Boys, books and the battle to read

Boys, books and the battle to read

  1. Posted on June 24, 2020

As parents and educators, we intrinsically believe that reading is key to educational success.. It is a truism that academic success correlates with those who are regular, if not avid, readers. Such reading goes beyond the mechanics of functional literacy, however, instead reflecting a deep immersion in literature, which, in turn, fosters an understanding of how language, and the texts it creates, function....

Back on Ash Wednesday, Pope Francis’s call for Catholics to give up posting harmful words online during Lent appeared to be a great challenge for the digital age, especially for kids, to undertake during the traditional fasting period. The Pontiff said we lived in an "atmosphere polluted by too much verbal violence" which was "amplified by the internet". If you spend a few minutes on any social ...

In this role, I primarily work on staff development and helping Trinity teachers to be the best 21st-century educators they can be. I run a variety of different ...

If you want that I suggest you go to your teenage daughter’s Instagram feed.

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....

I remember when my parents received the letter to say I was accepted into Year 8 at Trinity. As a family, we didn’t seriously entertain any other high school options, so I was both excited and relieved. My introduction to the College was one of awe, it was so much bigger than my primary school and there were so many more students.  Having the Christian Brothers’ as teachers made a positive impression on me....

“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 ...
