Educating For the Future

The learning culture at Trinity is one that focuses on teaching to the individual needs of each child, where the children are encouraged to take the ‘next step’ in their learning.

At Trinity, we believe that:

  • there is diversity in any learning community and we acknowledge multiple pathways for learning
  • learners need to engage in meaningful, relevant tasks
  • learners need scaffolding to support their learning
  • learners need planned, regular opportunities to have processes explicitly modelled to them; engage in processes with an expert guide and to engage in the processes independently (practice): TO: WITH: BY.
  • learners need quality feedback
  • learners need to be involved in decision-making and making judgements about the quality of their learning
  • there are significant milestones/evidences of growth in the learner, which informs teaching
  • involvement of parents and communication with them is critical for successful teaching and learning.

At Trinity, we understand that the three areas which really make a difference to student learning outcomes (that is, which enhance effective teaching), are:

  • Focused teaching based on the needs of the children
  • High expectations
  • Uninterrupted time for learning.

As a school we ensure that prime learning time, particularly the first two hours of the morning, is free from interruptions to learning where possible. Uninterrupted time for Learning is a school policy. Our school also has an emphasis on actively engaging students in learning by utilising 21st Century learning technology. We believe that, in educating for a post-industrial knowledge and digital society, the developments of generic outcomes are important goals if our children are to become discerning knowledge navigators. Our challenge always is to contextualise and ground these competencies in our Catholic faith and tradition.

Examples of these competencies include the ability to:

  • collect, analyse and organise information
  • communicate ideas and information effectively, using a range of spoken, written, graphic, and non-verbal forms of communication
  • plan and organise
  • work with others in teams
  • use mathematical ideas and techniques
  • solve problems by thinking critically and creatively
  • use Web 2.0 technology.

These generic competencies cross curricular boundaries. We strive to find a balance between independence and interdependence in our teaching.

Our Catholic faith lights the way as we guide your child’s learning journey. We are led by love, compassion and respect for all.
We walk with Jesus and with those in need, both at school and in the community. Together in Christ, we will change the world.
We see the good in each child. Every child deserves to be safe, known and cared for. Every child can learn lots, grow as a person and be happy.

Here’s what we think about learning

Let’s work together

Every child’s learning journey begins at home. We’ll work with you to make sure that your child is on track at school too. This means getting to know your child well, especially what gets them excited about learning.

Like you, we understand that great teachers make a real difference in a child’s life. That’s why we’ll make sure that your child’s teachers are skilled up and supported by an effective Principal with a passion for learning and caring.

Our teaching is up-to-date

Our children’s adult lives will be very different from our own. Technology is changing everything including the way they will work. To prepare them for whatever that future holds, our school has had to change and will need to keep changing.

Learning today is so much more than facts and figures. Information will be coming at them from everywhere so they need to learn to make sense of it all and the world around them. We’re focused on developing strengths that students need now and in the future - communication, collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and so much more.

  • We’ll work with your child to find out what interests them and show them ways to learn more.
  • We’ll use real world problems to show how the skills we learn at school are relevant for life.
  • We’ll work closely with your child as they learn to take responsibility for learning too.

It’s a great start to a lifelong learning journey. And our teachers are lifelong learners too!

This is how we do it

So much more is being asked of teachers today. Not only will teachers get to know your child’s needs, they’ll change their teaching approaches to meet them where they’re at. This means teachers need to be ready to share skills with students, help students plan their learning, track how each student is progressing, and respond with extra support as needed. After all, learning how to learn is even more important than what we learn.

We’re supporting your child’s learning

Our school is a place where curiosity, imagination and love of learning are treasured. We know schools should be places of wonder, exploration and endless possibilities. Our school is full of great teachers working together to meet your child’s needs in spaces that are designed for up-to-date learning. There are places for students to work together and for working independently. They are places where the latest technology supports your child’s learning.

We’ll make this work for you and your child

Every child is different and so is their learning journey. Teamwork between our school and families, expert staff, state-of-the-art technology, well-designed facilities, and a can-do attitude help us to meet your child’s needs better. Our school is a community of learners, thinkers and achievers. It is a safe place for each child to belong, make friends and be cared for.

Let’s keep talking!

We’ll take every opportunity to talk with you about your child’s learning. The best learning happens when there’s a strong partnership between home and school. We know you want to know how the learning works, and we’ll keep you updated when it’s working well for your child and when it’s not. After all, we’re all in this together.


We put students at the centre of all we do
