Trinity2Cambodia Service Award

Through the generosity of supporters of the Trinity College Foundation and fundraising activities, we are pleased to support the Trinity2Cambodia service trip by way of an award. The award exists to acknowledge a student who is striving to help others and willingly volunteers to support College life.

The Trinity2Cambodia Service Award will create an opportunity for a Trinity student to contribute to the richness and diversity of the College’s community through learning about Non Government Organisations (NGOs) abroad, performing volunteer work in Cambodia, developing new strategies to help others in need and their ability to strengthen community relationships.

The Certificate of Academic Merit is presented to students who make significant improvement in academic areas. The award is designed to recognise and promote academic achievement and is intended to complement other forms of recognition by acknowledging students who might not otherwise be recognised. A total of 16 certificates are presented in Term 3 annually across the College Middle Schools. Each recipient also receives a commemorative book.
