Curriculum Overview

Home > Learning > Curriculum Overview

The aim of the teaching and learning programs at Trinity is to develop the student as a whole person. We provide opportunities for students to learn within a positive culture that values learning and the human person. In doing so, the spiritual, intellectual, physical, emotional and social dimensions of each student can be best realised.

The curriculum is divided into 11 Learning Areas with various subjects pertaining to the area.

Curriculum Handbook for 2018

Early in third term the Curriculum Handbook is published with information on subjects offered for the following year.

Students are informed about the subjects on offer via information sessions and are encouraged to seek information from their homeroom teacher, year level coordinator and subject teachers. All students, and their parents, can also seek an interview with the Deputy Principal or the Director of Learning to guide them in their subject selection.

Homework

Trinity College recognises that homework plays an important role in the learning of our students and in the partnerships shared between home and school. Learning is a lifelong pursuit and the learning that occurs at home and at school are often extensions of each other. Thorough, goal-orientated planning assists teachers in identifying the type of homework that is of most benefit to students.

Parents are vital partners in the learning process and should play an integral part in the learning experienced through homework. The role of a parent in homework is to facilitate the learning not to teach content. Parents are not expected to be content experts rather they should ensure the provision of a consistent place and time within the home for the completion of set tasks.
