Students are expected to participate fully in the life of the College, including liturgies, retreats and community service.

Yes, our students study Religious Education up to Year 12. The focus of Religious Education studies at Trinity is to foster in students these four aspects of human life:

  • awareness of self,
  • awareness of others,
  • awareness of the world, and
  • awareness of the faith community.

Fostering strong relationships with our families enriches our student wellbeing and achievement and keeps us informed of issues relevant to the young people who share their time between school and home.

Parents who participate in information evenings, keep up to date with College news and correspondence and attend events show their children they are interested and engaged in their success.

Occasionally the College will seek assistance with events and activities and this is a great way for parents to be involved and be an active part of the community. Keep an eye out in the College communications for information about these opportunities.

There are 25 students in a junior class with VCE and Elective classes often being much smaller. The teacher to student ratio in the College is one teacher to 12 students.

At Trinity, we understand that some children are transferring from a small school or just feeling anxious about starting at a new school that seems large and confusing.

We take the time to ensure our new recruits are feeling welcome and comfortable at Trinity before they even start. We highly recommend that Year 5 and 6 students attend our Open Day event or come along for a private tour to get to know the school a little better.

We also host a friendly and relaxed welcome barbecue at the end of Year 6 that goes a long way to soothe any concerns and students even begin to make new friends.

Orientation Day is held in early December that involves fun and get-to-know-you activities.

The Year 7 camp takes place in Week 2 and this is a very powerful and effective way for the young ones to build positive relationships that will stay with them over the next six years.

And not only that, our Year 7 Transition Coordinator spends quality time with our new students to make sure they are settling into the new environment and making friends. Along with the comfort of their Homeroom with a friendly Mentor teacher, our Year 7 students find their feet very quickly.
