Describe your experience at Trinity College. I have experienced Trinity College as a student, teacher and parent. All of these roles validated Trinity to be a very positive learning environment which has grown substantially over the years. The many friendships formed and rich diverse nature of families that make up the community add to the uniqueness of a Trinity educationMy first teaching appointment ...

Describe your experience at Trinity College. My experience at Trinity is ongoing as I find new connections to the TC Spirit every day. Being a part of Trinity College has given me opportunities to meet people that have made my life fulfilling – I have always felt that I was part of something more than just a school. I felt connected to the TC Spirit from my first day at Trinity, and now I meet others almost weekly who share that spirit....

Describe your experience at Trinity College. I had a really enjoyable time at Trinity and being sports minded it accommodated me very well, while at the same time affording me the opportunity to produce scholastic results (which on reflection I didn’t take advantage of as well as I should have.) What path did your life take after you left Trinity College?. After I left Trinity I picked ...

Mr Timothy Hammond ('92). Quite simply, my time at Trinity was an experience that set me in good stead for my future. I think it was a perfect mix, in that I was encouraged to do well, I learned resilience and I made life-long friends. My closest mates to this very day are my friends I made as a young man at Trinity College. My time at Trinity helped define my values and it honed my passion for social justice....

The right place at the right time. In 1967, as a 12 year old boy at Gosnells Primary School, attending the local Salvation Army Church, due to my parents being members of that Protestant outlier, I never envisaged attending any high school other than the local Armadale High School. But sometimes time, space and events all interact and determine outcomes. In my case, Trinity College was to join the PSA in 1968, the year I was to begin my high school years....

 . On CBC.... My family moved into a new house in Northwood Street West Leederville, so I then attended the West Leederville State School. I didn’t like it there and was always getting into fights! My father, who was a policeman, thought I might benefit from some ‘guidance’ by the Brothers! So off I went, firstly to St Pat’s, which was on the corner of Wellington ...

His time at CBC. I still remember vividly where I sat in that first class at the rear of the classroom which adjoined the tennis court which ran alongside Victoria Avenue. In this first class I was placed in a group comprising Dennis Rees, Gulio Aiberti and John Murphy. I was a natural fit with the first two as we had been classmates back at St Josephs. Many a shirt and thigh were the target ...

Describe your experience at Trinity College. I have been fortunate to have experienced the culture and depth of Trinity College as a student (1967-74); as a member of staff (1985-99) and as an active member of the Trinity Old Boys Association (TOBA). I was very excited to apply and be appointed Bursar in 1985 at the relatively young age of 27. Apart from playing the odd game of squash in the old ...

On his time at Trinity.... I came to Trinity in Year 10 and my initial impression was that it was a very welcoming place. My father was an old boy, and after a less than great experience at my previous school, the Principal at the time, Tony Curtis, welcomed me with open arms. I knew the school had a good sporting program, and I was proud to be a part of the 1st Water Polo team in Year 10. Unfortunately, I lost almost all my vision towards the end of Term 1 of Year 10....

Trinity and beyond. My experience at Trinity was a very positive one. I started in 1984 and finished in 1992 and the friendships I formed during those years are still very strong today. I loved the balance between education, religion and sporting activities that the school provides and feel extremely lucky to have had such a great environment for learning and social development. When I graduated ...

Trinity and beyond . Overall my time at Trinity was a happy time. Outside of the academic and sporting environment, I really appreciated the opportunities I had to develop leadership skills. In my last two years in particular Br Siebert was a great mentor as we worked together on social programs such as, “Freedom from Hunger”. These leadership skills proved critical to my future career....

In his own words... How sad, yet apt, that I should write these comments as one of the Voices to celebrate Trinity's 125th Anniversary in the same week that we have buried Brother Geoff Seaman, certainly the most profound influence on me during my schooldays at Trinity. Brother Seaman, or "George " as we boys knew him, taught me the life lesson that has stayed with me and sustained me more than once on the "dark night of the soul....
