Message from the College Acting Principal
Dear Parents and Carers,
On behalf of the Tarneit P9 College staff, I would like to extend a very warm thank you for all your support throughout 2019. We are very fortunate to work with such a beautiful community, dedicated to supporting our amazing students.
A few other special mentions to end our year:
- I would like to take this opportunity to thank and acknowledge Miss Paris Spencer, Mr Mark Zahra and Mr Matt Naudi who did a fantastic job in leading our College while I was away. On behalf of our whole College – thank you! We appreciated all your hard work and on a personal note, it meant a lot to me knowing Tarneit P9 College was in such good hands.
- A very big thank you to our School Council President Robert Wall and school council members Jennifer Treloar, Rawia Arakji, Kristy Mathieson, Anne Marie Parkinson and Emma Gilman for their dedication and support of our College Council.
- We would also like to express our gratitude to Alicia Wright for all her hard work leading the Parent Association this year. Alicia has been amazing in this role for a number of years now, giving up so much of her time to organise key events at our school. Thank you Alicia – we appreciate everything you have done for Tarneit P9 College.
- To our many volunteers who have assisted in the library, in our classrooms, with fundraisers, our swimming program and excursions – thank you very much. We have appreciated your support and enjoyed having you at our school.
- Congratulations to Alphoncine Jule who last week was awarded our School Council Young Leader for 2019, for making significant contributions to Tarneit P9 College . Alphoncine is a SLEEPY mentor, an active member of the Student Representative Council (SRC) and who takes on informal and formal leadership within the school and in the wider Tarneit Community. She voluntarily assisted with the homeless drive and consistently demonstrates the school values, taking part in leading community events at our school. Congratulations Alphoncine!
- We would also like to acknowledge Manvir Kaur Anand and Jye Johnson who were awarded the Young Leaders encouragement award. This special School Council award recognises the leadership attributes of our students across the College.
- Yesterday we were very fortunate to have Ted; the owner of Big Child Care attend our assembly and present our School Captains with a giant cheque for $10 000 dollars to put towards an initiative of our choice. Our community was overwhelmed by the generosity of this gift, and we are looking forward to working with our student representatives to come up with a plan to use this money to further improve our school.
- Finally, I would like to extend a very big thank you to our very talented students and fantastic staff – you make our school a wonderful place to come every day!
Have a wonderful holiday everyone and we are looking forward to seeing you all in 2020.
