If we're sitting here a year from now celebrating what a great year it's been for you in this role, what would you say we achieved at Trinity? High demand for places at Trinity due to strong brand awareness levels and a reputation of excellence both online and offline. Public recognition of the benefits of having a Junior campus with the resources many Prep-12 schools on one campus would envy: our own art room, swimming pool, library, air-conditioned classrooms, sports grounds and more, all age-appropriate and offering a gentle passage into our Middle/Senior campus. Recognition of all that our beautiful Middle/Senior campus offers older students with the John Stapleton Sports Centre and gym, the state-of-the-art David Caldwell Trade Training Centre, the water polo purpose built pool, the amazing Visual and Performing Arts programs and facilities, and so much more.
