Trinity College originated at St. George's Church, Church Hill, Gawler, when a group of parish parents decided their children needed a better future. The first class was held in the parish hall, across the road from the church.
Trinity College is a school that ensures key traditional celebrations. Included are the annual Trinity Open Day and regular chapel services, the school community regularly congregates in celebration. Student achievements are recognised on-stage at fortnightly assemblies and events. Events include the school's silver anniversary which is commemorated through special edition school diaries and silver decorations.[weasel words]
All Trinity College students are asked to bring a small donation of non-perishable food to give to Anglicare every year. Although non-mandatory to students, each year many bags of food and other helpful items are loaded into vans and taken to the homeless and less fortunate.
