Basketball Success For Eagles - 21/03/2014 On Friday 21st March the Oakfield Trinity basketball team were lucky enough to have won tickets to watch their heroes, the Newcastle Eagles play at Sport Central in Newcastle. It was a great game which was attended by a number of staff, and the Eagles cruised to victory 95 points to 67. Afterwards 2 students were asked to have their photos taken with the team which was a real joy for them and capped off a brilliant night.
Basketball at Percy Hedley - 17/03/2014 On Monday 17th March we attended the Newcastle Eagles Basketball Festival at Percy Hedley School in Killingworth. It was a great day where the team mixed with players from schools such as Castle Green, Sir Charles Parsons and Southlands. The morning was a strenuous two hour coaching session where the team perfected certain areas of their game with coaches including our friend Aaron, Sasha, Taylor and Eagles Assistant Coach Ian McLeod. In the afternoon we played a tournament where we were narrowly outpointed by some sharp shooting Sir Charles Parsons School. Overall it was a day to remember and everyone involved had a thoroughly enjoyable day.
Frozen Fun! - 14.05.14 During rewards on Wednesday, we decided to have a Disney Frozen afternoon. We thoroughly enjoyed watching the film whilst drawing, colouring and painting Disney Frozen themed images. We had a discussion regarding the characters in the film, what we liked and disliked about them and after a long debate we agreed that Olaf was our favourite! I think we may now have a new Disney Club!!

On Wednesday 14th of January a group of KS3 students went Mountain Biking down into Jesmond Dene and Heaton Park as part of their Outdoor Education. It was a fantastic day and the students really enjoyed getting out and trying some of the off-road tracks. It was a very cold day and some of the tracks were quite icy and wet in places but the students handled it very well. Overall a great day and well done to group 8 for their effort and maturity throughout.
Melisa from Trinity Solutions - Good Luck Story Dated: 12/01/2015 Melisa - ALD Hair and Beauty "When I started ALD hair and beauty academy, I joined with the pre-16 group when I was at school. I attended a behavioural school within Gateshead. Whilst at ALD I learnt alot within the hairdressing industry and it really boosted my confidence and it also improved my behaviour. I gained my Level 1 Diploma in hair and beauty at ALD on the study programme, I then progressed onto my Level 2. I found myself a work placement and the help from my college tutor Julia Allen, I was then offered a Saturday job, this progressed with me being offered an apprenticeship, which was great!!! I wouldn't have been able to do all of this if it wasn't for the tutors at ALD, who taught me alot whilst studying on the learning programme."
Students break up for half term Thursday 12th February at 2.45pm and return Monday 23rd February
Year 11 were offered a special reward for making progress in English and Maths. This was a day learning to drive off road. We met at a farm near Wolsingham and our instructors arrived in two bright red shiny Land Rovers. We began by mastering the controls driving loops of a sheep field. Each student took a turn at driving using the low-range gears and some managed to avoid stalling. Then the action really began. We drove down steep banks, across rivers, sideways onto banks, and then up on to the fell. Exhilarating stuff. The students had a fantastic time and really enjoyed learning the basics of how to drive.

Residential - 01.05.14 May 1st seemed like an ideal time for the year's first residential at Barrowburn Camping Barn in Upper Coquetdale. A mixed group from KS2, KS3 & Oakfield stayed there from 1st-2nd May and explored the local surroundings. Despite a cold and wet start to the trip, sunshine soon broke through, visibility improved and there were excellent views of the Pennine ridge and North Northumberland later in the day. A night-time activity of 'Manhunt' in Holystone Forest provided much amusement for everyone as it was a particularly dark night. Some participants' imaginations were very active... As well as looking at how the land is used by farmers and forestry, pupils were fortunate enough to see a wide range of wildlife (deer, hares, hedgehogs, mice, ravens and hawks) in addition to numerous sheep in various shades of white, brown and black.
Spelling Bee - 28.04.14 This morning saw our inaugural (very first) Spelling Bee and what a brilliant experience it was. Six pupils from Years 7 and 8 took part in the event; competing against each other to spell words like: carbohydrate, circumference, advantageous and preferential. Once a competitor had spelt three words incorrectly they were eliminated from the competition until we were left with the final two. In a nail-biting head-to-head buddies, David and Ben W, faced each other. After exchanging heart-warming looks of support, both boys dropped their heads as the final word was read out. Their nerves and desire to win were palpable to everyone in the room. The crowd, made up of students and staff, was incredible and totally in-tune with the pressure and anticipation of the situation. They remained quiet save the occasional whisper of support for the boys. The silence soon broke out into rapturous cheers and applause as a piece of orange card placed on David's table eliminated him from the competition declaring Ben the winner. With tears of joy, incredulity and relief in his eyes Ben shook hands with his (still) buddy before accepting his prize money of £10. This was an amazing event and a great achievement for these pupils and heralds the beginning of our termly Spelling Bee. It could be that an intra-school Spelling Bee will be buzzing around in the very near future so it may be time for Oakfield to start swotting up (that's swotting with an o).
NUFC Foundation Coaching - 12.05.14 On Monday 12th May we were lucky enough to have ex-Newcastle player Dean Critchlow in school to pass on his knowledge and expertise to our learners at Oakfield.They had a great time and Dean proved to be an excellent coach and mentor to the lads who took part in the session.
2014 Cross Country Championship - 30.04.14 On Wednesday 30th April 2014 Oakfield and Deneview sites took part in the Wanderers Sports Association Cross Country Championships. It was a fantastic event to be part of and all the learners who took part did Trinity School proud. It was such a friendly yet competitive atmosphere and they all came back with medals. Special congratulations to Callum and Mark who won two of the three categories with extremely strong running. Well done!
Rugby For Change - 29.04.14 On Tuesday 29th April, Steve and Peter from Rugby for change delivered their second session in the 'Rugby for Change' project at the school. They are at Oakfield to introduce some of our learners to the sport of rugby as well as reinforcing a number of key moral, cultural and social issues as part of the learning process. The course has had a massive impact on the learners so far with all thoroughly enjoying the activities they have participated in. Steve Langley has been very impressed with the attitudes of all involved, 'It's been brilliant to see how well they are working and how much they are benefitting from the expertise that the coaches are bringing into the school'.

2014 Dodgeball Tournament - 02/04/2014 On Wednesday 2nd April we had a whole school Dodgeball tournament which had staff and students 'facing off' against each other in an electric atmosphere. Even Chris Rue turned up in an outfit even more hideous than normal to take part in the event. After an afternoon of physical exertion and a fair bit of whingeing from a number of staff, the competition was brilliant fun and a well worthwhile experience for all. Can't wait to do it again next year!
Friday 23rd May 2014 - please note this is a staff training day, both Deneview and Oakfield will be closed to students on this day. Students will return to school on Monday 2nd June 2014 at normal time after our half term holiday.
Success for Deneview Pupils In Penalty Shoot Out - 21/03/2014 On Friday 21st March Oakfield held an 'open' penalty shoot out competition with members of Deneview School invited as part of a transition event. The standard was very high and all the competitors were desperate to win the trophy which was up for grabs. After a nerve wracking sudden death, Ryan emerged victorious with Ethan and Ryan being forced into the runners up positions. Well done Ryan!
Photography - 11/03/2014 On Tuesday 11th March 2014 Billy and Lisa took a group of our photography students to Tynemouth and St. Marys Lighthouse for the morning to complete some important GCSE coursework. Every member of the group demonstrated fantastic interest and listened intently to what the tutors from Newcastle CLC were saying. They took hundreds of photos between them, in the search for that perfect picture. They used various settings on the cameras to take various types of photographs and waited patiently for that perfect moment. The students will now process their images next week using 'Photoshop' using the 'Apple Macs' next week at the CLC. Next trip is to Scotswood Road on 1st April 2014 to capture graffiti.
Cross Site Football Success - 05/03/2014 On Wednesday 5th March 2014 Deneview and Oakfield entered four teams into the Wanderers Sports Association Football Tournament at North Shields. The day was a massive success with Trinity taking top honours in all three categories of under 11's, under 14's and under 16's. As usual the emphasis was on 'fair play' and 'sportsmanship' and players from both sites more than did us proud. Reggie Dornan from NUFC commented on what a pleasure it was to work with Oakfield and Deneview learners.

More news from Deneview!!! Deneview Music Trinity Deneview have recently been lucky enough to host a performance from itinerant musicians Jennifer Palfreyman (saxophone) and Owen Williams (vibraphone and percussion), who are collectively known as ‘Pasaos Duo’. The duo played to the whole school for just over an hour and performed many well known tunes, plus a selection of less familiar titles sourced from a catalogue of world music. Both staff and students were thrilled by the excellent standard of musicianship and enthusiastically involved themselves in the performances and mini workshops. These performances have always been a highlight of our academic year and we are looking forward to future concerts with great enthusiasm.
