Scholars’ Dinner

In keeping with Trinity College School's tradition of inviting recent graduates to speak at our Scholars’ Dinner, we are delighted to have Greg Dobney ‘01 address our scholars and parents during this special evening. Greg attended TCS for seven years, from 1994 to 2001, and was one of the first members in the revival of "Tottenham House," which is now known as the Junior School. Over the course of his time at TCS, he was involved in the rowing programme, the football team, Nordic skiing, the golf team and participated in the school musical Chess. He won an award in Littleside football (top lineman), as well as awards in both Littleside and Bigside golf. Throughout his TCS career, Greg was not only a Trinity Scholar, but also actively involved in the School and its many service programmes. At his graduation in June 2001, he was awarded the Angus and Lorna Scott award for "outstanding contribution to school life." He has many fond memories of his years in the TCS community and notes that the School has "some of the most engaging and enthusiastic teachers."

Greg attended McGill University where he earned his Bachelor of Arts degree; a double major in Psychology and Sociology. Upon graduating, he worked as a research assistant on a project studying Fetal Alcohol Spectrum Disorder. He then moved on to working as a one-on-one educator with autistic children at two different education providers in Montreal.

Greg returned to school to pursue law degree and moved to the Gold Coast in Australia to attend Bond University. After completing his first year at Bond, he successfully transferred to Queen's University in Kingston, Ontario, to complete the final two years of his degree. Upon his graduation from Queen's, Greg was awarded prizes in both Health Law and in Corporations and Taxation. He graduated this spring and is now articling with the firm Cunningham, Swan, Carty, Little and Bonham in Kingston.
