Welcome to Trinity College Colac, a Catholic co-educational college for Year 7 - 12 students. Our vision is that Trinity College will be a vibrant learning community where our students are inspired to reach their potential in a happy and supportive environment.

In 2017 we celebrate the 50th Anniversary of Trinity College Colac. There are many reasons to celebrate a Trinity education and this year, our 50th is one of them.

We remain indebted to our founders, the Christian Brothers and Mercy Sisters and St. Mary's Catholic Parish whose dedication and acts of service have ensured the vibrant educative community that we experience today. Together with our Catholic ethos and the charism of its founders, Edmund Rice (Christian Brothers) and Catherine McAuley (Mercy Sisters), Trinity College, as a Christ-centred community, espouses the Gospel values of faith, hope and love.

Approximately 740 students from Years 7 to 12 have enrolled at Trinity College for the 2017 academic school year. Learning for these students is facilitated in modern, well-resourced facilities, utilising a curriculum that caters to students' individual needs and interests.

A body of committed, caring and qualified staff, working in a friendly and supportive environment, makes Trinity College an attractive option for post-primary schooling.
At Trinity College, we aim to work with the students and parents of our community to ensure that each student is supported to be and do the best they can.

Trinity College offers students many extra-curricular opportunities such as music, bands, performing arts, chess, robotics, debating and public speaking, retreats, local and interstate excursions and camps, social gatherings and a comprehensive sports program.

As a Catholic College, our community is ever mindful that God is central to our being and to our actions. We endeavour, through practical action, to be true to our Core Values and to the teachings of Jesus Christ.

I trust that you will find this website useful as you endeavour to learn a little more about our College.
