Mr David Mowbray
With winter finishing this week we are reminded that the term is rapidly coming to a close. We are all looking to warm ourselves in the emerging sun to provide an energy boost for the last 3 weeks and to continue with the upward direction in positivity and growth that we are creating here at TC.
Once again the College has been very busy for staff and students, and also for parents, as we have conducted the Student - Teacher – Parent interviews at the Junior Campus and the Course Counselling sessions for parents and students on the Senior Campus.
We think that both parent events went well…what do you think? We would love to hear from you about how we can improve these experiences.
Just a reminder that the Parent Opinion survey has been extended to midnight on Sunday 3rd September.
Currently, all Staff are undertaking the annual DET survey to identify school strengths and areas for improvement in: school climate; teaching and learning; school leadership; professional learning and staff safety; and wellbeing. The ultimate focus is to continue to create and build a school environment that allows us to have a strong positive impact on student outcomes.
By end of this week I will have been on two major interview panels that will impact on our school next year. The first was the Leading Teacher panel to determine which candidates from across the state are best to lead four of our year level cohorts – 7, 8, 9 and VCE in 2017. I will let you know the outcome in the next edition.
The second panel is to identify our 2017 School Captains. This high profile leadership position is an important symbolic and student voice role that enables a strong connection between the adults and students in the school, and invaluably links us to the community through various forums and functions. Once again we will announce the results later in the year.
