Resilience, empathy, kindness and support are all essential life-long qualities children need. At Trinity Anglican School, we believe these qualities are worth investing time in, so we have developed a specialty wellbeing Program called Care and Connect.
As a compulsory program, Care and Connect gathers students in multi-age groupings from Years 3 to 6. This grouping approach nurtures healthy social skills and encourages students to develop relationships with peers from other grades within their community.
During their weekly Care and Connect session, students rotate through several engaging modules, each comprising a four-week activities program.
At its core, the program is centered on a holistic approach to education which focuses on holistic education that looks beyond academia and supports personal development.
At Trinity Anglican School, we run one of the strongest chess programs in Australia. In fact, approximately 60% of the student body participates in lessons and tournaments and taking lessons. Not only does chess bring students together, but it also helps them develop confidence, solve problems and learn how to regulate their emotions.
Our girls are empowered to develop a love of chess through the Girls’ Chess Club, which meets one lunchtime a week to play chess, listen to pop songs and eat snacks.
TAS often plays against other schools in the Cairns region and South East Queensland to enhance the benefits of chess and develop relationships with like-minded students from other schools.

The program challenges students to reflect carefully on themselves, their beliefs and the beliefs of others. Students are provided with a learning environment in which they feel safe and confident to express their beliefs, whatever those beliefs may be, within the context of the Anglican ethos of the school.
Each student is placed in one of the four houses when they begin their journey at TAS. These houses not only form the basis of the Pastoral Care and Interhouse Activity Program, but they also assign the student to a tutor group. Each group is allocated a tutor who is in daily contact with the students and builds a relationship with them to ensure they have a support network.
At White Rock ELC, our curriculum is underpinned by the Queensland Kindergarten Learning Guideline (QKLG), which is built upon the Early Years Learning Framework (EYLF).
These frameworks are approved by the Australian Government and adopt the vision that ‘all children experience learning that is engaging and builds success for life’.
The EYLF highlights five key areas of learning that are essential to children’s development and explored during their Kindergarten year. They include:
