Why it's important to pay tribute to the ANZACS

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 25, 2017 6:00:00 AM

At Trinity Grammar School, ANZAC and Remembrance Days are significant events in the School calendar, reflected in the well-rehearsed and formal commemoration services that take place at the Summer Hill and Strathfield campuses.

ANZAC day is a particularly pertinent day as students, teachers and special guests recognise, remember and honour the Australian and New Zealand men whose sacrificial service in times of national and international crisis assured the freedom we enjoy today. At Trinity we believe this warrants our lasting gratitude and respect not only for the fallen, and those who served, but also for those who continue to serve in our armed forces.

As well as being great writers, Trinity boys love speaking (ask any parent). To harness their love of a chat, Trinity Preparatory School boys wax lyrical about a set subject at the annual Preparatory School Public Speaking Competition.

The 2017 competition was open to all boys in Years 3 to 6 and the topics provided were:

Encouraging your son to develop good values

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 14, 2017 6:00:00 AM

Our values are the principles that drive our behaviour. They influence the way we work with each other and how we engage with the community. They are the standards we hold ourselves up against and what we consider important. Values may be guided by our religious beliefs, supported by the Church, and stem from our innate sense of what is right.

Our values define who we are and for this reason, it is incredibly important that we instil good values and a strong moral compass in our children.

Trinity’s approach to career planning

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 8, 2017 6:00:00 AM

In the midst of all the demands that school makes on young people, it is often difficult for them to see past Year 12, let alone make decisions about what to do after school and plan how to get there.

While some young people have a clear career path in mind and find the process of choosing a first career exciting and empowering, for many young people, it can be difficult to take a step back and look at the options objectively. Making the best career choices requires:

  • Self-awareness and knowledge of personal strengths and preferences
  • an understanding of what different occupations encompass.
