There are many reasons why parents pick our School and you can read
and watch them here. But the main ones are:
Helping parents as the primary educators of their boys
Parenting isn’t simple, straightforward or easy. Parents are the primary educators of a child. For our parents, Trinity is their chosen partner in this endeavour. There is a mutual recognition of the School’s expertise and professionalism, and of the parents’ responsibility. It’s a team effort. Our parents choose Trinity because the investment we make in the education, character and development of their boys is akin to their own.
Supporting boys in realising their goals
We believe Trinity boys have agency in their education. It is not done for them, or to them, but with them. As they grow from early childhood to adulthood, they take on increasing responsibility for their education. That is one reason why Trinity has increasing choice available as the boys get older, either with reference to subject choice and co-curricular participation. By the end of the journey through school, Trinity students will have some idea of the goal of their education.
Achieving the final credential in school education
Whether it is the Higher School Certificate (HSC), the International Baccalaureate Diploma or a Trinity VET qualification, achieving a final credential is one very obvious reason why parents choose Trinity. The achievement of this credential opens the doors of opportunity in a Trinity boy’s next chapter, so its importance is not to be understated. However, it is misplaced to think that schools are all about the final academic result.
Providing challenging, stimulating learning in a safe, supportive environment
The school experience of a boy at Trinity is not just a means of gaining a mark; the journey is the fabric of his life for years. The Trinity experience is challenging and stimulating, it broadens a boy’s horizons, and it takes place in a safe and supportive environment. What he experiences at Trinity prepares him for life outside of school.
Helping grow young men of character
Informed by our Christian ethos, we partner with families to help raise young men who embody trustworthiness, decency and respect. If a young man is trustworthy, he will be able to engage in rich and rewarding relationships. If he is decent, equipped with a moral compass that orients him to the service of others and the use of power and responsibility for good, he will make a positive difference in our world. If he is respectful, recognising the value and dignity of others, he will conduct himself in ways that make all of us proud.
