What do you teach?. I’m very lucky as I have a couple of important jobs at Trinity. I spend one half of the week teaching the amazing boys in Year 5 Green. The other half of the week I’m the Director of Teaching and Learning. 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 ...

Achieving wellness in your family

Achieving wellness in your family

  1. Posted on August 22, 2019

  Disclaimer: This blog about wellness does not include any kale smoothie recipes, “expert’’ exercise or diet advice, or even a picture of me with my arms outstretched to the sky telling you how amazingly #blessed I am. If you want that I suggest you go to your teenage daughter’s Instagram feed. Instead, I’m discussing jam jars and how I use these to try to achieve wellness in my family of four kids while working full-time....

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 ...

What are you most looking forward to in 2019?. I always look forward to Term 4, not because of the approaching holidays, but because that is always the time when you recognise the great progress boys have made and there are always strong connections, basically you realise how great your class is!  On a personal note, I am really looking forward to returning to Spain and finish off the Camino ...

Instilling organisational skills

  1. Posted on May 29, 2019

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....

The Growth Mindset Revisited

The Growth Mindset Revisited

  1. Posted on May 9, 2019

If parents want to give their children a gift, the best thing they can do is to teach their children to love challenges, be intrigued by mistakes, enjoy effort, and keep on learning. That way, their children don’t have to be slaves of praise. They will have a lifelong way to build and repair their own confidence.” - Professor Carol Dweck. Last March I explored one of the current buzz phrases in education and parenting, the "Growth Mindset"....
