About Us



Trinity Catholic Primary School is a welcoming Jesuit school. We are situated in the north of Richmond.


Trinity 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, inclusive 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 a close relationship with the Parish, 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 then saw the closure of St John the Evangelist school, East Melbourne and in 2009 Trinity Catholic Primary School incorporated St John’s students into the school population.

We are proud of our bright and modern facilities, affordable fee structure and contemporary vision which acknowledges this history, whilst embracing our strong identity as Trinity Catholic School.

 Moving Forward:

In a world of rapid change and development, Trinity Catholic Primary School provides a personalised, 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 potential in 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
  • development of personal initiative and life skills
