On the subject of education Plato is quite clear; he suggests that ‘the direction in which education starts a man will determine his future in life.’ At Trinity Grammar School, Kew we speak of the ‘Trinity Way’ a way that prepares our students to flourish in the dynamic, competitive and challenging global environment of the 21st century.
For over one hundred and ten years Trinity has been committed to providing the highest quality education to young men of Melbourne and beyond. An ethos of high expectations pervades the academic, social, emotional, physical and spiritual aspects of each boy’s educational journey at Trinity. We pride ourselves on providing our boys with the tools to graduate as independent, resilient, enquiring and faith filled men.
The outstanding, well qualified staff, acting within a thoughtful and responsive curriculum, are highly aspirational academically and socially for the boys in their care. Underpinned by strong traditions using contemporary learning spaces and methods, Trinity students are supported towards their preferred futures as people of significance, influence and service in the wider world.
Blessed with exceptional facilities, Trinity students can realise their potential in the broadest of settings, whether it is in the classroom, on stage, the sports field, at one of our three Outdoor Education facilities or within the Coordinate Program with our sister school Ruyton Girls’ School.
A school is judged by many measures and we are proud to be judged by the achievements of our students long after they have graduated. Our motto Viriliter Agite – Act Manfully – challenges each of our students to be loyal, determined, honest, persistent and humble. Plato, I believe, would think this a fine direction to start a journey to manhood.
