Our team, consisting of Rory Birnie, Rory Budgen, Yumi Callaway, Brady Coghlan and Tasman Hudson, performed brilliantly to make it into the top ten proving their worth against some very well-known academic schools.
CIT Music Extension Gig
Secondary Schools Chess Open
On Friday 17th June, five LTC students competed in the Secondary Schools Chess Open at Telopea Park School. The students were Phoenix Coleman, Jackson Dickie, Kai Elphick, Joel Rosa and Dylan Whitley.
This is the first school chess event that has been run for a couple of years due to COVID.
Congratulations to our students who placed 6th out of 24 teams and a particular mention to Dylan Whitely who placed equal third as an individual player.
Drama in Context
In Drama In Context, students experimented with changing the time and place for famous Shakespearean plays to comic effect.
Key acting techniques explored were audience participation, the use of a Joker to direct the audience and to get their opinions and suggestions, image theatre (where actors are posed before beginning the scene) and direct address to the audience.
APS Career Starter Program
The Australian Public Service (APS) Career Starter Program is an award winning, entry level program coordinated by the Department of Finance that allows participants to build skills on the job, learn through structured training and work as part of a team.

As a Career Starter, you will have a full-time permanent job with a competitive starting salary in the APS.

Vocational Learning Options
Vocational learning options or VLOs are a career education and vocational learning program that aims to strengthen students’ engagement with their learning and career planning.
VLOs provide an opportunity for students to make a connection between their school learning, interests, career aspirations and a future area of study, training or work.
VLOs provide a vocational learning experience for students whilst attending high school or college.
VLOs help students to:
· build their career management skills
· gain knowledge about career options and vocational pathways
· develop general capabilities and new technical skills for work
· relate classroom learning to life outside school
· engage in vocational learning activities not offered in a school environment
