Student Wellbeing

At Trinity, developing self-discipline is a shared responsibility that enables the growth and development of all. The opportunity to enhance personal capacity and develop socially, emotionally, spirituality, cognitively, and physically is paramount to the success our students.

Our vision-Destination Journey Success encapsulates everything we say and do at Trinity.

Trinity Primary School bases all its decisions and actions on the Gospel values.  The school motto is a key factor in all aspects of school life and permeates our relationships with each other. Trinity is a happy place: a warm and safe environment where shared beliefs and consistent expectations provide a framework for support to encourage each individual to grow and learn.

 

Trinity seeks to be a place of acceptance, affirmation and justice. We believe that bullying strikes at the very basis of these values and prevents students from reaching for excellence in every dimension of their lives. Students are entitled to receive their education free from humiliation, harassment, oppression and abuse.

 

The system of Positive Behaviours for Learning (PBL) complements the way we conduct our daily lives as people in a Catholic School.

At Trinity Primary School we believe that:

  1.  Students, staff and parents in our school:
  • should feel valued
  • have a right to feel safe and happy
  • have a responsibility for the care of others.
  1. All Students have a right to learn and all teachers have a right to teach.
    1. All staff share responsibility for all students and in our interactions we are mindful of the value of each person.
    2. Parents are the primary caregivers and the staff work to support them in the care of their children. Students are best supported when home and school work together. Parents are encouraged to make appointments to see teachers to discuss important issues.
  2. Encouragement and affirmation support positive behaviour choices.
    1. Clear and consistent expectations and consequences encourage individuals to take responsibility for their own behaviour.
  3. We believe that the behaviour is unacceptable when it:
  • interferes with the rights of others
  • is dangerous to self, others or property
  • is inconsiderate or offensive.
  1. When dealing with inappropriate behaviour we use logical consequences (where possible) rather than punishment. Trinity does not permit corporal punishment of students attending this school. Trinity does not explicitly or implicitly sanction the administering of corporal punishment by non-school persons (including parents) to enforce discipline at this school.

 

Our mission as members of Trinity community is a commitment to the growth of all that are involved in the community.  We achieve this growth and sense of community through accepting and supporting each other. This enables us to be witnesses of the values we hold as Christians.
