Schools need community feedback in order to ensure future success. Education at Trinity Gramma School is about more than academic achievement – our vision is to help boys grow in mind, body and spirit. This vision relies on collaboration and purposeful relationships. When parents and the wider community engage and collaborate, it enhances the school as a whole. This is at the heart of why community consultation is important and critical to success of the school.

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Mar 24, 2018 6:00:00 AM

In Trinity news, 800 students from the School, aged from five to 12 stopped speaking and remained silent for up to an entire school day. The students recently took part in Day Without Speech, in support of a programme which raises funds to bring speech therapy to Cambodians.

By participating in the challenge, students learned valuable lessons about the value of communication and it fostered gratitude and empathy for those with special needs. It provided them scope to explore their creativity in finding ways to communicate without using their voice, while also teaching them mindfulness.
