A message to our Students from your Principal

Good afternoon students,

I hope you are going ok during this interesting time.

As the majority of you are away this week, I wanted to touch base with you as your Principal to let you know that we miss all of you, and that we want and need to continue to stay connected with you as you people throughout the rest of this term, and also through whatever next term throw at us.  Just because some of you may not be here, it does not meant that this connection is not important; it perhaps more important now more than ever. 

Very shortly we will send to you and your families specific information about how we will do this holistically.  As a brief introduction though, The Thomas More Connected Learning Model aims to ensure that we stay connected as a Community.  It connects the key elements of learning, wellbeing and spirituality by embracing technology.  It creates both collaborative and personal learning experiences online; however, we are not just going online, we are remaining connected.

I want to also show you how we are asking that all of you connect with us starting tomorrow.  It's important, starting tomorrow and continuing until Friday, and then starting again next term, that you follow a routine and be up and ready to start this vital connection activity.  Please follow the video link here or check out the screenshot.

Please remember that you matter to us, and you matter absolutely. 

We look forward to you staying connected with us this week, and as Term 2 starts.

Take Care,

Mr Tavella

A message for Year 12 students


We are particularly mindful and supportive of you this year.  Year 12 is a short year and as such we always recommend that the senior class does not see the scheduled holiday breaks as time off from learning and assignments but rather breaks from scheduled classes. 

Over any break it's important to maintain a healthy balance of relaxing, recharging, reenergising and study, it's important to remember though that no year 12 can afford to have a complete break from schoolwork for the duration of the holidays.

Work that has been set and marked as due in week 11, during the holidays or at the start of next term should all be submitted by the due date. If extenuating circumstances exist that make this difficult then as per usual communication with your subject teacher is critical.

The SACE Board (Year 12) and SATAC (Uni Entry/ATAR) have just released a 'You Can't Ask That' Q&A video, with the Executive Officers of both organisations asking and answering questions, I would suggest that all Year 12 students check it out here.
