Tips to keep your son reading

Tips to keep your son reading

  1. Posted on October 25, 2018

I never thought I would have a teenage son who was reluctant to read books. We’d spent countless hours lying together on his bed reading Spot, Thomas the Tank Engine and later the Treehouse series and Lemony Snicket’s Series of Unfortunate Events. He loved going each year to listen to Andy Griffiths speak at Writers Festival events and would line up in long queues on hot February days to have the author sign his Treehouse books....

50 Years of PSA Sport

  1. Posted on September 5, 2018

A little bit of history.... It was in 1967, after many years of meetings and commitment by the Christian Brothers, Parents and Old Boys of CBC Perth and Trinity College that Trinity was invited to join the PSA. It was suggested to the College that they use a special PSA sporting event as their introduction into the competition, and the 1968 Athletics carnival was chosen. From the first gun-shot, ...

The assembly started with an address from our Headmaster, Mr Kenny.

What to do with our sleep-deprived sons?

What to do with our sleep-deprived sons?

  1. Posted on June 29, 2018

I asked my son what he wanted to do over the July school holidays. His response was a simple, but anxiety-inducing grumble: “SLEEP.” My mind raced to him telling me about friends who said they binge-watched Netflix shows and gamed into the early hours of the morning. I tried to think back through the past few weeks - was I always remembering to remove his devices at least an hour ...

Social Media: Setting guidelines and building digital resilience

My son won't study!

  1. Posted on May 24, 2018

I never thought it would happen to me - having a son who flatly said he couldn’t be bothered doing homework. My elder daughter had been a highly motivated “set and forget’’ student. But with my son, increasingly brutal warnings about what his future life would look like if he didn’t bother studying weren’t seeming to have much impact. I thought I had done everything ...

In 2017, Trinity expanded their STEM offerings by creating an Aviation course for Year 11 students.
