Term 1 Week 9
End of Term 1 – last day next Wednesday.
Term 2 commences Monday 20th April.
1st April – last day of term:
Wednesday 1st April we have Cross-country (Long Road) and the Easter Bonnet Parade and Raffle (TMC). An invitation with all details has been sent out to parents – hope to see you here.
Please park at the back of TMC secondary campus – follow the driveway along the tennis court to the rear fenced off car park for visitors. Parents will have the upstairs room JWRC for tea and coffee and cake and can join in the fun as scheduled.
Music – next week:
Music will be held on Tuesday due to the student-free day on Thursday. Ensure your child brings his/her musical instrument.
TMC Has Talent (secondary students only):
What a fabulous event – what fabulous talented students we have. It was very pleasing to see so many parents supporting the acts.
Primary Assembly on Friday:
It was very pleasing to see so many primary students receiving awards today. The Yr 3 class presented Mr Stevens and me with a Cookbook of Favourite Recipes – well done!
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
