Facilities & Technology

The Year 7 and 8 Campus is at Regents Park, whilst the Year 9 to Year 12 Campus is located at Auburn. Strong relationships with feeder Primary Schools ensure that the continuum from K-12 becomes a reality and that the transition from Primary to Secondary School is handled with educational and social sensitivity and responsibility. The dual campus organisation also allows for the older students in Years 9-12 to be educated in an environment and learning climate appropriate to their increasing maturity. Trinity Catholic College has extensive, well-established facilities within its two campuses. These include:

  • Two comprehensive Libraries and Resource Centres
  • Specialist Visual Art, Drama and Music teaching spaces
  • Outdoor Basketball Courts and Tennis Courts
  • Technology blocks which include workrooms for Woodwork, Power Mechanics, Metal Engineering, Hospitality, Textiles, Design and Graphics
  • Chapel
  • Gym
  • Lecture Theatre

Computer and Laptop access
All students operate on a one to one laptop system, with students on both campuses having access to Wi-Fi and using their own laptops to access Wi-Fi when on campus. Teaching and learning at Trinity is focused on developing the skills and knowledge of contemporary 21st Century learners. Students will forge future careers that require sound understanding and application of online skills, and through their eLearning capabilities they will be well equipped to work in an increasingly digital workforce.

eLearning
eLearning describes a learning environment supported by continuously evolving, creative and collaborative processes. These are focused on enhancing student achievement through engagement and individualised learning opportunities.  It makes use of a range of digital technologies including computers, peripherals, communication devices and the Internet. Trinity Catholic College implements the iLE@RN model that has been developed in accordance with both the Catholic Education Office (CEO) Sydney and national documents and frameworks.

The iLE@RN model aims to:

  • Promote life-long learning.
  • Develop teachers as facilitators and co-learners.
  • Develop pedagogy that is engaging, exploratory and which includes new technologies in contemporary learning spaces.
  • Develop learning communities focused on reflective and innovative practice.
  • Engage students in decisions about their learning
  • Provide opportunities for teachers and students to be iLE@RN leaders.
  • Create partnerships, both locally and globally.
  • Develop an understanding of the ethical implications of being a global citizen.

The iLE@RN model identifies the skills which learners need to develop in their role as communicators, creators and collaborators in the local and global learning communities of today. All College Key Learning Areas incorporate eLearning strategies into their curriculum.
