Holy Trinity School provides a learning environment in which students aged between 12 and 16 are exposed to a broad range of educational opportunities while facing the intellectual and social challenges of the teenage years. Our aim is for each student to reach his or her full academic, social and emotional potential.
Students in Years 7 to 10 are at a critical period in their lives when they are laying the foundations of their journey towards adulthood. At the core of our thinking at Holy Trinity School is an understanding of the importance of developing productive and supportive relationships. Students are given confidence to explore personal challenges within a nurturing, caring environment. They are encouraged to develop determination and perseverance, to learn from their mistakes, to know they are good at something and that they are valued and respected as part of our school community.
Information and Communication Technologies (ICT) are used to enhance the learning process at Holy Trinity School. Students have access to a wireless network throughout the entire school, a well-equipped computer lab, as well as banks of laptops and iPads througout the Secondary. Many rooms have interactive white boards and all classrooms have Apple TV. ICT is integrated into learning across the curriculum.
There is currently underway a pilot, involving the full integration of mobile learning devices into the classroom, with Year 8. This program will run on the basis of a ‘Bring Your Own Technology’ (BYOT) model, using the Apple iPad. This pilot will help inform decision-making regarding future directions of ICT at Holy Trinity School.
