With so much going on the school is hosting its annual Twilight Showcase Open Night Event starting at 3.30pm today and finishing at 6.30pm.

It's a way the school can continue to grow by showcasing why it has been the popular choice for parents and students since it opened in 1985 as Gladstone Christian Community School and catered for primary education.

Over the years the college grew and extended in 1993 to include full- pre-school program.

In 1998 the college changes its name to Trinity College as it prepared to introduce secondary school.

The kindergarten program was introduced in 2012, catering for families wishing to have their children in a Christian early childhood setting.

In 2013 Trinity College commence senior secondary and now offers education from kindergarten to Year 12 on one site.

But it's not just the buildings and growth that has made it popular choice for parents and kids a like.

The school celebrates its student's achievements from unicycling, eisteddfod results, academic to being positive role models in the community.
