Tri-UMPH was officially launched on 24 May.

Hear a summary of the events from the Tri-UMPH Student Leaders.

24 May 2022. Launch day! Jess, Charli and I had the pleasure of speaking to all the Year 11 and 12 Clonard students about Tri-UMPH 2022. As a Year 12 student, and having experienced Tri-UMPH at Clonard in 2017, I can definitely vouch that there is plenty of excitement in our cohort regarding Tri-UMPH’s return. Speaking to our peers about our main goal of supporting East Timor and getting behind the Viqueque community really felt awesome to be able to share the experience of helping so many with our school! The anticipation for this event is getting crazy, save the date, Friday 9 September 2022! Woohoo! – Georgia Ioannidis, Year 12

The Tri-UMPH cookie workshop was on the 18 May, with students from all 5 Catholic schools coming to help with the massive task. All ovens were blazing as batches of cookies were being put in and taken out constantly. Finally, with the end of the workshop came three full tubs of roughly 1,500 cookies. It was a big job and we wouldn’t have been able to get it done without the help and support from Ms Semjonov, Mr Williams, Ms Ellmer, the Tri-UMPH team and volunteers! The cookies were distributed to each school, with hopes to get people excited for the big day. – Cinnamon Sarkis, Year 11

On May 24th Cinnamon, Keeley, Elliotte and myself (minus Kate and Charli) had the pleasure to launch Tri-UMPH, which is the biggest student-organised musical festival in Geelong! While the audience consisted of more than 500 students ranging from Year 7 to 10 and it was more than a little daunting presenting to such a big audience especially being it was a first time for all of us, the response we received was amazing! The whole crowd was absolutely pumped with most students asking questions and getting excited for the big day! We honestly couldn’t have asked for a better outcome. It made all the hard work we had put in worth it. The energy in the room was ecstatic! We are all so proud to be a part of something so huge! Bring on 9 September!!! – Charlotte Horan, Year 11
