Trinity Catholic College is a Catholic co-ed high school located in New South Wales, Australia. The college, separated into two campuses, known as Trinity Junior Catholic College and Trinity Senior Catholic College, is situated in Regents Park and Auburn. It is a co-educational secondary college providing Catholic education for students in Years 7-12 in the Auburn, Berala, Regents Park, Sefton, Homebush West and Lidcombe region.
Trinity Catholic College was founded in 1995 from an amalgamation of three schools: Benedict College, Auburn, St John's Girls' High, Auburn and St Peter Chanel Girl's High School, Regents Park. The College is located on two campuses. The Regents Park campus (Trinity Junior Catholic College) offers places to students in Years 7 and 8, while the Auburn campus (Trinity Senior Catholic College) is for students in Years 9 to 12.
These schools had a tradition of Catholic education. The Sisters of Charity, the first Religious Sisters to work in Australia, began a school at Auburn in 1893, which became St John's Regional College for Girls. The inspiration of Blessed Mary MacKillop was handed down in St Peter Chanel Girls' High at Regents Park, founded in 1953 by the Sisters of St Joseph. The tradition of the Marist Brothers was established in 1942 with the foundation of a boys' school at Auburn which eventually became the senior Secondary school of the district, Benedict College. In present times, several Marist Brothers are involved in the running of the school.
