Competition and this weeks cover

Currently the second of our Instagram Competitions has been running for the students at Lake Tuggeranong College. The competition, initiated by Student Life, has provided the students with an opportunity to submit photographic images based on the idea of Looking Out.

Our cover this week features the work of Connor Green, a very evocative and moody piece that relates well to our theme.

ACT SCALING TEST (AST) 2021 – “Thanks”

Hello all, it is with great pleasure and a significant amount of relief that I can safely say the AST for 2021 has been completed*

There are a significant number of people who need to be acknowledged in the work they have done in getting our AST cohort to this point and also in the behind the scenes organisation to enable this event to occur. In no particular order, I’d like to acknowledge the particular efforts of the following people. 

  •     Sarah P- for all the background admin work she did in assisting Elliot and then me to get things organised for the days of the AST. A superb effort!
  •  Jen and Damien- for running an amazing prep process considering the challenging circumstances we found ourselves in. I felt our students were as well prepared as they could be considering the circumstances of 2021. 
  •     Cameron T- for the assistance with the Special Case provisions.
  •     Barry- for the desk setup in the Gym. 
  •     Letitia- for the catering and other assistance in ensuring our covidsafe plan for the AST was compliant. 
  •     Peter C and Richard- for the “heavy” backup when needed with students and the BSSS. 
  •     The College Life Team- for supporting students who were considering not sitting the AST and working on their confidence. 

I’m sure I’ve forgotten to thank somebody explicitly, so I do most sincerely apologise if I have done so!

Lastly, I’d like to thank the entire staff. The readiness and preparedness of our students to be able to sit the AST is a direct reflection on your passions and classroom practice, whether you taught T students or not. Everyone here has a positive influence on how our students approach their studies and is reflected in the fact that there were no unexpected no-shows for the AST

With Thanks, 

*Yes, I’ve still got a small pile of paperwork to do
