Term 3 Week 4.

Semester Two.

College students on the snow trip are having a wonderful time – lots of snow! All back at school on Monday.

Our Yr 7 2016 Orientation Day and Primary 2016 Info Session went well. Lots of parents, with lots of questions. We are delighted to welcome these families into the College for next year.

Teachers and students made the day a delight for next year’s Yr 7 class. Thank you to all involved and of course to our wonderful P&F providing the sausage sizzle.

This is an important reminder for you to be aware that:

  • Friday 28th TMC closed due to Gold Coast Show – TMC closed for classes. TMC Holiday club will run this day if parents require this service.

NAPLAN results are in and TMC students should be very proud. In our secondary campus Yr 9 and Yr 7 did exceptionally well within all areas – reading, writing, spelling, grammar & punctuation, numeracy –  above State average and even exceeding other State and national averages. In our newly established primary campus we are very pleased with Yr 5 and Yr 3 efforts. Our students are a credit to their teachers and families. Well done to all.

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.

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 weekend.
