Unfurling the Flags

The front of the college looks just a little more complete after a special ceremony today. We have been very fortunate to welcome Mr David Smith MP,  from the House of Representatives  to the college, as our guest.  Mr Smith gifted three new flags for the college and today we had a flag-raising ceremony.

Mr Smith, whose office is also in Anketell Street , spoke informally on what schools and the process of learning about the political process has contributed his own career as a politician.  He talked to our students about the value of thinking broadly about a career in politics or in the political workforce, given Canberra’s unique situation at the centre of Australian politics and governance.

Unfurling the flags was a memorable experience for Leila Rickman, Year 11 student representative on the LTC board; Shaun Payne, Year 12 student representative on the board;  and Rourke O’Doherty, Year 12 an all-round good person.

Saying Goodbye to Ella.

So the drama kids did a surprise party for Ella Hartenberg as she is leaving. Ella has been a student with the with college for around 18 months so of course she looking forward to returning to the USA, as you can see however she is going to miss her friends from L.T.C.

The Changes to the Bus Timetables

From Saturday 18 July 2020, Transport Canberra will be updating timetables for bus services.

These changes will help make public transport in Canberra easier to use by providing more services and increased frequency, to ensure that people have greater opportunity to spread out their travel across the day as we recover from COVID-19.

Transport Canberra has worked closely with the school community and we are providing increased frequency and additional services for school students across Canberra.


As a new timetable is being introduced, there will be minor changes for all students travelling to and from school on public transport across Canberra from the first day of Term 3, 2020 (Monday 20 July 2020). In most cases, this will mean that students will catch the same service from the same stop, but the times that services arrive and leave may change.

All schools, parents and students can find out more about the specific changes by:

You can help make sure everyone is prepared by letting parents, students and others in your school community know about the changes through school emails, social media, newsletters or notices. To assist, I have attached information about the specific changes for your school to this letter.

Should you have any queries regarding your school service or regular route services servicing your school please call 13 17 10.
