Weekend Sports Roundup – Tennis teams ace Waverley

Trinity tennis players completed a clean sweep of 12 wins against Waverley, led by a 7-1 victory for the firsts, with the squad’s only two losses coming in make-up matches against Knox. The football teams also had a winning weekend, with no losses in the Year 7-10 matches, although the firsts and seconds both went [...]

The HSC and the IB Diploma at Trinity

At Trinity, students can choose to complete one of two senior credentials: either the Higher School Certificate (HSC) or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB Diploma). This dual-credential model in Years 11 and 12 is not always understood, either within or external to our school community. I frequently find that misconceptions and myths circulate amongst students [...]

Weekend Sports Roundup – Manners maketh the men

Trinity rugby players have won plaudits for their conduct off the field, as well as their sportsmanship on it. Two busloads of students arriving at McDonald’s Lithgow on the way home from a Saturday rugby trip to Bathurst-Orange is a sight that might cause dismay to some other patrons. But one lady, who had considered [...]

Weekend Sports Roundup – Records tumble at CIS swimming

Trinity swimmers have set four records at the NSW CIS championships. Jonathan Nam (11St) broke two in winning the 16 years 50m and the 15-16 years 100m breaststroke. Grayson Doig (10He) set a new mark in the 15-16 years 100m butterfly, and Sterling Tuxford (9WH) did the same in the 12-14 years 200m butterfly. They [...]

The pub with no beer… 

But plenty of music and Irish accents  Trinity students have been spending hours in a pop-up campus “pub”, under-age maybe but with the School’s encouragement and blessing. They have also been sounding more Irish than Paddy’s Day.  The alcohol-free hostelry is otherwise known as the Assembly Hall, which has been transformed into an Irish pub [...]

Weekend Sports Roundup – Personnel shortages bring out the best

Trinity’s First XV held on for a game 17-17 draw against St Patrick’s despite playing most of the match a man short. That was among the highlights of a tough weekend of sport in which Trinity teams managed 20 wins, against 39 losses and 11 draws, from their 70 fixtures. Another notable achievement came in [...]

Trinity remembers 

Students and staff honour Anzac Day traditions  Trinity students and staff have been thanked for their community service in helping to honour the  solemnity and dignity of local Anzac Day commemorations. Trinity cadets assisted in services at Strathfield, Ashfield, Drummoyne, Balmain and Burwood. They also also travelled to Huskisson on the NSW south coast with [...]

How do we enjoy books?

There's a reason why those books in your cupboard haven't been touched. Contributed by a member of Arthur’s Readers, the Co-curricular book club.   We at Arthur’s Readers like books. A lot. But for a lot of people, reading books as a hobby might seem tiresome or uninteresting. Trust me, even we feel that sentiment [...]

Weekend Sports Roundup – National Athletics Titles, Black and Green Shield

Trinity students and old boys were among the medals at the national track and field titles, taking a gold, silver and bronze. Rohan Browning (2015) won the 100m title in Brisbane, clocking 10.02 seconds - the fastest time by an Australian in Australia. It was just one-hundredth of a second outside his personal best and [...]

Trinity claims diving trophy and two CAS swim records 

Oh so close, as swim team pushes Knox all the way  Trinity students broke two CAS records as they came within a whisker of reclaiming the CAS swimming championship from arch rival Knox. Hayden Hoang (11Ta) set an individual record in the 17 years 50m backstroke, his time of 27.16s shaving two-hundredths of a second [...]
