Trinity Catholic Primary School is situated in the north of Richmond. It is rich in history and cultural diversity.


We are known as a close knit, diverse learning community with strong values. Individual attention and the full development of each student is our highest priority.


We provide a vibrant, diverse and innovative approach to learning where the social, emotional and spiritual needs of each child are met.


Our History:

Trinity Catholic Primary School (formerly St James School) has enjoyed a Church crosseslong history which dates back to 1935 when it was run by the Sisters of St Joseph.


In more recent times we have experienced two mergers. In 2006 St James Primary School, North Richmond and St Ignatius Primary School, Richmond merged to form Trinity Catholic Primary School. 2008 saw the closure of St John the Evangelist school, East Melbourne. In 2009, Trinity Catholic Primary School incorporated St John’s, East Melbourne students into the school population. We now enjoy new buildings, a new school uniform and logo and a new vision which respects our history, blending our strong identity as Trinity Catholic School.


Moving Forward:

In a world of rapid change and development, Trinity Catholic Primary School continues to provide a challenging and comprehensive curriculum designed to assist students to succeed to their full potential.


Parents, students and staff work together to achieve excellence in learning and teaching and to foster individual potentialin a vibrant and caring learning environment.




We strive to build a positive learning environment which encourages:

  • a love of learning;
  • confidence;
  • risk taking;
  • individual reflection and goal setting; and,
  • development of personal initiative and life skills.
