"You're braver than you believe, stronger than you seem and smarter than you think."
- Christopher Robin
Year 6 is the first year of middle schooling on the Ashmore Road campus, home to our middle and senior years. Our dedicated middle school provides a supportive link between the primary and senior school years. Students in the middle years have their own dedicated buildings which allow us to open up new learning opportunities by offering students greater choice in subjects and facilities.
In the middle school our teachers understand the developmental characteristics that are typical of young adolescents as they deal with a time of exceptional physical, social and emotional growth and change. Teachers provide effective teaching, learning and assessment strategies across the curriculum. We focus on an engaging teaching and learning program and provide learning environments that are inviting, supportive and safe.
We promote in depth learning and work to enhance students’ physical and emotional wellbeing. We also encourage family involvement by establishing strong home and school links.
Our programmes in the middle years build confidence, promote positive attitudes and behaviours and motivate students to achieve their best academically, socially, culturally and in sporting areas.
Trinity offers private bus services to its families, including a bus service that runs between the Cotlew and Ashmore campuses both mornings and afternoons to facilitate a one-stop drop for families with children at both campuses.
Personalised Learning Pathways to Success
Trinity Lutheran College works with each child’s unique skillset, abilities and interests to develop the most appropriate learning path for them. We want every child to achieve their goals, and as they move towards their Senior years, it’s vital that they are set on the right path as early as possible.
We offer learning opportunities in nine key learning areas, as well as additional programs for sport, performing arts and extracurricular youth development programs such as the Duke of Edinburgh Award, the Kokoda Challenge and structured class camps.
Trinity also actively promotes student leadership throughout the Middle and Senior years. We believe that by giving students greater responsibility as they get older, they will become accountable, contributing members of society who value their community and the diversity within it.
Students at our Gold Coast campus are given the opportunity to be a part of a middle years Student Representative Council, and apply for School Captain and House Captain positions. This focused responsibility fosters necessary skill development in the areas of relationship building, teamwork, communication, delegation and organisation.
Upon graduation from the Middle Years at Trinity Lutheran College, students can move into our Senior Years to complete their high school journey.
