Senior Years Faith

The Head, the Heart and the Hands

In Years 10–12, religious education remains a compulsory subject for students and they are welcome to study Religion & Life as an ATAR subject.

Faith education at Trinity takes a three-pronged approach: the Head (religious education), the Heart (campus ministry) and the Hands (Christian Service).  During their time at Trinity, students will be exposed to a variety of educational experiences allowing them to explore different aspects of Religion and apply it to their everyday life. 

Retreats continue in the senior years with the addition of the Kairos Retreat, a voluntary and much-valued four-day residential retreat offered to the Year 12s and which provides a time for meaningful reflection and gives each young man a deeper appreciation of who they are. In Year 10 students experience the Emmaus Retreat and in Year 11 the Encounter Retreat.

Senior students also have an opportunity to participate in Christian Service pilgrimages. Each year a group of students and staff travel to India or the Kimberley Region to immerse themselves in service activities supporting a variety of organisations. 

Our Christian Service program encourages a deeper understanding of humanity and fosters a sense of social justice with a commitment to Christian values. Following Trinity’s Men for Others ethos, Christian Service is very much a focus for all year groups and senior students have the opportunity to conduct their senior project completing a minimum of 40 hours of service with an agency of their choice over a six-month period. Prior to this, in Year 11, all students complete one week of Christian Service. 

This allows boys to confidently extend and develop their experience and understanding of the true nature of Christian Service. 

In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven
Matthew 5:16
