Visual arts classes offer more than just a creative outlet and exhibitions that make parents proud of their boys’ newfound talents. In fact, visual art classes positively impact boys’ lives in many ways, enriching their learning experience in school.

In Trinity news, mid-August saw the whole of Year 6 at the Preparatory School depart for Woollamia in the Jervis Bay region. It was an extraordinary field studies new experience for the whole of Year 6. As we left we saw all our parents waving goodbye to us.

As soon as we settled in and finished with our luggage we found out our cabin groups. We then unpacked and headed to our first activity.
Many schools offer scholarships for the education of outstanding students. Scholarships are highly competitive, and students must demonstrate excellence and achievement in a range of activities.

Empathy is the ability to understand and experience the feelings of others, and to respond in helpful ways. It’s imperative that children be taught to have empathy towards their peers. Whilst some children can show empathy more naturally than others, it is an important skill for all to learn.
Training provided in the Australian Army Cadet Unit at Trinity develops character, leadership skills and instils a sense of service in young people.
Leadership skills and experience are highly valued in both the workplace and society generally. The Australian Army Cadets programme equips students with vital life skills and can provide some advantage in the quest for scholarships and jobs.
