TEACHER’S TRAINING SEMINARS

We, at Trinity Central School, believe in qualitative education. And this is possible, when our teachers, not only teach, but know what they teach. There’s a lot more to any subject, other than theory, facts and figures. The closing week of May, saw the teachers of Trinity Central School, back to do a whole lot of learning and unlearning.
