Annual Giving Appeal
From the Head Master
Trinity’s legacy has been created by all those students, staff, families and friends who over the past 106 years have contributed to the School as it is known and loved today. While the School is so much more than its buildings and facilities, those environments provide the context in which we live, learn, share and laugh together.
I am struck by the interweaving of people and place in our students’ reminisces of key moments at the School, some of which have had a profound impact on them, whether it be a service in the chapel or a conversation they had in the canteen. People and place go together and shape our boys in mind, body and spirit. Students, staff and teachers come and go, programmes and teaching methods constantly evolve, and so too our facilities must be adapted and enhanced to support best practice teaching and learning methodologies.
The Annual Giving Appeal is one way that our community members can contribute to the enduring legacy and life of the School. Year upon year, we undertake projects ranging from small refurbishments to major and complex building works. These projects, enhancing the learning opportunities of our students, are made possible through the commitment of our community.
I commend the Annual Giving Appeal to you, and in doing so, I am conscious that the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it (Psalm 24:1). Our School continues to acknowledge, as it has always done, our humble dependence on the God who is the maker of the heavens and the earth.
Thank you for your continued support of, and commitment to, Trinity Grammar School.

The Building Trust
Students are more engaged in their learning when teachers create a positive teacher-student relationship (Keddie, 2006). As our students continue to grow and our teachers push the innovative educational boundaries, we strive to provide the learning environments that foster a positive teacher-student relationship, as this is considered to be one of the most influential factors in educating students today. In addition, we must prepare our boys for the rapidly changing work environments that exist in our present society. Creating innovative learning environments is just one way that we can aid this preparation and also provide the best environments to cultivate the student-teacher relationship, while ensuring the student is always at the centre of our teaching and learning.
Supporting our Building Trust will assist in creating and enhancing innovative learning spaces.
Trinity Grammar School Scholarship Fund
Trinity has always striven to provide opportunities for students to benefit from a Trinity Education with support from one of our scholarships. In order for our School to grow the necessary funds to ensure these scholarships continue, we require the support from our community. Every contribution to this fund, whether large or small, helps our School maintain this commitment of providing life – changing opportunities for students so that they may grow in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man.
Trinity Grammar School Library Fund
It is the mission of Library Services at Trinity Grammar School to design and deliver collections and innovative services that promote and support teaching and learning and provide an enriched student experience.
We strive to share a love of learning and literature with all students, staff and members of the school community who engage with our spaces and library services.
Our day-to-day services focus on providing students with an environment to engage in learning, reading, research, co-curricular and other collaborative activities. We work alongside teaching staff to co-design units of work and/or lessons for which our Arthur Holt Library collection, our learning spaces, and/or our specialist team are best suited.
Beyond providing essential academic care, the Library Services team are committed to leading a range of initiatives that aim to add value to Trinity Grammar School.
Our books@breakfast and guest presenter program has featured the likes of Richard Glover, Dr Karl Kruszelnicki, Craig Reucassel and Stan Grant (just to name a few!). We also have extended hours during term and non-term time to meet the ever-changing needs of our school community, and run an after-hours academic mentoring programme, Study+.
We also continue to support the growing professional learning needs and offerings at the School, with Library Services staff leading and/or presenting on a variety of topics, and our spaces providing the ideal environment for professional collegial conversation.
The Library Services team greatly appreciates your support.
Our Annual Giving Appeal provides an opportunity for all members of the Trinity community to invest in the school and all gifts are greatly appreciated. There are a number of ways you may choose to give towards the ongoing development of the School as shown below.
