CAN I COME AND HAVE A LOOK AT THE SCHOOL?
We normally have Open Days quarterly, however, Open Days are currently on hold due to COVID-19.
Please contact us to set up an individual meeting.
WHAT GRADE DO YOU GO UP TO?
We currently (2020) go up to Grade 4. Grade 5 will start in 2021, Grade 6 in 2022, and so on.
Applications for Grades above Grade 3 will only be considered if the parents and children understand that some catching up (particularly in Latin) will be required.
WHAT IF MY CHILD HAS TO LEAVE AND GO TO ANOTHER SCHOOL?
We ensure that all the South African National Curriculum outcomes are covered in our curriculum. Your child will not be ‘behind’ if for some reason you need to go to another school.
WHAT IS THE APPLICATION PROCESS?
Step 1, is to fill in the application forms and send them to email@example.com
Step 2, book an interview / tester day.
Step 3, if you are accepted, sign a parents’ contract and pay your deposit.
ARE SIBLING DISCOUNTS AVAILABLE?
Yes, siblings all get a 15% discount.
ARE SCHOLARSHIPS AVAILABLE?
Yes, there are a number of our children on 50% scholarships. We try to do our best for all our families, but competition for scholarships is fierce. Application forms for scholarships can be obtained at the application interview.
DOES MY CHILD ABSOLUTELY HAVE TO DO LATIN?
Yes, Latin is an integral part of the Classical experience. Latin will do your child good; if you can’t, with sincerity, encourage your child in learning Latin, Trinity is not the right school for your family.
The Classical Difference website has plenty of articles explaining the value of Latin.
CAN I SEND MY CHILD TO TRINITY IF I AM NOT A CHRISTIAN?
Trinity’s mission is to support Christian families. We require at least one parent to be a professing (and practicing) Christian believer.
WHAT IS YOUR DISCIPLINE POLICY?
Discipline is an area which requires great trust between parents and school. Parents need to know that their Christian values are enforced at school with the same loving firmness that they are at home. At Trinity discipline is part of discipleship. It is always approached with an attitude of grace and with the aim of seeing heart change, not mere outward conformity.
The golden school rule is show respect as you would have others show respect to you. This means listening to teachers and not speaking over classmates. It means respect for the feelings, property and dignity of others. Children are reminded of these standards often and if they fail to honour the standards after repeated reminders, the issue is taken to his or her parents. The teacher will then discuss (and offer suggestions) how to present a united front that addresses not just the behaviour but the heart behind the behaviour.
WHAT IS YOUR RACE POLICY?
We believe all people are descended from Adam and loved by God. It is not right, in the sight of God, to judge anyone on the colour of their skin. However, it is also not honouring to God to ignore the differences in appearance and culture in our world; instead, we should celebrate and learn to honour the differences and similarities between us.
WHAT IS YOUR POLICY REGARDING SEX-ED?
The privilege of explaining love, marriage and sex to children belongs primarily and principally to parents. We support Christian parents in their desire to teach their children biblical standards of sex as and when they as parents judge the time to be right. We offer no sex-ed to children.
We do, however, offer sex-ed to parents, in the form of workshops and seminars designed to help parents talk to their children about sex and sexual identity in a way that is biblical and age-appropriate.
