Physical Education and Sport play an important part in the development of all Trinity students.
Many life skills such as team work, co-operation with others and the ability to strive for success against difficulties are valuable lessons that the boys learn from an 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. Trinity prides itself on the conduct and sportsmanship of our boys on the sporting field, and we have high expectations that our standards are maintained at all times. This includes dress and behaviour standards, accepting decisions of umpires and accepting victory or defeat graciously.
Physical Education is an integral part of the Junior School Curriculum. During the weekly sessions the students are involved in a range of activities that develop their skills and fitness level in a wide variety of sports. Participation, enjoyment and good sportsmanship are the main priorities.
Each student will take part in one aquatics lesson per week. A variety of water based activities are undertaken during the course of the year. Students must wear Trinity bathers for these lessons.
Much of the sport played within the Junior School is underpinned by our House System. Each boy is placed in a house (QUEENS, XAVIER, CHANEL and CAMPION) in his first year at the College. Throughout their years in the Junior School, boys will be aligned to this house in the many carnivals and sporting fixtures within the College.
Trinity Junior School is a member of the JPSSA and participates in an interschool sporting program for much of the year. Sporting fixtures are scheduled each Thursday afternoon.
