With only a few weeks to go, our Year 12 students are preparing for the last major challenge that will see them complete their final year of school - the HSC Examinations.
But looming exams, copious amounts of content to learn for each subject, assessment tasks, and all the other challenges that come with being in Year 12 were compounded this year by a global pandemic not seen in our lifetime.
And, while it's important to recognise the chaos which has characterised 2020 and been felt the world over, it really has been a tough year for our Year 12 students.
COVID has cancelled events, limited students' opportunity to participate in sports and extracurricular activities, denied their access to Year 12 privileges such as the Common Room, created uncertainty about their future and has caused students to adjust to new normals of hand sanitiser, physical distancing, remote learning and COVID-safe events.
Yet, our Year 12 cohort has demonstrated a seemingly endless capacity to accept, adapt and recalibrate.
Their resilience and resolve has been inspiring. In accordance with Trinity's school theme for 2020, our Year 12s have done what is necessary and what is possible in order to achieve the impossible.
We are so proud of our Class of 2020 Year 12 students.
We wish them the very best in their exams, and in life beyond school.
While it has been a difficult year for all, it has also been uplifting seeing everyone work together and supporting one another. The resilience, adaptability and endurance our Year 12s have shown this year are positive attributes which will serve them well for their life ahead.
