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!

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.
Year 11 and 12 students, teachers and staff gathered for the traditional first week photo… welcome and welcome back to all and sundry. Here’s to a great 2017!

On the 5th and 6th of November, seven LTC Year 12 students and three members of staff entered a team in the Cancer Council’s Relay For Life event held at the Vikings Erindale Sportsground.
Relay For Life is a chance for communities to recognise and celebrate those who have overcome cancer or are undergoing treatment, as well as the people who care for them. Relay also provides an opportunity to celebrate the memory of loved ones lost to cancer. Teams participate in a relay-style walk, challenging themselves to stay on the track overnight and to keep a team baton on the move for 24 hours.
As well as raising awareness, the event is an opportunity to raise funds for The Cancer Council. The LTC Team would like to thank all those who donated to the team and to individuals. To date, over $1200 has been raised by the team. Well done!
Finally, the 2016 team would like to challenge any potential 2017 team – 302 laps were walked this year…can we beat that next year?
