Welcome to Trinity Catholic College Lismore – and thank you for visiting our website. Whilst this website may provide a glimpse of our College, I truly believe that you need to visit our campus, meet our wonderful students and staff, and immerse yourself in the life of the College, in order to fully appreciate the unique family spirit of Trinity.
As an independent Catholic College in the Lismore Diocese, our origins trace back to 1886 when the Presentation Sisters established St. Mary’s College, an independent school for girls. The commencement of St Mary’s, situated on the land of the Widjabul Wia-bal people of the Bundjalung nation, marks the foundation of Catholic Education in Lismore. The Marist Brothers opened St. Joseph’s High School in 1911. The two schools... operated independently until they amalgamated in 1985 to form Trinity Catholic College.
The College’s focus is inspired by our Mission Statement – “Enabling students to achieve the fullness of life” – and is therefore holistic: the spiritual formation, pastoral care and learning growth of our students are key priorities.
As a contemporary faith community, we tend to the spiritual formation of our students in a broad and inclusive way. Meditation, prayer, liturgy, masses, Religious Education lessons and community service opportunities allow our students to better understand their place in the world.
Pastoral care at Trinity is best described as a way of being rather than a structure or system. Our approach to pastoral care is highly relational, where individual students are known and valued. As a Catholic College, the dignity of each community member is paramount and informs how we interact, challenge and celebrate individual students.
Trinity Catholic College is also a place of learning excellence where student growth and personal excellence are promoted. Our Vision for Learning and Schoolwide Pedagogical Framework articulates our inclusive, challenging, engaging and relational approach to learning and teaching. This approach ensures current students achieve personal excellence and helps explain the College’s very strong academic record over time.
I am confident you will find our College an excellent choice for your child, and strongly encourage you to make contact with our Enrolment Officer to organise your tour of the College.
