I find myself at this stage of each school year searching for pearls of wisdom to capture the momentous time this is in the lives of our graduating Year 12 cohort, their families and you, our great teachers and support staff. Thankfully some have come my way via students and teachers on both campuses this week. These moments in the life of a school community, especially one as rich and beautiful as ours, remind us of the great joy that it is to be a part of the mission of Catholic education.
Celtic people speak about thin places. Thin places are there when the interface between earth and heaven is more transparent. And at these times, the big moments of life, the wise celts believed that heaven and earth are only three feet apart! Thomas Merton once said: “We are living in a world that is absolutely transparent, and God is shining through everything. The thing is that we normally don’t see it.”
This week, it is so important that we all take the time to seek Christ in the midst of the graduation ceremonies. These rituals are a gift to our students, their families and to us, as educators. For all the countless things you have done for these young women and men who graduate, let’s also be heartened by the words we hear echoed in this Sunday’s Eucharist:
‘Never will I forget a single thing you have done.’ ( Amos 8:7)

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.
