2017 Life Skills Programme kicks off at TrinityEach term, the Trinity Grammar School Life Skills programme focuses on a different aspect of wellbeing and forms an integral part of the Personal Development curriculum in each grade from Kindergarten to Year 6. The focus for each term changes, and over the course of the year Trinity boys will learn about:

1. Social Skills
2. Boundaries
3. No Bullying
4. Resilience

This term each class is participating in a variety of learning experiences that have been designed to develop the boys’ social skills and their ability to make and develop friendships. These lessons are age and developmentally appropriate, and provide an opportunity for the boys to consider their responses and actions to real life situations that might occur at school.

It is important that these lessons take place in a safe and secure learning environment so that the boys feel able to share openly about their challenges and successes. This process is supported by a weekly ‘Circle Time’, where each class takes time out of the hustle and bustle of the normal school week to reflect on how the students are feeling about things that are occurring inside and outside of the classroom.

While the boys are given the choice to participate, many teachers have commented that their classes have developed a greater sense of unity and empathy as a result of some honest sharing.

Trinity Grammar School is fuelled by a pastorally aware culture and we take the wellbeing of our boys very seriously. At Trinity we get to know each and every child’s unique abilities, hopes and fears and help them to uncover their potential passions and purpose in life.

To experience the Trinity difference for yourself, register to attend our Open Day.
