Principal’s Message

Welcome to the community of Trinity Catholic College.

Trinity Catholic College Auburn is a Year 7-12 dual campus coeducational college. The College seeks to foster Faith, Community and Nourishment in all aspects of the school life.

At Trinity, we have continued to build on the history of providing a high quality Catholic education to the greater Auburn area since 1893. At our foundation is the proud heritage and story of three schools: Benedict College, Auburn, St John’s Regional College for Girls, Auburn and St Peter Chanel Girls’ High, Regents Park, which were amalgamated in 1995 to form Trinity Catholic College.

Our College is a Catholic faith community of students, teachers, parents and parishes committed to making Jesus Christ known and loved, and to live the Marist Tradition through the Gospel values of love, empathy, compassion and forgiveness.

Our belief is that, with a learning culture of high standards and expectation, each student will flourish and excel in their learning. Each student is supported, engaged and challenged to be resourceful and curious as they develop their love of learning.

We focus on the Wellbeing of all members of our community, providing a safe and supportive environment where each person is respected and cared for. Trinity Catholic College is committed to nurturing a sense of belonging for all.

Trinity offers the unique provision of dual campus. The Regents Park Campus caters for students in Years 7-8, allowing for a supportive transition to secondary school and the opportunity for age specific learning opportunities. The Auburn Campus offers courses and pathways which cater for all students Years 9 to 12 as their schooling continues into the senior years.

As a school we recognise that parents are the first educators of their children and we are proud to work in partnership with families and the wider community to develop confident and resilient young men and women of faith and character, preparing them to make a valuable contribution to society.

As principal of Trinity, it is a privilege to lead a Catholic community, built on faith, focusing on learning, positive relationships and sense of community.

Trinity Catholic College offers something unique in the area. I invite you to explore this website to learn more about the college and the opportunities we provide for students and families.

I look forward to working with each family that chooses Trinity.

Trinity College AuburnHistory
Trinity Catholic College is part of the Australian network of Marist schools and has been characterised by a specific Marist spirit, charism and tradition, showing:

  • A devotion to Mary, mother of Jesus
  • A school climate based on the family spirit
  • A love of work
  • A strong sense of the presence of God and of our own presence to one another
  • An emphasis on simplicity
  • A commitment to empower young people and to give ordinary students from ordinary families a better chance in life.

Our Charism
The Marist Brothers have been associated with education at Auburn since 1942. When Trinity Catholic College commenced in 1995, a Marist Brother was appointed Principal and an onsite community of Brothers ministered to the school.

The college is part of the Australian Network of Marist Schools with its staff and students participating in a number of Marist sponsored activities.

Our Patron Saints

St Marcellin Champagnat
Fr Marcelllin Champagnat, a French peasant priest, took on an enormous challenge. Moved by the plight of the youth in post-revolutionary France, he responded dynamically by founding a congregation of teaching Brothers. With faith in God and convinced that Mary ‘Our Good Mother’ was guiding the work, he taught, trained, formed and enthused these first Brothers.

Marcellin passed on to these Brothers his spirituality, and his vision of education. Marist Brothers now work in some eighty countries around the world. The mission of Marist educators is to be among the young, sowing the Good News, with a “distinctive Marist style”: with simplicity, presence, family spirit, love of work, and in the way of Mary. On April 18th 1999, Marcellin Champagnat was canonised a Saint.

St Mary MacKillop
Mary was born in Melbourne in 1842 and trained as a governess. She soon realised the enormous problems that faced the poor children in remote rural areas. She, along with Fr. Tenison-Woods, founded the Sisters of St Joseph, a congregation of religious women devoted to education.

Mary’s Sisters soon became well known for the quality of the schools that they founded and their willingness to work in remote areas with the most disadvantaged youth. Mary was beatified in Sydney by Pope John Paul II in 1995, becoming the first Australian to be called Blessed and in 2010 Mary MacKillop was canonised a Saint by Pope Benedict XVI.

Trinity College AuburnOur Vision
To be a genuinely Catholic community of parents, students, teachers and parishes working in partnership to ensure that our students are safe, happy, well taught and learn to love Jesus and to live by his values in the Marist way.

Our Mission
To provide a safe environment by establishing a clear sense of order and purpose, and a disciplined climate which ensures the well-being of everyone in the college community.
