Trinity News : April 2013
2 TRINITY NEWS When one thinks of a school, obviously the students, staff and head master come to mind. Further reflection, however, brings up thoughts of the parents and friends and various auxiliaries, but it is perhaps safe to say that one of the last groups considered is the school council! And yet, it is this group of people which is the mainspring of the school. In the case of Trinity, it is most certainly so. One hundred years ago, on the 30 January 1913, a group of men met under the aegis of the Reverend George Chambers, Rector of Dulwich Hill Church, and established Trinity Grammar School. The subsequent one hundred years saw the members of the School Council guide the School through many trials and tribulations, such being detailed in other publications, enabling it to become the great School it is today. It is to these men and women and their devotion over the years that we owe so much. The purpose of this short report is to record the meeting of the present School Council, on 30 January 2013, one hundred years to the day from the very first Council meeting, and to acknowledge the tradition of outstanding devotion and service which they carry on. Detur Gloria Soli Deo. | Ron Ogier On Sunday 3rd February, 2013, to mark the actual date of our birthday, when the first students gathered at Holy Trinity Dulwich Hill for their first lessons, I called into the Boarding House to celebrate the occasion with the Boarders, marking it with three birthday cakes! On Monday 4th February, as the nearest School day, we celebrated the School’s one hundredth birthday by handing out gifts. The staff received a Centenary tie or scarf and students were presented with a Centenary lapel pin. Before the day ended, we also distributed a copy, for each family, of Trinity Grammar School - A Centennial Portrait, a most attractive publication, wonderfully written by our Head of History, Dr Jonathan Harris, who was so well supported by Ms Alison Field, our School Archivist. I trust all families will take the opportunity during the year ahead, to “dip into” this insightful and revealing reflection of the School’s first 100 years as it attests clearly to God’s providence in the establishment and development of our fine School.
