Photo: 1950s Christmas Dinner

Christmas Dinner is a favourite Trafalgar tradition, which dates back to the late 1800s. In December 1954, 30 minutes before Christmas Dinner, a 90-pound chunk of the Dinning Room ceiling fell onto a number of the tables! The early part of 1955 was spent replacing the ceiling in the Dining and Concert Halls.

Last night we celebrated our Senior Christmas Dinner, which we are happy to report went off without a hitch!

Happy Holidays to you and yours!

debate

On Monday, December 8th, Trafalgar Castle School hosted the Great Pine Ridge Regional Debate Tournament and we are pleased to announce that both our debate teams & individuals placed well at the tournament.

Trafalgar Team 2 (Sarika M. and Rachael G.) 1st Place
Trafalgar Team 1 (Katrina J. and Natalie M.) 2nd Place
Individual Gold Medal:  Sarika M.
Individual Silver Medal: Rachael G.
 
This is the second year we have hosted and competed at this tournament.  Many hours of practice and prep go into a debate tournament, in addition to many early morning and after school meetings  Professional development is fundamental to success of the team our Faculty mentor, Ms. Fuller attended a “debate boot camp” with Mr. Shakir Rahim, a well respected debate and public speaking coach in Toronto.  Our student Sarika attended a National Debate Seminar in New Brunswick in the fall.  In combination with hard work and many hours put in by everyone, I'd say that both of these PD opportunities contributed to our success at yesterday's tournament. We've learned a lot this year!

On the heels of the success at this tournament we are pleased to be moving on to the Provincials in Ottawa, February 27 - March 1, 2015.

A meal fit for Santa

The Trafalgar community welcomed a special guest to the Castle on November 29th for one of its treasured holiday traditions. Santa Claus brought greetings from the North Pole and good wishes for the season to more than 400 guests including staff, board members, parents, students, community members, and many Trafalgar alumnae who gathered at the Castle for the annual Breakfast and Lunch with Santa.

The magic of the season was evident as guests young and old entered the Lion doors and took in the beauty of the Castle trimmed in its holiday best. Once registered, guests enjoyed holiday crafts, cupcake decorating, festive tattoos, a silent auction, and candy station. As every guest was settled in the Dining Hall, Santa arrived and took time to mingle with guests, pose for photos, and listen to special Christmas wishes. The event marked the beginning of the festive season for many families who attend each year.

Live entertainment provided by Trafalgar’s own band followed by popular musical talents and children’s entertainers, Terri & Rick had children, parents, and grandparents rocking to the beats!

Special thanks to Santa for taking the time out of his busy schedule to join us again this year and to Aramark Food Services for their continued support and sponsorship of the breakfast and lunch. Funds raised from the event will go to the Alumnae Association and back into the School.
