Scouting at Trinity Grammar has the honour of being one of the oldest Scouting groups in Australia. With over seventy years of Scouting within the School, the ongoing success of the Trinity Scout Group can be attributed to an exciting programme that has the boys coming back for more year after year.
It is no wonder that Trinity Grammar Scouts has always been a popular Co-curricular Activity as it represents an important component of the Trinity Triangle and the 'well-rounded' boy that both Trinity and Scouts aim to develop.
Scouting, in keeping with the general principles of Trinity's aim to provide a thoroughly Christian education for the boys, imparts knowledge and understanding of the world we live in, encourages the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and spiritual development of young people so that they take a constructive place in society as responsible citizens, and as members of their local, national and international communities.
Both Cub Scouts and Scouts experience an active involvement with outdoor activities, camps, bush walks and numerous other adventure and learning activities. These structured activities are not only fun and informative, but also are aimed at completing awards set by the Scouting Association.
By teaching positive values and leadership skills, Trinity Scouting makes a direct and positive impact on the community. Every year, Scouts and their leaders contribute thousands of volunteer hours to their local communities. Sharing time with the aged in the local community, helping with Clean Up Australia Day, Harmony Day and planting trees to help with conserving our environment are just a few examples of the commitment Scouts make to their communities.
Scouting is definitely fun, and it also prepares young people for life in the adult world by teaching responsibility for their own actions and progress. These achievements lay a solid foundation for the success of our future Australian leaders. But don't tell the kids they're learning…they think they're just having fun!
