How creative skills can enhance academic results

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Nov 10, 2017 6:00:00 AM

Sir Kenneth Robinson, British author, speaker and international advisor on education in the arts, made a powerful point that many students in school today will get jobs that haven’t even been created yet. Although he made this point over ten years ago, it is as valid today as it was then.

Exploring career options can be a time of great deliberation for your son, and he will inevitably look to you for advice and support. While some boys have known what they want to do for work from a young age, others might need more time and research to decide.

What are the main challenges facing teachers?

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Sep 28, 2017 6:00:00 AM

It cannot be denied that teaching is a rewarding yet challenging career. It demands broad knowledge of subject matter, curriculum, and standards; enthusiasm, a caring attitude, and a love of learning; knowledge of discipline and classroom management techniques; and a desire to make a difference in the lives of young people.

At Trinity, our teachers are passionate, engaging and committed to their profession. As parents we don’t often get an insight into the vast and varied tasks that teachers undertake behind the scenes. It is easy to forget that the fun and engaging activities that our children enjoy in the classroom are the result of planning, lifelong learning, and experience that is juggled with many administrative tasks.
