What is an ATAR? The Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) is a number between zero and 99.95 that determines a student’s rank based on their HSC or IB mark – it is not a score out of 100. It is used by tertiary institutions around Australia to directly compare the results of Australian school leavers, and to predict a student’s first-year performance at university.
Trinity Grammar School provides boys with the opportunity to learn broadcasting and production techniques, in addition to other behind the scenes creative arts courses. For some boys, this is a great alternative to being in the spotlight. These opportunities allow them to work behind the scenes making videos or helping to stage school productions with lighting, filming and sound. Courses such as these are essential to raising well-rounded boys, building their self-confidence and further enhancing their connectedness to the School.
At Trinity Grammar School, we understand that every boy is unique. The breadth and diversity of our subject choices and academic pathways helps boys to discover their God-given talents and ultimately facilitates an environment where boys can fulfil their life’s purpose. That is why we offer both academic and vocational pathways for our students – one of which is the Higher School Certificate (HSC). This blog will help to showcase the broad range of HSC courses available at Trinity.
Trinity Grammar School provides an extensive range of co-curricular activities for your son to discover and develop his skills and God-given talents. These programmes include activities aimed at developing important skills in leadership, communication, performance, creativity, decision-making and teamwork. From dramatic and creative arts to music and sport, co-curricular activities are essential to raising well-rounded boys, building their self-confidence and further enhancing their connectedness to the School.

The Trinity Grammar School Australian Army Cadet Unit BIVOUAC took place recently. Our BIVOUAC experiences were memorable, and this camp was great for all of the recruit cadets and their Senior rank members. The cadets had a bus ride down to H Range on the southern reaches of the Holsworthy Military training area. There was a walk to Charlie and Deltas night locations and this was soon followed by a Bullring exercise.
The Universities and Admissions Centre (UAC) in NSW and ACT processes applications for admission to most undergraduate degree, advanced diploma, diploma and associate diploma courses at participating institutions in NSW and the ACT as well as some interstate colleges and universities. Importantly, the UAC also calculates and releases the Australian Tertiary Admissions Rank (ATAR) which tertiary institutions use as a predictor of a student’s first-year performance at university.
While the Higher School Certificate has been around for a long time and you might think you know everything there is to know about it, we share some interesting facts about the HSC you may not be aware of, courtesy of the NSW Education Standards Authority (NESA).

Choosing HSC subjects for Years 11 and 12 can seem quite bewildering to students in Year 10. While some have clear and definite aspirations for pathways beyond school, more often, students are in fact exploring a range of quite often diverse possibilities.
There are some important principles to observe when choosing a programme of study for Years 11 and 12.
Science builds our knowledge and understanding of the world, and allows us to create new technology and innovation and drive positive change and conservation.
There are many reasons why learning about science in early childhood education is essential. At the core, science provides the answers to many of the questions that young children ask, such as ‘Why is the sky blue?’ and ‘What makes the colours in a rainbow?’ It perfectly complements a child’s natural curiosity. As young children discover the world around them, the more they will learn about and develop a thirst for science.
