Their WOW day really was WOW! Children participated in a full day of sailing, S.U.P (stand up paddle boarding) and kayaking. For many of us it was the first time that we had tried any of these water sports and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. It was great fun-we weren&rsquo;t deterred when our sailing boat capsized, or when we had to stand up in our kayaks and jump as high as we could. Even the game to see how many children we could get on a paddleboard proved to be highly entertaining. Needless to say, the inevitable happened and we all ended up in the water. The day finished with jetty jumping (and we may have pushed a few teachers in too &ndash; sorry Mrs Smart)!</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/news/Year_6_water_paerk.jpgFri, 26 May 2017 15:12:58 GMTMay Processionhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-19-may-processionhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-05-19-may-procession<p>Well done to Bea, our May Queen, and her Attendants for a wonderful May Procession.&nbsp;</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/events/May_Procession.jpgFri, 19 May 2017 15:30:18 GMTYear 6 Awardshttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-year-6-awardshttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-year-6-awards<p>Congratulations to the following children who have been awarded School Prefects or Hous Captains:</p> <p>&nbsp; <strong>Prefects&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; House Captains</strong></p> <p>&nbsp; Kiahn&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Cheska - Oxford</p> <p>&nbsp; Saffy&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Jersey - Buckingham</p> <p>&nbsp; Sophie&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Caitlin - Warwick</p> <p>&nbsp; Nathan&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp;Reuben - Gloucester</p> <p>&nbsp; Caspar</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/news/prefects.pngFri, 28 Apr 2017 15:06:15 GMTMrs Hill's Adventure in Aid of Cancer Researchhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-mrs-hill-s-adventure-in-aid-of-cancer-researchhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-mrs-hill-s-adventure-in-aid-of-cancer-research<p>Congratulations to Mrs Hill who paddled her&nbsp;&nbsp;kayak all the way from&nbsp;Devizes To Westminster in&nbsp;aid of Cancer Research</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/news/Irene.jpgFri, 28 Apr 2017 15:01:27 GMTLondon Marathonhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-london-marathonhttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-28-london-marathon<p>A huge congratulations to Mrs Medler&nbsp;whoi ran the London&nbsp;Marathon in aid of Memorial Sloan&nbsp;Kettering Cancer Centre, New York</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/news/natalie.jpgFri, 28 Apr 2017 14:58:42 GMTAuthor visithttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-27-author-visithttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2017-04-27-author-visit<p>The author of &lsquo;Electrigirl&rsquo;, Jo Cotterill, came to talk to years 4, 5 and 6 on Thursday, delivering an energetic and inspiring talk to an enthusiastic audience.

Those who are unfamiliar with woodlands and green spaces can become confident in using them and this can form the basis of a life-long relationship with natural spaces.&nbsp;</p> http://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/images/1024x1024s/news/Forest_School(1).JPGMon, 10 Oct 2016 13:56:24 GMTYear 6 Steam Museum Triphttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-10-03-year-6-steam-museum-triphttp://holy-trinity.oxon.sch.uk/news/latest/2016-10-03-year-6-steam-museum-trip<p>The children had great fun being evacuees for the day at Swindon&#39;s steam museum.
