Term 2 Week 8

Year 11 & 12 students will commence their exam block next Wednesday and only need to attend for exams. Students have been given their schedule.

The last day of term for students is Wednesday 13th June when all students are required. Secondary students have the Athletics Carnival and Primary have the Talent Quest. The last two days of the term are student-free days, however Yr 12 are required for the practice QCS.

Reports will be emailed out in the first week of the holidays and any request for an interview with a teacher can be made through the office. The office is open through-out the holidays.

At the end of term we sadly say farewell to Mrs Bowers, who is heading to London with her husband. We wish her all the best and she will be very missed! We congratulate Miss Green, who is getting married in the holidays.

These holidays have 3 weeks and first day back for everyone is Monday 11th July.

New Primary building project will begin in the holidays with 4 new classrooms to be added by the end of this year. The purpose built Prep classroom is very exciting and as much as we all love the “Cubby House” the Architects have developed a fabulous area for our little ones.

The car park is planned for extension during these coming holidays, but may run over a couple of weeks into the new term. We are hoping that there will be minimal disruption to the current carpark and ask parents to park on our new property if space becomes limited – this is where all of our staff park. There will be plenty of info and signs to assist at the start of the term. There is also parking on the grass area in front of the Primary, but please do not park on the opposite side of the road.

P&F next meeting is  8th June at 2pm – hope to see you there.

Year 10 Work Experience is a great opportunity for students to experience either a Workplace or have a “Taste of University” and is held from 12th September until the 16th of September.  Year 10 Work Experience Information has been emailed to all year 10 students and they are now able to start organising their placement.

Absences need to be communicated to the office as a priority, to assist parents we have created an Absences notification tool on our website available 24hrs 7 days per week. Please email [email protected] advising of student name, reason, date from – to, or you may use the student absences form here.

Parent/Guardian help – TMC Policy is for visiting parents that are attending to the school for any other means than collecting their student must sign in at the office and wear a Visitor’s pass.

Furthermore, Parents are not to use student toilets – this is mandatory for safety reasons. Parents can use the disabled toilets only. There is signage to that effect.
On the website there is a Forms link for parents to download forms as required. Also online payments are now available on our website for creditcard payments for tuition/excursions/uniforms.

Any student arriving late – after 9am – must report to the office to sign-in before proceeding to class. This is extremely important due to the need of accurate attendance records in the advent of an emergency.

Digital Resource Centre (DRC) – Digital Library. Our Digital Resource Centre started operating in Term 4 last year.To access the DRC you will need to use your child’s TMC email address and password. For those unsure of your email address, it should be the initial of your first name, then your last name, with @tmc.qld.edu.au at the end.Please see your child’s teacher if you are unsure about the password. e.g. [email protected] step-by-step guide of how to access the DRC is here, including Apple & Android apps:

Equestrian is headed by two girls in Yr 10 this year. Kate Green and Katherine Glover have volunteered to supply information to our keen Equestrian students to assist them to follow the events through-out the year.

Campus 2017:We are planning another 4 classrooms on the secondary site next to the MKLC for 2017 construction period. This building will be called the Maureen Nicholls Learning Centre.
