At Trinity, we seek to grow exceptional young men. We recognise that each person entering this community has individual gifts and talents that we need to bring out and develop. No one person is the same as another and we strive so that all can be exceptional, but exceptional in their own way, pursing their passions across a broad range of activities in academics, drama, music, outreach, outdoor education and many other co-curricular offerings. An Open Day is usually held late in Term One.
Facilities: The school, founded in 1902, has five campuses: the academic campus is in Kew; there are first-class playing fields at Bulleen; an outdoor education centre at Lake Eppalock near Bendigo; and camps at Licola in Gippsland and at Lake Nillahcootie near Mansfield.
