This year, Trinity Hall’s Core Council started a new tradition of Battle of the Classes to encourage school and grade-wide spirit. In a week-long competition, the grades earned points for participating in and winning different activities, contests and games from March 27 through 31. The classes embraced the competition, and ultimately, the freshman class earned the most points and was crowned the winner of Battle of the Classes.
Battle of the Classes started on Monday with a holiday-themed dress-down day and class hallway decorating. The competition then continued on Tuesday and Wednesday with a spelling bee and a whipped cream in-a-tin eating contest. After the first three days, the freshman class was in the lead with the senior class trailing close behind them. On Thursday, students gathered outside for a dodgeball tournament. After the juniors and freshmen won their respective games, they went head-to-head during lunch. It was a competitive match, but in the end, the juniors came out on top.
It all came down to the last day of Battle of the Classes as there were many points to still be won in the final games. Dressed in their class color, the classes filled the Commons as they cheered on their classmates in games of musical chairs and hungry hungry hippos. They then moved outside for an Easter egg hunt and a tug-of-war tournament, and the classes battled it out until the end. The Core Council tallied up all of the points from the whole week. The freshmen scored the most points and were named the winners of the first Battle of the Classes. The seniors followed in second, the sophomores came in third and the juniors came in fourth.
The Core Council, along with Dean of Student Life Cindy Sobieski worked hard to create and coordinate the schedule and the games for the whole week. Cindy Sobieski expressed, “Witnessing the school spirit flourish throughout the week of Battle of the Classes was inspiring and what the community needed before heading into spring break. I am humbled by the dedication of the Core Council and their perseverance throughout this entire year to bring the spirit to Trinity Hall after not being able to gather like this due to Covid-19. Their legacy will be this memory, and I am excited for Battle of the Classes to continue to grow.”
