It has been a busy term for our Performing Arts staff and students! The Catholic Performing Arts Festival (CPAF) ran from the first week of Term 3, and concluded last week, with the CPAF Winners Concert on 10 September. 

At this closing concert, Trinity was recognised as the premier performing arts school among all Catholic secondary schools in the state. What makes this achievement even more remarkable is that this is the 15th consecutive year in which this honour has been bestowed upon the College. This enduring record of excellence is testimony to the diligence and talent of all of the students and staff involved, but particular congratulations are due to Dr Robert Braham who leads and inspires all participants in this dimension of the school.
