The four awards

There are four awards: Stage 1, 2 or 3 and a School Show award. Teachers are encouraged to link language-based performances to themes they are covering in class. Performance goals and language goals for each stage are listed in the Guide for Teachers.

It is recommended that learners have:

  • Six months to one year of English language learning experience before entering at Stage 1
  • One to two years of English language experience before entering at Stage 2
  • Two or more years of English language experience before entering at Stage 3.

Stage 1, 2, 3 awards
(groups of 5-40 children)
Schools enrol groups of children at Stage 1, 2 or 3 depending on the English language ability of the class.  Performance times last 5-30 minutes depending on the stage. 

School Show award
(groups of up to 300 children)
Schools prepare a School Show group and book a Trinity Stars expert to watch the dress rehearsal. Performances last 30-90 minutes.

Project work
For each award learners must produce a class or individual project based on their performance or performance theme. The Trinity Stars expert will view and stamp the project on the same days as the performance.
