Teaching Positions Available
Joining our team
Trinity Christian School is an independent, co-educational Preschool to Year 12 school located in the Tuggeranong Valley in Canberra. For 40 years Trinity Christian School, has been equipping 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 that are at the core of the Christian education we provide.
At Trinity Christian School we endeavour to make the link between our faith, what we do and how we teach. As a teacher at Trinity, how you teach must help our students in becoming who they were created to be in Christ. How you teach should also bring a Kingdom perspective, set students’ minds on things above, deliver meaning and show purpose.
Your pedagogy as a classroom teacher at Trinity should engage enquiring minds, build questioning, allow for grappling, exploring and reasoning. The students you teach should be given opportunities to grow and serve, so they may see who they are becoming and their purpose. As you undertake to grow your learners in both faith and learning, you must build in them the capacity to do so.
Our Strategic Priorities 2019-2022 have seen significant research, planning and change over the past few years. This work culminated in various reports such as our 2030 Learning Futures paper, which outlines our direction as a ‘Learning Centred School’ and the Relational Schools Report, which provided a clear place for student wellbeing in the school.
