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 ...

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 ...

On her time at Trinity. My association with Trinity College started back in 1987 when my first son joined in Year 4. I knew nothing about the school. Simon Katich’s mother told me that they were looking for boys to fill the Year 4 classes and after an interview in November, my eldest son Simon started the following year, so it all happened very quickly. My son Thomas later joined in 1990, ...

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....

In his own words.... I consider myself extremely lucky to be part of the education system administered by the Christian Brothers. My colleagues and I had (and still have) great admiration for the Brothers who taught and guided us in the years from 1945-49. They were fine men and obviously good teachers both academically and on the sporting field. In the academic sphere, in our small leaving ...

Mr John Brophy ('41) has been a staunch supporter of CBC and Trinity through the years, and has been instrumental in making the College the amazing institution it is today.

In 1986 he became the first Chairman of the Trinity College Board of Management where he served until 1991....
