Trinity students immerse themselves in China

Posted by Phyllis Bookluck on Feb 11, 2017 6:00:00 AM

Ten Trinity students of Chinese from Years 10 to 12, accompanied by two members of staff, bid farewell to their families during the early hours to spend 25 days in the capital of the oldest civilization in the East.

The long flight to Beijing and the cold weather did not diminish the excitement of the group. By the time they arrived at Renda Fuzhong, it was already quite late in the evening. After the dormitory rooms were allocated, they had only 20 minutes before the hot water was turned off for the evening. The rooms were plain and the beds were firm but cosy and warm.

At its’ core, diversity is about justice and fairness and removing the artificial barriers to opportunity provided by such indicators as race, ethnicity, gender and socio economic status. We all agree that without such barriers the world has an opportunity to put an end to the terror that greets us nightly on the news. But how do we move beyond the rhetoric and bring about meaningful and lasting diversity?

Why commemorating our Anzacs is important in education

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 11, 2016 6:00:00 AM

Dawn on 25 April marks the time when Australian and New Zealand forces landed north of Gaba Tepe on the Gallipoli Peninsula. They met fierce resistance from the Ottoman Turkish defenders, along with the odd German advisor. News of the landing at Anzac Cove had made a profound impact on Australians at home, and 25 April soon became known as the day it is today - a day when Australians remember the sacrifice of those who had died in war.

The story of Anzacs is one that all students know well. What had been planned as a bold stroke to knock Turkey out of the war quickly became a stalemate, and the campaign dragged on for a further eight months. At the end of 1915 the allied forces were evacuated, after both sides had suffered heavy casualties and endured great hardships (over 8,000 Australian soldiers had been killed).
