Posted by Trinity Grammar School on May 22, 2019 6:00:00 AM

To lead is to be able to motivate, influence, and direct others in order to work together and achieve a collective goal. Leadership isn’t reserved for grown-ups or those in prominent positions. Even from a young age, boys can develop their leadership skills and serve others. However, we understand that helping your son to become a leader can be challenging – you might not know where to begin, or what activities to encourage to enhance leadership skills in your son. To support your son to grow in this area and to flourish to his full potential, we’ve put together a list of five essential leadership skills to set your child up for life.

Head Master: Leadership opportunities at Trinity

Posted by Tim Bowden on Jul 5, 2018 6:00:00 AM

By Mr Tim Bowden, Head Master, Trinity Grammar School

As a Christian school, Trinity understands that the essence of leadership is service. Therefore, in aspiring to lead, we are aspiring to serve. Service is not always convenient, it is not always acknowledged, and it is not always enjoyable. Leadership requires us to do what is right, not what is popular, and to stand up when it would be more comfortable to stand back. Leadership roles require us to sacrifice time and to shoulder additional work. Nonetheless, service is honourable, and I am pleased that many of our young men indicate their willingness to serve in this way.

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. However, there are many subtle signs you may notice as a parent that hint to strong leadership ability.
