Learning@Home and Co@ch at Trinity
As of Wednesday 25 March, Trinity Christian School moved to be a pupil-free campus for Kindergarten to Year 12. Trinity immediately started the transition to Learning@Home. As we step into Term 2, Learning@Home is the new mode of education for Trinity’s 1050 students, with on campus support available for those families who need it. The uptake and feedback on Learning@Home has been incredibly positive. The interactive and engaging world of Learning@Home incorporates:
- Regular live check-ins between teachers and their classes.
- Teachers posting videos, stories and photos to teach concepts and students posting work examples, photographs and videos of their learning.
- Flipped classrooms and a range of options for both offline and online learning.
- Targeted home planners and learning grids.
- Well being, pastoral care and learning support facilities and resources.
As part of the Learning@Home program, Trinity has also successfully launched ‘Co@ch’ – a space where ‘Carers at Home’ can come together online and grapple with different aspects of education that are relevant to their children. Co@ch aims to support the parent and carer community during the time of Learning@Home to continue to build engagement and relationship. Each live online Co@ch session is focused on an aspect of education that will develop parents’ understanding, skills and knowledge to support their child’s learning.
New Kindergarten Building is Ready and Waiting
On Friday 3 April, the portable buildings that have comfortably housed Trinity Christian School’s three Kindergarten classes since Term 2 last year, were removed. The School’s exciting redevelopment of their Junior School “C-Block” is now complete. When the time comes for students to return to the school campus, Kindergarten and 1N will move straight into their brand new learning environment.
C-Block was originally constructed in 1982 and was the first building on Trinity’s Wanniassa campus. The new, fully renovated and extended building and outdoor learning area is a significant step in delivering Trinity’s strategic priority of a ‘2030 learning environment’.
