Describe your Trinity College experience.... Trinity has certainly given me more than I have given it. Not only are my four boys, Ethan, Luca, Zach and Levi getting a well-rounded and diverse education, but through the honour of being the Trinity Auxiliary President, I have made some wonderful friendships. Taking on this role and thinking that I would just be making tea and coffee, I underestimated how important it was to become to me....

How long have you been teaching at Trinity College?. I’ve been teaching at Trinity College for 32 years. When I started at Trinity in 1987, I told my partner with some disbelief that there were teachers at Trinity who had been there for over 10 years, now she takes great delight in reminding me how long I’ve been here. It is a bit of a worry that I am now teaching the sons of students who I taught when I started at Trinity....

“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....

Before we look at some practical tips for wrangling our boys into being organised human beings, it’s worth being reminded of an old aphorism: “We love our boys and raise our girls.” Michelle Obama restated this in a 2017 interview, and further observed: “We raise (girls) to be strong, and sometimes we take care not to hurt men — and I think we pay for that a little bit....
