As well as being one of the most preferred schools in Far North Queensland, where students are renowned for excelling in academic studies, sports, music and cultural experiences, Trinity Anglican School (TAS) has a number of extra advantages that makes it the school of choice for hundreds of families.
Small class sizes
TAS features small class sizes of just 22 from Prep to Year 6 and 25 in Years 7-12, which give students more time, guidance and personalised feedback from their teachers.
Focus on students meeting and exceeding their academic potential
The school’s core belief is that every student can succeed academically with the right support and environment and reach their academic potential. The school’s educators are always monitoring improvement in learning, including the use of data and feedback, and identifying where learning can be improved.
Highly credentialed and passionate teachers
Teaching staff are all genuinely interested in their students and strive for ways to improve the learning of their students. Teachers will often be found helping students during breaks and attending camps, which enhances their relationships.
Authentic, character-building Outdoor Education program
TAS has an outstanding Outdoor Education experience, recognised as the best in North Queensland and which has been a finalist for the last three years in the Queensland Outdoor Recreation Federation Outdoors Queensland Awards.
Global perspective through Round Square membership
Membership of Round Square, an organisation of more than 175 schools globally, provides opportunities for students to experience exchanges, conferences and service projects with overseas students and schools.
Balancing 21st century skills with traditional values
TAS graduates are very well prepared when they leave school in areas such as teamwork and collaboration, critical thinking, problem solving, global awareness and communication skills. Studies in areas such as robotics and coding are balanced with a strong focus on literacy and numeracy skills.
Enhanced and advanced junior school program
All junior year levels have lessons each week in Japanese, art, music and physical education and all students participate in a structured swimming program all year. There is also a variety of activities available for extension and enrichment, such as Optiminds, chess, robotics and programming, along with a wide range of music and sport opportunities.
Relationship-based pastoral care and student wellbeing with a Christian values framework
All students are members of a House, allowing strong links between students of different year levels and leading to a less stratified student body. The school culture is based on Christian values and has an ongoing, strong relationship with Anglican churches within the Cairns region.
“Students who graduate from Trinity Anglican School make lifelong friends and become part of the Australian Anglican school family, recognised as the best school sector in Australia, producing leaders of yesteryear, today and of the future”
