LTC IT students learn to keep a secret.

IMG_3354

A number of year 12 students started an 8-week cyclic work experience program with the Department of Human Services (DHS) this week.

The students study CISCO IT networking and will work in the Cybersecurity section of DHS.

This program culminates in a 1-week block of work experience at the end of the term.

This is a pilot program that will expand and our students will get access to many varied areas of IT-based security. The aim of the program is to get students into the workforce providing them with opportunities to put their IT skills into practice.

LTC students help launch H2OK

LTC students studying Sustainability in the Community (R unit) were involved in a media launch by the ACT Government at Lake Tuggeranong on Monday 20 Feb 2017 for the H2OK – ‘Keeping our Waterways Healthy’ campaign.

The campaign promotes “only rain down the stormwater drain” to educate users of waterways to be mindful of what goes down the drain.

The students involved were Jacqueline Ambrose (Yr 11), Mackenzie Smith (Yr 11) and Rachael O’Brien (Yr 12).

Students were lauded by the dignitaries in their speeches for volunteering and the work they do to keep our waterways healthy.

The students rubbed shoulders with ACT Environment Minister Mick Gentleman and Senator Zed  Seseljia – both present at the event’s launch.

Check out the report on WIN TVs Facebook Page for more information on the initiative and to spot our students!

LTC Engineering students measure up at Bunnings

ltc-engineering-at-bunnings-feb-2017

Bunnings played host to 15 LTC Year 11 and 12 students who measured, took photos and worked out designs for their term 1 project – a portal steel framed building to be built in Cooma NSW to house large farm equipment.

Students used laser measuring equipment to measure the sizes of the steel frame and got a first-hand view of how the parts are joined together to make a framed building.

Students are building models of their designs which will be tested to make sure they are structurally sound.

Bunnings shouted us a sausage and drink – what great community partnership.
