Student Development and Support

Student development and support

Undoubtedly one of Trinity College’s major strengths is our passionate staff. Our teachers, supported by a network of caring Teacher Aides, are dedicated to support and encourage every student to develop to their full potential, to discover their purpose in Christ and to aspire to be the best they can be, making positive and good choices every day.

Our Careers guidance officers and Director of Teaching and Learning provides excellent advice and guidance in the Senior Secondary student’s journey in obtaining the goals they have set for themselves.

Our Faculty leaders prepare units of work that scaffold and build on skills and knowledge that allows for student development and educational support that sets them up, for not only as 21 century learners but as lifelong learners.

 

Chaplaincy

The role of a School Chaplain is to provide social, emotional and spiritual support to students, parents and staff, taking into account the specific needs of the school.  We share God’s love, hope and good news to children by providing day to day support whether this be through one on one conversations, group activities, helping at sports day, school camps and excursions.  Our vision is to see each child and young person connected and supported in community, serving others and experiencing fullness of life. 

Primary and Secondary Students can make appointments at any time and talk about what is going on for them in a safe, confidential space.  Parents can also contact the Chaplains via the school office if they want to make an appointment with us

 

Mentorship:

Trinity fosters mentorship relationships between year 12 and Year 7 students. Year 12 mentors build a close relationship with the year 7 students by meeting them on a regular basis to provide a feeling of stability in their first year of secondary school.

Sessions are aimed to provide guidance, encouragement, and emotional support to the year 7 mentees. It also provides the Year 12 students an opportunity to grow and develop their abilities by helping others. 

Topics discussions include: Goal setting, Time management, being responsible, understanding emotions, building self-esteem, homework tips, study habits and more.
