To co-create high quality learning experiences within an inclusive and supportive community
— TC2018-2021 Our Vision

Next Week @ TC - 19th October 2018

To the TC Community,

I would like to begin this weeks announcements by congratulating our 2018 Grads following on from their final official day yesterday. The Grad final assembly is always a highlight for the year and yesterday did not disappoint as the student spoke about their experiences of school, performed musical items and then had their final roll call. We then moved on to the grad dinner held at San Remo in Carlton North for further celebrations as a community. The whole day was a great success as we saw our 100+ Grads take part in the celebration of their successful time here @ TC.
