Exam periods can be stressful for some students. Boys often feel increased pressure leading up to exam time and require a supportive home environment to help them through study demands. As parents, you have an important role to play in supporting your son through his exams. You can help him to prepare, encourage him to rest and create a family environment that is conducive to study.
Photography is something many children enjoy. Not only is it a great way to explore the world, but it’s fun, creative and can be a valuable bonding experience between you and your son. Teaching children photography doesn’t have to be hard. A few straightforward techniques are all it takes to be able to flourish behind the camera. We uncover some simple photography tips for kids.
Who best to share their study time management tips than those Trinity Grammar School scholars of 2018 who excelled in their final Year 12 examinations? While each person is unique and must find the study techniques and regime that work best for them, it can be useful to read about others’ strategies for managing time. We hope your son can pick up some tips and tricks to maximise his study and minimise his stress.
The daily routine of regular school hours, wearing uniforms and following rules are a distant memory for our HSC and IB scholars. Instead they are faced with being independent, making their own decisions, and not having a teacher remind them of when assignments are due. For some the change is a breath of fresh air, while for others it can take a bit of getting used to.
When Year 4 Junior School student William Saunders started learning Mandarin in Kindergarten at Trinity Grammar School in Sydney, he could never have dreamed of the journey he would take, and the path to inspiration that would follow.
Pastoral care is defined as “the provisions made to advise students about personal wellbeing and their moral and ethical concerns.” At Trinity, this means that your son will be known, cared for and guided to grow in mind, body and spirit. Our pastoral care system is central to everything we do. When we consider the question, ‘What is pastoral care?’, it’s helpful to look at how schools care for their students.
In Trinity News: The School was fortunate to host Dr Phillip Lowe, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), for an economics Q&A session. The Governor was fresh from the Senate inquiry. Governor Lowe is arguably the most influential economist in Australia, and our Head of Economics, Mr Moore put it, he not only understands the history of economics but is himself making history. In such a significant time for the RBA and monetary policy in Australia, Governor Lowe generously gave his time to a small but highly engaged group of senior Economics students.
The Trinity Field Studies experience is quite unique. It is an opportunity we would not get to be part of anywhere else. It is a valuable experience for everyone who takes part in the Field Studies programme. There is a lot to learn and new things to try for all. There is much to say about my time spent at Field Studies, I had my fair share of challenges and highlights like everybody. There was also much fun to be had during our four-week stay.
Whether your son has a natural flair for the Arts, enjoys a challenging maths equation or is a computer whiz – the visual arts are for everyone. Studies have proven that the benefits of visual arts are endless, and the good news is, you needn’t aspire to be an artist or musician to enjoy this diverse and all-encompassing field.
As we enter this concluding phase of our students’ 2019 academic journey it can be exciting to begin to contemplate what lies beyond, but the reality is that the final stage of a journey always involves stepping deliberately into challenges, if we are to finish well.
