Welcome to Trinity!

Welcome back to the new Term! I hope you were able to spend quality time with family and friends during the recent vacation!

By now, you would have received news of my appointment as Regional Director (NSW/ACT) for Marist Schools, Australia. I am humbled to be taking on this role and am looking forward to continuing to work with Marist communities, including our great Trinity community, in the future. Thank you to the many people who have extended their best wishes to my family and I. I am grateful for your kind support and ask that you keep me in your prayers.

The process for the appointment of a new Principal for the College will begin shortly. Sydney Catholic Schools will facilitate this consultation and appointment process and I am confident that this will lead to the appointment of a wonderful leader for this community, commencing in 2017.

We extend our very best wishes to Year 12, 2016 as they commence the HSC. This cohort of students is one of the best prepared and most settled I have seen, and we encourage them to have confidence that they will do well! Please keep these wonderful women and men in your prayers. We also thank our teachers for their preparation of this cohort. This preparation included the two-week holiday study program at the College, staffed by teacher volunteers. Thank you to our teachers for your generosity.  

As we gathered this morning with Year 12 for their first HSC examination, as is our tradition, we prayed with them and for them. The prayer we shared was a bookmark of St Teresa of Avila, herself a great scholar of our Church. It is timeless and its message is even more applicable for our young people and our own children today:

“Let nothing disturb you,
Let nothing frighten you,
All things are passing away:
God never changes.
Patience obtains all things.
Whoever has God lacks nothing;
God alone suffices.” 
― St Teresa of Ávila

My best wishes for the Term ahead.

Mr. John Robinson

Genuinely Catholic and Proudly Marist

Trinity Catholic College takes its name from the heart of our Catholic faith, affirming our belief in God as Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Our crest and motto celebrate our belief in the risen Jesus whose presence we encounter and celebrate in our Australian context.  We proudly embrace the spirit of Saint Marcellin Champagnat as a Marist school, and provide a Catholic education ‘in the way of Mary’.


Excellence in Learning and Teaching

Our vision that students are safe, happy, well taught and learn to know and love Jesus underpins our rich and varied curriculum.  Beginning in Year 7, all students experience learning in a calm, well-ordered, safe and happy community.  An emphasis on each student’s achievement of excellence through hard work, affirmation and personal challenge, and the building of strong relationships with our dedicated, passionate teachers, have led to Trinity’s outstanding success.

These successes include:

  • 81% of HSC Courses above state average – 2015.
  • We celebrate our ongoing and proven success as one of Sydney’s highest performing Systemic Catholic schools.
  • On average, 86% of all HSC courses for the last five years above state average.
  • 87% of our students gained university entry – 2015.

In 2015 our results were once again outstanding with:

  • 81% of HSC courses above state average;
  • 73 Band 6’s and E4’s;
  • 333 Band 5’s and E3’s

Our results speak for themselves!

For more information please do not hesitate to contact the College.
