Headmaster’s Message

PDY Headmaster Message 2019 
Trinity Grammar School, Kew has an esteemed history of educating boys that extends over 115 years. Its traditions are therefore strong, and its motto of Viriliter Agite – Act Manfully – remains the School’s guiding principle. A modern view of manfulness, however, requires much more than its traditionally ascribed characteristics of courage and stoicism.

Accordingly, Trinity prides itself on preparing boys for a self-satisfying and happy life, a life of resilience, respectfulness and fulfilling relationships; of compassion to others and contribution to the broader society and communities in which they live. In my regular contact with Trinity boys, both current and past, I am constantly inspired by their leadership, determination and drive. I am sure you will be impressed by them too.

Blessed with an outstanding staff and world-class facilities, the Trinity offering extensively covers the curricular, cocurricular, pastoral and spiritual domains. These can be appraised on other pages of this website and clearly demonstrate that the School is focussed on a holistic education for the boys in its care.

Open and honest communication is welcome at Trinity, and we genuinely encourage personal contact. Opportunities to visit the School are plentiful and we look forward to you joining us to observe our staff and students in action.

At a personal level, I am freely available to be contacted at deyoungp@trinity.vic.edu.au
