The OTGA aims to serve the interests of Old Trinity Grammarians, provide them with a network of communication, foster support for the School and to provide OTGs with ongoing employment and community service links.
Jun Kim, Hamish Webster, Tiger Lin and Lachlan Collins (all OTGs 2016) founded a not-for-profit tutoring service dedicated to supporting VCE students in regional Victoria.
Let's help out our boys in any way we can - as a tutor, a mentor, a sponsor, or just spreading the word!
HoMie is a charity which was set up by a group of OTGs, and we couldn’t be more proud of them.
Annually , Trinity hosts the Gold Mitre Lunch for all Old Trinity Grammarians who left school 50 or more years ago.
Here are a few reflections from the 2019 Lunch.
On the back of a stellar 2018 season where we had over 150 competitors, OTG Footy Tipping is BACK for 2019!
Earlier this week, the world observed International Women’s Day so this this HoOT interview is the first with one of our WoOTs. Joan’s relatives who attended Trinity include old boys from the Weatherson, Smith, Wardrop, Emmett, Martin, Young and Bright families. We’re not aware of anyone with more relatives educated at our school! When you add to this that her Uncle Fred was one of our headmasters, we suggest it allows her to claim the title of the “Grande Dame of Trinity”, not that her humility would ever let her. On winter weekends, Joan can be found pitching in and helping our OTGA football club in any way possible. Nothing would please her more than to see those efforts contribute in some small way to the clubs first A grade flag.
“Being captain not only an honour, but actually a huge task as well. You’re dealing with blokes straight out of school, not knowing what they want to do, through to people in the workforce. Getting a whole bunch of people together and having them all focus on one thing is tricky – it’s a great mix between keeping fit, training, and wanting to win, as well as having a beer and really enjoying yourself outside of it. One of the biggest things for me was when I retired, and having numerous mums actually coming up to me and thanking me for the influence I’ve had on their kids. That’s one of the greater things I’ve had in my career.”
“"My mindset across the board for teaching is to build relationships with students - if you do that, everything else falls into place, whether it be teaching, or managing behaviour, or students who are having a hard time. So I prioritised building relationships, and the banter you can have with students at Trinity is world class."
“As a kid, I was a bit of a handful - I was never going to be a prefect! I loved the school, and I never got into any real trouble, but I had times when I had to wash my mouth out with soap and water because I swore about something. I remember at one stage of the game, I had to drop my dacks and put my bum up against a brick wall in order to cool it down because it was that red after getting six of the best off Mr Leppitt!”
“When I left the Army in 2008, I went through a recruitment agency. Even at that point, I thought it would be great to have an agency that I could talk to from a soldier’s perspective - to not have to try to be a civilian person, with civilian qualifications, which at that point I wasn’t” says Glen. “After a few years in Industry I realised the importance of employers truly understanding the unique experience and skills that veterans have, to look beyond a CV".
As the Yr 12s prepare for their English exam tomorrow, we asked some of our Old Boy tutors for their advice on how to get through the exam period and deal with stress. Here’s what they had to say:
