From the Principal Class

Welcome to Term 3

A warm welcome back to Term 3 and welcome to the new students who have commenced at the College this term. We hope everyone is relaxed and ready for another productive semester. Already this term there have been so many fabulous things happening around the school making it hard to believe we are only just over four weeks into Term 3: Kanga Cup, Course Counselling, the Year 12 formal, Alpine School, the Maths competition, Healthy Bones Week,  Interschool Sports and the Languages poetry competitions and cultural excursions are just some of the events that have contributed, in many ways, to providing enriching and challenging experiences for our students. Thanks and congratulations to all our staff who have coordinated and participated in these activities.

 

This term we welcome a number of new staff who have taken on positions at the college. A particular welcome Bronte Minou who takes up the ES Domestic Arts Positon. Bronte will be based in the Food Technology teacher workspace and will be supporting the Food Technology teachers – Ms Apap, Johnson, Ms Parkinson and Ms Swingler. Welcome back to Ms Villanti who takes up the Italian position for this term. Ms Villanti filled in at the end of last term in a CRT capacity. We also welcome back Ms Rose-Emtsis and Ms Gok who both return from leave. Mr Russell and Ms Catania (formerly known as Ms Sciberras) also return from leave. Finally welcome back to Mr Hayashi and Ms Parkinson who also return back to school from leave in Term 2. There are a number of changes also occurring from this term for parents and students to be aware of.  Ms  Ali will be supporting Mr Anfuso in T16 for this term from Monday to Thursday and Ms Winnacott will be in T16 on Fridays. 

TLSC 25

Taylors Lakes Secondary College's 25th Year Celebration Day will be held at the college on Sunday October 22nd 2017 from 1pm - 4pm. This is where current and former students, staff and families can come together and celebrate the achievements of the college from the last 25 years. It is also an opportunity for former students to meet with their past teachers  and share some good memories. Please see the photo posters below  or by visiting the facebook page TLSC 25th

Anniversary for further information. Looking forward to seeing everyone there.

 

 

As part of the 25th Year Celebrations, the College took a whole school photo on July 31st 2017 with more than 1500 students and staff on the oval. This is the first time the college has taken a whole school photo.  We are also producing a  25th Anniversary Edition of the TLSC Magazine this year. To get a copy of this year’s 25th Anniversary edition of the TLSC School Magazine students need to pay ($15.00 only) at the General Office by end of Term 3. Please make sure you do not miss out!

Facilities News

There has been a lot happening at the school over the recent weeks with room upgrades and new student facilities now completed. This has been accomplished the school’s commitment to providing the best teaching and learning environment we can for our staff and students.

Over the break there has been a lot of general maintenance done around the college. Some of the projects include:

 

New Photocopiers and Printers – these have been installed and ready to go. Photocopiers are located in the Photocopy Room (1 Colour and 1 Black and White), the Library (2 Colour photocopiers) and one Colour photocopier in the SPACE.   Small copiers that have a print/copy/scan function have also been placed in the Maths/Science, Arts/Tech and PE TWS as well as a new one in the staffroom, VCE Study Room, General Office and Student Wellbeing Centre (H4).

 

PE Teacher Workspace - This has been upgraded with new carpet, new ceiling tiles and a fresh coat of paint. This is the last of the teacher workspaces to be upgraded.

 

New Carpet in Classrooms:  H9, H18 have had new carpet laid and H17 has had the carpet repaired. 

 

Technology Rooms Upgrade: T1 has been repainted completely. We were aiming to do T2 and T3 as well but due to the extremely cold weather and the multiple coats of paint required, we were only able to finish one. The rest of the rooms will be completed over the mid semester break. 

 

New Computer Software: L2 and L3 have new computers installed and the computers formerly in these rooms (which are the newer machines) have been placed in other computer labs. The SPACE and VCE Study Room have also got more desktops in there now.  

 

Finally, the windows in the Maths/Science Teacher Workspace and Arts/Tech Teacher Workspace have been tinted for safety reasons and this has also been done for the windows in the PE Teacher Workspace. We have also had to deal with lots of plumbing maintenance over the break as well as continual upgrades and maintenance to the gardens. Monica, Con, Andrew and Dejan Jelicic (Year 11 VCAL student) have done a fantastic job over the break. 

 

What is exciting is that we have been advised that the college will be receiving new relocatable portables this term  to help support the learning environment of students at the college. We have been given the green light to receive up to 6 new classrooms (3 relocatable portables). This will see H13 - H18 be brand new classrooms in Term 4. These rooms are currently the oldest rooms in the college and although the college continues to allocate its own resources to help maintain these rooms each year, this will certainly help support in providing a clean and safe learning environment for all students. Yes along with this project will come a number of disruptions, however, it will be all worth it at the end when they are fully operational.

 

Year 12 VTAC Information Evening

A reminder that all parents of  Year 12 students are invited to the College on Wednesday August 16th 2017 from 7:00pm to 8:00pm. This evening is an opportunity to learn more about the VTAC process

and new requirements for the 2018 tertiary selection entry.  After the information session there will be time to ask questions to help you further understand the process. We hope to see you all here! Please contact the Careers Leader if you have any questions.

From the Principal Class

'GREASE' is the word...

Congratulations to all of the students and staff currently involved in this year’s college production, 'GREASE’. I am certain that it will be a fabulous show, showcasing the tremendous talent of our students. Rehearsals are well underway and we look forward to the opening night in late August. There will also be 3 matinee performances this year for primary school students.  

 

A special thank you to the staff who have put in many hours of work, including after school, holidays and weekends, under the leadership of Ms Gemma Jamieson, who is directing the show. It is a real team effort, and many staff have put in a huge amount of time and effort.

 

Tickets for the production have sold out.

Child Safe Standards and Safe School

Taylors Lakes Secondary College is committed to child safety. As a community we want children to be safe, happy and empowered. We support and respect all children. We are committed to their safety, participation and empowerment. There is zero tolerance of child abuse, and all allegations and safety concerns will be treated seriously and consistently with our robust policies and procedures.

 

In line with Government mandated compliance to Child Safe Standards, you will note some changes around the College. Please note the new signage asking all visitors to the school to sign in at the front office first. This includes all parents and past students. As part of signing into the school you will be agreeing to abide by the child safe standards. Additionally, staff can now be easily identified wearing a navy blue lanyard. Any other adults on the school premises including CRT’s, maintenance workers and any other visitors will also receive a coloured lanyard upon signing in at the front office.

 

Misinformation about the Safe Schools program has been published in a news article recently.  At Taylors Lakes Secondary College, we believe that all students have the right to feel safe and welcome at school despite their race, ethnicity, religion or sexuality.  We also know that it is a sad reality that LGBTI young people are more likely to be bullied at school than elsewhere and this has a major impact on their educational outcomes.  Safe Schools is not a part of the Victorian Curriculum, does not teach students to be LGBTI and does not ask young people to question their sexuality or gender. At Taylors Lakes Secondary College, we do not teach this program within our curriculum programs. 

Student Lunches

A reminder that students are not allowed to be brought fast food by friends/family at recess or lunchtime.  If a student has forgotten their packed lunch a parent can leave this at the front office to be given to the student.   Parents or friends should not be handing fast food over the fence to students.  This food may be confiscated or another consequence provided to a student found eating fast food on school grounds. 

Student Course Counselling

All students in Years 9 to 11 have now participated in this year's course counselling program. In addition to the Information Evenings for Year 9, 10 11 and LEAP students (and their parents) at the end of last month and with the support of the course advisors and Careers team, students selected subjects that will support their future pathway aspirations. We will now use the information gathered to start planning for 2018, including timetable construction and staffing. Thanks to the Careers team and the course advisors for their work with the students.

Student Attitudes and Parent Opinion Surveys 

Late last term students from Years 7 – 12 completed the annual Student Attitudes to School Survey and the preliminary results have arrived at the school. The College Leadership team is currently looking at the data and will conduct a more thorough analysis when the comparative data from the survey is sent to schools. Initial feedback from students seems to indicate that they feel safe and supported by their teachers and the school and are motivated to do their best. In the coming weeks, with the additional comparative data, we will provide detailed feedback to the students and outline how we will celebrate the things we are doing well and address any areas identified as needing improvement.

 

The annual Parent Opinion survey is now underway. This Department of Education survey is an important way for us to gather information about parent perceptions of the school. This information is used in a variety of ways to inform planning for 2018. If you are one of the families randomly selected to participate we would appreciate your support in filling out this survey. Further information is included in this newsletter.

What is coming up this term?

Lots of student activities are continually planned for the remainder of this term for our students but we have a few major events coming up in the next few weeks.

  • Soccer Academy: Kanga Cup Celebrations - Week 6 August 23rd
  • College Production: 'GREASE' – Week 7 (August 28th  – September 1st)
  • Italian Homestay – Week 8 (September 5th – 11th)
  • Parent Teacher Interviews Monday Week 9 (September 11th)
  • Year 10 Gold Coast Tour/Alternative Week  10 (September 18th - September 22nd)

We also the 15 students and 3 staff traveling off to Japan during the Term 3 holidays to participate in the Japanese Study and Homestay Tour. The group will return at the end of the Week 1.

And finally,

Thank you to all of you, as parents, who ensure that your children follow the uniform requirements and arrive on time for school each day.  We expect students to be in class, ready to learn on the second bell.  We wish everyone a successful Term 3.

Parent Opinion Survey & Compass

We want our parents to tell us what they think

Our school is conducting a survey to find out what parents think of our school. The Parent Opinion Survey is an annual survey offered by the Department of Education and Training that is conducted amongst a sample of randomly selected parents at each school. It is designed to assist the College in gaining an understanding of parents’ perception of school climate, student engagement and relationships with our parent community. Our school will use the survey results to help inform and direct future school planning and improvement strategies.

The survey will be conducted online by ORIMA Research Pty Ltd and only takes 15 minutes to complete. The survey can be accessed via desktop computer, laptop, tablet or mobile at any convenient time within the fieldwork period from Monday 7th August to Sunday 27th August.

Approximately 300 of parents will be invited by email to participate in this year’s survey. All responses to the survey are anonymous.

The online survey is available in a number of languages and  survey language guides will be provided. For families who do not have access to the internet to complete the survey online, please contact the college and a computer will be set up in the library to complete the survey .

 

The survey results will be reported back to our school at the end of September. The school will communicate the results in newsletters, parent forums and annual reporting.   For further information, please speak contact the general office or visit:

Getting the most out of Compass

The Compass Management System is an essential tool that the College uses to communicate with the parent community. Information about key information, payments for excursions, reporting on student achievement and tracking student attendance are all done through Compass.  Here are some handy tips:

  • Logging Into Compass: To log into Compass, you need a username and password. If you have lost your log in details or your password has expired, please contact our tech support suite for further support. You can also download the Compass School Manager application on your phone. 
  • Learning Tasks: You can check you child's progress though the semester. Teachers will upload your child's results and feedback on what they did well and areas for improvement.
  • Progress and End of Semester Reports: Progress reports will be available on Compass every 6 weeks as well as the end of semester reports.
  • Book Interview Times for Parent Teacher Interviews: This will be opened up in the next few weeks and you can pre-book interview times to see your child's teachers.
  • College News, Student Attendance and Excursions: You can find out the news around the college and for student cohorts, student attendance records and information about excursions, forms and online payments.

Library/Book Club News

Premiers' Reading Challenge 

During this semester as part of the Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge (VPRC), Library staff and all of the Year 7 & 8 English students and teachers have been involved in a series of Library based lessons in which students were introduced to a range of exciting new children’s fiction, book trailers and provided the opportunity to update their online VPRC records. The closing date for Victorian Premiers’ Reading Challenge is Friday, September 8th.

At this stage, 40 students have completed the Challenge, although there are at least 150 students who have reached or about to reach the target of 15 books, but have not returned a signed reading record to the Library. The Library is about to embark on a series of library based VPRC sessions in the next several weeks. We would urge all students to maintain regular home based reading – of between 2 & 3 hours per week – and to update their online records so that when the target has been reached they should submit their signed reading records – parent or teacher signature – to the library. A pizza lunch, which celebrates the achievements of successful PRC Challengers, will take place in November, during which time the Principal class staff will present students with their PRC certificate.

Children’s Book Week (CBW) is a celebration of adolescent literature and reading, and this year will run from Monday 21st until Friday 26th August. In the past our library has run a variety of fun activities including daily trivia quiz questions on popular books and authors, treasure hunt, film viewing and competitions involving prizes. The Book Week theme is ‘Escape to Everywhere’.

 

The Library is extremely pleased to have organised popular children’s author, Oliver Phommavanh, to visit our Library to perform for all Year 7 students. Oliver is a young Thai-Australian writer for children. He is also a stand-up comedian, worked as a primary school teacher and now spends his time writing and sharing his writing passion with kids and engaging them with humour. His first book, Thai-riffic!, was published in June 2010 to critical acclaim, followed by Con-nerd in 2011, Punchlines and Thai-no-mite in 2012, Ethan in the Stuff Happens series in 2015, and The Other Christy in 2016. His latest book, Super Con-nerd, is a sequel to his popular novel, Con-nerd.

 

If students or parents would like to obtain further information about Oliver and his books, please reference the following site:

Earn and Learn Program

The Woolworth’s Earn and Learn program has commenced and we would like to encourage our students, parents, grandparents, staff, neighbours, friends – and especially our parents & Friends group - to help our school by collecting coupons after shopping at any Woolworths’s supermarket.

 

How does it work? Earn one sticker for every $10 spent at Woolworths. The register attendant should offer coupons once you complete your shopping, although if they do not, it is usually because they have overlooked it. You are well within your rights to request a set of coupons. Completed Sticker sheets or sets of coupons can be deposited in the Earn and Learn box at the front office or they can be placed in the Library’s Earn and Learn box.We hope that a great many of our students, parents and staff participate in this very worthy program so that we are able to purchase valuable equipment or resources for school community. The programs ends on Tuesday the 19th September.

Book Club Excursion

Thank you to Mrs Earl for volunteering her time to take some of the Book Club students to Keilor Downs College for an author event that was held there last week after school.  The presentation was with authors Dannielle Binks and Will Kostakis and they were there to promote their new book called ‘Begin, End, Begin’. This publication is an anthology of short stories written by some of the best loved Australian YA authors. Both Will and Danielle discussed the paths they have taken to become successful authors and engaged us with funny stories as well as giving us some great advice about our own writing and creating short stories.

 

On behalf of Book Club students, I would like to thank Keilor Downs College for hosting the event. We all had a great time meeting the authors and end enjoyed the delicious catering.

Theatresports School Challenge

Victorian Theatresports School Challenge 2017

The creative and enthusiastic TLSC Theatresports crew have been training since February this year each week at lunchtime in preparation for the Victorian Theatresports Secondary Schools Challenge Competition. Prior to this event, students participated in an incursion on Wednesday 22nd February, held by Impro Melbourne, in order to enhance their improvisation skills in Drama.

 

As a final team decider for the main competition, we held an in-house TLSC Theatresports Competition on Wednesday 26th July with the Year 9 Drama class as our excited audience. This event determined the 5 successful entrants to the Victorian Theatresports Secondary Schools Challenge Competition which was held on Sunday 6th August. The following students represented our college in a full day of Theatresports fun at the David Williamson Theatre-Melbourne Polytechnic in Prahran; Jim (Year 11), Deshan  (Year 11), Jessica (Year 9), Milena  (Year 8) and Jade  (Year 8).

I am very proud of our students for their commitment in the Theatresports Program and for being courageous in performing at such a large event. Our team name for the competition was ‘Free Wi-Fi’. We were content coming in at 4th place in the senior’s section and receiving a certificate for our efforts!

 

STUDENT FEEDBACK:

  • ‘The Theatresports experience was a fun and unforgettable time’.
  • ‘It was a great opportunity to meet people from other schools and use our improvisation techniques on stage in front of a live audience’.
  • ‘The challenge was to work in a team and to think quickly and to make up a scene on the spot’.

I would also like to thank all parents and friends who attended the Victorian Theatresports Secondary Schools Challenge Competition and for supporting our talented students in the area of Drama!

 

This year was our first time in holding the Theatresports Program at TLSC. I look forward to seeing many more interested participants in next years’ Theatresports lunchtime Program!

Year 12 

Year 12 Formal 

On the 20th of July 2017, Year 12 students of Taylors Lakes SC had their formal. The event was held at Maia in the Docklands precinct. The venue was amazing and allowed the Year 12 students to enjoy this special evening together. The night began with students entering in style with the ladies in their stunning dresses and gentlemen in their stylish suits. Students were not the only ones who dressed for the occasion, with teachers looking great!

The meals were delicious and certainly different from our usual diet. The DJ for the night was Mr. Whitefield who played a lot of great music and provided students and teachers the opportunity to dance the night away.

 

We would like to thank all the students and teachers who attended the formal. In particular a special thanks to Ms. Lee for the organisation of the event. We appreciate this so much.

 

We will look back upon this night with so many great memories of our time at Taylors Lakes Secondary College.

Year 12 Pyjama Day

On Monday the 24th July 2017, Year 12 students supported the National Pyjama Foundation by coming to school in their pyjama’s. Students raised money for a great cause that provides support for foster children. The day was celebrated with a pancake morning tea. This was organized by the amasing Ms Susanne Johnson and her Year 12 VCAL helpers.

 

At lunchtime, year 12’s participated in a huge game of Dodge Ball and were privy to a beat box performance by a resident year 12 “Beat Boxer” Callum.

 

A big thank you to Ms Massarotto’s VCAL WRS class for their organization of the event and to Ms Johnson for all her hard work.

VET Certificate Dance II 

Melbourne Storm Cheerleading Dance Experience

On the 8th of July, Hayley , Isabelle  and I attended a Melbourne Storm cheerleading clinic.

We arrived at the National Tennis Centre along with another 50 dance girls all us there to learn a dance routine in 1 hour. It was a really intense hour as the choreography was fairly complex to remember and to perform in such a short time. We did not mind as the experience ended up being a lot of fun for all of us. During this time we met others from the Isolation Powers Dance Company the Registered Training Organisation for Dance at Taylors Lakes Secondary College. We were amongst the Melbourne Storm Cheerleaders.

 

This was an amazing opportunity to perform in front of a very large audience and an exciting atmosphere where we could experience another form of dancing as a part of our professional practice. For us this was an experience that we will cherish for years to come.

Fabulous Fashion 

Fabulous Fashion Moments

Take a look at some wonderful work, made by our talented fashion students in semester one.

Year 10 Design and Technology – Fashion students were given a brief to design Pyjama’s for a selected end-user.  

 

They created a mood board of inspirations, designed a range of ideas as fashion illustrations, and modified a basic pattern to suit their chosen style.   

 

 

Year 9 Design and Technology – Fashion students whipped up a great selection of bags. They were able to choose from a variety of basic bag shapes, and adapted the patterns to suit the needs and tastes of their end-user (usually themselves, although some students chose to make their bag as a gift!).  They had the option to add pockets, and could decorate the bag if they wished. Bags produced included draw-string Back-Packs, Hobo, Tote and Satchel styles.

 

Furthermore,  check out the cat modelling its very own cat coat, courtesy of Kristina 9A who completed this as an extra project!

 

Well done!

#Dignitydrive

#DIGNITYDRIVE

Taylors Lakes Secondary College is again getting behind ‘Share The Dignity’ and supporting the work of this special charity by acting as a collection point for sanitary items during August.

Why are we supporting this Share The Dignity?

  • As an organisation, Share the Dignity oversees a number of initiatives that give back to Australian women and children in need, with a particular focus on victims of domestic violence. Their services range from collecting sanitary items for homeless women and those fleeing domestic violence, to funding the funerals of domestic violence victims.
  • To teach students about selflessness civic duty.
  • Students are taught about Respectful Relationships which can help to prevent issues such as family violence.  

Please donate from  NOW until  August 31st by dropping your sanitary products into Ms Relf in the Student Wellbeing Centre (H4) or the General Office.
