Good afternoon parents and guardians,

Wow! What an amazing swimming carnival today.  I am so proud of all the children who took part – not one of them gave up and they cheered each other on in every race.  The carnival was a huge success and the positive attitude displayed by the students, the parents who were able to be there, and our wonderful TMC staff encouraged everyone to perform their very best!

Over the weekend, I will tally up the points for the age champion medals and the overall house winner.  The medals and the Melbourne Cup, our perpetual sports trophy, will be handed out at the assembly this coming Monday.  I will also hand out some extra ribbons to the Prep – Year 2 students who challenged themselves in their optional 25m freestyle race.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns about any matters in the Primary school, please drop by and see me – my door is always open!

Kind regards,

Mark Stevens

Head of Primary

2018 Stationery Lists

The School Locker, our new uniform and stationery supplier, is taking 2018 stationery orders for our Primary school.

It is compulsory for Year 1 – 6 students to have all the items on the stationery list for the start of Term 1 each year.  Prep students are provided with stationery equipment by TMC.  If you already have some of the items on the list, these can easily be deleted online before processing your order.  Orders received by November 24, 2017, are guaranteed to arrive before January 22, 2018, (start of Term 1) and will qualify for FREE DELIVERY.

The School Locker is an online store which is a convenient way to order from the comfort of your own home, but it does also have a store located in Loganholme (near Harvey Norman) if you would prefer to shop in person.  When you shop in-store please ask for the TMC rebate card that gives a rebate from in-store purchases back to the College.
Student Representative Council Salvation Army Christmas Food Drive
The Primary SRC are proud to be involved in the Salvation Army Christmas Food Drive.  Students may bring in donations from now until the end of the school year which the Salvos will pass along to families in need.  The Christmas period is the often the saddest time for many groups of people doing it tough and it was wonderful to see how excited the SRC students were when they heard that there is something they can do to help.  Please bring donations of non-perishable food, Christmas decorations, table decor or additional grocery items to your child’s classroom.  Thank you for your support!
