“Healthy Inter-House rivalry was at the core of the Trinity College I remember. The Inter-House competitions allowed many more boys to be involved in each sport and also learn teamwork, leadership, etc. I am very happy that Trinity has been reviving the tradition of Inter-House competitions over the past few years. I wish all the Houses all the best as the Principal – despite being a Lemuelite!”
Dr Nalin Wikramanayake (Acting Principal)
