The Trinity Grammar School Australian Army Cadet Unit BIVOUAC took place recently. Our BIVOUAC experiences were memorable, and this camp was great for all of the recruit cadets and their Senior rank members. The cadets had a bus ride down to H Range on the southern reaches of the Holsworthy Military training area. There was a walk to Charlie and Deltas night locations and this was soon followed by a Bullring exercise.

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Feb 13, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Health and happiness are always the number one priorities for your son as a parent. Whilst these factors are vitally important, as a parent you hope that your son will grow to be a strong, confident and independent boy that can achieve everything he desires.

As your son grows, there are indications from his personality traits, achievements, interests, manner and actions, of the character he is becoming. If your son is loud, confident, bold and tries to take the lead, he could be seen as a leader as he fits the traditional characteristics.

Why it's important to pay tribute to the ANZACS

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 25, 2017 6:00:00 AM

At Trinity Grammar School, ANZAC and Remembrance Days are significant events in the School calendar, reflected in the well-rehearsed and formal commemoration services that take place at the Summer Hill and Strathfield campuses.

ANZAC day is a particularly pertinent day as students, teachers and special guests recognise, remember and honour the Australian and New Zealand men whose sacrificial service in times of national and international crisis assured the freedom we enjoy today. At Trinity we believe this warrants our lasting gratitude and respect not only for the fallen, and those who served, but also for those who continue to serve in our armed forces.
