Term 2 Week 8.

Under 8s Day was a success despite rain, yet again. How wonderful to see such imagination by our young ones in designing great costumes – well done to Mums and Dads too for the creative input! It was so rewarding to catch up with parents and hear so many very positive reports about our college and teachers.

Our P&F meeting yesterday went well with lots of ideas from parents regarding the 20 yr Anniversary Celebration. Please try to make these monthly meetings as it is an excellent way to meet families and help out with the college.

We will be doing the big move across to the Primary Learning Centre (PLC) next week. How exciting to be in and all moved and set-up within a few days of that week. Secondary class rooms and oval will be restored and recovered in the following few days. Term 3 will be a welcomed relief to a complete campus for Primary and Secondary on their own turf. Again a big thank you to all for your patience and understanding through this building project.

The Primary Playground and Secondary Basketball Court and the new carpark will be ready for the start of Term 3.

Primary Campus 2016: 

TMC Board has approved next stage of development for Primary being Prep and Yr 1 buildings which are positioned in front of the existing building and adds another 4 classrooms to that campus – due for completion semester 2 2016.

20Yr Anniversary Celebration is Saturday 25th July which will also include the official opening of the Primary.

Yr 10 Work Experience is currently under review to maximise benefits for our students – it will still be in the last week of Term 3 but will undergo some changes. The Work Studies teachers are initiating career research and student preparation for this week – some will go out to seek school-based traineeships and apprenticeships, others will focus on university opportunities during that week and others will look at experiencing the work force environment. Students will be actively involved in seeking out placements for this week – building skills and taking ownership and responsibility.  For information regarding work experience, please click the following link.

Have a safe and enjoyable week-end.
