In Trinity News: The School was fortunate to host Dr Phillip Lowe, the Governor of the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA), for an economics Q&A session. The Governor was fresh from the Senate inquiry. Governor Lowe is arguably the most influential economist in Australia, and our Head of Economics, Mr Moore put it, he not only understands the history of economics but is himself making history. In such a significant time for the RBA and monetary policy in Australia, Governor Lowe generously gave his time to a small but highly engaged group of senior Economics students.
The Trinity Field Studies experience is quite unique. It is an opportunity we would not get to be part of anywhere else. It is a valuable experience for everyone who takes part in the Field Studies programme. There is a lot to learn and new things to try for all. There is much to say about my time spent at Field Studies, I had my fair share of challenges and highlights like everybody. There was also much fun to be had during our four-week stay.

In the first half of the twentieth century, a Jewish philosopher called Martin Buber wrote a book called I and Thou (you). This week at a Quad assembly, partly prompted by International Women’s Day, I attempted to explain and apply some of Buber’s insights to the context of our students. The following text is a version of that address.

It is with the utmost privilege that I write this at the conclusion of my role as School Captain. 2018 has seen the School not only build on the success of the past, but also continually adapt to be a modern educational institution.
