The Community Council continues to meet each month representing the parents, teachers and other members of our college community. We come together to discuss current issues in our community and share ideas to better cater for the Trinity community in the future.

Over the last few months the Community Council had the opportunity to be involved collaboratively in the current strategic plan. The leadership team outlined a plan for the period 2016-2018 and the Community Council were provided with the opportunity to make suggestions and changes where appropriate. The future of Trinity Catholic College is strong as the plan considers how to build and celebrate Catholic culture, how to build the capacity of the College and in doing so build community among its members.

Five strategic areas form the 2016-2018 TCC strategic plan:

                        1. Promoting Catholic Identity and Faith Formation

                        2. Transforming Teaching and Learning

                        3. Strengthening Leadership

                        4. Building Effective and Productive Partnerships

                        5. Stewarding Resources

Other decisions and discussion included repairs to the BBQ trailer, a new sound system in the quad area, updating the sound system in The Great Hall, sourcing local grants, future building plans and the employment of a person to assist in the preparation and showing of livestock.

Further discussion followed relating to supporting sport within the college, hiring out of the College facilities and current staff changes. A new parent portal is currently being trialled by a couple of families as a new method of communication with parents. Discussion also ensued on the format and length of the end of year presentation and this is currently being reviewed. Improvements to the Wexted Grandstand and steps were discussed, as was the success of the Agriculture Working Party who have achieved the goals set out in the Terms of Reference.

Through the Chair of the Community Council, Anne Muir, the College was congratulated on the success of the Harvest Dinner, the improved communication through the use of social media, the showcasing of student journalism and photographic contributions to the local paper, and the success of winter sport for Trinity students.

A decision was also reached on the installation of plaques in commemoration of staff members who have passed away while still employed at Trinity. These will be situated at the front of the College.

Anne Muir is also now a member of the Catholic School Parents Archdiocese of Canberra Goulburn group. We congratulate her on this position and welcome the opportunity to promote Trinity College in the broader Canberra Goulburn Archdiocese.
