Trinity Day Finished off with Marcellin and Merlot

29 July, 2017
Enthusiastic staff at Trinity College, gathered for a relaxing evening of creativity, spirituality, and frivolity to conclude their college feast day.
Trinity Day, a celebration of St Marcellin Champagnat, founder of the Marist Brothers who founded the college, finished with the inaugural Marcellin & Merlot Evening for staff.
During the evening attendees were taken through step-by-step instructions on how to paint three violets, representing the Three Marial Virtues: humility, simplicity and modesty. Staff were provided with all the materials for the session as well as wine, cheese, and live music performed by talented staff member, David Bowler on vocals and keyboard.
Religious Education Curriculum Leader, Alex Walls, came up with the unique staff bonding concept. Alex said the idea of the night was to provide an opportunity for staff to engage with the arts and the Marist spirituality in a relaxed social setting.
She said the Marcellin and Merlot evening was a great success and suggested it could become a regular fixture at the college.
“I think this will be the first of many,” Alex said
“The evening was thoroughly enjoyed by all and the final results were outstanding – no two works were the same,” she said.
