By Daniel Jones, Year 3, Junior School

Growing up anywhere brings its problems, and I know that children in many other countries face problems that I couldn’t even imagine. So I’m going to be honest here … I don’t really worry about much.

An average day as a swimmer

By Trinity Year 8 student, Euan Germanos

At 4:45am the alarm goes off. I reluctantly get out from under the warm doona. The drive to school is in the dark. Not fully awake, I walk from the carpark to the pool. It is cold. I dive into the cool water at 5:30am. We follow the black line up and down – up to seven kilometres per training session.

What it means to be a school leader

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

What it means to be a school leader is a great ride of thrills and duties.

Our duties started after we went to the National Young Leaders Day. We had five speakers and two hosts there on the day. It was great fun and we were all inspired to help others and keep our duties up.

As a School Officer, my duties include: infant playground (recess and lunch), primary assembly, Leaders’ Corner and Morning Prayer.

By Trinity Year 9 student James Browning

There aren’t many schools that give Year 9 boys the experience of spending a month away from home to take on new challenges and learn to push past adversity.

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Apr 29, 2017 6:00:00 AM

NAPLAN (National Assessment Plan for Literacy and Numeracy) is an annual school assessment for Years 3, 5, 7 and 9 designed to provide information to schools and parents about how students are tracking against educational benchmarks in literacy and numeracy, and how these results track over time. NAPLAN is designed as a diagnostic tool, taking a snapshot of a moment in time, however there has been a tendency to portray it as a high-stakes examination, putting undue pressure on students, parents and in fact, teachers.
