The Course Information Booklet, outlining the courses on offer, will be released on Wednesday 4 January when the office returns from the Christmas break. 
The Enrolment Form, and subsequent online enrolment options, will only be made available from Monday 9 January when enrolments open to the TSFS Community. 
This way, you will have plenty of time to plan and assess your own schedule and commitments prior to selecting your classes. To ensure fairness, all forms received during the first week of enrolments (Monday 9 January - Friday 13 January), are collectively held together and then selected at random when admin staff begin processing Enrolment Forms the following week from Monday 16 January. 

Further details regarding the enrolment process will be provided on Wednesday 4 January, with the release of the 2023 Program for Term One and Two. If you are a new student and would like to receive the program upon it's release, please email us at reception@tsfs.org.au and request your details to be added to our Expression of Interest list.

2023 Summer School Program now available!

Summer School Dates: 9 - 27 January 2023

Trinity School for Seniors offers a casual three week 'Summer School' program during the January school holidays which provides the perfect opportunity to try out a variety of classes that you might not normally consider during term time.

Due to the popularity of our previous holiday programs, we are taking bookings for ALL Summer School classes, please complete a booking form to reserve your place. Get in quick before limited places fill up! If you would like to view all classes on offer in Summer School 2023- click here. This will download a PDF of the program for you to plan what classes you would like to book in for.

When planning your Summer School attendance, please familiarise yourself with the cost and booking requirements for each class you attend. The majority of classes simply incur a $2 donation on arrival which is payable to your tutor, however there is one event that incurs a $12 fee which is payable at TSFS Reception prior to your attendance.

All money raised during Summer School is used to offset the running costs of our termly programs or to purchase much needed resources for our school community to use and enjoy.

Summer School is the ideal time for new students to join in, as this short program provides a wonderful chance for members of the public to get a feel for the school and a taste of some of the fabulous courses on offer.

Introducing our "Reference Brochure for WA Seniors"

This brochure has been produced by Trinity School for Seniors with WA senior citizens in mind. It aims to help seniors find and access specific information relating to their age group within the Perth Metropolitan Area. Our focus is to help our members stay connected to useful services on offer within the Perth Metropolitan Area.

This brochure originally existed as a folder on the Trinity School for Seniors’ Reception desk to assist our members to find activities and placement in organisations when demand for TSFS classes heavily exceeded supply. Over the years this folder grew to include contact information for various other services and support agencies relevant to our members’ needs. In 2019, we have published this brochure as a condensed yet comprehensive version that we can now distribute amongst our members so they can keep this useful reference brochure on hand for whenever they are in need.

Resources listed in this brochure relate to:
   • Local Community Centres, Groups and Clubs
   • Organisations, Support Agencies and Groups
   • Computer and Technology
   • Events and Expos
   • Senior Specific Media
   • Libraries
   • Local Councils offering Senior Specific programs.

We hope this brochure assists WA seniors with connecting to helpful support resources and keeping active in their community.
