Next Week @ TC

To the TC Community,

Please find below some of our announcements for next week. There is a lot of emphasis being placed on Course Planning in these announcements. Term 3 is an important time in this process as students will all be making their subject selections for 2019 over the next 6 weeks. We would highly encourage that parents attend these sessions, if you have not done so in the past, as our process is very different from other schools due to our individualised approach to learning.

PARENT AND STUDENT WORKSHOP - Organisation and time management

The importance of organisational and time management skills for students

Parents and students are invited to attend this workshop which focuses on understanding what time management really means, why it is important and the need for students to actually ‘see time’; and learn tips and strategies to ensure students also understand and can implement this and other skills for success at school and in life.

Other topics covered include:

  • understanding the role organisation plays
  • homework process, environment and plans
  • the study cycle 
  • procrastination and managing distractions
  • mindset. 

Ensure good habits are established in the 2018 school year and that your child has the necessary skills to maximise their potential.

Student Feedback Survey Taking Place in the Next Two Weeks

Over the next two weeks, students will be completing a survey in every one of their classes in order to give feedback to the classroom teacher. This short survey will be taking place in every class in order to give the members of staff at TC an opportunity to gain feedback, in order to plan for their own professional development. All feedback received is going to kept confidential as students names are not recorded by the survey. For those interested, we are using the program PIVOT to collect this feedback. This program has been created using research and tested in many schools around Victoria.

Last weeks announcements:

2019 Subject Expo

On Wednesday 8 August, 2018 we are bringing back a Subject Expo to TC. At the Subject Expo, we will be providing and sharing information about every elective subject that is on offer for the 2019 Subject Selection in the soon to be published 2019 Subject Handbook. It is a really important part of the subject selection process, simply because we have so many great elective subjects on offer that it can be difficult for students and families to know enough about each one in enough detail to make the best informed choice possible. Teachers, Careers Staff and students currently studying the elective/s will be available to discuss each elective subject, face-to-face, so that students and families can make the very best informed choices about which electives will be most suitable for them to study in Semester 1, 2019.

The Subject Expo starts at 2.30pm, finishes at 6.45pm and will take place in the ‘S’ Wing.

We look forward to welcoming you to the event.

REQUEST FOR DONATIONS OF WARM CLOTHES TO HELP SSDP PROJECT TO DONATE TO THE HOMELESS

A message from some of our students: As part of our SSDP Project we are collecting warm clothes to donate to the homeless. We have a clothes rack and a box in the RC so that people can put their old clothes there. If you have any warm clothes that you would like to donate, please drop them off at the RC. Thanks.

Have a good weekend,

Peter
