Trinity News: rhythm of LEARNING

Posted by Deborah Williams on Mar 9, 2019 6:00:00 AM

By Deborah Williams, Academic Dean

In Trinity news the recent Scholars’ Assembly formally acknowledged the most outstanding academic achievements of the 2018 Year 12 cohort across HSC and IB. It was a recognition not only of numerical results, awards and scholarships earned, but also of the deliberate commitment and effort of the students themselves, and those who joined with them in their learning, particularly parents, siblings and Trinity staff. One of the highlights of the assembly, for me, was listening to Dr De Lany interview two young men about their experience, and to what they attributed their success.

Every December the media publishes comparison tables of secondary schools in the state. However, the published school comparison tables are incomplete and provide an unfair evaluation of schools in NSW as they omit critical information and do not take context into consideration.

By Aiden Ngo, Year 5, Preparatory School

Last week, Year 5 finished the incredible journey that was Market Day. Market Day is a three-week project where we have to make a plan about how we are going to execute a market stall; creating a product to sell at the gym for a profit. We were put with people we wouldn’t normally work with so that we would experience what it feels like to work without established friends.

Trinity news: Year 5 Market Day

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Jul 14, 2018 6:00:00 AM

By Chris Wyatt, Master of the Preparatory School

 In Trinity news, Market Day was recently held at the Preparatory campus. It is one of the boys’ favourite days of the year, organised and run by Year 5. On the surface, it is a day when the younger boys can buy all sorts of homemade goodies, however, when you dig a little deeper, it becomes apparent that Market Day is far more than this. For the Year 5 boys, Market Day is the culminating experience of their International Baccalaureate (IB) Primary Years Programme (PYP) -  How We Organise Ourselves unit of inquiry that has focused on the central idea - ‘Understanding the power in trade, equips individuals with the ability to make informed decisions’.

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 14, 2018 6:00:00 AM

In recent Trinity news, 2017 graduate Brian Kim, of Baulkham Hills is the first ever Australian flautist to be accepted for under graduate study at a prestigious music school in Paris, and will be taught by Professor Phillipe Bernold, one of the world’s top flute teachers.

Still on a high from achieving 44/45 (an ATAR equivalent of 99.85) in the International Baccalaureate (IB) Diploma last year, Brian did not rest on his laurels, practising vigorously ahead of auditions for tertiary study overseas. The effort paid off with Brian being offered a position at Conservatoire National Supérieur de Musique et de Danse de Paris, to study flute. Alumni of the Conservatoire include renowned French composers Claude Debussy, Georges Bizet, Maurice Ravel and Camille Saint-Saëns.

Trinity Grammar School results are among the best on record

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Feb 21, 2018 6:00:00 AM

Sydney’s Trinity Grammar School results are among the best on record, with Year 12 graduates excelling and showing once again that the School continues to perform well above average. In 2017, an extremely impressive 25 Trinity students earned an ATAR of 99 or more.

Each year, the league table of school results provides a snapshot of the performance by schools across the State. Trinity Grammar School is one of the best schools in the nation, and the world. However, Trinity’s high performance is not reflected accurately in the publicised league tables.
