Middle Years Sport

A focus on skill development and participation

Physical Education and Sport play an important part in the development of all Trinity students.

Many life skills such as teamwork, cooperation with others and the ability to strive for success against difficulties are valuable lessons that the boys learn from involvement in sport. The College encourages the boys to strive for excellence and to set high goals and standards for themselves while at the same time acknowledging the efforts of those around them. Above all, we encourage participation to the best of each person’s ability, regardless of their performance level.

In Years 7-9, boys are involved in a Physical Education program which aims to develop a wide range of skills in team and individual sports. The sports covered give students exposure to a variety of activities aimed at promoting physical awareness and an interest in their own health and wellbeing. There is an option, Fitness and Health, designed to extend the boys beyond the scope of the Physical Education program. 

Trinity College is a member of the Public Schools’ Association (PSA) and participates in a year-round inter-school sports program with the six other PSA schools: Aquinas College, Christ Church Grammar School, Guildford Grammar School, Hale School, Scotch College and Wesley College. These fixtures are on a Friday afternoon and provide a great opportunity to develop wider friendships.

Each student is encouraged to be the best he can be, to acknowledge the efforts of others, to be humble in victory and gracious in defeat.
