“Stop playing that game!”“Put your phone down!”“Get off the computer!” These are regular comments in many homes, including mine and those of our friends. However, through a mix of good luck and perhaps good management I haven’t had to deal with extreme online use or even anything approaching gaming addiction. I say good luck because I certainly use ...

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....
