different primary schools across Belfast. Using basic technology materials, the pupils were required to design and build a solution in a set time. This year the children had to design a car that would carry a load down a ramp and travel across the assembly floor. Both teams did extremely well and represented themselves and the school with great distinction.


Professor Fluffy Programme.

  • The Professor Fluffy Programme introduces P7 pupils to Queen’s University. Representatives from QUB visit schools to tell the pupils all about university life in a fun, engaging and interactive way. Professor Fluffy aims to make children aware of the exciting opportunities available through higher education and through early introduction, we hope to encourage children to set their goals high for the future. The school has already received a visit from Professor Fluffy, along with one of the members of the Widening Participation Team. The pupils received an interactive and engaging talk about Higher Education and had the opportunity to ask lots of questions about University life.  Following this, On the 29th April, the pupils will get an opportunity to visit Queen’s University for a campus tour and carousel of STEM skills building activities. The visit to University is rounded off by the opportunity for the pupils to try on graduation gowns and take home their very own mini Professor Fluffy.

Happy Mother’s Day!

Holy Trinity P5 children had a fantastic couple of days planting flowers before Mother’s Day. Children from P1-P7 and LSC too were all involved and made 290 beautiful planters all for their mums and grannies!  The children chose their flowers and containers before planting in soil and adding a Mother’s Day message. A huge thank you to everyone who bought Mother’s Day Planters to raise money for Trocaire and other charities.

A big thank you to Mr Hackett for organising this fun project!

We hope  you all have a lovely day on Sunday!

P7LM Music Morning

On Friday 22nd March P7LM were invited to attend Music Morning in Fortwilliam School of Music alongside four other schools. The boys and girls had to learn words to five different songs and chants. These songs and chants were accompanied with instruments or actions and all children had the opportunity to play an instrument. The pupils also had to come up with a musical compilation that represented the rocket taking off and visiting three different planets. They performed extremely well on the day and participated enthusiastically. Click the photograph to see us sing.
