With Literacy and Numeracy Week just around the corner (4 to 10 September 2017) we look at Trinity Grammar School’s Arthur Holt Library and how it inspires lifelong learning and a love of reading. Delivering collections and innovative programmes that celebrate text, promote literacy, and support teaching and learning, the cutting-edge Library has a three-pronged approach to enriching the student experience.
Theresa Ardler never imagined that her work with Sydney’s Trinity Grammar School would lead to an emotional reconnection with her family’s past and a return of treasure beyond measure with rich historical significance.
Exams, assignments, music lessons, sporting commitments, and drama rehearsals. These are just some of the priorities your son has to manage on a daily basis, not to mention eating a balanced diet, enjoying time out with friends, quality time with family and sleep.
Managing priorities is all about time management; recognising your workload, acknowledging deadlines and knowing if/when you have spare time for additional commitments.
Exams, assessments, social status and game day. These are some of the many things your son may feel ‘stressed’ about during his schooling years.
Stress is the feeling we have when we are under pressure. This could be the pressure your son may feel to succeed, to achieve great results or to be included or accepted by his peers.
We all want our children to be passionate, curious and motivated to learn about the world around them. So how do we provide them with the opportunities they need to encourage this inside and outside of the classroom?
At Trinity Grammar School, we believe that your son’s education should extend beyond the classroom walls. Co-curricular activities are essential to growing well-rounded boys who are confident, passionate, curious and motivated to learn.
What makes a good leader?
A leader is a person with great communication, teamwork and motivation skills. They are trustworthy and honest, respected, responsible and committed. They are also positive and creative, with an exceptional ability to delegate, problem solve and offer timely and constructive feedback.
We all hope that our children become people of ‘good’ character, but what does this really mean and how do we encourage them to build ‘good’ character?
In the spirit of community relationship building an Ashfield Police football team tackled a group of Year 12 students in a friendly football match at Trinity Grammar School this week, but the boys in blue were no match for Trinity speed and agility! While they put up a valiant fight, Ashfield Police failed to find the back of the net going down 5-0 to the Trinity XI Football side.

At 4:45am the alarm goes off. I reluctantly get out from under the warm doona. The drive to school is in the dark. Not fully awake, I walk from the carpark to the pool. It is cold. I dive into the cool water at 5:30am. We follow the black line up and down – up to seven kilometres per training session.
Local primary school students converged on Bradley’s Head in Sydney Harbour National Park on Sunday 30 July to unveil more than fifty new interpretive signs featuring their own illustrations using resources and materials from the Backyard Buddies website.
Designed by the school students from Beauty Point Public School and funded by the NSW National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) and the Foundation for National Parks & Wildlife (FNPW), the 52 new interpretive signs will help visitors of all ages to discover more about the plants and animals found along the walks that line the foreshore of Sydney Harbour.
