It’s not the curriculum that we offer that sets us apart, it’s the manner in which it’s delivered
Any school can teach a curriculum. Amazing schools like ours are full of teachers actively and passionately exploring the possibilities of making their teaching practice more innovative, engaging and fun at every turn. This is the ingredient that drives the most growth in our students.
The success we attain is not only evidenced by the assessment data – but it’s seen through the smiles and joy we see on our student’s faces as a concept is grasped. This is the indefinable element that drives us as teachers to produce and grow our own teaching skills year in, year out.
At Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School, we are committed to supporting all students in the development of literacy skills and knowledge as they grow to become competent and confident communicators.
Holy Trinity offers a rich mathematical program that is tailored to meet every students specific needs. The mathematics program at Holy Trinity is designed using student data from a variety of testing to achieve targeted and meaningful learning.
Education in Faith
Holy Trinity Catholic Primary school is a faith community, inspired by the love of God, within the Parish of St Francis Xavier, Montmorency. Students are supported to grow in their relationship with God and to respond as active members within their community of faith.
Student Wellbeing is at the forefront of all that we do at Holy Trinity Primary school. At Holy Trinity Primary School we aim to provide a safe, nurturing, dynamic learning community that caters for the uniqueness of each student. We believe that in order for students to learn to their full potential they need to feel safe, valued and respected in their learning environment and community.
Learning and Teaching
Optimum learning occurs when teachers, working in partnership with parents, actively engage students. Best practice pedagogy underpins learning and teaching to ensure learners are able to contribute positively as global citizens.
Sport and Physical Education has a high profile at Holy Trinity. Our major emphasis is participation, enjoyment, development and sportsmanship.
The Performing Arts Program includes Music, Drama, Dance and Instrumental Focus. Each discipline has its own distinctive body of knowledge and its own elements, techniques and conventions. Students develop their literacy in each discipline which enables them to grow and to contribute to their school, community and culture.
At Holy Trinity Primary School we enable and empower students to appreciate the importance of Language Learning and an appreciation for cultural diversity. We aim for the Italian language to be visible in all aspects of school life, therefore the language will be used often within the school community and over time embedded in the home environment.
STEM education is the integration of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.
At Holy Trinity, we believe that STEM embraces the modern learner. Students are given the opportunity to work in team environments using communication, collaboration and problem solving skills while completing real-world challenges- that is, challenges that are relevant to their lives.
In 1969 we sent man to the moon. We now have a device that fits in our pocket that has more processing power than the computer they used. Therefore, at Holy Trinity, we empower our students with the skills to design, create, manage and evaluate digital concepts for current and future needs so students will be ready for the fast evolving world of digital technology.
Camps, Excursions & Incursions
To enrich students experiences and to develop their learning into real world environments, Holy Trinity students engage in a wide variety of excursions. These excursions are tied in with curriculum outcomes and are run in a variety of different areas.
Holy Trinity prides itself on supporting all students no matter what their academics needs may be. Education Support Employees (ESE) are an integral part of the staff at Holy Trinity, engaging small groups, intervention programs and one to one assistance in the classrooms.
MACS Governance Statement
Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School is a school which operates with the consent of the Catholic Archbishop of Melbourne and is operated and governed by Melbourne Archdiocese Catholic Schools Ltd (MACS).
MACS governs and operates Catholic schools in the Archdiocese to continue the mission of Catholic education to proclaim the Good News and equip our young people with the knowledge, skills, and hope to live meaningful lives and enrich the world around them.
Because the good work of educating the young is a co-responsible task led by every member of the Catholic school community, School Advisory Councils have been established to provide a crucial point of connection between the wider school community and school leaders. This governance model was designed to ease the administrative burden on our schools and parishes, allow parish priests to focus on the mission of education in the parish, enable greater collaboration between schools and ensure greater consistency in school policies and procedures.
