Senior School

We hold the belief that education should nurture personal development, equipping our students to graduate from the College as mature, responsible, critical, discerning, and compassionate individuals, poised to become a positive and influential presence in the adult world. Our focus is on developing a love of learning which will last a lifetime.

We believe in a well-rounded education that challenges students spiritually, emotionally, intellectually, physically, and socially. Our approach is guided by key principles that underpin effective learning:

  • Every child can learn.

  • Every child needs to cultivate a positive mindset and self-concept.

  • Every child requires strategies to support their learning and foster independence.

  • A resilient mindset and effective learning skills should become ingrained habits.

  • Learning is an active process, with children actively engaged rather than passively receiving information.

  • Personalisation of learning, taking into account individual interests, learning styles, aptitude, and ability, is essential.

To support students' learning and search for meaning, Trinity aims to:

  • Begin lessons with clear purposes or intentions for learning.

  • Engage students by fostering respectful and positive relationships with teachers, establishing trust.

  • Create stimulating learning experiences that connect to students' lives, expanding their perspectives.

  • Establish connections between new learning, prior knowledge, and future learning.

  • Develop critical and creative thinking skills.

  • Cultivate core literacy and numeracy skills, as well as essential ICT skills, with a focus on vocabulary development.

  • Encourage reflection on what has been learned.

  • Use humour to inspire joy and enthusiasm for learning.

  • Provide scaffolding and visual aids to help students organise and make meaning of their learning experiences.

  • Offer opportunities for exploration, experimentation, and practical application of knowledge.

  • Provide feedback, both spoken and written, from teachers and peers, to motivate ongoing learning.

Our approach to learning is supported by our Learning Management System: SEQTA, which facilitates effective communication, collaboration, and organisation.

Critical and Creative Thinking
Digital Learning
Responsive Learning and Teaching

Critical and Creative Thinking

We foster imagination, investigation, and problem-solving skills to cultivate critical and creative thinking.

Students are encouraged to brainstorm ideas, explore, plan, trial, implement, question, and evaluate, developing effective communication, decision-making, and problem-solving abilities. Real-world contexts and problems combined with imagination form the foundation for learning from mistakes and finding innovative solutions.

Throughout this process, students develop responsibility for their own learning, gradually becoming independent thinkers.

Digital Learning

Our Digital Learning Program, implemented across the Primary and Secondary Schools, equips students with essential 21st-century skills.

We recognise the importance of coding and digital literacy, enabling students to navigate and manipulate the virtual world of the future.

Responsive Learning and Teaching

We understand that students have diverse needs and abilities. Therefore, our learning and teaching approaches are responsive and flexible.

Students may have opportunities for choice in their learning, designing their own activities. Teachers may also assist students by utilising diagrams and visuals to enhance understanding, critical thinking, and planning. Feedback from teachers plays a crucial role in guiding students towards improvement. Our curriculum, instruction, and learning modes are personalised to meet the unique needs of each student.
