In Trinity news, 800 students from the School, aged from five to 12 stopped speaking and remained silent for up to an entire school day. The students recently took part in Day Without Speech, in support of a programme which raises funds to bring speech therapy to Cambodians.
By participating in the challenge, students learned valuable lessons about the value of communication and it fostered gratitude and empathy for those with special needs. It provided them scope to explore their creativity in finding ways to communicate without using their voice, while also teaching them mindfulness. As students weren’t allowed to speak, they had to resort to using hand gestures, facial expressions, writing and even technology to communicate.

The long flight to Beijing and the cold weather did not diminish the excitement of the group. By the time they arrived at Renda Fuzhong, it was already quite late in the evening. After the dormitory rooms were allocated, they had only 20 minutes before the hot water was turned off for the evening. The rooms were plain and the beds were firm but cosy and warm.

Diversity is more than paying heed to buzz-words such as harmony, inclusion and understanding, it is about action. At its’ core, diversity is about justice and fairness and removing the artificial barriers to opportunity provided by such indicators as race, ethnicity, gender and socio economic status. We all agree that without such barriers the world has an opportunity to put an end to the terror that greets us nightly on the news. But how do we move beyond the rhetoric and bring about meaningful and lasting diversity?
Dawn on 25 April marks the time when Australian and New Zealand forces landed north of Gaba Tepe on the Gallipoli Peninsula. They met fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders, along with the odd German advisor. News of the landing at Anzac Cove had made a profound impact on Australians at home, and 25 April soon became known as the day it is today - a day when Australians remember the sacrifice of those who had died in war.
The story of Anzacs is one that all students know well. What had been planned as a bold stroke to knock Turkey out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for a further eight months. At the end of 1915 the allied forces were evacuated, after both sides had suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships (over 8,000 Australian soldiers had been killed).
