Our History

The Parish of Holy Trinity, Curtin was established on 2nd February 1965, by His Grace Archbishop O'Brien. The Parish embraced the Woden Valley that consisted of Hughes and Curtin suburbs only. Father Benedict Lynch was appointed Parish Priest.

Holy Trinity School was blessed and opened on 23rd October 1966 and made history by being the first Australian Catholic Primary School to be constructed with Commonwealth capital funding support.

The first teachers at Holy Trinity were: Sister Conrad (Matilde) Harnischfeger, Sister M. Esther (Helen) Dean, Sister M. Pierina (Valerie) Green and Shirley Matthews, who was the only lay teacher.

The foundation Sisters of Charity community resided at Dawson Street, Curtin, for some months until their convent was built at 22 Theodore St adjacent to the school, and included our teaching Sisters and Sister Joan McKenna who taught at Catholic Girls High School (St Clare’s College), Griffith.
