A Day in The Life & University Engagement
Trinity College Senior (TCS) has the depth and large breadth of subject choices to accommodate a broad range of student interests, abilities and future goals.
TCS's experience tells us academic success, self-confidence and skills development are all closely linked and that they thrive in a supportive environment of experienced, motivated and dedicated teachers equipped with our state of the art facilities.
Our formal relationship with the University of South Australia allows students to meet on site with University representatives and obtain first hand new developments within the sector.
To help our young emerging adults make informed and wise choices about their futures we offer a variety of interactions with the tertiary sector and workplace. These involve the challenging process for subject pre-requisites, course content, assessment practices and student expectations for the tertiary sector. To a more exploratory engagement with professionals in the workforce visiting the College to answer students’ questions about pay rates, work conditions, promotional opportunities, on-going qualifications and running your own business. This event is called “A Day in the Life” and is free for all Year 10s.
