Trinity Lutheran College is an independent, Christian co-educational, preparatory early learning, junior, middle and senior years' college in Ashmore, Gold Coast, Australia.

History[edit]

In January 1981 Trinity Lutheran Primary School opened its doors for the first time by Eddie and Lila MacKenzie, Ben Stephan, Jack and Irene Strohmeyer. The school began with 75 students, with the first classes in the Trinity Lutheran Church Hall, Southport.


School structure[edit]

Campuses[edit]

Trinity Lutheran College is one college, divided into three schools on two campuses. The Early Learning and Junior Years' campus is located around the corner from the main Ashmore Road Trinity Campus. The Junior Years' campus runs from Prep to Year 5. The Middle Years campus is from Year 6 to Year 9, and the Senior Years campus is from Year 10 to 12.

Facilities and grounds[edit]

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 Junior Years' 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 classrooms are air-conditioned. In 2007 much of the Senior Years' facilities 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.[1]
