How Christianity inspires boys to become great leadersAt Trinity Grammar School our educational principles are underpinned by a thoroughly Christian foundation. Our foundation shapes the way in which we relate to and teach boys, as much as it shapes the way in which our boys look at the world when they graduate.  

In preparing boys to ‘live’ leadership in their community, there is much boys can learn from the teachings of Jesus and his style of leadership. Humility, integrity, social justice, self-control and compassion are qualities that come to mind.

At Trinity, boys will also be exposed to leadership ‘on the job’ as they watch and learn real leadership skills from their teachers who ‘model’ it in the classroom, on the sporting field, and in their daily interactions with boys.

Leadership cannot happen without relationship and connection. Teachers at Trinity lay the foundation for relational success by applying the following strategies:

  1. Boys and teachers have positive and genuine teaching relationships, where boys’ individual potential, passions and purpose are recognised.

  2. Teachers also develop mentoring relationships outside the classroom with involvement in activities such as sport, music and cadets to benefit learning in the classroom.

  3. Teachers demonstrate fair and consistent learning and behaviour expectations, based on clear and transparent agreements.

  4. Every boy’s views and opinions are listened to.

  5. The individuality of every boy is accepted.

  6. Teachers will use a variety of teaching strategies and materials that are relevant and meaningful to boys’ lives, that are engaging and arouse their curiosity.

  7. Each teacher must demonstrate a passion for, and a mastery of their subject/teaching area under study.

We actively encourage our students to grow in wisdom and stature and in favour with God and man, in order that they may become responsible, contributing members of society … Great leaders.
