Our Trafalgar spirit is a great teacher. It teaches our girls that there is something bigger than the self and a greater good to strive toward. It teaches compassion for others and understanding of differences. It teaches confidence, as girls are willing to try new things within an encouraging environment. It teaches the skills of cooperation and collaboration in building a respectful and positive climate for all.
As a school, we also know that school spirit supports academic success. Educational research clearly indicates that emotional wellbeing lies at the heart of achievement. Our girls do their best here because they feel their best here.
Our spirit of encouragement and togetherness is evident every day, from the tone our teachers set in the classroom to the way our girls support one another in all areas of school life. This is a place where it’s okay – even fantastic! – for girls to get good marks, lead the way, win the game, try something new, be different… or just relax and take a break sometimes.
You will see this special Trafalgar spirit during spirit days and House competitions where the girls are engaged, involved, dressed up and celebrating one another. Our school spirit shines in every girl and is highly contagious!
