Co-curricular activitiesParticipation in co-curricular activities is essential to growing well-rounded boys, building self confidence and enhancing how boys connect with their school. Enjoying a wide range of different activities improves boys’ overall education experience.

These activities aid in the development of:

  • Leadership
  • Communication
  • Performance
  • Creativity
  • Decision-making
  • Co-operation
  • Service

At Trinity Grammar School Sydney the equilateral triangle that forms part of the Trinity School badge helps remind our School community of the significance that co-curricular and sporting activities play in our educational philosophy.

A key benefit, for both staff and students, of our compulsory co-curricular programme is the opportunity it affords our staff to mix with boys outside the normal classroom environment – thus further enhancing and fostering relationships between students and staff as a whole.

This involvement, we believe, also works in tandem within our sports programmes – with their emphasis on physical fitness, skills and team building. Trinity places significance on providing opportunities for our boys to develop important life skills such as these. 

Personally speaking, my role as coach of the 5th Rugby XV team, gives me a unique opportunity to interact with boys that I may not have had the chance to otherwise, as Head Master.

Ultimately, the extensive range of co-curricular activities available at Trinity help unify the boys through supportive, inclusive, worthy and enjoyable experiences.
