Junior School

The word ‘education’ comes from the Latin ‘educere’ = e- (out of) + -ducere (to draw).

The Junior School at Trinity Anglican College has a committed staff with a passion for each student’s development both educationally and socially. We encourage the children to develop the ability to think for themselves, build confidence, have-a-go and learn how to relate to and show respect for others.

The Junior School caters for individual developmental needs and focuses on all key learning areas, with a particular focus on Literacy and Numeracy skills. Specialist teachers in Music, French and Physical Education collaborate with classroom teachers so that integrated learning takes place. All students are introduced to and encouraged to use technology. Students from Year 4–6 have specialist staff teaching Visual Arts, Technology and Drama.The students in the Upper Junior School have the opportunity to demonstrate responsibility and initiative by taking on leadership positions as School, Chapel, and SRC Leaders and House Captains.The Junior School provides opportunities for a wide range of co-curricular activities which inspire learning and teamwork. We believe all students are capable of success and want the children to find the processes of growing up and learning fun.

Trinity has a tradition of young people reaching for their best and inspiring greatness in one another. In an increasingly complex world, Trinity provides a strong community where young people are not only engaged in creativity and innovation but also embody compassion and service.

Co-curricular Opportunities.


At Trinity, we believe in providing endless opportunities for our students. Co-curricular education creates well-rounded students and individuals with a deeper understanding of their own passions and interests.

Junior Curriculum

Our student centred curriculum ensures that each child is engaged, inspired, challenged and nurtured. Our curriculum merges traditional academic subjects with equally important practical, spiritual and creative learning that develops critical thinking, discovery through experience and inspires innovation. Our philosophy is built on and committed to a global enriched curriculum where as educators we deliver the curriculum in dynamic and interactive environments that empower and challenge our students whilst fostering their learning journey in a joyful and celebrated environment.

At Trinity, our pedagogy is focused on the acquisition of subject-specific skills through explicit instruction and personalized, direct teaching and learning experiences. These skills are engaged and extended upon by rich and authentic content that empowers students to utilise these skills by applying their understanding in real world contexts.

The core curriculum includes English, Mathematics, History, Geography, Science, Technology, Health Education, Music, the Arts, Physical Education and Religious and Values Education (RAVE). From Year 4 on, the curriculum is further enhanced with the students experiencing additional specialist subjects including French, Next Generation Learning (STEM) and Drama.

There is a high academic expectation of our students. Systems are in place to assist students in achieving their academic potential and to prepare them for tertiary studies or the workplace.There are a range of leadership opportunities for students.

From Term 4 of Year 11, students have the opportunity to apply for a position as a Prefect.We offer places in six classes at Year 7 level each year, giving priority to students in Year 6 at our Albury Campus. Our College is still growing, and in 2020 we will have six Pastoral Care classes in all senior Year levels.

Founders Centre

The Founders Centre is a four-laboratory science centre catering for biology, chemistry, physics and general science. Biology and science students also often use the green belt on two boundaries of the College to extend their learning.

Trade Skills Centre

The Trades Skills Centre incorporates two workshops and a technical laboratory with a range of specialist equipment such as 3D printers, a laser cutter, milling machine and vacuum former. Students working in this Centre have access to computers loaded with specialist design software and it also is home to our robotics program.

Pastoral Care

Our priority at Trinity Anglican College is to provide a supportive, nurturing and challenging environment so that our students can thrive academically, spiritually, culturally, physically and socially.

Trinity prides itself on its positive and genuine relationships which exist between students and their teachers, and teachers and parents. At Trinity, these relationships form the foundation of everything we do as a learning community.In the Junior School, the pastoral care and well being of students is catered for by the individual Class Teachers.

When students progress to the secondary years, they are allocated to a Pastoral Care Group whose interests are looked after by a House Mentor. The Class Teachers in the Junior School and the House Mentors in the Senior School have the immediate responsibility for the academic and general progress of their students and are parents’ first point of contact with the College.

The respective senior staff—the Dean of Student and Staff Well Being and the Head of School work closely with the Class Teachers and House Mentors to get to know their students and through this relationship, become more aware of their needs.
