Practices Based on the Values of the Gospel
At Trinity College Colac, we believe that the discipline policy and practices should be developed from our belief that the values of the Gospel will permeate all that we do in the name of education. We are endeavouring to promote an environment that is secure, healthy and respectful for all members of the school community. We also believe that the responsibility for the growth and development of each child is a partnership between teachers, parents and children. Consequently, our Behaviour Management Policy recognise that the members of the school community have certain rights and therefore responsibilities to uphold the rights of others, within the school.
At Trinity College Colac the procedures used to maintain a disciplined, yet secure, healthy and respectful community, will assist in protecting the rights of each member, and prevent behaviour that is inappropriate and likely to lead to future problems. We aim to promote self discipline and positive approaches to the development of acceptable behaviour in students. A united and consistent approach to discipline by staff members and parents will ensure the implementation of the policy.
All students of Trinity College should show their belonging and loyalty to their school community by wearing the full and correct school and sporting uniform with pride. The uniform is to be worn between home and school, in class and on other occasions as required. When wearing the College uniform, students must ensure their uniform is neat and correct, whether on or off campus.
Students are not permitted to attend class unless in full and correct school uniform.

As a Catholic educating community, Trinity College has developed its disciplinary policies and procedures with the intention of developing all dimensions of the whole student. The implementation of these policies takes into account the wellbeing of students. In the event of student misbehaviour, it is expected that parents will accept the disciplinary policies and procedures of the school and will support Trinity College in the setting of logical consequences for students.
