Principal's Welcome

Welcome to Trinity Christian School. I trust that through our online presence you will gain an insight into our community. A website can only provide a glimpse of who we are, so whether you are new to our school or already know us, you are warmly invited to visit us in person to meet our students and talk with our staff.

For almost 40 years at Trinity Christian School, we have been equipping our students to live meaningful lives beyond school. However, the true indication of a school’s quality is not in its past but in how well its students learn to have loving hearts, enquiring minds and generous spirits. These are the core aspirations we have for our students and ones which are at the core of the Christian education we provide at Trinity Christian School.

At Trinity Christian School we provide a holistic education based on biblical principles where students are nurtured in the Christian faith. Christ is at the centre of all that we do. Students are provided with opportunities to grow in faith and service within a safe and nurturing environment.

We believe that education builds capacity and that it is our team of highly qualified Christian teachers in cooperation with our parents who bring this to life in each of our students. Our aim is for students to know what they believe and why; that their character is formed on the basis of our Christian beliefs and values. Our objective is that in their life after school, our graduates reflect the hope and purposeful service characteristic of those who follow Jesus. As we equip our students for their future, we help them discover the type of purpose that ignites their desire to make a positive difference in our world.

I am proud of our students and staff and I invite you to meet them. Welcome once again.


Yours in Christ,

Ian Hewitt
Principal
