In January 1981 the dream of a small group of visionaries was realised when Trinity Lutheran Pimary School opened its doors for the first time. This dream came to fruition due to the dedication and commitment of the founders Edie & Lila MacKenzie, Ben Stephan, Jack Strohmeyer and Irene Strohmeyer. The school began with 75 students, with the first classes in the Trinity Lutheran Church Hal, Southport.
Trinity Lutheran College is divided into three schools, two of which on the same campus. The primary school is located around the corner from the main Ashmore Road Trinity Campus. Primary school runs from Prep to Year 5. The Middle school is from Year 6 to Year 9. And the Senior school goes from Year 10 to 12.
Facilities and grounds
Major facilities include a 700-seat Chapel/auditorium and a 150-seat Cultural Precinct. In recent years a purpose-built Middle School has been constructed, and the Primary School classrooms have undergone a major redevelopment to create larger, more flexible learning environments equipped with the latest technology. Trinity has more than 500 computers located across the college for staff and students to use. All classromms are airconditioned. In 2007 much of the Senior School underwent a 'facelift' with the installation of new furniture and carpet in many of the rooms. Trinity is also fortunate to have its own onsite restaurant which is used for various functions throughout the year. The college has recently had two new state-of-the-art buildings completed. A Multi-purpose Hall and Sports Centre and a Design Technology and Trade Training Centre.
