Deciding to give back via a bequest

An easy way to contribute to Trinity scholarship funds is to build your donation into your Will. Old Boy, Mr Craig Moore (‘74) has done just this, and is confident that the decision is what’s best for his finances now and best for the School into the future.

“I had a wonderful School career,” he says. “Going through, I embraced everything at the School. I was very struck by the complete man, the renaissance man, the triangle – mind, spirit, body – not just one-dimensional.”

Mr Moore certainly embraced everything that came his way, making a name for himself on the Rugby field, in the Swimming pool, in Drama productions, the Cadets and, perhaps most notably, as School Captain in his final year.

“I just love the place. I loved every minute of School and I was determined that if I had a son, he would come here, which he did, and he also has the same opinion,” he says, full of pride.

Growing up, Mr Moore knew that his parents were struggling to send him and his brother to Trinity – and his sister to MLC – but he admired how they managed it anyway. When he was eventually awarded a scholarship, he knew he was easing the burden.

I had such a wonderful time here and so did my son – I wanted to give back. For me, it’s about growing the funds where the School can offer scholarships and bursaries for deserving boys who otherwise wouldn’t be able to come. Those boys can get the education that
I had.”
