On the 31st January 2017 students from Trinity Work Skills decide to perform a show call Trinity Got Talent which was perform at Unit 2B. The performances showcased the amazing talents that us students have. Acts ranged from singing, signing, and dancing. The show started at 1:00pm till 3:00pm with light refreshments. There were lots of groups involved in the show such as the Performing Arts group and the I.T group who took videos and photos of the event.

My names Alistair and I had to be compere which is just a fancy name for host for Trinity’s got talent. I had to introduce a range of acts from singing and dancing to signing and even a piano solo from Jenny Hadfield.

As much as I wanted to be in the performance I preferred to be the host as I didn’t have to perform anything and I could improvise if something went wrong which fortunately didn’t , good job . The sound and photography team also did very well. A good job by all.

My name’s is Adam and I performed in the first Act.  I was part of a group we signed Delilah and I enjoyed it a lot because I’m a Stoke fan and its one of their songs. We all did well. Afterwards I took photos of the other acts there were group performances signing and singing songs such as Busted and Blame it on the boogie

Hi, my name is Jennifer H and my act was tickling the ivories. I performed a famous hymn called 'You'll Never Walk Alone'. I practiced that song for two weeks.
Lets kick off with Tom Jones 'Why, Why Why Delilah' and it involved all the students. We got 20 stars.
There were other acts such as singing, dancing and signing, and playing piano. There was solo dancing, fast random dancing and random singing,

There were about 30 to 50 people in the audience who were parents/carers & family of students & staffs. At half time orange blackcurrant & chocolate biscuits were given to the audience, they loved the show yes they did! Some highlights of the show were when all of the students sang and danced together.

My Colourful Hobby


 I can tell you a lot about colouring because it is one of my favourite pastimes. The best way to complete a colouring book is to start with the front page.
 I prefer to colour in using felt tip pens because they create nice lines and bright colours. My favourite colouring book is 'The colouring book of Scotland'.
I like this book because it's filled with kind pictures of Scottish places like Edinburgh and Balmoral castle. Depending on the how much detail I put in to each picture it can take a few weeks to complete. I find the time to colour in at home & at Trinity during my breaks.
Sometimes it's good to mix hobbies. I like wood burning too so I'm now wood burning one of the pictures from my book onto a piece of wood.
 I hope you have enjoyed reading about my hobby. It's great to share a bit about it with you.  If you feel inspired you can find colouring books in most bookshops and supermarkets. Let's get colouring!

Christmas at Trinity - Student's Reflect


 As many of our students and their families know, Christmas was a busy time for us. Lots of activities helped to create a warm and festive atmosphere amongst the Trinity Skills community.
The It and Media group have taken a moment to reflect on all of the fun that was had and have comprised this post as a result.

Christmas Panto

 On Wednesday 14th December students and Staff went to Stafford Gatehouse Theatre to watch 'Aladdin: The Wok and Roll Panto'. It was a great show, funny and good to sing along to. My favourite bit was Aladdin's pet monkey 'Cuddles'. He was so cheeky and funny! I'd go again to see a Panto next year.

Signed Choir, Hilderstone Hall Performance

On Tuesday 5th December 2016, the signing choir group went to Hilderstone Hall to perform their annual Christmas show for the residents. The Choir was outstanding and it went really well. It was very challenging because there were lots of audience members watching the spectacular Performance.

All the Students are hardworking and talented Signers. 

We performed the tracks: “Flying without Wings”, I wish it could Christmas Everyday”, “let the flame burn bright”, and “Count on me”!

On Thursday 15th December 2016 the staff & students went for a Christmas meal at the Greyhound at Burston and we had some crackers to pull at our tables when we arrived. Then we had our lunch and it consisted of a mains and a desert with choices of Beef, Turkey, Lasagne and Desert’s consisted of Ice Cream, Christmas Pudding and Chocolate Fudge cake.

 Craft Fayre

 On Wednesday 7th December 2016 at Unit 2B students hosted the craft fayre. There were different stalls such as cake stalls, woodwork, glass stalls, Clifford card stalls, Marquetry and Art stalls, there were also plenty of hot drinks available like coffee and tea. There were lots of items to buy at the fayre such as bird boxes, glass items, cakes and Christmas cards. We raised lots of money for enterprise materials and for Club 101.

On Tuesday the 13th of December the Trinity Skills performing arts group had their annual Christmas show at St Michael’s church. This year’s theme was about X factor, Britain’s Got Talent and Strictly Come Dancing.
The show was very enjoyable and had most of the audience tapping their feet to some of the songs also behind the scenes was a very stressful time for the sound team who had to make sure the right songs were played at the right time so well done to them and the media team for the photos and the video.
And very well done to the performers who have been practising tirelessly for weeks just to make sure everything was perfect.

My first session was signing choir which I really enjoyed, we signed frozen 'let it go'. I made a new friend called Josh and in the afternoon I did media where we started writing blogs I am really happy to be at TSFL and excited to start my new time table

Staff v Students Football Match 2016

Trinity Skills For Life
Pictured: The Student (and friends) team
Landslide victory 7 – 3 to the Students

We had a good turnout of spectators on Friday 16th September who cheered the teams on and hopefully enjoyed a very competitive match!

Staff got off to an early lead and at half time they were ahead 2 – 1. However the students then came out all guns blazing and it was one goal after another. The students thoroughly enjoyed the experience of playing on a fantastic pitch – with floodlights on in the second half!

Thank you to Geoff Banwell who refed the match fair and square. Special thanks to Bill Grinham and Bob Lloyd for their help on the night and to Eccleshall Football F.C for letting us use their ground. We hope to have a rematch next year.

Goal scorers-
Staff: Chris Clare, Alex Steer & Steve ‘Teletubby’ Twigg
Students: J Heeley (2), A Smyth, M Steer, T Brough,
E Batchelor, J Batchelor
