The education of young people today plays a pivotal role in preparing them for a world of rapid change, technology and increasing global challenges.
The contemporary world of learning and work calls for collaboration and critical and creative thinking to design solutions for the future.
A Trinity education focuses on developing the knowledge, character and skills of our students as equal and integral parts in the education of the whole person.
This equips each student with the tools of success for schooling, work and life. Educational research and future workforce studies have highlighted the importance of building, not only knowledge, but both character and skills to learn and problem solve.
The development of The Trinity Difference has been underpinned by the Victorian Curriculum General Capabilities, 21st Century Learning Design, Higher Order Thinking Skills, Habits of Mind and the latest trends in global education practices.
The Trinity Difference provides students with the skills, character and knowledge to live out our Trinity College Vision: ‘Inspired by Jesus, We Make A Difference’.
