Class of 2019 enjoys a day of fun and friendship

On the eve of final exams at Trinity College School, members of the class of 2019 had the chance to celebrate their upcoming graduation with a day of activities dedicated to them.

Morning began with a quick rehearsal for Speech Day, followed by the last chapel of the school year. The Leaving Class Chapel was extra special as this year it fell on Ascension Day and the School was proud to welcome the Very Revd. Andrew Asbil, Bishop of the Diocese of Toronto. Following the service, staff and students formed lines leading from the Memorial Chapel to applaud our grads as they processed out to the site of the class of 2019 tree. Head prefects Ben Traugott and Zororo Mutomba joined Canon Don Aitchison and Headmaster Stuart Grainger for the ceremonial planting of the class tree.

As the other grades headed to classes, the graduates scurried to get into their class of 2019 t-shirts and head over to Russel House for a barbecue lunch hosted by the philanthropy and alumni office. The office organized a fun afternoon and evening of events for the class as a way to welcome them to their upcoming transition to the international community of TCS alumni. As they snacked on burgers and hot dogs, students signed one another’s t-shirts. Then grads boarded buses to head to Cineplex Odeon Clarington Place to watch showings of Aladdin and John Wick 3.

The class of 2019 returned to campus in time to get ready for the Class of 2019 Dinner. Headmaster Grainger invited students to The Lodge for mocktails before all headed up to Osler Hall for dinner. Among the highlights of the evening was the chance to hear from Old Girl Jenn (Guenette) Berezowski ’09, who was pleased to welcome the new class of 2019 year chairs: Angus Hall, Hallie Paddock and Amy Topshee. These three will take on the role of organizing class events, such as reunion participation, leading fundraising and helping classmates stay in touch after graduation.
