Principal’s Message

Our Twenty Fifth Year College Carnival to be held on 26 May at the Secondary campus is fast approaching. A team of volunteers has been working on the organisation of the day since last year ready to mark our 25th birthday celebrations.

A Bye for the Secondary TAS Sport Competitions has been organised, allowing students and families to make a day of the celebrations which commence at 12 Noon til 7.00pm, ending with the excellent fireworks display.

The Carnival always brings out the best in our community as people come forward to support the stalls with donations of items for sale or give their time and energy to work in the stalls during the day.  Have you cleaned out your bookshelf to donate to the Second Hand Book Stall or have you plans to bake cakes, biscuits and sweets for the Cake Stall. Our Old Collegians will be manning the Bar or perhaps you can assist on roster at the Supporters of Sport BBQ. A list of the Stalls requiring your support is provided below.
