Trinity Anglican School provides an environment in which the individual is cared for and accepted, but also feels a sense of belonging as a member of a House. This enables them to develop team spirit and to interact with a wide cross-section of students in academic, sporting and cultural events. In their senior years, tutor groups are established within each House to ensure the academic and pastoral well being of each student.
All students are allocated to a House, and members of the one family are always placed in the same House. Each House is named after a prominent North Queensland explorer or pioneer.
A number of activities at the School are based on House membership. Nearly all sporting activities swimming, cross-country running, athletics, triathlon and other competitive sports within the School earn points for Houses. As well, competition in cultural areas such as debating and public speaking will also be based on Houses. Students are encouraged to join in as many of these activities as possible, to help earn points for their House. At the end of the year, at the Awards Ceremony, a cup is awarded to the House which has gained the most points during the year.
Throughout the year, each House fund-raises for charity as determined by the Head of House and House Captains reiterating our school mission statement, with students becoming 'serving members of the wider community'.
From their very first year in Preparatory, through to their last years, their House becomes an integral part of their lives at TAS!
