LTC Arts Festival Opening
Our Annual Arts Festival opening on Wednesday was successful, we were lucky to have Bill Sanders Rotary Art Award organiser and John Britton Tuggeranong Rotary Youth and Vocational Director (from the Rotary Club of Tuggeranong) officially opening the festival for us.
Thankyou to all of the family and friends of our talented arts, photography and media students who attended. Massive well done to our arts staff for all the work that went into setting up and putting on the event for the students and school community.
The exhibition will continue over the weekend (alongside the Southfest event) and Monday and Tuesday next week. Head to the upstairs area of the library to check it out!
Thanks to Ranjan and her Independent Living students Maranda Leon, Charlotte Luff, Clea Le Robinson, Shannon Yalg and assistant Sue Campbell for preparing an amazing selection of canapes for the opening event.
Rafe Yang and James Shaw performing at the Tuggeranong Arts Centre for the Southfest Launch Lunch
On the 16 November 2019, from 10am-3pm, SouthFest will again bring life to the streets, laneways and lake foreshore of the Tuggeranong Town Centre.
The SouthFest vision is that our whole community can join in. That everyone can find their rhythm, beat, activity or flavour. That everyone is more connected to our community. That we all walk away feeling a sense of #TuggersPride.

Connor Brookhouse volunteering at National Zoo and Aquarium
One of our lovely students Connor Brookhouse, has been attending a volunteering role at the National Zoo and Aquarium every Wednesday afternoon since August. He assists the Senior Aquarist and Reptile Keeper, with feeding and handling. He has relished this opportunity and has been lucky enough to secure an ongoing placement. Connor will commence a Certificate II in Animal Studies at CIT next year to further his studies. Well done Connor 😊
Kate Jones (LTC Library) Unsung Heroes Shortlist
She might shy away from the limelight, but our Kate Jones in the library multimedia room is a shining star of excellence in our LTC community. Kate’s been nominated for Education HQ’s Unsung Hero Award. So, we’re asking you (yes, YOU!) to please vote for Kate asap (with all of your different email addresses) and to please spread the word to others who might be keen.
Kate is a living breathing library catalogue and a human ‘teacher resource’. She’s worked in our library since it opened 20 years ago and balances her rich corporate knowledge with innovative practice. She is thorough, highly organised, 100% reliable, prompt, kind, wise and funny. Teachers, teacher librarians, students, and admin staff all trust her and seek her out as an in-house expert and effective problem solver. She also is deeply knowledgeable and compassionate about students with disabilities and their families, using that knowledge as a lens for us to consider things we may not have. She NEVER seeks praise and yet is a lynchpin in our school.
