Cross Country Report | Meet 6 – Newington

Last Saturday’s weekly Cross Country invitational was the first relay event of the season, a variation in format which always brings with it additional excitement and energy. Trinity, despite many absences due to sickness, injury and other reasons, managed to field eleven student teams and one staff team. Ours is a team as well as [...]

From the Head Master

During the course of this week there has been some discussion in the media comparing the academic results of boys and girls. In particular, there were two stories in the Sydney Morning Herald that caught my eye. The first one had to do with different performances of girls and boys across the State in rankings [...]

From the Head Master

Recently I read Into the Rip, which is subtitled “How the Australian way of risk made my family stronger, happier … and less American”. It is written by Damien Cave, an American journalist who relocated to Sydney with his family in early 2017, who reflects on their experience of changing cultures. Settling in Bronte and [...]

2022 NSW All Schools Swimming Championships – SOPAC (Friday 3rd June 2022)

The NSW All Schools Swimming Championships was first held 32 years ago, in 1990, with the idea of bringing together the very best swimmers from the three NSW School Sporting Associations to compete for either the Combined High Schools (CHS), Combined Catholic Colleges (CCC) or Combined Independent Schools (CIS) team.

Cross Country Report | Meet 6 – Newington

It was a busy week for many of our runners! Quite apart from the House Track and Field carnival, there are two significant inter-school events to report on: the sixth invitational carnival at Sydney Park hosted by Newington on Saturday, and the Combined Independent Schools Cross Country Championships on Wednesday.   Sydney Park Invitational Despite [...]

From the Head Master

Over the last couple of weeks, and particularly the last twenty-four hours, I have been both humbled and delighted to see the extended School community’s enthusiasm for the new Scholarship Trust. In our preparations for our inaugural Giving Day, I was encouraged by the generosity of the donors who committed funds to the matching pool. [...]

News from the Field Studies Centre

The FSP leaders shared some insights into the last [...]

NOTE: Below this week’s report is a list of those students who have earned selection to the CAS Cross Country team for 2022, in all a remarkable 29 Trinity runners.

Our Team, having the challenge of limited time together to practice and rehearse the set drill [...]

From the Head Master

Our School’s inaugural Giving Day is approaching rapidly. I imagine that most members of the extended TGS community will have encountered information and communication about this event, which is taking place next week. The impetus for this Giving Day has come from a number of convictions. The first is our belief that a Trinity Grammar [...]

Rugby vs St. Gregory’s

Trial against St. Gregory’s Our previous two season have been heavily impacted by sickness and this year we have been hampered by excessive rainfall. So, it seems somewhat appropriate that they combined forces on the weekend to continue causing disruption to the season. The high levels of student illness, along with the closure of grounds [...]

Careers: Futures Fair 22

Futures Fair 22 As we have been unable to host a Careers Expo in the last two years, we have created a series of careers-related events for students in Years 10 to 12 under the banner of a ‘Futures Fair’. We commenced Futures Fair 22 events at the beginning of May and have invited 28 [...]

News from the Field Studies Centre

A significant aspect of the Field Studies Programme is the focus on reflection. Students spend time around the campfire most weeks debriefing their experience and reflecting on the journey they are undertaking.

From the Head Master

I suspect that I am not alone in finding the current election campaign uninspiring. For various reasons, our national political landscape does not favour big and bold ideas. While most of us would not want to find ourselves in the hyper-partisan USA, where the political parties and their supporters seem to inhabit different worlds from [...]

Rugby vs St. Pius X College

Trial against St. Pius X The continued rainfall saw several of our fixtures cancelled due to ground closures. However, thanks to the continued stellar effort of the Trinity ground staff, and the considerable administration skills of our Sports Master, we managed to have ten of our teams get down and dirty in the mud over [...]

Debating News | FED Debating Semi-Final

YEAR 7 FED B report – Newington College v Trinity This debate was nerve wracking. The type of debate that made you stick to your seat. It was the semi-finals; we needed to win this debate to face MLC in the Grand Final. We didn't have a good record either, the one time we had [...]

News from the Field Studies Centre

A discipline can be defined as something that is both good for us and for others. Waking at 6:30am in readiness for the morning fitness sessions takes discipline; getting up and moving helps to motivate the other boys in the dorm to do the same. The members of the School water polo team who are [...]

Tennis Round 3 vs Knox

As is often the case, last weekend's fixture against Knox proved to be a difficult encounter due to their depth of ability and competitiveness. Despite this, all Trinity teams played to the best of their ability and did not yield voluntarily. The 1st IV was competitive and could have won this fixture, but their Achilles [...]

Cross Country Report | Meet 3 – Kings

Beneath the crystal-blue skies that heralded a great weekend for sport, King's was hiding a dirty secret. Really dirty: enough squelchy mud to keep a pig happy for a lifetime. Our before and after photos tell the story; the green and white was quickly transformed into the spotted green and brown (no invidious racial undertone [...]

Chaplaincy | Fuel Camp for Years 7 – 12

Trinity / Meriden ‘FUEL Camp’ 2022 The June long weekend (June 10-12) is fast approaching. For many this will be a time for a break from the 5-day school and work week with perhaps a getaway and time with family. But every year at Trinity it also sees the annual Trinity/Meriden FUEL Camp take place. [...]

From the Head Master

One aspect of growing to adulthood is the development of the capacity for self-regulation. If we are to be more than puppets on a string, we need to learn how to control our responses to the circumstances, experiences and interactions that we encounter from day to day. Volatility is not a character strength and the [...]

Academic Focus

Student-centred learning and the Nationally Consistent Collection of Data on School Students with Disability (NCCD) Trinity’s student-centred approach to learning prioritises the individual growth a student makes rather than comparative judgements amongst a cohort. One of the most significant expressions of this philosophy is Trinity’s commitment to providing all students, including those with diverse learning [...]

From the Deputy Head Master – Summer Hill

Whoever loves discipline loves knowledge, but he who hates correction is foolish. Proverbs 12:1 The focus of this term’s Life Skills programme is growth, and your sons have heard about the importance and value of having a growth mindset, and that determination, stamina, and perseverance are high-value personal attributes. At Trinity, we hold tightly the [...]

Rugby vs Oakhill College

Trial against Oakhill College This weekend saw the men in green and white head out to Castle Hill to take on Oakhill College. It was certainly a tough day, as we saw victory in only four of the 15 fixtures. However it must be noted there was an immense improvement across the board from the [...]

The term-long Field Studies Programme is a powerful experience for the boys who undertake it.

Debating News | ISDA Octos 1 and FED Quarter-Final

YEAR 7 ISDA report – Trinity v St. Joseph’s College It was Octos 1, we were finally in the knockout series of the ISDA season. We have practically always walked in with a mindset that, even if we lost, we at least knew what we needed to do better for the next debate. However now, [...]

Tennis Round 2 vs St Aloysius’ College

Round 2 of the Winter competition was contested last weekend against St Aloysius'. It was in fact great to get on court and compete after the disappointment of the previous week.

Cross Country Report | Meet 2 – Sydney High

The contrast to last week’s weather and geography could not be greater: green not brown, sand not mud, sun not rain, flat not hilly! Even our coaches could not but enjoy such beautiful running weather, turning up for the local Centennial Park Parkrun at 7am. (Of note in this “pre-show” event was Patrick Cantlon, last [...]

Academic Focus

PLANNING WELL AND NAPLAN 2022 This week on the morning Quad Assembly, Year 12 student Rory Briscoe addressed the school about the value of planning thoroughly and seeking feedback on your planning. His speech was a witty and entertaining start to the day – but he also made a series of important points. Rory explained [...]

From the Head Master

As the Federal election campaign period trundles towards its conclusion, I must admit to a slight sense of relief that school education has not been a prominent issue. While I am (unsurprisingly) convinced that education must be a high priority for our nation’s leaders and our society as a whole, experience suggests that campaigns are […]

From the Deputy Head Master – Summer Hill

It’s a long way to the top if you want to rock’n’roll. This morning at Quad Assembly we enjoyed a wonderful promotional performance of the upcoming production of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s, School of Rock.  A Guardian review of the musical makes the unsurprising (for those of us who have seen the 2003 film) observation that [...]

News from The Arthur Holt Library

News from the Field Studies Centre

Cross County Report | Meet 1 vs Waverley and St Aloysius’ – 30 April 2022

The first event of the Cross Country season brought with it much anticipation and excitement, and rightly so!

North Ryde Common looked more like North Ryde Wetlands, which had many parents and coaches commenting – in the [...]

From the Deputy Head Master – Summer Hill

They shall not grow old, as we that are left grow old; Age shall not weary them, not the years condemn.

From the Head Master
