Benedict College (Trinity Catholic College)
Trinity Catholic College is a dual-campus independent Roman Catholic co-educational secondary day school, located in the inner western suburbs of Auburn and Regents Park, in Sydney, New South Wales. Students in Years 7 and 8 are located at the Regents Park campus, and students from Years 9 to 12 are located at the Auburn campus.
The College was founded in 1995 from an amalgamation of three schools: Benedict College, Auburn, St John’s Regional College for Girls, Auburn and St Peter Chanel Girls’ High, Regents Park. The College follows the religious tradition of the Marist Brothers. This tradition was established in 1942 with the foundation of a boys’ school at Auburn, which eventually became the senior Secondary school of the district, Benedict College.
Like many other Marist schools around Australia, Benedict College/Trinity Catholic College has become embroiled in cases involving child sexual abuse. One such example is Brother Terry Mulligan who was sentenced in Sydney in 2000 to 6 months periodic detention for indecent assaults against two boys. The abuse had a very detrimental impact on the two boys where one stated at the time of the court hearing that the incident had caused his life to become a blur of drugs, alcohol and rage.
We invite former students of Benedict College, teachers and parents to contact us to tell us confidentially what information they may have, and we will explain what options are available to help with these cases.
