TRINITY Catholic College will close its boarding services will close at the end of the year, effectively ending over 100 years of tradition.
Trinity principal Mary-Jane Carroll-Fajarda announced the closure to the 43 boarding students at their Monday night chapel service.
A previous letter from the Catholic Education Commission stated that Trinity would need 70 boarders this year to keep the boarding facilities afloat.
The Catholic Education Office's Mark Hogan said the decision to close the boarding services due to lack of students had only recently been confirmed.
"It was finalised within the last few days," Mr Hogan said.
"There had been an early decision last year to work towards a closure if the numbers couldn't reach a certain level (and) the numbers are down."
Mr Hogan said while the boarding facilities were set to close, Trinity would assist students and their families in finding viable options for their education.
"The current boarders will certainly be looked after until the end of the year," he said.
