Term 2 Week 3.
Yr 11 Camp: Students and teachers are having a wonderful camp with fabulous weather – Mr Byrnes even sent through a photo of enjoying the beach! Here at the College I had the absolute pleasure of supervising Mr Hoyne’s Yr 9 Science class in his absence. How delightful it was to experience first hand our well-behaved and well-mannered students – they all received an excellence sticker from me.
NAPLAN is next week on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday for Yr 3, 5, 7, 9. We know all students are prepared and we wish them well. We provide a P&F sponsored muffin and popper for these students before the testing days. Parents please ensure a restful night and breakfast as well.
Primary Campus: The new Primary driveway has began construction – this will be completed within a week. Unfortunately the footpath has been cut off during construction. Students walking to school from 8.15 am – 8.45 am and leaving school from 2.50pm – 3.10pm will be supervised to cross the road at that point before continuing on along the footpath.
Primary Learning Centre (PLC) is due for completion early June – we will move Primary classes across straight away. The new primary playground is ready for installation but of course we are dictated to by the current civil works going on – it will be installed when the project manager gives the green light. I believe that it will coincide with the completion of the project’s earthworks and our move across into the Primary Campus. TMC Board have 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.
20Yr Anniversary Celebration is Saturday 25th July which will also include the official opening of the Primary.
Eduquest (Yr 6 from other schools- entering as individuals for this challenge day) will take place on Saturday 30th May – this does not involve current TMC students except student leaders and SRC members are required as helpers.
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 week-end and I trust that all our mums get spoilt for Mother’s Day!
