This Report is sent to the Catholic Schools Office, Armidale for validation with the requirements of the Education Act 1990 before being forwarded to the Board of Studies. Following its submission to the NSW Board of Studies the report will be presented to the parent body and be available on the CSO website by 30 June The school Regional Supervisor also validates that the school has in place appropriate processes to ensure compliance with all NSW Board of Studies requirements for Registration. Holy Trinity School is a Catholic school for students from Kindergarten to Year 10, established by the Sisters of Mercy and the de La Salle Brothers. Our faith, prayer and Religious Education classes are an important and integral part of our daily life, which is strongly supported through close ties to Sacred Heart Parish. We strive to provide a safe, protective environment that allows individuals to grow, live, learn and achieve. Our school is a place of welcome, involvement and belonging where a strong emphasis is placed upon pastoral care for all members of the community and leadership opportunities are fostered. Guided in the development of their faith, students are encouraged to become young men and women who will take their place in the community as leaders and people of commitment, inspired by Christian values. The school focuses on holistic growth and learning, social justice issues and developing an understanding of local, national and global issues so that all may have life to the full (John 10:10).Within a caring learning environment characterised by strong parental involvement, dedicated and experienced staff provide firm foundations in literacy and numeracy and seek to inspire a lifelong love of learning. An ongoing commitment to teacher professional development fosters innovative

2 teaching practice that addresses student learning needs. We value the importance of daily literacy and numeracy blocks in prime learning time and the development of critical thinking skills, with an independent approach to learning emphasised in both the primary and secondary departments. Inclass support strategies assist students with special learning needs and opportunities for extension are also built into the curriculum. The school also offers a middle school approach that ensures a well supported academic and social transition into secondary education. We are committed to an education which encourages our students to be creative and analytical thinkers, resilient in embracing life and its challenges. Holy Trinity has a high academic profile and offers opportunities for participation in a broad co-curriculum, with a range of sports, cultural pursuits and creative and performing arts. The school s Information and Communication Learning Technology (ICLT) vision ensures that computer technology is valued and respected as a vital part of contemporary learning in the 21st Century from Kindergarten onwards and two computer laboratories support students class work. Our ICLT program supports current research that children need to be actively engaged in their learning and also includes access to networked computers and netbooks in all classes and interactive whiteboards for classroom use. These tools are an effective means to develop an enthusiasm for learning. The school s recently completed building program has provided a new Creative and Performing Arts Centre that encourages creative expression, offering access to specialist Art, Drama, Music and Dance facilities. A spacious new Design and Technology wing accommodates studies in Food, Wood and Metal Technologies and the new Library and classrooms cater amply for student learning needs. Holy Trinity invites parents to share an active involvement in the life of our school and offers a variety of opportunities for parent participation, including attendance at parent forums and information meetings. We believe that this enhances each child s education through strong home school relationships. Holy Trinity functions as one school, with Primary and Secondary sections working closely together to build the community s mission and goals. A policy of inclusion is promoted, assuring that the educational needs of the students are addressed by our dedicated staff. Excellent academic results complement the many achievements by our students. There is a strong sense of community at Holy Trinity. With a dedicated staff, an active Parents and Friends Association and a visionary School Board, the school is part of a vibrant and supportive parish led by Parish Priest Fr Joe Adriano.Family involvement is a very important part of school life and as well, we warmly welcome enquiries and visits from all prospective families seeking a Catholic education to see our school for themselves. Parental Involvement I have taken on the reigns of the HTS Board amidst a massive construction program and it is with great pleasure and an enormous sense of achievement as a school I can present this report as the construction concludes has been a challenging year for the staff, students and parents of the school, but how spectacularly it has all come together. HTS now boasts state of the art learning centres with the completion of the new Wood and Metal Technology, Design centre and Food Technology rooms, Music, Visual Arts, Dance and Drama facilities and change rooms this area was able to be used for the majority of the year. The adjoining courtyard has been a wonderful space not only for the secondary children, but also supporting several functions through the year. The new library and computer laboratory are very contemporary and will be a wonderful learning area for many years to come. The adjacent refurbished classrooms are also an incredible transformation. The surrounding grounds, walkways, gardens and paths both beautify and modernize the whole school. The refurbished administration block has been a bonus, with well equipped offices for the growing needs of the administration team, contemporary staff room and sick bay. With that change came the necessary adjustments to the infants play area which I am sure they all agree are wonderful. The special needs classroom is another area refurbished earlier in the year and also provides very modern facilities and space. At this point I would like to congratulate our Principal Mrs Thomas for overseeing this project and seeing it successfully completed. Her diligence, tenacity and attention for detail are what gives us what we see today. Always giving the board comprehensive reports, asking advice and giving tours. I am sure she adds many more skills to her regime now, from transformers to soft fall she has it all covered. I look forward to future projects at Holy Trinity, knowing that Principal Thomas s tenacity and dedication will see any project through to completion. But as Bishop Matthys so aptly said during his visit to bless the new facilities, that it is NOT the buildings which make the school, it is the people within it. The staff at Holy Trinity need special acknowledgment for what has been a challenging year. They had to deal with changing learning spaces, incredible noise and disruption at times. Their professionalism and hard work however, has allowed learning to continue with minimal impact on the students, again reflecting in wonderful results across the school both academically, on the sports field, swimming pool and music, arts and drama. During the year they have also completed and passed very successfully the Catholic School s Office educational audit which is 2

3 run by CSO on behalf of the Board of Studies. I would especially like to acknowledge the great efforts of the Assistant Principals Mrs Jilly Rainger and Mrs Chris Ehsman for their professionalism and hard work. I would also like to acknowledge the work of Father Joe, Father John earlier in the year and the Sacred Heart parish for guiding our students and supporting the school. The Christian values upon which this school is founded, give Holy Trinity its basis and can only be sustained through the word of God. Together this gives our students the principles and ideals to live a Christian life. In amongst our busy year the annual Bishop s commission was held at Holy Trinity, taking advantage of the performing arts and technology areas. Representatives from schools around the diocese attend a successful meeting of both planning and reflection. It was also a wonderful opportunity to show case our burgeoning facilities to other schools. The family community of Holy Trinity also contributes to the tremendous spirit this school boasts. We are blessed to have so many families who contribute time in a voluntary capacity, whether it be reading programs, supervising excursions, canteen help, working bees, coaching sport, selling tickets, cooking bbqs or calling bingo. Not only does it help in a physical sense, but it shows our young people a sense of community and that working together makes the job easier. Having watched the 2011 group of year 10s recently makes this even more apparent. I have thoroughly enjoyed reading in the last weeks the thoughts of the leaving year repeated words like friendships, respect, guidance, growth. Great students, leaving a great school but coming from beautiful families. Congratulations to them and what bright futures they have ahead of them wherever the road may take them. I am very proud and honoured to serve the school on the School Board. It has given me a greater understanding of how much work is put into educating our children. It also makes me very proud as a parent to watch our children both at school and in the community grow into respectful and polite individuals who have not only pride in themselves and their school but carry with them Christian values. The students of Holy Trinity School deliver the motto of living life to the full and give this school the tremendous spirit it has and maintain the great reputation it has in the community. I look forward to Chair of Holy Trinity School Board Student Leadership At Holy Trinity, the Student Leaders are inducted into the positions of School Captain, Primary Captain, Student Representative Council (made up of member from the Secondary Department and Year 6), St Vincent de Paul Executive (Year 10 students) and Sports Captains from Year 10 and Year 6. Throughout 2011, the Student Leaders worked on a mixture of social and fundraising activities and the SRC was prominent in community events such as ANZAC Day, Remembrance Day and Clean Up Australia Day. The Student Council also conducted a number of fundraising activities assisted when the Parent and Friends held their Milkshake Days. The money raised from the SRC activities was used to contribute to Caritas and Catholic Mission. The Primary SRC Members were also involved in the Kindergarten Enrolment process and orientation and the Student Councillors were involved in meetings throughout the year where student related issues such as school uniform, organising school activities, student pastoral care, the canteen menu and the like were discussed. All Year 10 students took on a special leadership role as members of the Junior St Vincent de Paul Conference. As well as leading school fundraising events such as the walkathon and the collation of Christmas hampers, Year 10 took part in a mentoring program that saw them work with individual students in the Infants and Primary Departments during the year. Student Leaders Holy Trinity School School Profile School History Holy Trinity School was officially opened on 31st March 1963 with an enrolment of 100 boys from 4th Class to First Form (Year 7). The Parish Priest, Monsignor Healy in the late 50s, instigated the concept of a separate Boys School. Within 4 years, however, Holy Trinity became co-educational for First to Fourth Form but still only had boys from Years 4-6. The first buildings were the two-storey block and the old Library block, which is now a classroom block. Together they comprised seven classrooms, a Library, Science Lab, Gymnasium, Tuckshop, Headmaster s Office and Staff Lunch Room. De La Salle Brothers wholly staffed the School. The first Principal was Brother James Thomas. In 1966, three lay teachers were employed. Mrs Hayden, Mrs. Joan Hockey and Mr. Barry Slamon. The following year three Sisters of Mercy joined the staff. They were Sr. M Thomas (later Sr. Maureen Heffernan), Sr. M Bonaventure and Sr. Christopher. At this stage, Sacred Heart School, located where the new Church and Presbytery now stand, catered for boys and girls from K to Year 3 while St. Mary s on Ross Hill catered for girls from Year 4 to year 6. In 1968, the Technics Block was built with a new Library in the location of the current Library and ICT Room. In the early 70 s, further accommodation was found necessary and two Science Rooms were built. By 1975 it was decided that Catholic education would be best served if all classes were taught on the one site. The Parish purchased Copeton Dam buildings and 3

4 turned them into six Primary classrooms. In 1976, all Primary classes moved to the Holy Trinity campus with Sr. M Vianney (now Sr. Mavis) as Primary Coordinator. Plans were already being made to move all Infants students to Trinity. This happened in 1979 following the building of six classrooms and the current Administration Block. Sr. Bernard was Infants Mistress at the time. The De La Salle Brothers moved out at the end of 1978 and Mr. Jim Doran was appointed as the first Lay Principal. In 1981 Mr. Laurie Breen was appointed as Principal. Mr. Breen retired at the end of 1987, from which time Tim Newberry was the Principal until June of Mr David McNeale was appointed as Principal at this time and remained in this position until the end of Mrs Valerie Thomas was appointed as Principal from the commencement of the 2010 school year. In 2011 a comprehensive building program saw the creation of new specialist and general learning areas, refurbishment of a number of buildings and further beautification of the school grounds.

10 Parent, Student and Staff Satisfaction In 2011, Parents, Students in Years 4,6,7 and 9 and Staff were all surveyed by an independent specialist corporation. Parents were offered the opportunity to provide comprehensive feedback across five areas and indicated a high level of satisfaction in all areas. Catholic Ethos, Resources, Teaching and Learning and Improvement Processes were rated overall as being Good and Leadership was rated as Excellent. No areas of concern were identified by parents. Students rated all areas highly across the various age groups surveyed in the Primary and Secondary Departments. The overall student rating was within the highest category with Teaching and Learning, Catholic Ethos and Leadership receiving the strongest responses. Staff rated all five areas as highly with Catholic Ethos and Resources considered Excellent and Staff Engagement, Leadership and Improvement Processes rated as Good. No areas requiring attention were identified. While the survey results indicate a high level of satisfaction in every area, the comprehensive reports will be analysed closely by the Leadership Team to shape priorities and further enhance all aspects of school life. School Review and Development Annual School Priorities 2011 Priorities were determined under four major headings- Catholic Identity and Religious Education, Relationships, Learning and Teaching and Organisation and Administration. CATHOLIC IDENTITY AND RELIGIOUS EDUCATION - Priority areas were the development of processes to support staff who are required to obtain Religious Education qualifications, working with the parish to investigate opportunities to provide parents with a broader range of spiritual and faith formation programs and continuing to offer opportunities for staff participation in spiritual and faith formation programs. Further priorities were the continuation of the commencement of each RE class with the Traditional Church prayers using the Ignation spirituality process of meditation and centring and the review and update of RE programs including strategies, assessment tasks and resources. Promoting access to the Seasons for Growth program by students was also a specific goal. RELATIONSHIPS - Priorities in this area were to review the role of the Student Representative Council, introduce an Induction Program for new members of staff and develop and implement a new prospectus package. The development of a program to welcome and support new families, skilling staff in promoting student resilience and the introduction of the Mind Matters and elements of the You Can Do It programs were further goals. LEARNING AND TEACHING - Priorities in this area were to ensure that the 2006 Educational Audit Report recommendations were met in full, to review the implementation of the environmental awareness program and to refine current processes for curriculum extension for students identified as being in the top bands and curriculum adjustment for students identified as being in the lower bands. Further priorities were to undertake an audit of current assessment practices to ensure that homework expectations were consistent and appropriate K-10 and to ensure that the Common Grade Scale was informing the allocation of grades for all formal reports. In addition, attention was to be given to responding to the development and implementation of the new Australian Curriculum and the introduction of the SAS reporting program for students from Kindergarten to Year 6. ORGANISATION AND ADMINISTRATION - Priorities in these areas were to audit the current list of policies and establish a review process and timeline and to develop a process that linked professional development activities, the annual development plan and teacher professional planning.further goals were the implementation of changes initiated in 2009 to the management of the canteen and uniform supplies and the investigation of strategies to improve communication for all stakeholders using ICT. The establishment of a process and timeline for the development of staff and parent/carer handbooks that presented a K-10 perspective was a specific goal. Projected School Priorities 2012 Holy Trinity s School Priorities in 2012 will be drawn from the Diocesan Mission Statement and Strategic Intentions, which are overviewed below: Staff in Catholic parish schools and the Catholic Schools Office of the Diocese of Armidale work collectively as a diocesan system to ensure quality educational opportunities in the Catholic Tradition and therefore commit to: 1. Mission and Evangelisation: The Diocesan system assists parents and the parish community in their responsibility of educating their children in the Catholic Tradition. Such education is multi-dimensional, encompassing the spiritual, cognitive, social, moral, physical and emotional dimensions of the person. Catholic schools provide high quality educational programmes in which students, along with the whole school community, learn the Catholic Tradition, par- 10

11 ticipate actively in the Liturgy and Catholic spiritual practices, and are invited into a closer personal encounter with Christ through the proclamation, witness and service of those who work in our schools. The System will promote Mission and Evangelisation through the following Strategic Directions: SD 1.1: Strengthen the process of staff formation in order to further staff commitment to and participation in the evangelising mission of Catholic schools. SD 1.2: Promote family involvement in the faith life and faith development of children in Catholic schools. SD 1.3 Integrate the activity of Catholic schools within the life of the surrounding parish(es) so that students are given a sense of belonging to the Church beyond their family and school. 2. Learners and Learning: The Diocesan system, through proclamation, witness and service, supports and challenges learners and learning in their life-long search for truth to promote life-long benefits for the individual and communities. Learning in the Catholic tradition integrates faith and reason. Each learner is at the centre of the educative process. Learning in creative, challenging, contemporary and supportive environments enables learners to gain the knowledge, skills and virtues to participate morally and positively in society and make discerning choices in their lives. The System will promote Learners and Learning through the following Strategic Directions: SD 2.1: Engage learners in varied experiences that maximise individual learning outcomes. SD 2.2: Promote professional learning in the context of collaborative learning communities that enable teachers to design quality experiences for students. SD 2.3: Review and consolidate programs and practices to build resilience and enhance physical, social, spiritual, cognitive, moral and emotional wellbeing. SD 2.4: Foster a culture of investigation to inform the learning process, supported by on-going professional learning and target-setting. 3. Leadership: The Diocesan system promotes Christ-centred servant leadership that is grounded in our Diocesan mission to proclaim, witness and serve. Leadership in Catholic education nurtures the integration of faith, life and culture in self and others, and emerges from and is open to the liberating action of the Spirit. Such leadership is the responsibility of all members of the Diocesan education community. This leadership includes both informal leadership as well as positional leadership. Leadership in the Catholic tradition is realised by co-responsible action for the Common Good. It is leadership which is gospel-based, strategic, ethical and accountable. Leadership at all levels is nurtured by a commitment to on-going professional learning and dialogue. The System will promote Leadership through the following Strategic Directions: SD3.1: Promote a shared understanding of Christcentred servant leadership across the Diocesan system. SD3.2: Identify leadership potential at all levels and implement formation programs to offer opportunities to enhance individual capabilities and organisational capacity. SD 3.3: Expand the modes of and opportunities for professional learning and dialogue to strengthen leadership capabilities and capacity across the system. 4. Partnerships In the Diocesan system of schools, the relationship between students, parents and teachers and pastors is the core partnership in Catholic education. Parishes and the Diocesan system work in support of this core partnership. Other parties, external to the school community, complement the work of the school and the system. Partnerships exist to strengthen and support the educational endeavour of schools. These partnerships are inspired by the Catholic social teachings on solidarity and subsidiarity are evidenced by patterns of interdependence, collaboration and cooperation. The System will promote Partnerships through the following Strategic Directions: SD4.1: Foster positive family school partnerships that focus on individual outcomes and the Common Good. SD4.2: Nurture partnerships within and between schools, parishes and the Catholic Schools Office for the Common Good. SD4.3: Facilitate and encourage positive partnerships between the system and the local, regional and global communities. 5. Resourcing The Diocesan system ensures the provision of a standard of educational excellence which meets the expectations of the Catholic Church and the broader community. Within the system, each member community shares responsibility not just for the education of its own members but for the education of every student in the Diocese. Trust and concern for the Common Good are therefore essential to the operation of the system. The distribution of resources across the system is governed by the principles of equity, subsidiarity and sustainability. The equitable distribution of resources ensures that differences in educational outcomes are not the result of wealth, income, location, power or possessions. Subsidiarity in this context refers to the ability to make decisions about the use of resources, at the most appropriate level of administration, to 11

12 best support educational outcomes for students. To ensure the long-term achievement of school and system goals, such resource allocation decisions have to be sustainable. The System will promote Resourcing through the following Strategic Directions: SD 5.1: Develop, agree to and apply principles of equity, subsidiarity and sustainability to the distribution of financial, physical and human resources across the system and within schools. SD 5.2: Identify and promote sound financial, physical and human resource management and accountability mechanisms. SD 5.3 Make more effective use of existing accountability requirements, to guide school and system improvement. During Term 1 of 2012 the Holy Trinity School Community will develop a plan that addresses all aspects over a three year period and determines the strategic priorities within this for Major Achievements from the 2011 Annual Plan CATHOLIC IDENTITY AND RELIGIOUS EDUCA- TION Staff were offered options for obtaining Religious Education qualifications and several commenced studies in this area. Staff attended optional Retreats and Reflection Days and all teachers attended a Spirituality and Retreat Day in Term 4. The school hosted several parish e-conferences and the Men s Retreat, hosted the Diocesan Mini Vinnies Conference and held the Trinity Sunday parish mass in our hall as well as special liturgies for Easter and our Thanksgiving Mass at the school. An evaluation of prayer was held to ensure that all teachers had the necessary prayer resources to ensure that prayer commences classes on each day. All RE programs were reviewed and updated to ensure that they met requirements regarding assessment and evaluation. Access to the Seasons for Growth program by students was promoted with the program run successfully in RELATIONSHIPS The results of the review the role of the Student Representative Council were incorporated into the Student Leadership Policy and Guidelines and changes sought were implemented. The Induction Program for new members of staff was developed and the Student Enrolment Package containing the prospectus was updated. The school community upon work with anti bullying and promoting student resilience, passing a rigorous application process to become part of the Alannah and Madeline Foundation s e-smart program. This provides resources and support in combating bullying in its many forms, particularly cyber bullying and staff worked with students to develop and implement our anti bullying plan as part of this initiative. Teachers also attended Generation Next conferences and used the mind matters and kits matters programs as foundations for our own Pastoral Care program. We also ran student safety days, the Centacare Counselling Service (which will double its hours at Holy Trinity in 2012), Seasons for Growth and a successful Chaplaincy program. The P&F and staff held two successful parent information nights that offered parenting support and advice. The first was run by Marist Youth Care and focused on Restorative Justice and the second was led by presenter Graham Hyman and was called Understanding Your Teenager. LEARNING AND TEACHING The K- 10 curriculum was reviewed as part of a successful Educational Audit. Staff participated in many opportunities for professional development across a wide range of areas and brought this information back to the school, presented it at staff meetings and incorporated new knowledge and skills into their teaching practice and professional life. Twenty eight new desktop computers and 21 new laptops were installed with interactive white boards in all new classrooms and ipods and ipads were trialled as tools for student learning. A new three year ICT Plan was developed by the staff and necessary resources determined for implementation in The MultiLit Program was introduced to build literacy skills with the assistance of parent tutors, the school participated in the Diocesan Kindergarten Language assessment Program and trialled a national disability identification program. Students were given exciting opportunities to learn in and beyond the classroom through the world wide web and the acquisition of specialist education programs that came to life in classrooms on our interactive white boards. They also participated in national competitions such as the Australian Mathematics and Science competitions with distinction, had visiting performers, authors, artists and musicians across K-10 and travelled off site as far away as Sydney and the Sunshine Coast for excursions and sporting competitions. ORGANISATION AND ADMINISTRATION A full audit of policies was carried out and a new timeline for review and ratification of policies was established. The Parent Handbook was revised and a Staff Handbook created. Both documents reflected a K- 10 approach Processes to ensure a safer and more supportive learning environment were introduced a new Safety Committee was formed to oversee matters relates to OHS and new reporting and management practices introduced. 12
