Term 1 Week 10
Term 2 commences Monday 20th April.
Last week of Term 1:
What a busy and rewarding term we have had. The last day was particularly rewarding with the Easter Bonnet Parade and Easter Raffle. What a delightful to finish the term with this and thanks to all those parents who volunteered their time wrapping up the prizes and cooking sausages! Yr 4 Endangered Species Expo was fascinating – well done students and Mrs Noel. A big thank you to all our volunteers for your help this term – we really couldn’t manage without you. Next term is looking just as exciting – starting with Yr 5 & 6 Camp on first day back. ANZAC special assembly on Thursday 23rd at 11.30am (details out soon for parent invitation) – this is also planned as our Cross-Country first up 9am at Sports Complex – hope the weather is better!
I wish all our families a happy and safe Easter.
ANZAC Update: At the end of the community march, students will be dismissed into the care of their parents for the ceremony, unlike in previous years when we all sat together (some parents may decide to take little ones home if you feel the ceremony will be taxing on them). Only Yr 12 Captains and Yr 6 Captains will stay and sit with Mrs Melbourne, Mr Stevens and Mrs Stevens for the ceremony.
Term 1 Reports:
These will be emailed in first week of the holidays. They are an interim report only (no grades) and teacher/parent interviews follow in Term 2 Monday 27th April – book on-line http://www.tmc.qld.edu.au/parent-teacher-interviews/. Be aware that it is not compulsory to attend an interview unless a teacher has requested this on your child’s report. We did hold a “Meet the Teacher” night earlier in the term, which was a big success. The interview sessions are for particular issues/concerns. Of course you can make an appointment to see a teacher at a convenient time through-out the year if this particular night does not suit.
Primary Campus Building Up-date:
There is plenty of action and progress but unfortunately the primary site will not be completed until end of May (approx). That means, of course, that we must stay as we are at present on this campus until then. It is pleasing to report that campus life for all students is running smoothly but we will be pleased when we can move onto two campuses. Again a sincere thank you for everyone’s patience and understanding – parents, students, teachers and staff. I think we will have to have a special celebration when we do make the move!
The College marches in the community on ANZAC Day. Although this is on Saturday 25th April and is deemed a public holiday it is our expectation that all students march. Please advise me via email if you have other commitments on this day – [email protected] At the end of the community march, students will be dismissed into the care of their parents for the ceremony, unlike in previous years when we all sat together (some parents may decide to take little ones home if you feel the ceremony will be taxing on them). Only Yr 12 Captains and Yr 6 Captains will stay and sit with Mrs Melbourne, Mr Stevens and Mrs Stevens for the ceremony. This year is very important to commemorate the 100 year anniversary. Our College will also hold a special assembly on Thursday 23rd at 11.30am in which every student will receive a commemorative bronze coin.
Have a safe and enjoyable week-end
