Principal's Message

As another outstanding school year comes to an end, I would like to thank and acknowledge our students and staff for their continued support and dedication to our school.  The collective work of so many individuals in our community has made this an awesome school year.

Our school community embraced our Board’s theme, “To Love Tenderly”, through so many different initiatives.  Hundreds of pounds of food were raised for our local food banks through our Titans Tackle Hunger, We Scare Hunger, and Reaching Out Norfolk campaigns.  Our Giving Tree campaign ensured that children in our community would have presents to open on Christmas Day and families had meals to share.  In addition, our school community generously supported the Tumaini Children’s Foundation to help build a basketball court, a soccer pitch, and to provide a musical program at the former orphanage for one of our Titans.  Furthermore, our school community continued their strong support for the United Way and the Heart and Stroke Foundation.  Outstanding work, Titans!

Our extracurricular programs excelled in the 2016-17 school year, as well.  Athletically we celebrated NSSAA championships in Golf, Cross Country, Tennis, Sr. Girls Basketball, Jr. & Sr. Boys Basketball, Sr. Girls Volleyball, Swimming, Boys Hockey, Girls Rugby, and Track & Field.  In addition, we had athletes shine on the provincial stage in Golf, Swimming, and Track & Field.  Several students also demonstrated their technology skills at the Ontario Skills Competition.  Musically, our Concert Band won first place at the Norfolk Music Arts Festival and earned a Silver at the London Regional Musicfest.  Students in our Agriculture SHSM program applied their rich knowledge of the farming industry and won the Gen Ag competition.  Our EcoTeam continued to implement environmental initiatives throughout the school year.  Our Students Council demonstrated their amazing spirit bringing home the Spirit Cup from the Spring Student Leadership symposium.  We are so proud of all of our Titans who are involved in our extracurricular programs.  Way to go Titans!  Please follow us on Twitter @trinitytitan to stay up to date with the many activities happening at Holy Trinity.

At the end of June, we celebrated the graduation of our 2017 class.  We are so very proud of these graduates as they have left their mark at HT through their high academic performance, through their participation in our school’s extracurricular activities, and through their social justice campaigns.  I know our graduates will continue to use their God given talents to make a difference in the world.  Congratulations Graduation Class of 2017.

In addition to our departing graduates, we must also say good-bye to Mr. Faludi and Mrs. Williams.  After 36 years of teaching, Mr. Faludi will be retiring at the end of this school year.  Mr. Faludi was on staff when Holy Trinity opened in 2001 and has been an integral part of our science department.  In addition, Tara Williams (current Special Education Department Head) has been appointed Vice Principal of Assumption College School in Brantford.  Mrs. Williams has had an extremely positive impact on our school through her role as Department Head, Students Council Advisor, and Coach.  Thank you Mr. Faludi and Mrs. Williams for your commitment and dedication to the staff and students of Holy Trinity.  We wish you all the best in your future endeavours.

I would like to wish you all a very safe and relaxing summer vacation.

God bless,
