Good afternoon parents and guardians,
We are now on the homeward stretch towards the end of Term 1 and the students are working hard on assessments before the last day of classes next Wednesday.
Our new administration building had two pours of concrete this week, with another to follow next Tuesday. The car park will need to be closed for the morning and may reopen for the afternoon pick up time. Thank you to all families for using the alternative car parking area in the paddock. Please keep an eye out for our staff directing traffic on Tuesday next week.
Head of Primary
Year 1 and Year 6 both held open mornings this week to show off the children’s work in science this term. Who knows, the next Elon Musk may be in one of these photos!!
The students had a great time this week trying out our new handball court. Mr Adams is currently putting the final touches on a new cubby house for the P-2 area – photos next week!

Edward Sarroff, TMC Year 12 captain from 2014, presented drama workshops to Prep, Year 1 and Year 2 this week. The children had an amazing time in their activities and enjoyed getting professional instruction.

Radio Lollipop Donation
On the evening of March 29, TMC captains are joining me at the Gold Coast University Hospital to make our donation which was supported by our College community at a dress up day on March 14. In total, our school community raised $2000 for this worthwhile charity! I look forward to sharing photos with everyone from next Thursday’s donation.
