Deeply saddening news

The Trinity community is deeply saddened to learn of the passing of Joshua Hardy, a Larrakia man from Darwin, and a third-year Arts student at Trinity College at the University of Melbourne.

Joshua came to Trinity in 2012 and soon became loved by all for his prowess on the footy field, his mentoring skills (he participated in the AIME mentoring program), and his community-mindedness. Josh was a wonderful student and brother whose sudden passing is a tremendous shock.

The College community, and his sister Rebecca, parents David and Milly and grandfather Peter, ask for privacy at this time.

The University and Trinity College are working together to provide counselling services to affected staff and students.


Joshua's father, David Hardy has written some loving reflections on his son's life. We invite you to read them here
