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

Next Week @ TC 20/4/2018

To the TC Community,

In this weeks Announcements:

There have been assemblies held this week where we have as a community looked at some of the "social norms" that we have here at TC, in particular those that we are looking to improve apon and those that we do really well. We have a great community that all are amazing at the way that we look after each other. We all treat each other as equals, a result of our one person policy, in terms of the level of respect that we give each other. We understand that all of us have different roles and responsibilities, but we know that it doesn't matter who you are, or how long you have been here @ TC we are all worthy of these equal levels of respect. This One Person Policy is one of the fundamental philosophies that we have here at TC, along with the "Yes is the Default" rule.

I am looking forward to seeing everyone at the Athletics Carnival on Monday. If the success of the Swimming Carnival is anything to go by this will be another event to build up the community spirit whilst taking part in the many activities taking place during the day, as well as giving the elite level competitors an opportunity to compete in the serious events.

Athletics Carnival and Sports Update:

The TC Community Athletics will be happening on Monday at Doncaster Athletics Track (23/4).  Students are encouraged to make their own way there but buses will drop students at the track rather than school.  We will also have a shuttle bus to transport students from TC to the track if needed.  This will depart at 8.45am from the Sports Centre.  The carnival starts at 9am and will finish at 3pm where buses will be waiting to take students home otherwise students will need to find their own way home.  As it is a whole school event, all students are expected to attend.  As well as the athletics, there will be novelty events, music, media coverage and TC market offering BBQ, sweets stalls, guitar lessons, face painting.  There will also be a fancy dress competition so all students are encouraged to dress in their community colours- blue (planets), green (Greek Gods), gold (Egyptian Gods).  We look forward to a fun day as a community๐Ÿ˜Š

Lunchtime Sports Training:

MON: Badminton (Sports Centre), Table tennis (S wing)

TUES: Girls AFL (oval), Soccer (Sports Centre)

THURS: Boys netball (Sports Centre)

Each design needs a total of 25 orders or higher to go ahead. If you order a design that has less orders we can swap the colour or design to a different option or you can receive a refund.

STUDENT POSITIONS ON COLLEGE COUNCIL

From 2018 all Victorian government secondary school councils must conduct their Student member school council election process. There are two positions available. The attached documents provide information on the roles and responsibilities of this new category.

Student members of school council will have the same role and responsibilities as other council members, including full voting rights.

Student members will be expected to prepare for and attend all council meetings, in line with the requirements for school councillors.

If you want to nominate yourself or another student for one of the two student positions please see Peter Ellis.

Have a good weekend,

Peter
