Term 3 Week 3.

Semester Two.

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.

Many secondary TMC students go on the Snow Trip this weekend. We wish them and our teachers a fabulous time!

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.
