Head Master: The purpose of sport at Trinity

Posted by Tim Bowden on Apr 18, 2019 6:00:00 AM

By Tim Bowden, Head Master

Sport takes on different significance in different schools, and in the perspectives of different stakeholders. Sport can be an expression of the prestige of the school, through the quality of the facilities and the kit of the participants. Sport can be a proxy for the success of the school, whereby winning a sporting competition indicates that a school is superior to its competitors on a broader front. Sport can be a channel for the expression of school spirit, where the crowd of cheering supporters identify with something bigger than themselves. Sport can be an avenue to future careers for the elite, providing support and opening doors for glittering success in the years to come.

By Ben Tuxford | Director of Swimming

The 88th CAS Swimming Championships were held recently at Sydney Olympic Park Aquatic Centre. Our swim team of around 50 boys from ages 11 to 18, had been preparing for this event since being defeated by Knox in 2018, as we knew wholeheartedly that they would again be our main rivals on the night to take home the coveted Thyne Challenge Shield.  From our prior calculations, we knew it was going to be a very close point score. To bring the Shield home for the 24th time, our boys were forced to compete at their very best for each point on offer, as there would be no easy races to win.

Head Master: The Christian foundation of the School

Posted by Tim Bowden on Mar 5, 2019 6:00:00 AM

By Tim Bowden, Head Master

The guiding educational philosophy of Trinity Grammar School is Christian in its foundation and its expression. Trinity is a Christian school. More precisely, it is a school that stands in the evangelical Anglican tradition that is characteristic of the Diocese of Sydney. This Christian ethos has been consistently reinforced and adhered to by the School Council, the School’s Head Masters, and the School’s shared traditions and practices over the decades, and it is evidenced in our motto, our mission, and our educational principles.

4 Tips to encourage boys to dance

Posted by Trinity Grammar School on Jan 29, 2019 6:00:00 AM

Dance dates back to prehistoric times (and probably even further back), and is a part of almost every culture. It’s an activity that transcends time and place, and is valued the world over. It makes us feel good, allows us to express ourselves and is a great form of aerobic exercise whether you dance in front of the mirror for yourself, at an event with friends, or on a stage for the enjoyment of others.
