Term 2 Week 10.
Semester One ends and so much has been accomplished – well done and thank you to all!
Reports go out early next week and any interviews requested with teachers are arranged through the office, as we had the formal Parent-Teacher Interviews at the start of this term.
The office is open during the holidays 8am – 4pm daily.
First day back is Monday 20th July – see you all then.
Next term we will have a new entrance located on the Primary Campus and the exit will remain as now – it will be a one way internal road with a drop off zone and parking bays for Primary and Secondary. All students dropped off in this car park will enter grounds via the gate at Drop-off area. Primary walk down to their rooms, and Yr 5 & Yr 6 continue on to the walkway over to the secondary campus and follow pathways to MKLC. Secondary students walk through pathway at Rm 5 & 6 near Music Room.
Our current entrance will not be open next term for the public and will allow for more room in the bus bay. We are planning an upgrade of the whole bus bay area over the Xmas holidays.
Before and After- school Care Club as well as Holiday Club will be in the Cubby House on the Primary Campus.
PLC will have the concrete coloured during the holidays so all will be in readiness for next term.
The Primary Playground and Secondary Basketball Court and the new car park will be ready for the start of Term 3.
Japanese Visitors arrive on Saturday 18th July and those Host Families are required for collection at 2pm in the Hub. A big thank you to those families who have generously volunteered to host the Japanese and share in this unique and rewarding experience. Our visitors are with us until Wednesday 29th July and we are very fortunate to involve the whole College in this cultural exchange.

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.

Have a safe and enjoyable holiday.
