In our latest HSC results we were among the top 155 schools in NSW, and ranked 7th regionally. One Year 12 student, Lois Segun-Beloved, achieved the highest ATAR score on the border: an impressive 99.4. She is also the only student on the border to earn an All Rounder Award for scoring a Band 6 or equivalent in all of her subjects.
We are very excited about these results as we move forward into 2021. We are launching an ambitious five-year Strategic Plan for 2021-2025 which will take the daily learning experience to the next level.
One of the most heartening stories that has emerged at Trinity in recent year is the story of our senior students who have volunteered to participate in the Rural Fire Service Cadet program. This is a specialised Co-Curricular Program offered to those students in Years 9 and 10 and helps develop critical skills in teamwork, leadership and problem-solving skills, all while building personal character and integrity. With more than 50 students expressing interest, the College was able to sign up 26 students to be mentored by brigades from Thurgoona, Splitters Creek, Lavington, Jindera and more surrounding regions.
Our Creative Pursuits program has grown this year and to date has provided more than 200 activities for Junior School students. Some of the activities have included: skateboarding, forensic science, mountain bike riding, vegetable gardening, lego, rock band, cricket, Claymation and retirement home visits.
Our students are engaged in challenging and interesting learning environments that allow them to apply knowledge, skills and critical understanding in new ways. None of this would be possible without the dedication and expertise of our Trinity staff. I firmly believe that the greatest strength of our school is the quality of its teachers and support staff.
"Thank you to everyone who is a part of our Trinity community — our students, parents and friends, families and teachers."
