A group of students ready to start at Sunbury’s newest school next year were excited to get a sneak peek at their school uniform.

Holy Trinity Catholic Primary School’s new uniform incorporates the colour palette of purple, teal and gold – colours that are represented in the school’s logo and building design.

The inspiration for the main colour purple came from the small chocolate lily – a native grassland wildflower that was found on the land the school was built on.

School principal Krystine Hocking said it was a smart-looking uniform that her pupils can have pride in wearing.

Ms Hocking said the new buildings were on track for completion and teacher appointments have been finalised. She is looking forward to introducing staff to her pupils over the coming weeks.

“I am passionate about nurturing an innovative learning environment, that caters for the diverse needs of all students, ensuring that all achievements are celebrated,” Ms Hocking said.

“When interviewing and appointing our teachers, I was looking for educators who share this passion.”

Enrolments are still being taken for Holy Trinity. Interested families are encouraged to call 0473 925 326. The new school is located at 145 Mitchells Lane, Sunbury.
