ONLINE CLASSES - MS TEAMS APP : Trinity Central School
A wise person once said ‘At times, life throws curve balls that you would not know which direction to look and the future looks bleak. But whatever the situation, learning must never stop.‘
An ominous curve ball Covid threw life out of gear, putting the future of children in uncertain hands. While schools still remain shut, learning never took a back-seat. Education saw a new form in virtual reality, as classes went online. Whilst in the previous academic year (2020-21), we were sending video recordings, for the current academic year we, at Trinity Central School thought that it had been far too long of being separated from our students, and so, in keeping with the times we decided to take a confident plunge into virtuality, by introducing the MS Teams App. A student friendly app, in which through live classes students and teachers can interact with each other creating a class room like atmosphere, that our students have so dearly missed. We look forward to an amazing and successful year, with the MS Teams App.

Resource Person: Prof Ronald Pinto : Date: Monday, 19 April 2021

‘If there is a will, there is a way’. This proverb is as old as Galileo, for its importance lies in those words. Much importance is given for the Board exams, whether 10th or 12th for it sets the recourse to a student’s future. However, one question that forever prevails, which too, is, as old as Galileo is - what next after 10th /12th ? Music soothes when tension bangs. Bringing the students at ease with an interestingly, foot-tapping song, renowned Career Counsellor, Prof. Ronald Pinto, brought in the livery and students’ mind at ease, as he commenced his session with the Grade 10 students. The session began with Prof. Pinto explaining to the students the difference between a job and a career. In a job, all that you work for is to fill your daily bread basket, i.e., its only your wages or salary that gets credited to your account. However, when you think of career - it is not just a job, but when you work with enthusiasm and follow your passion, there is a sense of fulfilment. This feeling of job satisfaction is what defines a person’s career.

Having been nestled in the cosiness of their homes for nearly ten months, the wide smiles and cheerful whispers said it all. Bidding goodbye to online classes, the students of Grade 6-8 released colourful balloons into the air, as they kick started their journey back to school.

Students were also gifted stationary reminding them that, from today, it’s a new dawn towards a fruitful future. Beautiful diyas were also lit dispelling the darkness that had loomed all these months. Prayer is not only our physical sustenance but also our spiritual guide. The chimes of voices resonated with the prayer song ‘As the deer pants for water’. Ms Jayanthi, Assistant Academic Co-ordinator welcomed the students on behalf of all present. Following this, our Principal addressed the students, advising them on how they need to move forward from now on and reminding them of their responsibilities. Ms Veronica, the school Counsellor engaged the students in a proactive counselling session. ‘All work and no play makes Jack, a dull child’ - Entertaining games were conducted to break the ice, helping the students unwind and relax. Following a short break, the students headed back to their respective classes.

“Toughness is in the soul and spirit, not in muscles”. On 18th January 2021, the wait was finally over for the Grade 9 students of our school. Along with our Principal Rev. Fr. Anil D’Costa, Vice Principal Fr. Ravi Serrao, Co-ordinators and teachers, miniature corona viruses were nipped at the bud as the ceremonial ribbon was cut, and a shower of fragrant petals filled the air. Each student was presented with a packet of vegetable seeds, reminding them that they are the ambassadors of the future generations to come. God’s blessings were invoked as all prayerfully sang ‘Bind us together’ . Ms Magdaliena Lewis, Academic Co-ordinator welcomed the students after which our Vice-Principal Rev. Fr.
