LTC Library’s annual Literary Lunch was held on Monday 29 October. Deliciously catered by Decadent (a local business), attendees were treated to a celebration of the written, spoken and sung word as never seen before.
- Toby Grundy, guest author and LTC staff member, took us on a rollicking ride through his career as a writer so far and the brutal underbelly that sat beneath! He shared with us his work as a graphic novelist and the challenges that came with that.
- Julie Murkins, our school principal, shared a heartfelt piece of prose that brought tears to the eyes about a visit to a dear place she calls home.
- Darlene Smith, another LTC staff member and first time Literary Lunch contributor, spoke of her passion for LTC with ‘Ode to Lake Tuggeranong College… and Market Day’!
- LTC has some very talented students and we enjoyed showcasing their work:
- Taylah, Ben, and Eve from Toby’s Advanced Writing class tantalised us with opening paragraphs from their pieces of work: Let the beans fall where they may, Loosely based on my divorce, and Relapse.
- Shyrell sang with passion Can’t Help Falling in Love with You.
- ‘Danny’ and ‘Sandy’ (aka Ben and Tilly) gave us a sneak peek at LTC’s musical for 2018, Grease: The Musical, with the song Summer Lovin’! (Nov 14-17, tickets on sale now).
The LTC Library team would like to thank all who participated in our event, and those who attended, to make this possibly the best Literary Lunch ever held! We look forward to repeating the fun again in 2019.

LTC’s Georgia Collins and Anita Greenslade-Palmer (two of the college’s Year 12 Aboriginal students) were honoured for their completion of the Australian Indigenous Mentoring Experience (AIME) at a celebratory dinner hosted by the University of Canberra on Wednesday 26 September 2018.
The dinner celebrated a Canberra-wide graduation of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Yr 10 and Yr 12 students. The girls had a great time. Well done and thanks to Darren Brady and the AIME team for the wonderful programme opportunity.
As part of the soon to be launched national campaign, Students Need School Libraries, three talented LTC Year 12 Media students were commissioned to create a series of short films to promote the message. These films were launched at Lake Tuggeranong College Library on Thursday 20 September to a crowd of over 30 people.
LTC Teacher Librarian (and campaign coordinator for Students Need School Libraries), Holly Godfree, LTC Media teacher, Stefan Kussy, and Media student Andrew, introduced the campaign and the films to those that gathered and then showed a select number of films ahead of the national campaign’s official launch on October 16. Popcorn was provided for the audience in true movie-going style and the evening had a celebratory feel as the culmination of 18 months preparation came to fruition.
Congratulations to all who were involved in the success of these films and in preparing for the launch evening!
