Palmer Trinity School, a collegepreparatory school in Palmetto Bay, celebrated its 40th anniversary at the end of September, beginning with a special event, “PTS Gives Back” on Saturday, Sept. 29. During the event students, faculty, staff, grandparents, alumni and friends participated in a number of community service projects, both on and off campus.
A fixture in South Dade for the past four decades, Palmer Trinity came about when two historic schools, Palmer School and Trinity Episcopal School, merged in 1992 and became the institution it is today.
“I am proud of Palmer Trinity’s commitment to service and social responsibility,” said Sean Murphy, head of school. “As we celebrate our 40th anniversary year, this special day will exemplify our school’s long-time dedication to supporting others in the Miami-Dade community.” A coeducational Episcopal day school, Palmer Trinity provides “a rigorous college preparatory curriculum that integrates knowledge, compassion and social responsibility, an essential goal of the school’s mission.” Palmer Trinity School serves students from a broad range of socio-economic, ethnic, and religious backgrounds in grades 6-12.
“This day embodies the true spirit of a Palmer Trinity School student,” said Elena De Villiers, community service coordinator. “With more than 30 student- organized service groups at PTS, our students don’t do community service because they have to — they do it because they believe it is an inherent part of their moral obligation as human beings.”
